When contacted by her long-lost grandmother, Lauren McKaslin wanted to reconnect - with all the warmhearted Montana McKaslins. For too long, she'd relied solely on herself and her faith.
But mistrustful lawman Caleb Stone stood in the way, and his questions about her were intimidating.
Was his attention more than a protective instinct? Now that she believed in family again

This is the 7th book in the McKaslin Clan series. I wish I had read some of the previous books because it would have been nice to have the full backstory, but if you are like me and just picked this one up, don't worry, you'll get to know the other family members in the series soon enough.

Lauren McKaslin is returning to Montana to meet her Gran and other siblings for the first time since her mom ran off with her at the age of 2. There she meets Gran's neighbor and generally nice guy, Caleb Stone

You know, Christian fiction is sometimes refreshing as far as the clean language and lack of sex scenes go, but sugar sweet, unrealistic endings make me want to vomit!!

I like this book. It was really about finding love and reuniting with family after being separated for a long time. Lauren was separated from her family when she was two years old by her mom. Years later, she met them again. Lauren was asked by her grandmother to visit her in Montana. She went there, but was a little nervous. She didn't know how everyone would treat her. But, it didn't turn out as bad as she thought it would. Plus, she found love along the way, and learned how to ride horses. Th ...more

First of all, this book was not about who I thought it would be about. In the previous book, Rachel is mentioned as coming home, so I thought it would be about her.
Nope! It's about long-lost sister Lauren! I really enjoyed getting to know her, and get a feel for her side of the 'mom leaves, takes 2 year old sister with her' nuances that have been mentioned in the previous books of the series. I appreciated how Lauren was able to learn how to trust, and how to see herself as special, not only in

This is technically book 5 of this series of books. But you CAN read them individually without reading the others in the series. I have read books 1, 2, and 3 and they were 'so so' for me but his one I really liked. It was a different setting and the main character didn't seem to obsess over her feelings (like it seemed the main characters in the other books seemed to do). Each book takes one of the adult children and tells their 'story'. This one is of the very youngest child that years before ...more

A McKaslin Homecoming was a sweet love story about new love and family. Lauren was taken from her family when she was 2 years old by her mother. Her mother left behind her husband and 3 children to get out of the small town and try to become famous. Her childhood was rocky and full of mistrust. She couldn't rely on her mom and thought her family didn't want her.

Now she was older (I think 19 or 20) and was invited to meet her grandmother. After many years she gets

Recommended to Lizabeth by: An Investigator!
I know - most of you are thinking "What in the heck is Liz donig reading this stuff! It's not her type of book!" Well, it isn't but it was so bad that it was good. I mean really badly written (redundancy, cliches, not realistic, etc.). When I was on splits with the sister missionaries, an investigator gave them this book to read and I took it because they really don't read much other than BOM on their missions so I read it. I finished it in two hours one evening and felt like I had watched somet ...more

It's not a bad story, but it veered into sappy territory a little too much for my tastes.
The story of a young woman who returns to her childhood home after she was taken away from her family by a mother that never really cared for her is actually pretty sweet and carries with it a pretty strong message of opening your heart to good things.
However, the way it develops had me constantly rolling my eyes.
It might just be I'm not in the mood for this kind of story, but it was a quick, throw-away re

This is book #14 in the series. It is much better than the previous ones with a better plot-not so contrived and repetitive. Lauren reconnects with her family in Montana after her mother abandoned the family 20 years ago, taking Lauren with her. The family she finds is loving, faithful, very bonded, and loves her unconditionally. She not only finds her family, but a man she can really love and trust.
Lauren McKaslin, a woman with trust issues, receives an invation from her long-lost Grandmother, to visit her and the rest of her family in Montana. While there she meets Caleb Stone, a man with trust issues, too. There's a spark there between them but they each keep it to themselves. See how this works it's way into a true romance. A good little read.

I enjoyed this sweet book about family and forgiveness.

Lauren returns to Montana to meet the family she thought didn't want her, only to find that all but one welcome her with open arms. Their love is instant and unquestioning.

There are many different stories in here that I would have liked to see play out, like Jonas for example, but I will hope for the best! I loved the relationship between the sisters and of course "the perfect man", the man in every romance book and makes you insanely jeal

This is another quick, very enjoyable, light read in the McKaslin series by Jillian Hart. Lauren McKaslin, the young lady whose story is the subject of this book, has lots to work through. She is meeting family members she has never known, and her thoughts and feelings seem very authentic. Ms. Hart is touching on many things in this story: breaking a destructive life cycle that has been the only one modeled to you, impulsive judgment, forgiveness, and unconditional love are some of them. This is ...more

I needed a light-weight read for today, and thoroughly enjoyed this work by Jillian hart. The difficulty in trusting, and the unconditional love offered by the family contributed feel-good characteristics to the plot, while the characters themselves drew me into the story.
Jul 14, 2010 Denise rated it really liked it
I really enjoyed this book. I feel there needs to be a sequal though (I don't think one is planned). The premise of the story is that a young child of 2 was taken by her mother. The mother abandoned the rest of her children and husband. She told Lauren as she was growing up that none of the family wanted her. When Lauren is in her 20s and putting herself through school her grandmother hires a PI to find her and invites Lauren to come home and meet the family. Her sisters bond with her right away ...more

I am setting this book for today, but in reality I have read this book about three times. I love Caleb and Lauren, and I love the way Ms. Hart connects these McKaslin books. This is a wonderful family.

I loved this story. There were stories throughout it, however, that weren't quite explained--stories about the sisters and their husbands/fiance' that came into play during the book and, as readers, we weren't given the full story. It would have been nice to have that information just for clarity's sake in case we haven't read all the McKaslin books.

Other than that, the story was exactly what you wanted it to be. Caleb Stone is the best man any woman will ever find and Lauren is a wonderful woma

The Good: Quick reading, a light gentle romance.

The Surprise: I knew how it would end (don't all romances end this way?), but what surprised me was that it was a tear jerker for me -- maybe because it's the Christmas holidays and I'm feeling very much the loss of my own parents.

The Bad: Too predicatable: characters had predicatable rollercoaster ups and downs, two pages up, one page down. I kept waiting for the gotcha on the "report"; which predicatably came -- only it was unpredictably only 25

It was OK but parts of it didn't read quite true and events happened pretty quickly.
Contacted by her long-lost grandmother, California girl Lauren McKaslin travels to Montana to meet her half-siblings and cousins. Local lawman Caleb Stone takes an interest in her, somewhat prompted by distrustful Spence, her half-brother, who is convinced that she's there only to get money.

Romance between the city girl and the cowboy begins slowly, and it's very sweet. Caleb's declaration of love is something all women would want to hear. Lauren's cousins are rambunctious but lovable. This book

I absolutely loved this book. Yet there were no bad guys, no gunfights, no world-hopping adventures. It was entirely about people & the dramas inherent in Life--the people who hurt us, the ones who save us; the danger in living & allowing ourselves to love; all wrapped up in a marvelous journey to a sun-baked ranch not really so far away after all.


I gave this book 5 stars because I'd like to visit it again someday. And I'm on the lo

Okay - I'm beginning to think that maybe I'm not meant to be a Christian romance fan. I won't say I didn't enjoy this book. I REALLY did. The characters really grabbed me, and I was very interested in their lives. Yet, the story seemed too "sweet." I know romance novel endings are supposed to be happy, but, again, the bow was a little too neat for me - to the point of unrealistic. Yet, I really, REALLY enjoyed reading it. Does this even make sense?? Perhaps I need to read another genre next.

I admit it, I'm a romance junkie. I like them everywhere from sweet and innocent to hot and spicy. This one was sweet and spicy. It was an excellent read from cover to cover with believable characters and events. I loved the strong family ties and moral values. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a sweet, believable story. I will definately read more from Jillian Hart.
