"The Fireman's Homecoming" by Allie Pleiter is the second book of the Gordon Falls series. Now because this is the second book, it is also easily a stand alone book as well.

There is Clark Bradens is a man who has a lot of life experience that has made him into the determined man that he is. His faith is strong, and he has a plan.

Melba Wingate has come home to help her father. Her strength that she shows often through the story is something I would love to bottle and sell. But her strength so

I love books about real life heroes and lately I have a fascination for books about firefighters. It could be that my own son is a firefighter, but I digress. Not only does this book have my favorite type of hero, but it has other topics that are near and dear to my heart, namely Alzheimer's disease and a family secret as well as feelings of inferiority. Put these items altogether and you have the ingredients to a good story.
I love the development of characters in Allie's books and the vulner

When I discovered the first book in the Gordon Falls series by ALLIE PLEITER, FALLING FOR THE FIREMAN, I knew I’d be reading the series. A story about a black sheep son, THE FIREMAN’S HOMCOMING didn’t disappoint. If I had to choose between the Gordon Falls books thus far, I’d say THE FIREMAN’S HOMCOMING is my favorite.

Clark Bradens moves back to his hometown after years away to take over his father’s position as fire chief. One may think it was joyfully handed to him, but having been the town’s

Allie Pleiter writes lovable, relatable characters. I love her voice!

Melba returns home to care for her father who has Alzheimer's. Overwhelmed and discouraged, she could use a friend. Clark, the former bad-boy turned responsible firefighter, becomes that friend. A life-changing secret threatens their blooming romance, and Melba and Clark both come to terms with their pasts and what they want for the future.

From beginning to end, I enjoyed this book. Melba was so sympathetic, while Clark was th
I won this book in a Goodreads First Reads Giveaway.I really enjoyed this book. It's a heartwarming tale of falling into an inconvenient & unexpected love between a small town good girl & former bad boy that left their small town, only to return when their families needed them; as well as the trials & emotions that come with caring for a parent that is falling victim to Alzheimer's Disease.

It also reveals the damage that can come from keeping secrets within the family, while at the
