As sweet romances go, June Foster’s A Hometown Fourth of July fits the bill, but there is so much more of an underlying story. The main plot is inspired by a real-life relative of the author, so we can see why the details are right on target.

Max Tate had been adopted into a wealthy, prominent family in the town of Ft. Freedom. But he had always felt disconnected; like he didn’t really belong. Memories of a Hispanic woman plague him, and he wants to track down his birth mother. Max’s parents deny

Max Tate has always known he was adopted, but his parents will not tell him anything about his birth parents. This leaves Max feeling like he doesn't belong, and wondering if there is something wrong with him, that his birth family did not want him. This quest seems to consume him.

My dear friend June Foster, crit buddy and conference croney, just released her second book, A Hometown 4th of July. I am so proud of you, girl. You inspire your readers, and you inspire me.

Max Tate is minding his own business, trying to catch the antique car section of the Fourth of July parade, when ice cream plops onto his head and dribbles down his neck. Her aunt takes the small culprit in tow, apologizing profusely, but the damage is done. Lynn Marshall has met the man she will learn to lov

I like how Max led Lynn to know God. I also like how she did not give up on him finding his birth mother's family. She kept looking even though they were not seeing each other.
She did find that while he was adopted, his parents did love him. They chose him when they did not have children of their own at that time. They loved him. Max thought they did not love him, and kept things about his mom from him. What they kept from him, was how she would leave him as a young child, and go out.
