Hometown Girl Again (Hometown Series Book 5) by Kristen Fullmer is all about second chances. This is an emotional story filled with three dimensional characters. The story revolves around the lost love of two people, Katie and Alex. After they both show up back in their hometown for different reasons, Katie for a funeral, and Alex with a life-threatening wound in the Army, they must ask themselves if it is too late to rekindle what they could have had. Katie has the additional burden of an unpla ...more

Another heart-warming read from Fullmer, and although I tend to get rather jaded with series novels that go on past three I’m still hooked by the Hometown Girl books.

I felt myself invested and also involved in Katie’s struggles, and was rooting for her and Alex even though early on I wasn’t sure what I’d make of their development together.

Sometimes emotional, sometimes heart-breaking, but a fun to read book along the way makes this a hit from me and Fullmer one of my faves in this genre.

Coming home always brings back memories and sometimes we have the chance to do it all over again. That’s what happens to Katie and Alex. They have the chance to start something beautiful, but this means Alex will have to prove he’s here to stay and Katie has to make room for this old love into her heart and plans.

I loved the story very much. Even from the start, the characters’ honesty is very vivid. Katie is back in town to attend her uncle’s funeral. She is honest when it comes to her feelings

The story starts with the funeral of a distant relative at which Katherine, our leading lady, sees Alex, a former lover, for the first time in years. Katherine receives land and money in the will and decides to start a holiday camping park business. Guess who arrives when she books an electrician to work on site? None other than Alex. The author describes only too well the pent up resentment and tension between the pair and goes on to deliciously tease readers in each chapter with their will-the ...more

Hometown girl again⭐️
Story wise this is the fifth book in the series and I didnt know that when I requested it so my opinion for the plot and characters is slightly useless.
On the other hand, the writing was nice and easy to read. Even though I was confused about past events that happened the story flowed nicey and I was able to follow along.

Thank you so much to netgalley for sending me an ARC copy of Hometown girl again by kiresten Fullmer This will be released on July 10,2018

Fullmer creates a rich world with diverse characters. We get caught in the whirlwind that is Katherine’s life, and ride the roller coaster of emotions. Two lovers brought together despite their external conflicts is a classic theme, but it feels real here. It’s hard not to support these two in the same ways we would our best friends. This story is very rich in raw emotion, and as Katherine works to better her situation (which she has her work cut out for her with the RV park) we see the grit tha ...more

Such sweet stories — Hometown Girl Series

Such sweet stories. Small town girls finding the men of their dreams. Old friends, new friends, lives intertwined. A most enjoyable series filled with stories that’ll bring a rear to your eye and a smile to your lips.

Every once in a while, I seek out a story on finding oneself. This is such a story, for with the lead characters, Katherine and Alex, you learn that we are never too broken to be unworthy of love, and that there's always a place we can call home just as long as we open our hearts to receiving and giving love.
If you also love reading about meddling neighbors, then be my guest- this book's got a bunch of them. It's also got an adorable dog to boot. Thanks NetGalley for the eARC.

While this is the fifth book in a series, I had no problem reading it as a stand-alone novel. Not a 'serious' read, this is a fun romance bringing together former lovebirds when they work on a common project.

Really enjoyed this book. I love Vintage Campers and I enjoy camping. I live in Pennsylvania, near Pittsburgh and know of Uniontown. I was surprised to read the references in the story. Enjoyed the characters. Very Good

I really enjoyed this book. Both characters are changing their lifestyles and coming to terms with their flaws and strengths. A relationship is always about give and take and sometimes that’s a good thing. A significant other can help us bring out the good and curb the bad. I loved watching the park come together too.

Amazing story

A beautiful story written from someone who has knowledge about the knocks life can deliver and having faith in trusting someone to pull you out of the darkness.

Sometimes the best way to send a rainy weekend is with a good romance novel that stirs up emotions and really takes you on a journey. 'Hometown Girl Again' by Kirsten Fullmer is one such novel. The plot is contemporary with relatable narratives and characters that you will very quickly feel empathy for. The story is well written and I enjoyed how it switched between different points of view, as it made the novel flow really well. This is the first novel from the 'Hometown Series' I have read, bu ...more

I really enjoyed this story. I liked how self-contained it was, as it's part of a companion series and this was my first read into the series. I liked how each character was developed and their shared history was hinted at but wasn’t unloaded all at once. I liked seeing a strong female lead, a pensive male lead, and the unique situation that brought them together again.

The romance was a slow burn with friendly sweetness and I liked that rather than seeing detailed sex and intimacy. I liked and

Hometown Girl Again is the final book in the Hometown Girl series. Alex and Katie's story was emotional, heartwarming and shows a second chance at love is possible. I fell in love with Fish, Alex's companion/service dog, who failed his service dog training by the way.(lol) For me, Fish was instrumental in Alex and Katie getting back together. As always the people of Smithville were their meddling, busy body selves. Hate to see this series end, maybe the author will write a novella, updating us o ...more

Recovery

I chose this book because of the description. Both recovering from different pains in life but it's that life that threw them back together. They once shared an awesome love then he left for the Army and she lost her Mom. Her courageous idea of a vintage RV park just might bring them back together.
