Temperance Levine had her entire world ripped away from her at eighteen. What had once been a life full of light and happiness was torn to shreds in the blink of an eye. With nothing left but a broken heart and painful memories, she ran away from the only home she’d ever had and tried to start over somewhere else. But the grass isn’t always greener on the other side, and s ...more

4 1/2 stars. Hayes and Tempie's story was beautiful. A second chance romance 20 years in the making!!! Tempie fled Hope Valley after a VERY traumatic situation and hasn't been back because it is too painful. She made a selfless decision so that Hayes could follow his dream and hasn't really felt whole since she left. Hayes has also tried to move on but Tempie is his other half. So many feels. Once they started to really communicate, the love blossomed. A bit of mystery carried over from the prev ...more

Both hero and heroine are pathetic. She compared men with hero, hero became a whore a week after she broke up with him. That only means he really wanted to have sex with anyone and he couldn’t wait for more than a week. There’s OW drama throwing in the heroine’s face how she had hero’s dick. The same woman who caused drama in the 1st book because she too had slept with that hero from book 1.

Wowza! Come Back Home Again grabbed my attention (and my heart) from the first words of Temperance and Hayes’ story and didn’t let go until the very end.

Okay, straight up honest here . . . I struggled a bit to read Out of my League, the first book in the Hope Valley series. It was hard to keep track of all the side stories and to really connect with the lead characters. But, OMG, I had none of the same problems with Come Back Home Again.

This book was amazing an amazing second chance romance with suspense in it. I loved how this story unfolded and the way things happened had me swooning over Hayes. Hayes is a great guy who loves Tempie with all his heart and he will do anything to protect her and keep her safe so when she ups and leaves it breaks his heart.

Years later she comes back for a family emergency and when she sees Hayes she can't help but fall back in love with him. Only this time someone is determined to hurt Tempie a

The blurb is not appealing AT ALL. These “runaways” annoys me sooo much.
And then Leonor wrote a review (that I didn’t read..yet) and she didn’t seem happy. And I trust her. Now I am going there to read it.
I’ll link it here as soon as I finish.😁😉

Valeen Robertson (Live Thru Books Blog)

When Tempie comes back home to Hope Valley to see her aunt before she passes, she never expects to have a second chance with her first love, Hayes. Hayes has spent the last 21 years since Tempie left town, regretting their breakup and that she was out of his life. Now that she's back in town again, even if it's temporary, he can't help but to want a reunion with her, the only woman he's ever loved, the woman he's loved every day since they first got together.

There is no place like home!

This is definitely one of my favorite series ever, and I'm only on the second book. Come Back Home Again is actualy a standalone part of Hope Valley series, and now we get to really the story between Temperance (Tempie) and Hayes.

And, boy, what a story. High School sweethearts, they were the epitome of love and all we knew about fairy tales! But after a hige tragedy and some serious issues (no spoiler), they go their separate ways, and not only them, but the whole tow

I loved this book! I love that it's a second-chance romance. I love that it has "seasoned" characters. I love that it's a bit suspenseful as to who the villain is. I love that there's a kidnapping (I'm a sucker for a good kidnapping story!) Hope Valley seems like a wonderful town to live in and I now want to move there and be friends with ALL the characters. :)

A great second chance romance with a suspense element weaved in. I enjoyed the chemistry between alpha Hayes and sassy Temperance. Low angst with a lot of feels. A great addition to this series.

When you get a second chance at love would you take it?

This story delivered. I thought I had it figured it, then I didn't, but then I did. Make sense? It really had me guessing. But my first thought was correct. But Jessica really made me second guess myself.

Temperance and Hayes were the fairytale romance when they were younger, they had their whole lives in front of them. But when life throws the unexpected at you things can change in the blink of an eye. What you thought you could weather toge
***5 Stars***

Okay. That was a fun read!

The whole mystery/suspense aspect kept me on my toes, the second chance romance had just the balance of sweet, smexy and angstyness and combined with the rest of the crazy characters who reside in Hope Valley, I couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen next!

It was hard to not end up falling in love and adoration with Hayes and Tempie. Hayes is that good ‘ole boy who left for a bit, but came back home and is more or less content with the way his life

It's a second chance romance, but they have been apart for 20 years or so.

There is a reason that this author is one of my favorites. I originally fell in love with her through the tales of four hilarious ladies in Girl Talk then followed by some of the hottest fictional rockstars ever but nothing prepared me for this series, particularly this book, about finding love in a small town. Every character, no matter their role, is important and piques my interest. I need them to all have their stories told. ALL. OF. THEM.

This was like a thriller romance story, and also an excellent one too! It was so good. It was a romance story with a thriller/mystery element thrown into the mix. I didn’t expect it to go that way at all. I was SHOCKED!!! There’s a lot of twists and turns and this book managed to make me bring out my inner Sherlock. I was ready with my little notebook and my pen to write down every single detail about the murder that happened in this book.

Amy's Review

When you're only eight percent of the way into a book and already know it's going to be one of the best you'll read this year.  That was this book for me.  I fell hard and fast for the second book in the Hope Valley series and it left me with a significant book hangover.  It's been days and I haven't been able to pick anything else up yet.  But I'm not complaining.  Tempie and Hayes are replaying over and over in my head urging me to crack open their book again.

On the heels of the brilliant Out of My League (a total top read for me!), the first in the small town Hope Valley series.... she is back and better than ever y'all, with Tempie and Hayes unforgettable and completely undeniable love story and the second standalone in this addicting series.

Jessica Prince has once again stolen a piece of my heart with this story and gave me a new, competing favorite couple in this brand new book. Come Back Home Again was a sexy, sweet, swoony, intense, sus

This was surprise I wasn't expecting a romantic suspense from Jessica Prince but this was definitely that. Sure it had a second chance theme to it but there was also stuff going on in the background that played into that. I skipped book one but it was no problem at all, I would definitely back track as I liked this one. I have to note this and the previous book have older characters if you're looking for a read like that, this is one to check out.

I absolutely adored the history between Temperance and Hayes!

It gave this one such depth that was really in insightful into the off the charts pull between the two main characters!

Hope Valley is becoming my go-to place - I am in love with this series and the interwoven lives of these beautiful thought provoking characters!

Nothing hits me harder than a well written thought out, emotion packed second chance romance and this one was no exception!

I’ve read almost every book this author has written, and this series has to be my favorite so far. Not only has she evolved as a writer throughout her books, she’s proven that she can take on the alpha man-messes-up-with-a-good-woman subject, add some suspense and regret, and weave a beautiful tale worth reading and rereading!

Temperance and Hayes had young love once, but events, misunderstandings, and tragedy tore them apart, and sent Tempie running for two decades. Now, she’s back to say goodb

This is book 2 of a series. Yep, I am thinking you should read book 1 first. This book has a mystery, action, romance, and a second chance at love. Temperance and Hayes were "the" teen couple of the small town of Hope Valley. This town is depicted as a place where you'd love to live. The writing style is easy to read. You just wanted to keep reading to figure out the mystery that needs to be solved. This group of people will enter your heart and grab it. Dual point of view. No cliffhanger and th ...more

A wonderful, well written 2nd chance romance! Temperance & Hayes are so stubborn, but are completely meant to be. The love between these 2 oozes from the pages, the chemistry can be felt each time they are together. I love Hayes alpha tendencies, he is such a swoony character! Seriously sexy detective, how can one not love him! Tempie has more heartache in her life than anyone should have to deal with. I am completely addicted to these characters; main & supporting.

I knew I was going to love this series after reading the first book, Out of My League, but this installment cemented it as one of my favs and we're only 2 books in!!
This is such a great second chance (with a touch of suspense) romance. Tempie and Hayes have that forever kind of love and are such a sweet couple. There is so much emotion, hurt, anger, misunderstanding surrounding their split 20 years ago but they were just kids. Now that they are older (and possibly wiser), they are able to see th

Words can’t describe how much I loved Hayes & Temperance’s book! I loved the suspense, banter, and these characters. Hayes & Temperance’s journey was full of twists and turns, but was worth it in the end! I couldn’t put down this book and read it in one sitting!

Jessica Prince outdid herself with this book! I can’t wait for more in this series!

Born and raised around Houston, Jessica is a self proclaimed caffeine addict, connoisseur of inexpensive wine, and the worst driver in the state of Texas. In addition to being all of these things, she’s first and foremost a wife and mom.
Growing up, she shared her mom and grandmother’s love of reading. But where they leaned toward murder mysteries, Jessica was obsessed with all things romance.
