Charlie Nash has been a big-city girl ever since her family made a clean break from their small town,

Reviewed for Wit and Sin

Walk Me Home is a heartwarming story that will delight fans of second chance and small town romances. Author duo Liza Kendall made me fall in love with the Braddock family and the town of Silverlake, so much so that when I finished this book I was disappointed I have to wait to read the next one.

Charlie Nash and Jake Braddock fell in love as teenagers, but after a fire claimed the life of Charlie’s grandmother and her family home, the Nash family left town and cut

I can't believe here I am writing my first review of 2020. Where did 2019 go? I hope for all of you 2020 will be a great year. I get to start out the new year with a new to me author. Or maybe part of a new author. They write jointly and I'm wondering it the Karen Kendall part is an author that I've read and enjoyed for years but haven't heard much in a bit.

We shall see.

I'm not a huge fan of second chance romance but this

Charlie and Jake had been sweethearts back in high school and they had dreamed of getting married one day. After a horrible tragedy, everything changed as their world was turned upside down and shook until it fell apart. A boiling pot of grief, resentment, misplaced blame, bubbling anger, bitterness and overwhelming guilt brought a swift and unresolved end to their romance.

As fate would have it, after many years had passed, Jake’s and Charlie’s worlds collided once again. Each had agreed to be

This book was received as an ARC from Berkley Publishing Group in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.

Walk Me Home by Liza Kendall is the first book in a new series. A tragic fire, false accusations, betrayal and a bridezilla for a upcoming wedding. What more could any book ask for? I found this book to be heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time, I laughed at the comments about the bride to be as she turns almost everyone in
Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews
I liked this story, but it took a while for me to get in to the characters. I loved the back story and the supporting characters, but it tended to be too detailed in certain spots. Charlie Nash returns to Silverlake to attend a family wedding. Being there brings up a past she has been running from. Firefighter Jake Braddock has had a rough go at life. Trying to escape his past, then Charlie returns and brings it all back. These two are just so gun shy around each other and want so desperately to ...more

The start of a new series which means many characters to meet. This was also my first Liza Kendall read and I am sure I will be reading more. A book charged full of emotions, regrets from the past, hurts from the past, unwanted sparks for old flames, to new feelings of moving forward and healing.

Charlie hasn't been back to Silverlake in a long time. Her family moved away after the tragic fire that killed her Grandmother. She left her heart in Silverlake all those years ago with Jake, sure she

Walk Me Home is a tender romance novel that will certainly get you emotional. The story follows Charlie Nash and Jake Braddock, high school sweethearts that were torn away by a tragic event. After the unfortunate event, Charlie's family casts Jake out and Charlie ends up moving away, leaving Jake in the dust. Years later, Charlie comes back into town for a family wedding and she comes face to face with Jake. Was their tragic history enough to keep them apart forever, or will their reunion be ...more

“Walk Me Home” is a wonderful start to a new series by Liza Kendall. I was thrilled to receive an ARC of it, as it had me hooked from the first paragraph and kept me hooked through all the intriguing twists and turns of the storyline.

I do love a classic Romance tale especially one that is focused on the young at heart. Walk Me Home tells the story of the on again off again relationship of Jake and Charlie of how they once got their love lost and thanks to a wedding, they are reunited again and determined to fix what was broken. This was a heartwarming story

Walk Me Home is a second chance romance set in a small town. When Jake was younger, his family was broken apart from tragedy and he found himself spending more and more time at his best friend, Brandon's, house. Pretty soon, the Nash's practically adopted him and he started to stay at their house full time. However, when his parents caught wind of his and Charlie (their daughter's) romance, they kind of gave him the boot. Shortly after that, the house caught on fire, and even though Jake went in ...more

Walk Me Home by Liza Kendall is the 1st book in her new Silverlake Ranch novel. We meet our heroine, Charlie Nash, who has just returned to Silverlake, Texas to be a bridesmaid for her cousin’s wedding. Charlie and her family left Silverlake years before, after a tragic fire destroyed their home, and caused the death of her grandmother.

Jack Braddock, our hero, and a firefighter in town, is determined to avoid Charlie at any cost. Jack and Charlie were teenage sweethearts, and have not seen each

Charlotte "Charlie" Nash has returned to Silverlake, TX to serve as a bridemaid in her cousin's wedding. A tragic fire drove her and her family out of Silverlake years ago. It is really tough for her to return but she can't let her cousin down. The fire claimed her grandmother's life and it was blamed on the teenager living with the family at the time, Jake Braddock. Charlie and Jake had feelings for each other back then but the tragedy destroyed the relationship. Jake was 100% innocent. He had ...more

Charlie Nash is coming back to Silverlake, Texas because her cousin is getting a Bridezilla. But dealing with the crazy woman is not the only challenge that she will have to face. Silverlake is full of memories for Charlie and for Jake Braddock, her first love who became a firefighter and never left town.

When Jake's parents died when he was younger, one of his brother took on the role of father figure but with time, all the siblings more or less became estranged and Jake spent most

I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

I liked this one, although it was a bit heavier than I was expecting. It's a contemporary romance, but with a lot of baggage from the past (that's not a bad thing, I was just expecting it to be a little lighter than it is). I liked the main character, and also liked the relationship between the main character and her best friend, and that the best friend is the love interest's brother. However, although most of the plot made

Loved this second chance romance. It was a prefect combination of sweet moments, not only between the main characters, but also with the secondary characters. The author did a brilliant job of providing a mixture of love, humor and angst.

Will definitely be adding more of her books to my TBR.
