Coming Home is the second installation of the Chandler Inn series. Though this is book #2, it is a great stand alone book.

Camilla ‘Cami’ Chandler’s grandmother Violet ‘Lettie’ passed away and left her the Chandler Inn, the Winery, and the gorgeous land. Cami comes home from France to the beautiful Willamette Valley in Oregon, back to the Inn where she grew up in. As a 24 year old fine arts major with no experience running an Inn, Cami surely is a natural as she enjoys welcoming and greeting her

This is the second book in the Chandler Inn Series. I recommend that you read the books in order to get the maximum satisfaction.

Book 2 in the series takes us back to Oregon and the Chandler Inn and winery. Lettie has died and left the land and the inn to her granddaughter Cami. Even though Cami is young, she has a love of the land that is similar to her grandmothers. Cami faces great challenges to learn to run the Inn and the winery but she is resilient and caring like her grandmother and is ab

There is so much to love about this book. This is the 2nd book in the Chandler Hill Inn series. It can definitely be read as a stand alone, but I would highly encourage reading the first book to really understand the background of the full story. Lettie, Cami's grandmother passes away and leaves Chandler Hill Inn and Winery to Cami. With little knowledge on how to run an Inn she has some big challenges to overcome including financial and employee issues. Her character is strong and resilient. I ...more

I knew from the beginning of the book this was going to be a favorite because when Cami came to take over Chandler Hill Inn and Winery, she went to her grandmother's favorite spot. When she closed her eyes, the memories that came gave her the answers she needed. She didn't know a lot about the business but she had promised her grandmother she would take over the business.
Her grandfather was there to help her and she met Drew who only wanted to be friends which was perfect because her French boy

This second book in the Chandler Hill series was as engaging as the first, Going Home.

Coming Home is the 2nd book in the Chandler Hill Inn series. Cami has inherited the inn after the death of her grandmother, and we follow the up and downs that happen as people she trusted don't appear to have been friends in the first place. This is a very enjoyable read, and will touch at all the heartstrings. You could read this book as a stand alone but in my personal opinion it is much better to have read the first book of the series before starting this one. I would definitely recommend th ...more

There's an old saying, "one bitten, twice shy." Drew and Cami were both unlucky in love and were absolutely sure neither of them needed a long term relationship. Introduce a few unsavory characters, some unscrupulous business associates and the want of Cami to know who her father was, makes for a cast of characters written with a depth and style that makes for a truly enjoyable read. This is the second in the series and with any luck there will be more to follow. A must read for all fans of Judi ...more

Thanks so much to the author, Kate Rock Book Tours, and Wild Quail Publishing for the complimentary finished copy of this book in exchange for my honest thoughts, and participation in this blog tour. All opinions are entirely my own.

I'll start by saying, this is book 2 of 3 in the Chandler Hill Inn series from this author, and I was not able to read the first book before diving in to this book. While I do think that I probably would have gotten more out of the story if I had read the first book

Coming Home is the second book in the Chandler Hill Inn Series, written by author Judith Keim. Even though each book can be read as a stand-alone, I strongly recommend reading Going Home, the first book in the series. Going Home is filled with the Chandler family history, and it will help the reader to get a better understanding of the characters that reappear in Coming Home.

Cami Chandler was living in France when she received the devastating news that her beloved grandmother Lettie (Nonnee) pas

Coming Home #2 - This is such an interesting series and this book picks up after Going Home ends. I miss Lettie, but the rest of the cast is interesting, believable and likeable, except the baddies aren't too likeable.

The storylines from the past and present are well blended along with the clear descriptive writing style make it difficult to stop reading. I am happy that Ms. Keim does not use the worn out Stupidity Formula to create chaos but realistic events. These characters know how to live

What happens when the man you thought loved you, callously rejects you via email?

That ‘friend’ is Drew and the attraction is mutual and Bernard senses the threat of competition.

Bernard broke up with Cami via email telling her she was just a summer fling. Now he’s back and wants her back. Ahhhh

Linda' Book Obsession Reviews "Coming Home" by Judith Keim

"Coming Home" by Judith Keim is the second book in the Chandler Hill Inn series. I loved the first book, "Going Home" and think that is best to read both books to have a greater understanding of the significance of the story.  "Coming Home" is an emotional, captivating, romantic, intriguing and intense novel. The themes for this novel are Fiction, Women's Fiction, and Romance. The timeline for this story is set in the present and goes to

I'll admit that the reason I picked this book at my favorite book review site is that it took place in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. I am from southern Oregon myself, and I am always irresistibly drawn to any book that takes place in my state. I haven't read any books by Judith Keim before, even the first book in the series, and I'm delighted to have found her—and it. I will have to go back and read that first book because I am now curious about it! I absolutely loved this story. Right away, ...more

"Cami thought of families. They weren’t necessarily made up of the people who were born into it. Some people left holes behind. Others filled them with new beginnings."

Cami comes home from France to care for her ailing Nonnee, nursing a broken heart because Bernard refused to join her.   Her journey is heart wrenching as she eventually must deal with burying her beloved grandmother; the depletion of her Nonnee's carefully amassed investments; the opportunistic manager of her Inn; and renewed unc

Letti had to carry out the dreams of the Chandler men and Cami now has to see that her grandmothers dreams are carried forward for all of them.

Coming Home is the second book in the Chandler Hill Series. I would recommend reading Going Home first to understand the background of the story thus far. Cami inherits the Chandler Hill Inn and Winery upon the death of her grandmother, Lettie. Cami returns to Chandler Hill from France after leaving a bad relationship behind. She works very hard to carry on the work her grandmother did as well as improving the Inn and Winery. Cami has issues with employees and adjoining landowners to overcome.

She would want her grandmother to be proud of her in this endeavor amidst all the problems she soon discovers. Expenses for the estate were lost by the overseer in some scheme. Yet she hires people that will help the inn maintain its reputation it once had with adding some new and updated aspects. As well as the Willamette Valley wines they are famous for.

I really liked Camilla Chandler. She showed such grace and strength as she endured the death of her Nonnee and took on the job of running the Chandler Hill Inn & Winery. Even though many events happened that could have made her bitter, hateful or wanting revenge her grace and kindness she learned from her grandmother, Nonnee showed through and only strengthened her character.

This is an amazing story of kindness, faith, family, and love. I really enjoyed the different ways family were present

This book is a continuation of the family saga started in Going Home, which followed the life of Lettie, who is Cami’s grandmother. Lettie raised Cami for much of her life, and in Going Home, Cami had the typical love/hate relationship for the winery, inn and all it encompassed, including the amount of time it took her grandmother to run the place..

Now in Coming Home, Cami returns to Chandler Hill after her grandmother passes away. She is now the owner of the businesse

The characters are so well written that you will either love them or despise them. The story made me feel many different emotions, sadness, anger, joy and happiness. The story had many moments where I held my breath waiting to see what would happen.

Cami has inherited Chandler Hill Inn and Winery from her grandmother after she passed away. She has very little knowledge on running the inn and is also dealing with the financial issues of the inn but she is determined to provide a wonderful place for her guests. She becomes friends with Drew Farley who loves to grow grapes and has wine making knowledge and isn't looking for anything more than friendship.

A wonderful story and each book can be read as a stand alone. Coming home has a few stories
