Her Homecoming Wish Jo McNally is the story of Dan Adams and Mackenzie 'Mack' Wallace.

But now she is divorced and was planning to return home when her father fell off a ladder so she had to escalate her plans.

Talk about a role reversal… in their high school days, Mackenzie Wallace was the goody two-shoes who never put a foot wrong, and ‘Danger Dan’ Adams was trouble with a capital T. Now Mackenzie is back in Gallant Lake after her perfect life came crashing down around her ears… and ‘Danger Dan’ is a deputy sheriff?

Both Dan and Mack are dragging around an awful lot of emotional baggage, and Dan has a daughter from a failed marriage to consider, but the sparks flying between the two of them are

Labels. Both good and bad. He has dropped his. She is trying to drop hers. When it comes to Mackenzie Wallace, she has spent a lifetime being good, close to perfect, in everything. Problem is, she never had any fun. Meanwhile, Danny Adams was the ultimate bad boy-turned Sheriff. He is also a single dad so he is as strict as he can be so that he can do as much as he can for the town, and his daughter.

Mack is out for fun, and she will do whatever is in her power to bring Danny along for the ride.

This is a sweet read mixed with some humor and a dash of spice. Mac and Danny were good. As much as Mac would like to think she was not such a good girl, she could never fully be a "bad" one. Danny used to be the "bad" boy but with his job as sheriff and his daughter, Chloe; he has lost a lot of his "wild" side. However, being around Mac does bring out some of it in Danny. These two pair nicely with one another.

I like that Mac and Danny did not have an "insta love". Despite the fact that Mac

This is a story about labels - or rather, what we do with them. In high school, Mackenzie was the "good girl" - the perfect student, the model child. Danny "Danger Dan" Adams was the bad boy - the tattooed biker always in trouble. Move on a decade or two and things have changed - Mack is back in town after a failed marriage, looking to shed her good girl image for good. Danny is the obvious choice - but it seems that he has already done some shedding, and left behind his danger days in favour of ...more

Another fun category romance read. Fabulous character growth, watching both try to shed the images from their youth and start fresh was fun to read. Great story, an excellent dash of suspense, compelling characters that were very relatable.
Misty (Reds Romance Reviews)
Mackenzie Wallace has learned that being the quintessential good girl is completely overrated, she use to strive to always be good... but now she has a craving to be bad! She wants to be wild, free, and not follow all the rules down to the letter. And her brothers best friend Danny Adams seems like the perfect place to start, way back when he was the town's bad boy, and she is hoping he can teach her his wild ways.

But there is just one problem, he's now an officer and likes to follow the

Mackenzie always striven to be the good person, the good sibling, the good wife but it all came crashing down and shes tired of being so good. Now shes back to her home town to help keep her fathers business afloat while he recovers from an injury and wants to have more fun with her life.

Mackenzie Wallace was the perfect good girl growing up and had become the perfect wife until she caught her husband cheating on her. Now she is coming back home to lick her wounds and help her father out after his surgery. Mackenzie is tired of being a good girl and is looking to change her ways. Maybe bad boy Danny Adams is still in town looking to get into some trouble.

This was a good small town romance with two decent main characters. My biggest problem with this book was how repetitive it was. I also didn’t like how preachy and judgemental it felt at times. Drinking beer vs a martini has no bearing on if you are a good girl or not. Also, what even is a “good” girl? Especially when you are talking about an adult woman?!?

*Thank you to the publisher for allowing me to read this book for free in exchange for my honest review.

Nothing really new in this story. But a good feel time that was a very quick read. I had a fun time reading about Mackenzie trying to shed her good girl title and trying to bring Danny along for the ride. If you are looking for a quick story to give you all the feels then check this one out.

****** Blog Tour Full Review on my Blog******

What a homecoming, I think we can all agree that high school had us believing we all need to amount to a lot in life and that it all would go as planned because well we planned. I love how this book right here shows us how all that planning might not lead you to a life you wanted or deserve.

This was a really good read, check out my BLOG POST on February 1st for a full review.

I write the same kind of romances I like to read – stories about characters facing real-life challenges with real-life consequences. The stories are emotional, but still have humor, and love always finds a way to pull the characters through together.
