it was amazing


Dayna Wilson is seemingly happy. She's involved in a healthy, serious relationship with Warren Avery, a co-worker she met while learning to Salsa dance. They both came with baggage, Dayna a divorcee and Warren a widower with two sons. But they were both treading through and making things work for them. That is until the green-eyed monster makes an appearance.

Brent Davidson, Dayna's ex, pops up uninvited. It's been seven years since they were divorced and she's not trying
to hear anything he could possibly have to say. Brent is persistent and continues to track Dayna in hopes of apologizing for how their marriage ended. Dayna finally agrees to allow Brent and his wife, Tamara, the time. Will their apology begin a new friendship?

Warren is growing more and more uncomfortable with Dayna and Brent's bond. He knows that she's the woman for
him, but he also sees how Brent looks at Dayna. Will their past wreck their future?

It's not just Warren who is on edge. Tami is beside herself with jealousy, grief and fear. She's desperately trying to be a doting wife, but fears that karma may be presenting itself. With Dayna in their lives, is there still room for Tami?

COMING HOME by Stacy Hawkins Adams is love! From the very first page readers are captured trying to figure out the
angle. You can't help but to immediately sympathize and fall into the past, while rooting for the future. I absolutely loved the conflict, the lessons about learning to pray and trust God, and most importantly, forgiveness. Hawkins is clearly writing books worthy of recommending.
