When You Make It Home by Claire Ashby

When You Make It HomeWhen You Make It Home by Claire Ashby
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What an absolute gem of a book.
This is her debut novel? wow. I am so looking forward to book stalking her!

Now and again I come across an author that really 'does it' for me. I am talking on a personal basis, we all have them right? Well this is another author in the making. Remember her name Claire Ashby.

I was contacted by Red Adept Publishing to ask if I would like to read and review this book with my honest opinion. I have to always repeat myself....its no different whether I am reviewing a book I purchased to if I received it as a gift or asked. I say it how it is 'for me' when I have read it.

This is about Meg. We learn pretty early on that she is pregnant, but she is trying to hide it for all sorts of reasons and one of them being her twin brother.
Her friend is also pregnant but in a solid relationship, so at least she has someone to talk to about it all.

She decided to end her relationship with her fella because of the distance between them getting longer and longer until she realized it just isn't going to work.

When the news comes out about her pregnancy everyone assumes its her ex fella's baby.

We move onto Megs friend, who has a brother Theo who has come home badly scared. Meg and Theo's relationship at the start made me laugh and made me cry. Both parties hurting for very different reason.

That's it! Not saying anymore. You need to read it.

Claire Ashby has woven a real life drama fiction novel which could be true of you, me, your neighbor a friend or relative, that is what makes it so great to read.
Her rounding out the characters was flawless. The dialogue between everyone was fantastic to read and I followed it all the way through with eagerness.

Its a heart rending story that touches you, not tissue wise as such, but hits a soft spot in your [if you know what I mean]

Thoroughly enjoyed reading this today.

Meg Michaels, a bookstore owner, has already walked away from two cheating exes. She’s learned her lesson and has her mind set on success—until she gets knocked up. Embarrassed and unwilling to discuss her situation with friends and family, she wears layers to hide the pregnancy.

When Meg gets sick at a party, she’s mortified. Even worse, Theo Taylor, the guest of honor, discovers her secret. Theo, an Army medic wounded in the war, agrees not to reveal her condition, and the two forge a bond of friendship that blossoms into love.

Theo is soon filling all of Meg’s late-night cravings—and not just the pregnancy-induced ones. But can their love overcome all the obstacles that stand between them and creating a happy family?
