good book and characters
The Homecoming - Alan Russell The Homecoming - Alan Russell

Stella had a seven year old daughter named Stella. Her dad- Duncan- called her a pixie. There were ten kids including Stella at the beach with their parents. The had the beach mostly to themselves and every so often a parent did a head count. Stella liked one of the other kids - he was her brother’s best friend- Luke. Stella liked to do things her own way. The next day Stella wasn’t in her bedroom and hadn’t slept in her bed. Stella couldn’t be found and there was no clues to where she was or what had happened. Then seven years later a teenage Stella showed up at her parents door, she had reappeared just as mysteriously as she had disappeared. What was really odd was Stella’s mom Eleanor had planned on taking her life on that seventh anniversary. But she wasn’t the same girl. She told the story of the Travelers and their journey beyond the stars. Travelers were extraterrestrials that communicates telepathically. Detective Cheever is the detective who had Stella’s case from the beginning and had never given up. Another group was tracking Stella as well. Everyone even Stella’s therapist feel’s Stella’s story isn’t true. I enjoyed this book. And felt it was well written and I didn’t want to put this down as I wanted to see what would happen next. I do feel that many questions were left unanswered. And that kind of annoyed me. I do feel the author handled the way the family would act realistically. I also liked the twists. This drag for me at times. I did like the mystery part of this book as well as the romance. I liked the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend.

Spider-Man: Homecoming: Meet Spidey (Pas... Spider-Man: Homecoming: Meet Spidey (Passport to Reading: Level 2 (Paperback)) - Charles Cho
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

"Meet Spidey" is a pretty accurate title for this. That's pretty much all that happens. You meet the characters in Spider-Man: Homecoming and then the book abruptly ends. 

This book is based on the film, Spider-Man: Homecoming. Because it's a Passport to Reading Level 2 book, it's kind of choppy due to the simplifications of the story to make it easier for young readers to read and comprehend. It's a decent introduction to the story. But just when things are getting good and Spidey has to figure out what's going on, the books ends. Kind of a letdown. 

Okay book for fans of Spider-Man.

Three former Navy SEALs
Injured in the line of duty
Desperate for a new beginning...
Searching for a place to call their own.

 

Alex Maguire never thought he'd go home again. The perfect soldier, the perfect leader, he's spent his whole life running away from Blue Valley, Montana―but when a tragic accident bounces him and two of his men out of the SEALs, there's nowhere left to turn but the ranch he used to call his own...and the confusing, innocently beguiling woman who now lives there.

 

Becca Denton's like nothing he could have imagined. She's far too tempting for her own good, but when she offers to help turn the ranch into a haven for injured veterans, he can't exactly say no. He'll just need to keep his distance. But something in her big green eyes makes Alex want to set aside the mantle of the perfect soldier and discover the man he could have been...safe and whole within the shelter of her arms.

 

The Prodigal SEAL has come home.

Cowboy SEAL Homecoming is a sweet and adorable romance.

 

I picked this one up; because of a teaser Anna @ Herding Cats & Burning Soup shared. It’s the first night/morning the guys are at the ranch and that morning a goat gets in the house. That scene was so funny. I had to just smile and laugh. It reminded me of farm life. I didn’t have any goats, but I sure did have several other farm animals. You can check out her review and see the teaser; here. Their was also another goat scene that made me smile as well. Goats, they are just too funny!

 

Becca reminded me a lot of myself. She has been sheltered her whole life; because she was a very sick child and her mother worried, so as a result she’s made animal friends on the farm. I wasn’t sheltered, but I didn’t have many friends and preferred to spend my time outside with my animals then with people. I had a great time watching Becca come out of her shell and stand up for herself and her needs and wants. I like that she wants to open an equine therapy ranch for wounded veterans and her stepbrother is all in to help, now that he is out of the service.

 

Alex returns home after pretty much running away from home. The ranch and town hold difficult memories for him. Coming home he is forced to face his situation and all those memories in the past. My heart went out to him. I would have liked to see more time spent on Alex getting help and dealing with his issues.

 

Becca and Alex are step-siblings, but they didn’t grow up together and barely have any type of a relationship, so the romance; between them didn’t raise any issues that I usually would have with this type of a set up. Their romance isn’t steamy, it’s a slow and sweet build. I think anything more wouldn’t have been believable; especially with how sheltered Becca was and the issues Alex has.

 

I had a delightful time with a Cowboy SEAL Homecoming. It had some wonderful touching moments and showcased life’s struggles and overcoming them.

 

Rated: 3 Stars

Beautiful and heartbreaking
Birthright Vol. 1: Homecoming - Joshua Williamson,Andrei Bressan,Adriano Lucas

When Mikey disappears on his birthday, his father is blamed: after all, Aaron was playing with Mikey near the woods.   One year later, Aaron's life is falling apart - and an adult man who claims to be Mikey shows up, raving about wizards that he has to destroy and a fantasy world that he was supposedly living in during that year.   

 

Except nothing is at it seems, and there's a lot of tension between Mikey, his family and the people from Terranos, the world he's been living in as of late. 

 

Beautiful artwork, gorgeously heartbreaking story that blanches the Earth story and Terranos story nicely.   Wish I had more of this, but alas.  I may purchase or borrow at some point.

Cowboy SEAL Homecoming
Cowboy SEAL Homecoming - Nicole Helm One ranch. Two people. One goal.

Cowboy Seal Homecoming has WINNER written all over it. An act of bravery brings a group of seals full circle and with a little help from a friend inspires a common goal. Ms. Helm teaches a valuable lesson about what courage really means. Bravery does not mean lack of fear, but the strength to take a risk. In fact courage is a lot like faith. Alex and Becca have a history that borders on taboo. Despite the time, distance and heartache that may be headed their way, they bring out the best in each other. She sees the man he really is and he sees the woman she hopes to be.
