My Home To Me Review . . . 

I'm always a fan of Catherine Bybee as she never disappoints me with her stories.  They are always full of heart and suspense.  

We met Matt and Erin in My Way to You, book one.   In book 1 we were eluded to Erin's past but it was not confirmed nor where are the details there until here in Home to Me.    We also knew Matt had a crush on Erin, but weren't sure how that was going to play out.  

Every character in this story was so well done.  I loved all the interactions and bantering between everyone.

"Yeah, I saw.  But what does that have to do with this?"
The timer buzzed with another batch of cookies.  These ones were strawberry-filled sugar cookies. "Matt."
"Matt asked for a sugar high?"

I also like that it didn't drag on with Erin pushing Matt away and being a martyr, instead she opened up pretty quickly and trusted others.   I liked that there wasn't unnecessary angst.    I also liked the sweetness of Matt.

"If you were a tiny bit of a jerk it would be easy to push you away."
Matt batted his eyelashes as if he were a lost puppy looking for scraps at the dinner table.  "My mom says I'm a good catch."

All of Matt's family is awesome and I can't wait to get Grace's story.  I also hope we eventually get Austin's story as well.   He seems like such a great character.   But Grace's strength and loud personality will give whomever she ends up with a run for their money.  But I think the journey is going to be with it. 

Sure there was some predictability with this story, but there was still enough to pull you through.   It ended with no loose ends which I appreciate.  Liked the story and loved Erin and Matt together.

"Your dreams should be a testament to who you are now.  Maci was a victim.  Erin is a fighter."
4 Fighting thumbs up!
