    Sadly this did not uite work for me despite the premise sounding interesting It was light on romance suspense mystery well everything Even the humor was just so so Light romance I understand But something else has to engage me if that's the case I started skimming by the last 3rd of the story sorryBut for what it's worth I really enjoyed the regional speak; all those Australian slangs it's cute Courtesy of publisher via Netgalley

    Home Truths by Louise Forster was a good read that I enjoyed I have never read this author before but I would certainly pick another one of her books up to read Home Truths is Calum and Jennifer’s story It is full of loss family drama and new love Home Truths was hard to put down and it’s story I will rememberJennifer has a busy life that she loves She is a chef and she is in demand What could she want? She finds out her beloved uncle dies and flies to Tumble Creek Australia where she is surrounded by a town full of people who loved her uncle She also gets to catch up with her sister and her niece Everything starts to go wrong when she arrives There is a stranger in her uncle’s house and she gets interrogated by the police When things calm down her mother starts calling to harass her because she wants to be at her uncle’s funeral for appearances sake On top of that she can’t seem to get one of the locals off her mind Calum has haunted her thoughts since she met him She doesn’t need any entanglements in Australia because she plans to go back to London Will she follow through with her plans? Or will she take a detour and find true love?Calum knows the moment he sees Jennifer that she is the one for him He must admit that she is even prettier in person her uncle has shown him pictures of her and talk about her over the years It feels like he already knows her but he wants to know everything about her He will help do anything just to be around her When she wants to figure out the truth about her family secrets he will be there with her The they are together the he knows he doesn’t want her to return to London Can he show her in the time that she is there that they are meant to be together?

Will they recover from this? Or will he end up losing her?I really enjoyed Home Truths it had the right balance between romance and mystery I liked that it wasn’t just about romance and that there was to the story I liked the story and I really liked the characters My favorite character was the uncle even though you only get to know him through the memories and through the secrets discovered I thought he was a really good guy and it showed in the devotion of all the towns’ people I would recommend Home Truths to anyone who enjoys a good contemporary romance

    I received a copy of Home Truths from the author in exchange for an honest review I can honestly say that I really enjoyed reading this novel It was entertainment and romance all bundled up together This story begins with a woman named Jennifer who is on her way to her uncle’s funeral Currently residing in London she travels all the way to Australia—a place called Tumble Creek She meets up with her sister and niece upon arrival and scope they all scope out her uncle’s pharmacy which looks like it has been vacant for months Upon further investigation she is welcomed to the town by the police and an Australian cowboy named Calum Little does she know that Uncle Bob has some secrets that he has kept from her her family and the town Jennifer being a chef from London isn’t too interested in uncovering anything at first Knowing that her uncle was a good man she finds herself being drawn to the secrets as the stay in Tumble Creek becomes and of a home Can she see herself giving up a life in the nice big city of London for a small town in Australia? My favorite characters are Claudia and Calum Calum is not very mysterious at all and instantly falls for Jennifer upon arrival in the small town He keeps close but knows that she may leave as soon as the funeral has commenced He is witty honest compassionate and very helpful around the house—the best electrician in the town Claudia dresses all in black but I really love her enthusiasm and spirit Even though she looks “gothic” she has a lot of spirit and say in both Jennifer and Sofie’s life I absolutely love her speech at the funeral but I don’t want to say too much In my opinion this book deserves four stars I thought that the overall story had a wonderful vibe full of romance and mystery The pace flowed easy and uick which always makes the read better I think that the author did a wonderful job with character development and the content was highly original The only thing that I really did not find too much interest in was Bret He came into the story uickly as the brother of Jennifer and Sofie; however his story didn’t uite seem to fit in anywhere Sure he had his troubles that he needed his sister to get him out of but it still didn’t seem to make too much headway in the whole story plot It seemed to have just been dropped in as an unnecessary problem that was uite exaggerated I look forward to reading by this lovely author and I thank her for allowing me to read Home Truths

    In Home Truths by Louise Forster Jennifer has come to Tumble Creek Australia from London for her beloved Uncle's funeral From the moment she meets up with her sister and niece in Tumble Creek things seem a bit off There is mystery surrounding their Uncle's life and mysterious events happening in Tumble Creek If something is going to happen it will happen to Jennifer There is a lot happening besides Uncle Bob's funeral and Jennifer meets Calum a handsome Australian who has her insides uivering At first Calum is just helping her out then he's keeping her safe and things uickly become hot and heavy between them Despite the promise and beauty of Tumble Creek especially compared to grey dull London Jennifer has no plans to stay She has plans in London and every intention of going back When Tumble Creek starts to feel like home and her feelings towards Calum just keep growing there is still trouble brewing and unsolved mysteries Soon it all feels like too much and Jennifer starts to panic Will Jennifer ever uncover Uncle Bob's mysteries? Will Jennifer leave behind all she's found and the promise of Tumble Creek? Home Truths is a fast paced easy to read and follow book It is entertaining with fun dialogue and some hilarious scenes that will have you laughing out loud and wondering about those pink stilettos Jennifer and Calum's romance may be uick but at the same time Louise gives us a sense of realism with her character descriptions their strengths and their weaknesses Louise manages to keep you guessing just when you think you've figured out the mystery of Uncle Bob with her multi layered plot The sub plots in Home Truths added an extra bit of intrigue even if for some of them I would have liked a little less unknown and background There are a lot of family dynamics in Home Truths and Louise writes these in well so that they give us the information we need but don't overwhelm and take away from the plot The people in Tumble Creek and the characteristics of the small town really give a lot of strength to Home Truths It is the perfect setting for this story and Louise's descriptions of Tumble Creek will have you right there with everyone else Any romance reader that loves a small town setting a bit of mystery and a heroheroine that can really steam up your pages will enjoy Home Truths

    I received a book for review from Net GalleyJennifer and her sister come back to Tumble Creek for their uncle's funeral There is a mystery surrounding him they didn't know he'd been ill before he died in his sleep They meet the locals and Jennifer is instantly attracted to Callum Their brother is also in trouble and there are strands of mystery and suspense running through the book What are the Russains desperate to find in the chemist property and is everyone in dangerJennifer eventually decides to make a life back in Australia and the romance side of the book takes overI think this would be a 35 star read for me
