Home At Last
What she always wanted was right before her eyes.
Jerri Corgiat hit the perfect pitch in Sing Me Home, then gave readers "just the right touch of sweetness"* in Follow Me Home. Now, she returns to the Ozarks with a novel of changing dreams—and steadfast love...
After shaking the Ozark dust from her designer stilettos for the last time, Marigold McKenzie O’Malley headed to Kansas City to find fame and fortune. But now, eight years later, Mari is unemployed, broke, and broken-hearted—and in no shape to resist her older sisters when they drag her back to Cordelia, Missouri, to help their mother after her heart attack.
Still clinging furiously to her big-city dreams, Mari finds she has a disconcerting tendency to go weak in the knees around No-Account Andy Eppelwaite, her best childhood chum and town troublemaker. But even though Andy has gotten his life back on track, he’s hopelessly stuck in the backwater Ozarks—and may not be the kind of man who can forgive Mari’s past mistakes.
If Mari can trust Andy with her darkest secrets, she just might be able to trust that home really is where the heart is...
