Review: Called Home: Two Hearts Answer by Gloria Schumann

Called Home: Two Hearts Answer by Gloria Schumann

Paperback, 342 pages
I received this ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. 
Thank You.

Emma Benson's view of life was crafted by the death of her brother as a child, abandonment by her father and later, the man she trusted she would marry, until David Schlosser -back in town after years in New York writing best-selling novels- threatens her neatly tended life. Romance blooms. Emma and David eventually persevere in the face of tragedy, refusing to leave their dreams behind.

When the author, Gloria Schumann, contacted me I knew nothing about the book or about her. So I didn't know if I was going to enjoy or not her book. And I'm glad to say I really liked it.

At first sight, Called Home: Two Hearts Answer looks like a normal romantic story. The main characters are presented almost immediately, so there are not long introductions. Emma, a really stubborn woman with some love related problems returns home (to her small town) to help her mother with her farm, and there she will meet again David, a best seller author who tired of New York is also back in town. 
The romance is kind of obvious at the beginning (you know what is going to happen) but really sweet and enjoyable, specially how Emma behaves at the beginning of the story, where you can see a little bit of love-hate relationship between them, that made me laugh a couple of times. (You can read a teaser here- Teaser Tuesday)  Also, this book is clean, and what I mean is that there are only kisses, so this is a good book for those who prefer avoiding sex scenes. 
And then, after some pages is when you realize that this is not a simple romance novel, there is also suspense and mystery, something that I really enjoyed and made the story more complex and interesting. I couldn't stop reading until I finished. 
So, what can I say? This is a really good book, with nice characters and a good plot. So if you like love stories with a little bit of mystery, you should try this one. You will not regret it.

I really like it!
