An Allegheny Homecoming Reviews
It was nice going back to Bear Meadows again. Some characters still there and continuing with their lives. This book is about two new characters, one returning home, one stopping there as a step in her career.
A sweet romance with two interesting, complicated characters. McClure's really good at letting her characters develop and explore their chemistry, which isn't often something I see in the Heartwarming line, and she did this without sacrificing or undermining the emotional components of the story. I enjoyed seeing Wendy and Josh support each other and sometimes struggle with each other, and their relationships with their family members were interesting as well. Sometimes the dramatic parts of the book (Josh's secret incident) were a bit too heavyhandedly and portentously deployed, and I could do without the whole Journalist Sees Nothing Wrong With Exploiting Secrets of Neighbors angle, but the book didn't lose its realistic and emotional core, and I still quite enjoyed the characters and their community.And also TWICE they're in a rescue-and-then-snowbound situation. One of my favorite tropes, ngl.Also, something in the ending that I don't see often in the sweet, small town contemporary subgenre. (view spoiler)[The book may be called An Allegheny Homecoming and the series may be Home to Bear Meadows, but in the end, the characters end up happy in Miami with plans to move to Atlanta, which makes sense for their professional goals and their personalities. But they still affirm their connection to their small town and the community there, which is also nice. I appreciated this willingness to veer from the subgenre's biases and expectations.
