When Becca Jones is called back to her hometown of Snow Valley following the death of her estranged mother, she plans to settle affairs and retrieve a family heirloom in record time. She can only hope to encounter as few people as possible and protect the secret she took with her more than twenty-five years ago—her beautiful and successful daughter, Sugar Jones.
Born into one of the town’s founding families, Eric Larsson was never given a choice when it came to the life he would lead, including whom he would marry. And despite having loved Becca Jones since childhood, he had been coerced into a loveless marriage and was forced to let Becca go on the night of her beloved father’s funeral.
Word travels fast in the small town, and Becca is soon confronted by the man she’s loved since she was eight years old. Eric reveals the darkest truths of his former marriage, and just as the two begin to consider a new future, an angry Sugar Jones comes to town demanding answers.
Going Home is a story of worlds colliding, well-kept secrets, and the promise of lives forever changed.
From debut author Kelly J. Calton comes the first book in her charming Snow Globe Café series. For fans of Debbie Macomber, Carolyn Brown, and RaeAnne Thayne, readers will be happy to follow Becca Jones home to the magical, holiday obsessed town of Snow Valley.
Internet Star Sugar Jones appears to have it all – a successful business, a kind daughter, a loyal best friend, and her mom who loves her more than anything. Her world is flipped on its head when her mom reconnects with Sugar’s father, a man she’s never met.
Eric, her father, isn’t the horrible man she thought he was, and she must now adjust to a whole new town, family, and people. Trust is not her thing, especially since she lived through horrible bullying most of her childhood due to things out of her control.
There’s so much change in her life right now, and to top it all off she gets to go through this during the holiday season. She’s taking over her grandfather’s cafe, about to be on a national holiday baking television show, and is still dealing with leftover guilt over her husband’s death. The last thing Sugar needs is someone like Jackson Anderson coming into her life.
Jackson is perfectly fine with where he is in life. Building his business and having a good time is all he needs. He plans to start a family later in life, just like his father did. Jackson’s world is turned upside down when the talented and beautiful Sugar Jones comes to town, the long-lost daughter of one of his business partners.
The attraction is immediate, but Sugar isn’t the type of girl he usually dates. Sugar has a child, and she’s tied to the family business. No matter how hard he tries he can’t stay away, and when he hears about how some of her internet fans can get a little creepy, he knows he’ll do anything to protect Sugar and her daughter Violet, a little girl who immediately steals his heart.
Finding Home is the aftermath of Becca and Eric reuniting, and puts to test the notion that love really does conquer all, especially when paired with a pastry from the Snow Globe Cafe.
At twenty-six, Emery Cooper appears to have it all. Not only is she the co-CEO of Sugar Jones, LLC, but she also built her own business helping other professionals manage their online presence and marketing.
When her best friend and business partner Sugar Jones moves to a small mountain town to run the Snow Globe Cafe, everyone assumes Emery will follow.
Torn between being with her best friend or staying in sunny San Diego, Emery knows she needs to give Sugar time to acclimate to her new surroundings. Still, once someone makes an offer she can’t refuse on her condo in San Diego, she moves temporarily to the small town.
The last thing she needs is Sugar’s half brother Alec complicating things by giving her butterflies and making her think that maybe romance is something that could happen to her. She can hardly stay away when she agrees to help Sugar reunite him with his twin, who have been feuding for years.
Alec Larsson is as close as a crowned prince as a man can get without being in a royal family. The only son of Eric Larsson, he was expected to take over the family’s luxury hotel business. Forging his own path in the business he found his place, but he can’t help but think about his first love – photography.
He also doesn’t believe in getting all wrapped up in love, but when he meets Emery Cooper, little by little she’s changing his heart on that subject. Kind, generous, and beautiful, she’s the type of girl he’d go for in a heartbeat if he were looking, even if she won’t let the subject of his twin Madison – or his photography – drop.
Leaving home is about two people who, due to past experiences, are a little reluctant when it comes to love. Those of us in the know realize there’s nowhere better than the Snow Globe Café to eat a perfect pastry and experience a change of heart!
