Coming Home: Windsor Peak by Denise Latham is a military drama. After his wife passed away unexpectedly fourteen years prior, leaving him with a young son, Jake Burrows enlisted in the military. After being hurt, Jake decided to return to his hometown to heal from the harm done to his body and mind. Jake is trying to renew his relationship with his son Charlie, but so much had happened between them in the past that it will take some time to heal. Through the years, Jake and Shea Kerrigan corresponded, and when they finally met, flames ignited. As Jake recovers, the choice of whether to continue serving in the military or retire looms over him. Jake’s decision will have an impact on his relationship with Charlie and Shea.

Coming Home: Windsor Peak is about a man who is wounded in the war and comes home to heal mentally and physically. It is an emotionally moving story by Denise Latham that had me hooked from the start until the end. Once I started reading, I could not put it down. I had to know what would happen next, and the suspense kept me on the edge of my seat. The characters were authentic and so relatable. They could have been anyone I know. Jake had a decent support network and was willing to get the help he needed. I enjoyed the growing romance between Jake and Shea. This story is beautifully written and was much more than I expected. I had no idea how challenging it is to reintegrate into family life after serving in the military.

This book had me from the first few pages, which I love in a book. The character bond in this family makes it hard to put it down, wanting to know what happens next. Can’t wait for book two.
