Coming Home to You

Tule. (Orchard Hill, Bk. 3). Sept. 2022. 259p. ebk. ISBN 9781957748351. $5.99. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
Mabel Antonoff doesn’t hesitate when she hears a stranger going into labor in a hardware store. Her work as a midwife has prepared her for that—but not for running into Sam Strauss, the high school boyfriend who broke her heart and left town years before. When their romantic backstory and heartwarming reunion go viral, Mabel convinces Sam to join her for media interviews so that she can use their 15 minutes of fame to promote accessible midwifery. Mabel and Sam’s teenage breakup has roots in a multigenerational family drama. Some of the twists and turns are predictable, but they frame resonant, emotional dilemmas. This is the third book in Crowley’s “Orchard Hill” series (following Shine a Light and Two Nights to Forever), and cameos from previous leads round out the supportive but complicated community in the suburbs of St. Louis.
VERDICT Second chances, new beginnings, and meaningful forgiveness bring long-estranged exes back together in this compelling holiday romance, which is being published just in time for Rosh Hashanah.
