Book Summary:

He’d always managed to best her…

Jodi Chapman will do whatever it takes to get top care for her autistic son. If that means going home and convincing local farmers to sell their land, so be it. Even if her biggest opponent, childhood rival Daniel Gleason, is equally determined to convince farmers to buy into his co-op plan. And he’s not playing fair.

Facing off against Daniel is the last thing Jodi wants. The attraction that’s always fueled their competitiveness is as strong as ever and just as distracting. But with both their futures on the line, and years of distrust between them, how can they ever be on the same side?


I feel like I’ve been missing out on something wonderful. I’m a huge clean romance lover and have only recently discovered Harelquin’s Heartwarming line of books. I’ve previously read many books from their Love Inspired line. The Heartwarming books have a similar focus on family and values but without the religious feel to them.

His Hometown Girl is the 3rd Harlequin Heartwarming title I have read this year and I was not disappointed. There is depth to the story-line and characters. You can’t help but root for and love them as the issue of parenting an autistic child and some of the challenges that it involves are brought to light. His Hometown girl was a heartfelt story that focused on the benefit of living in a close knit supportive community and the choices and struggles that parents go through when deciding what is best for their children.

For those who enjoy clean romance and crave a happily ever after this is a great choice.
