Book Tour, Review, & Giveaway: Hometown Girl After All by Kirsten Fullmer

Hometown Girl After All
Hometown Series Book 2
by Kirsten Fullmer
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Julia lost everything while she was ill. Self-conscious and alone, she’s moved to Smithville, determined to hide away in her rundown Victorian house. Little does she know, she can’t hide anything in a small town, including her interest in the deliveryman. 

Resolved to keep his life simple, Chad has his hands full running his delivery business and supporting his adopted family. So why can’t he get that withdrawn city girl, Julia, off his mind?

Will the eccentric but well-meaning Smithville folk push Julia and Chad to open up, or will the emotional toll drive them both back into seclusion?

Julia has moved to the small town of Smithville with her dog Ringo. She's looking for a place to hide after a serious illness that's left her debilitated but soon finds that small towns aren't good for being left alone. For starters, local deliveryman Chad has an eye on her as well as his employee Bobby and a mysterious black and white cat. But Chad has issues of his own that brought him back to town, and Julia's complications aren't what he wants - or does he?
This is a lovely story about recovering from illness after losing everything and finding a home. I especially liked the author's characterization of Julia who can be depressed and ornery but is still likable as she finds her true self while not losing the steel that imbued her former personality. Chad's a nice guy who takes care of others but has been a bit lost and finds his true home in Julia.
There are some funny incidents that made me laugh out loud but fit into the story well. I can relate to George's 'illness' as I had the same thing happen in my past. 
I recommend a visit to Smithville; you won't regret it.

With three young children and number four on the way, she returned to college in 1992. Her career as a draftsman included many settings ranging from a steel fabrication shops to prestigious engineering firms. Balancing family life with the workplace forced her to become the queen of multitasking. In 2001, bored with the cubical life, she moved on to teach drafting in technical college, then to opening her own consulting firm teaching 3D engineering software. Due to health problems, Kirsten retired in 2012 to travel with her husband for his job. She now works writing romance novels and enjoys spoiling her three grandchildren. Since 2017 Kirsten has lived and worked full time in a 40' travel trailer with her husband and her little dog Bingo.
