Going Home Again
In high school, it was doubtful Michael Day knew Alyssa Jones existed.
Twenty years later, when the now-famous pop star returns home to coastal North Carolina, Alyssa gets a second chance to make a first impression on Michael.
On sabbatical from his failing marriage, Michael agrees to an interview with Alyssa, a journalist for the local tourist magazine.
When the chemistry between them ignites, Alyssa and Michael are hit with the harsh reality that he isn’t yet free to love her.
With Michael’s wife and son still very much in the picture, can Alyssa hold out until he ends his marriage for good? Or will she risk it all for a second chance with the one who got away?

Review of Going Home Again
What a sweet, lovely romance!
Who hasn’t had a sweet high school crush? I know I have. And this book allowed me to revisit this love. Le sigh.
Sometimes I can’t help but wonder the question What if?
Well, Alyssa (who had a crush) is thrown into a spiral of emotions when her heartthrob Michael returns to their hometown and then confronted with all the feels. Michael is going through a separation, which makes all of the feelings not always so easy to deal with.
I loved this book and I love how this story is told in alternating perspectives. Both characters were written realistically– which is so important. I hate when I read a book and the characters sound flat or fake. NOT THE CASE HERE. Both Alyssa and Michael are real people, with real emotions, and a beautiful story to tell.
I laughed, I cried, and I enjoyed the schmexy times.
Amazing job Abby! The only complaint I have is that I want more!! (*hint hint)
