A Pursuit of Home by Kristi Ann Hunter

Jessamine Beauchene has spent most of her life in hiding and always on the move in an effort to leave her past far behind her. But when she learns the family she thought long dead just might be alive and in danger, she knows her secrets can only stay buried for so long.

Derek Thornbury loves the past, which has led him to become an expert in history and artifacts. He knows Jess has never liked him, but when she requests his help deciphering an old family diary, he can’t resist the urge to help solve the puzzle.

As Jess and Derek race to find the hidden artifact before her family’s enemies, they learn as much about each other as they do about the past.

But can their search to set history right lead to a future together?

my thoughts

Let’s just get right to it, A Pursuit of Home has wildly and beautifully exceeded my high expectations. I’ve been fascinated by Jess from the moment she stepped onto the page in the Hawthorne House series but I was unprepared for her depth and emotion. From her mind-blowing backstory to the long-awaited glimpse into her heart and mind, Jess completely captivated my reader heart. The tough, no-nonsense exterior readers are so familiar with paired with her keen intellect gives Jess a Regency Wonder Woman turned 007 vibe and I love it!

Derek is the perfect brainiac sidekick for our superheroine because he continually surprised me as well! Between their banter, his social awkwardness, her brutally blunt honesty, and the whirlwind plot involving twists, turns, beloved characters from previous Haven Manor installments, and friends from the Hawthorne House set… this story is totally ridiculously delicious. I literarily ate it up and they’re so good that I’d love to start at the beginning and read these two series all over again.

Kristi Ann Hunter is a top-notch storyteller who crafts genuine characters and stories with heart. I highly recommend her books and I’m delighted to have them on my all-time favorites shelf.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher and was under no obligation to post a review. The opinions expressed are my own.
