The Muir House by Mary DeMuth

The Muir HouseThe Muir House by Mary E. DeMuth

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

‘You’ll find home one day. Sure as sweet tea on a hot afternoon.’ Willa Muir hears these words over and over in her dreams and can't help but suspect that they're glimpses of 1 year in her childhood that she can't remember. She leaves Washington and her boyfriend hehind after denying his wedding proposal to head back home to Texas in search of answers. Awating her is her childhood home, the Muir House Bed and Breakfast, which was a former funeral home. When she arrives, it seems the whole town is keeping secrets as she realizes she has some doors to close and hearts to forgive before moving on with her life and finding her true home.

This is the first book that I've read by Mary DeMuth and thought it was very enjoyable and clean. It's a very character driven novel with a mix of true to life family relationships, romance, mystery and drama. I found the beginning to be a bit slow moving, but it picked up about half way through with some redeeming unexpected plot twists and life lessons. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys family drama and relationships.
