Praise for  Home Free:

​"I found Ms. McEwen graced us with more than a romance, "Home Free" is a story of second chances and belief in the human spirit.  When a story touches my heart as much as this one did, I never want it to end."  Cat's Reviews 


"McEwen is a great storyteller with strong characters, great chemistry, and strong lessons to be learned. This isn’t just a romance, this is the story of redemption, grace, and the power of forgiveness. "  Once Upon a Book


​"A delicate story about life, love, and change, a story that can affect a person if you let the message get close to your heart and choose to feel the good, the positive, and the joy in life."  Books and Spoons


"A very heartwarming, entertaining read from a new-to-me author. I look forward to reading more of her romances in the future."  Notes From a Romantic's Heart


​"They are both great characters and they come alive on the pages of the book.  I felt for both and was pulling for them throughout the story."  Mixed Book Bag


​"This contemporary western romance is a story of redemption and atonement in a small town setting. I love the way the author was able to shift perception of a despised and hated person into gradual acceptance and eventual forgiveness, and found this story heartwarming and inspiring."  The Reading Addict


"I would absolutely recommend this book – in fact maybe even encourage you to read this book!  This book is filled with love, hope, determination, strength, change, forgiveness, and second chances!"  Fabulous and Brunette

Harlequin Online Read - December 2016

His first taste of freedom was only the beginning… 
Arch Hoffman has paid for his crimes. All he wants is to come home to rural California and start over. He's not looking to be a hero when he rescues a wedding cake from hitting the dirt at the ranch next door. But culinary artist Mandy Allen's irresistible smile makes him glad to save the day—and thankful that they're neighbors. 

Mandy's just the distraction Arch needs. Her sweet voice quiets the memories that threaten his chance to be a better man, and he's determined to help her confront her fears. But the past is its own prison, and even love might not be enough to set them free.
