Publisher's Summary

When she moved to her family's ancestral ranch, single mom Sierra McKettrick was disconcerted by the Triple M's handsome caretaker, Travis Reid. But when her son claimed to see a mysterious boy in the house, and an heirloom teapot started popping up in unexpected places, Sierra wondered if the attraction between herself and Travis might be the least of her worries.

In 1919, widowed Hannah McKettrick lived at the ranch with her son and her brother-in-law, Doss. Her confused feelings for Doss and her son's health problems occupied all her thoughts...until the family teapot started disappearing.

Could Sierra and her ancestor, Hannah, be living parallel lives?

Great

This is a great book, its romantic but exciting as well. It's not just a "they fall in love and into bed instantly" type book. Really great story line, complicated, emotional etc. Awesome.

Then and Now, Together

A friend recommended this book as well as the other McKettrick novels. She said she very much enjoyed McKettrick's Way, so I ordered it and told her so. She then said I should read "Sierra's Homecoming" first, so I ordered it, as well. I quickly got into this story and found the characters entertaining, curious, and not lacking in wit and humor. I could see this book being made into a movie, or Hallmark featured movie. The narrator helped to pull the story into a delightful mind's eye view.

Entertaining story, interesting bridge for series

I enjoyed the narrator. She did a very good job with the various voices including male, female, old and young. The story itself was enjoyable, particularly the parallel lives angle. My biggest complaint would be that I wish it had been longer to allow for more character development. It started off pretty strong, and there was a lot of potential with Sierra's past and her trying to reconcile with her mother as well as Travis's issues but it all hit the fast forward button towards the end and wrapped up in a pretty little bow. That isn't the worst just unsatisfying to some degree. But I still enjoyed the story that was there and am now going to jump into the series. I want to know more of the McKettrick's of the past as well as the contemporary ones.

Love the whole series of the Mc Kettricks.

The narrator was amazing how she told the story she made it come alive.

formulaic, uninspired romance

This is your basic romance novel, something someone would have written in "romance writing 101". the plot line is completely predictable, the character are not fleshed out enough to be very interesting, the "hook" of things being haunted is so lame it made me cringe while listening. maybe it is because i do not have children myself, but the freakishly overprotective, worrying mother character... just makes me crazy.

the saving grace is the narrator. she does an excellent job, esp with the kids... i finished it because it wasn't horrible, but I am very glad I only paid $5 for it. I actually thought this author was someone else, so purchased it by mistake.

Graphic

I stopped listening when the love story became graphic sex. I also found it disruptive (maybe more by listening than if I were reading it myself) that there were two stories, one from 1919 and one from present day. The narrative switched back and forth constantly.

Family and some Paranormal

What did you love best about Sierra's Homecoming?

I love that Sierra share here space with another time and some of her ancestors.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Sierra's Homecoming?

The most memorable is the moving tea kettle.

What does Nellie Chalfant bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narrator gives me a homey feeling, and creates a down to earth feeling from the characters.

Any additional comments?

I wish that the first three books of the Mckettricks was made into an audiobook.
