Published (Kindle edition) – 1st April 2016.

Publisher – Blackbird Digital Books


When the publisher contacted me via Twitter regarding an ARC of this novella, I was more than intrigued to give it a go. I don’t often read Novellas, but I certainly will in future.

Homecoming is a beautifully written love story with a difference. One I’m sure would have held my interest just as easily had it been written as full length novel.

Rosie loves Tom, she always has and always will. All she’s ever wanted is to know he loves her too. I can’t say too much without spoiling it for those who haven’t read it yet, but this is such a touching story which I’m sure will be enjoyed by all who read it. A story which will certainly stay with me.

I will be adding Tanya Bullock’s other books to my TBR list.

Many thanks to Blackbird Digital Books for my ARC.
