      Unfinished Business is one of the stories in the series ‘Going Home’ by Roberts.

      In this story, our characters are Vanessa Sexton and Brady Tucker. The former a world renowned pianist and the latter a doctor in the town that they grew up in.

      When Vanessa returns to find the mother that she left behind 15 years ago, she meets Brady, who was her lover when she left at the young age of 16. However, the spark between them still exists and in fact, burns fast and bright.

      While Vanessa is trying to make things work between

      her mother and herself, she falls in love with Brady once again. Or perhaps, she has always been in love with him all along. Now however, Vanessa is on her guard against him. Brady is this very steady character who is always there for Vanessa. There is little fun between them in this book. We see Brady determined to get Vanessa back, and this time, back for good. Vanessa on the other hand, tries to hold him at arm’s length (for all the good it does her). But as usual, she is unable to resist ...

      • him for long and eventually, gives herself over to him.

        Like the series’ name (Going Home) suggests, this story revolves around family. Both Vanessa’s and Brady’s family as they are about to become closer than just lovers. The family bond here is not brought out as clearly as some of the other stories written by Roberts, but you get the gist of the book.

        This romance novel seems to lack the usual spark that Roberts injects into most of her romance stories. This is a really typical book with not much ups and downs. A rather

        unexciting romance story i would say.

        Compared to the other stories in the series, i would say that ‘Island of Flowers’ is definitely a much better story than this one. Not only is there more for us to ‘aww’ and ‘aah’ over, you can really immerse yourself in that story. This book however, did not manage to pull me into the story and i find myself unable to identify with the characters in the book.

        A minor disappointment, but I’m sure Roberts will continue to craft exciting romance novels that will make our hearts sing when we read them.
