His anger drove her away. Her devotion lured her back. But when these two become unwitting neighbors, will they be able to heal old wounds and make peace with the past? Find out in Diana Palmer’s emotionally fraught new novel Wyoming Homecoming, the 11th installment in her long-running Wyoming Men series.


Abby Brennan swore she would never return to Catelow, Wyoming after Sheriff Cody Banks publicly blamed her for the death of his wife. But sometimes, we are forced to make difficult choices on behalf of those we love most. This is the situation Abby faces when her great uncle Charlie dies, leaving her his ranch and its surrounding land.

While returning to her roots will help Abby and her niece Lucinda finally leave their struggles in Denver behind, now she must try to avoid the sheriff lest she dredge up old feelings of loss on his part. But try as she may, circumstances keep drawing them together.

Remarkably, both Abby and Cody feel their hearts gradually soften until friendship grows between them. As they learn to let go of what happened and look toward the future instead, will love bloom there too? You’ll have to read the book to discover what lies in store for these two.

Palmer’s authentic, flawed, richly drawn characters will connect with readers, but it is the raw emotion woven through the storyline like a gleaming thread of hope which truly propels Wyoming Homecoming. While reading this novel, I couldn’t help but connect with Abby’s resilience and determination to achieve something on her own.

As strong as she is, however, Abby must learn that accepting help doesn’t mean she is deficient in some way. It’s a lesson I’m still constantly learning. But watching her evolution as a character gives me the impetus to keep trying.

If you love your cowboys the way you like your coffee, strong with a hint of sweet, you’re going to love Wyoming Homecoming. This is the perfect book to curl up with on a cold winter day. You won’t be disappointed.
