Review: A Homecoming Mantra (The Sood Family, #4) by Sapna Srinivasan


He’s a great single dad, but his family decides he needs a new wife…immediately.

No one in the Sood family has divorced—ever. But when successful mystery writer Shaan Sood’s wife cheats, he files. After his ex cuts ties with both him and their daughter, he leaves India to return to his Washington hometown and raise Misha closer to family. Shaan focuses on building a stable and loving home for Misha, but his peace is shattered by his loving family’s insistence that Misha needs a mother. Shaan is done with love, but he’d be lying if he didn’t admit he can’t stop thinking about his beautiful new neighbor.

Riding instructor Claire Wellington is everything Shaan should avoid. She’s kind, intelligent, and interested in helping Misha rebuild her confidence through riding lessons. Misha falls in love with the captivating and adventurous Claire, and Shaan’s heart isn’t far behind.

But Claire has secrets, and Shaan is a man who’s built a career solving mysteries. Can he risk his and his daughter’s hearts once again?


My Review:

A sweet heartfelt story.

I have loved the previous books in the Sood Family series and couldn’t wait to get my hands on this one.  As with the other books, there is lots of fun and laughs with the family, but also some more serious issues.  This time we meet best-selling author, Shaan and his daughter, Misha, who have left India and returned to Washington after Shaan and his wife divorce.  Washington is where Shaan was raised and his family live there.  Shaan wanted Misha to know the love of family and learn about their culture from them.  

When Misha’s teacher suggests Shaan find some sort of outlet, for Misha, to help her underlaying issues about her mother, Shaan finds Claire, one of his neighbors who has horses.  Claire agrees to teach Misha how to ride, even though she no longer teaches riding because of something that she recently went through.   Along with teaching Misha to ride, Shaan and Claire form a bond that leads to love.  But when Shaan keeps a secret from Claire, it could ruin their relationship, which would not only break each of their hearts, but it could effect Misha as well.  Shaan will do anything to convince Claire to take him back. Will Shaan, Claire and Misha become the happy family they all want?
