After nearly a decade as a sous-chef in a trendy eatery, Jenna is desperate for a change. She’s supported her ex-husband’s dreams for so long that she can’t even remember her own…until she sees a for-lease sign near her parents’ home and envisions her very own cooking store.

Her crash course in business is aided by a streetwise store manager and Jenna’s adoptive mother. But just as she’s gaining a foothold in her new life, in walk her birth parents—aging hippies on a quest to reconnect with their firstborn. Now Jenna must figure out how to reconcile the free-spirited Serenity and Tom with her traditional parents, deal with her feelings for a new love interest, and decide what to do about her ex’s latest outrageous request.

In the end, Jenna will find that there is no perfect family—only the people we love.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 E | 2/11/2014

    " For me, foodie elements mitigate the romantic cliche of chick lit. Gobbled this right up, so to speak. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maureen Hubley | 2/7/2014

    " One of the best books I have read in a while. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mischa Bates | 2/7/2014

    " Kind of predictable, but an easy, clean, fun read. It dealt with many different relationships and I enjoyed the different characters. Nothing really bad to say about this book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danielle Meekings | 2/3/2014

    " Divorced girl moves back home to open a cooking shop and put her life back together. Just a nice story of starting over. You will like the characters and family in this story. Just a good quick summer read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 1/18/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book, it was very hard to put down. Great characters and a really good storyline. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 karen otto | 1/6/2014

    " Susan Mallery's latest takes a turn from romance to more women's fiction. While there are romantic elements, Already Home is more of a character study. Jenna is trying to find her way after a marriage gone sour that has left her confidence trampled and her creativity shaky. Opening a business in her home town, she soon has to adjust her definition of family when her birth parents reappear without warning. The threads of family - those we choose and those that choose us - are beautifully woven in this engaging tale. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 1/5/2014

    " Listened to as an audio book. I enjoyed the characters and the plot. It was predictable, but I think the characters and story were developed well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dianne Austin | 1/2/2014

    " Liked this book. I expected light "chick lit" and was surprised by the books turn. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Louise | 1/1/2014

    " If you're looking for a sappy book, this is it. Very predictable. Characters are one dimensional. The reader was very irritating trying to change her voice for different characters. It gets a 4.0 on my 10 scale. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 12/26/2013

    " I enjoyed the book. It's less romance then it is Mothers and Daughters and looking at family in all it's different formats. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chiara | 12/22/2013

    " I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It wasn't a romance which is what I think I liked most. I really like watching Jenna come to terms with her life. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kaelie | 12/11/2013

    " 2.5 stars, I think. I was more interested in Jenna's new business than the birth parent plotline or new love interest thing, both of which seemed to drag until the end, when it was all wrapped up with stunning speed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charmaine Puzey | 11/22/2013

    " both her mom's made me laugh. "

    " Absolutely wonderful! Love this book like I love all of hers! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ingrid Norris | 9/22/2013

    " This is a book better read than listened to on audiobook. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 11/24/2012

    " Somewhat conventional romance that also explores relationships with adoptive and birth parents. Better than average, although a bit emotionally manipulative at the end. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jessica | 11/3/2012

    " Didn't make it through this one. Was drawn in by the cover and a back cover description involving food and a cooking store element, which turned out to be not as prevalent as I would have liked. This was not the type of novel I was hoping for. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Krista | 9/20/2012

    " Great book. Kinda starts out a little slow..but then started to really keep my interests. Ddn't want to put it down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Holly | 1/27/2012

    " Pretty good book and good story line. I felt some of the secondary characters were more interesting and better developed thean the main character but still an enjoyable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 12/7/2011

    " Good easy summer read. Predictable but still fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leslie | 4/30/2011

    " It's not often, that I get so involved in a story that I cry - but this one did it for me. There is nothing in life like family and this is exactly what this book is about - family you are born with, family you are adopted by and family you adopt for yourself. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deborah | 4/23/2011

    " I discovered Susan Mallery earlier this year and have been devouring her books ever since. But this one was really somethings special. Heartfelt and charming, Mallery's sense of place is so strong, you feel like you too are Already Home. This is a must read book. "
