"Where She Belongs," by Johnnie Alexander

"Where She Belongs," by Johnnie Alexander

Shelby Kincaid is ready to move forward after the death of her husband left her devastated. With high hopes for the future, she longs to purchase her family's homestead, Misty Willow, so she can raise her young daughters in the only place she ever truly belonged. She plans to transform the abandoned house into the perfect home of her memories. But she has her work cut out for her.
AJ Sullivan never wanted Shelby's family homestead in the first place. His grandfather left it to him as punishment for not following his wishes, and he's let it fall into ruin. AJ's more than happy to unload it to this spitfire of a woman. But even after angry exchanges over the state of the house, he can't get her off his mind.

With writing that evokes a strong sense of place and family history, Johnnie Alexander deftly explores the ties that bind us to home--and the irresistible forces that draw us to each other.


I enjoyed this book.  It was a little different from your usual love stories.  There was enough twists and turns in it to keep you interested.  I don't remember reading anything by this author before and as this book is the first in the Misty Willow series, I am looking forward to reading more by her. 

I like how she explored the "what you remember when growing up, is not always what happened in real life," scenario, as I think most people can relate to that.  Where this book left off, makes you want to read more and you know there are plenty of stories to tell about the other characters.  There is an excerpt in the back of this book, about book two which is being published in the Fall of 2016.

Stars out of 5 : 4  An easy read with enough going on in the story to keep you interested.  Well worth purchasing or borrowing from your local library.
