Where She Belongs

Shelby Kincaid is ready to move on from her grief. With high hopes for the future, she longs to purchase her family's ancestral homestead 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'll have her work cut out for her.

AJ Sullivan never wanted the homestead. Inherited as a punishment from his grandfather, it has sat empty for fifteen years and fallen into ruin. He's glad to finally unload it. But a clean break isn't possible when he can't get the young widow Shelby off his mind.

Welcome to Misty Willow, a place that will have as great a hold over the reader as it does over its inhabitants. With writing that evokes a strong sense of place and personal history, Johnnie Alexander deftly explores the ties that bind us to home--and the irresistible forces that draw us to each other.

My thoughts: I quite enjoyed this story!It is a beautiful tale of family secrets, love, and discovering where you belong. I found that I didn't always like the heroine, but the hero is one of my new favorites, since he is honorable and kind (definitely swoon worthy). Some of the secrets take a while to come to light, which is kind of fun. I am already looking forward to the next book in the series!
I received this book from Revell in exchange for my honest review.


  1. I'm a bit ashamed that I've not read this one yet. Hopefully I'll get to it next week and will have to promptly get a review posted. Some review commitments are a bit later than I intend despite best intentions. Glad you enjoyed this one, Amanda. :)

    1. I thought it was an excellent story, so I hope you will enjoy it! I like that it is told from several different view points, setting it up for the rest of the series.;)
      It is harder to review for Revell,I find, since they don't give me an actual deadline like Lit Fuse or some of the other places I review for. So, their reviews can get pushed back.
      I look forward to reading your thoughts!
