Where She Belongs: A Book Review

About The Book:

Can love redeem a broken past?
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

My Review:

This is the first of author Johnnie Alexander's books I have had the pleasure of reading and I am so glad to have done so. From the first pages to the last, I absolutely loved getting to know the characters, both major and minor, and watching them develop as the book went on. There was so much emotion, and I felt drawn into each emotional scene as the book progressed. It is a story that was beautifully written, a prose that was almost poetic, and a stunning cover that was what originally drew me into the book itself. A lovely and charming read. I look forward to reading more from this great author!

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
