Where She Belongs Book Review

I picked this book because I liked the cover even though I had never read anything by the author before.  Where She Belongs: A Novel (Misty Willow) by Johnnie Alexander seemed like an interesting story about moving on with your life by going back to your childhood home.  I couldn't wait to see how she was going to accomplish all her goals and check out this new author (to me).

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.

I wasn't sure what to expect in this book because the summary doesn't give you a lot of information but I loved it.  I picked up the book in the morning and read it all day finishing it before bedtime and wishing that there was more.  The book really had you pulling for the characters and wanting things to work out even though there were a lot of twists and turns.  Shelby is working hard to fit into the small town that she remembers as a child with her grandparents.  She is making a home for her two children and trying to make the memories that she had as a child for them.  It is all helping her get over the death of her husband and move on with the new life she is trying to make.  She falls for AJ and Brett who she insists that she is not dating but rather making friendships and life gets a little turned around when she finds out the truth.  You have to pick up the book to find out what happens but I promise you won't be disappointed.  I hope that you check out this great book at your local library or bookstore.  I know that you will enjoy it as much as I did.  I can't wait to read the rest of the books in this series so I will be keeping my eyes out (the back of the book says Fall 2016).  Hope you enjoy!!
