Where She Belongs by Johnnie Alexander

About the Book
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.

Picking up a book by a new-to-me author is always a treat, and I thoroughly enjoyed Johnnie Alexander’s Where She Belongs. With realistic characters, emotions, and romance, as well as a touch of mystery, intrigue, and history, Alexander tells a sweet, page-turning contemporary story. From start to finish, it’s a great read that I could not put down, and I definitely look forward to reading more from Johnnie Alexander in the future. Fans of contemporary fiction will not be disappointed with Where She Belongs, and I highly recommend it.

Thanks to Revell Reads, I received a copy of Where She Belongs and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
