Where She Belongs
by Johnnie Alexander
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 THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK
After the death of her husband, Shelby Kincaid decides to move back to where she was raised, and purchase her family’s home, Misty Willow. AJ Sullivan owns the home, given to him by his grandfather, though he is sure not interested in the place. Once the two meet, for some odd reason they couldn’t stay away from each other. But family history and dark secrets find their place between these two young people.
This turned out to be a sweet and heartwarming story. AJ wasn’t the villain I thought he would me, he was actually a character I liked very much. AJ’s cousins, Brett and Amy are a different story altogether. The were difficult to tolerate! Ms. Alexander does a fantastic job of weaving this story together, through the difficult past, to the difficult cousins, to this special couple, Shelby and AJ, turning their lives around to create a beautiful life between the two. This is a wonderful contemporary story that you don’t want to miss.
