Where She Belongs by Johnnie Alexander
From the publisher:
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.
This book is engaging from the beginning until the end. I was surprised at the different layers in the story. If you read this, keep in mind that this is book one in a series and so not all the lose ends will be tied up with this book. But that only means that you get to look forward to another book to enjoy!
That being said, there are a lot of characters so at first I found it hard to keep track of how each of them played into the story, especially with the grandparents and their names and all those happenings AJ and Shelby were enjoyable characters to read and Misty Willow house made me want to visit it and maybe live there.
This story is more than just romance, there is suspense and foreshadowing as well. It will be interesting to see what the author does in the future with this series.
I received this book free from Revell Reads in exchange for my honest review.
