My Thoughts-
“Where She Belongs” book 1 in the Misty Willow series by Johnnie Alexander
Shelby Kindcaid recently lost her husband and is looking to purchase her grandparnets home that she grew up in and had so many memories in. She wants for her two girls to have some of the great times she did. One problem, AJ Sullivan owns it. He’s the grandson of the man who stole the home from her grandparents. She writes a heartfelt letter begging AJ to sell her the house. AJ has one problem his grandpa “Sully” left it to him in his will as a punishment and AJ isn’t allowed to sell it. He works with the bank to find a loophole to allow Shelby to have it. The story goes on the tell of two families that should hate each other, but can’t resist each other. Also, AJ’s cousins are trying to take this home away from both AJ and Shelby so they have have a huge financial gain.

I’m not going to lie. At first I thought I was going to hate this book. I felt it was bogged down with too many descriptive words and I was getting lost in what the story was about. However with all books I give them until the third chapter to pull me in. I can tell you after the first chapter I was HOOKED! I couldn’t put the book down and finished it in less than a week. I had to know what was going to happen. I had to know this property would end up in the right hands. And I really wanted to see walls broken down in Shelby and AJ’s heart. Both had such hard childhoods and have hurt in their heart that made them hate people that didn’t even hurt them. I can’t wait for book two to come out this coming Fall. I’ll be picking it up as soon as it’s out and I’ll probably have it finished with in a week.

This book has romance, family issues and building, and a bit of violence. Most importantly it shares the message on trusting God and forgiveness. During the winter you’ll want to curl up by the fire with a nice warm tea and read it. And during the summer you’ll love to read this outside with a glass of lemonade. It’s one of those books that is a feel good book you can relax to.
