Where She Belongs

Where She Belongs
Misty Willow Book 1
Johnnie Alexander
 Shelby and her grandparents lost their ancestors home when Shelby was young. She was forced to move across the world to live with her missionary parents. She has never forgiven the Sullivans for taking her family home. Now she's a widow with two small children and the opportunity to own the home comes up. Shelby can't pass up the opportunity, even if the deal isn't what she imagined. And even if the grandson of the evil Mr. Sullivan keeps popping up. Shelby has to find out that where she belongs doesn't have to be a place. As long as she has God, friends, and family, her heart can belong anywhere.

This was a complicated love story that was about so much more than the relationship of the two main characters. It was about love for family, for home, for community, and for God.  The story was well written with several complicated twists. There was lots of drama, but also sweet relationships. I enjoyed the two main characters and felt that they had depth. The "villian" was aptly portrayed and made the reader dislike them very much. The author also did a great job of describing the places so that I felt immersed in the story, yet the book wasn't over logged with details. Overall, it was a great introduction to a "new to me" author. And I look forward to reading her next book.

I received this book free of charge from Revell Reads in exchange for my honest review.
