Where She Belongs (Misty Willow, Book 1) by Johnnie Alexander {Contemporary Romance Review}

Misty Willow, Book 1
Contemporary Romance


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

When you are a book nerd your biggest thrill is to find a new author that tells a great story. I think I've found that in Johnnie Alexander. She's not a new author but rather a new to me author and I look forward to reading more of her work.

Where She Belongs is considered a contemporary romance . . . and it is. But it also has a dash of mystery and intrigue thrown into the mix. What I liked about the book is that there were several layers of story going on. Shelby Kincaid is a recent widow and is interested in reclaiming her family home to give her girls the childhood she had. AJ Sullivan wants to bury the past and get on with the life he's chosen. The problem for AJ is that his family has other plans.

When you add to the mix a Hatfield vs. McCoy situation there are sure to be a few dust-ups. There is underhanded schemeing going on that threatens Shelby's new life. When the whole situation unravels and you get to see what is behind it all you'll be surprised.

It is such a good read and I can't wait to see where the story goes from here. If you like a tension filled romance with some mystery thrown in I think you'll like this one too.
