“Where She Belongs” by Johnnie Alexander was not a book I counted on liking very much. First of all, I’m not partial to contemporary romances, and secondly, I wasn’t sure the premise of the story would be one I liked. I was wrong. This novel, although it took me a chapter or two to get into it, was very enjoyable. There was also a hint of historical mystery following the thread of the story which gave the novel the kick it needed. The obvious theme of Ms. Alexander’s novel is one of family history and the home place. Some count on that tie that binds them to their ancestors and some could care less about the family story.
Shelby Kincaid is trying to recapture the memories she had as a child for her girls. AJ Sullivan has no desire to remember his childhood. They were vastly different although lived in the same area. Finding the ties brings them together and makes each of their histories a part of who they are.
I received a complimentary copy from Revell and was under no obligation to review the book.
