Book Review: Where She Belongs by Johnnie Alexander

**Complimentary products received in exchange for our honest review.  All opinions are ours and ours alone**

As part of the Revell Reads crew, I received a copy of  Where She Belongs by Johnnie Alexander:


Synopsis:
Can love redeem a broken past?

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.

About the author:
Johnnie Alexander is the award-winning author of Where Treasure Hides. Johnnie is an accomplished essayist and poet whose work has appeared in the Guideposts anthology A Cup of Christmas Cheer. In addition to writing, she enjoys reading, spending time with her grandchildren, and taking road trips. She lives near Memphis, Tennessee.

My thoughts:
Where She Belongs is a beautiful book.  Johnnie Alexander's picturesque way of writing paints a gorgeous picture for the setting of this story and allows the plot to unfold around you as if you were actually right there with Shelby and her adorable daughters.  This book isn't all sunshine and roses though.  There are some twists and turns and ominous undertones that I wasn't expecting from reading the book's description, which made the book even more exciting to read.  I can't wait for the next book in this series to come out!  

Where She Belongs teaches the reader a lesson to remain faithful as to God's plan for us, not our plan for us:)  

If you are a fan of Christian romance/fiction you will probably enjoy Where She Belongs.
