Overview

In A PLACE TO BELONG, Darcy O’Malley and Hunter Sloan have more in common than they know when they meet at her daycare. Both have troubled kids, both grew up as outcasts in their hometown, and both find a deep and driving passion for the other that cannot be denied. But Darcy must deal with her need for respectability, given her wild past, and Hunter must overcome his resentment of a town that treated him badly. The roles of their three children are a boon to the storyline. Highly emotional and poignant, Shay continues her Serenity House trilogy with a winner!

Praise for the Serenity House trilogy:

"For readers like myself who have been a bit disappointed with the quality of the genre of late, Shay’s latest might as well have antidote stamped right next to the “Serenity House” logo. The second and third doses can’t come fast enough." The Romance Reader

“Fans will enjoy the return of the Serenity House residents, and can only hope for a second-generation series one day!” Word Weaving

    intriguing contemporary relationship drama

    In 1987 Hyde Point, New York, Mrs. Mason dumps her daughter Darcy at the Serenity Home for troubled girls as suggested by law enforcement officials. Darcy pleads for her mother to give her one last chance, but she walks away leaving her child there for seven months. Fifteen years later, Darcy is so well behaved she has no fun. She raises her two precocious preadolescents by herself and runs Tender Time Day Care. Hunter Sloan has just moved back to his hometown in order to have his grandparents help him with his frightened, ¿handful¿ five-year-old son Braden just dumped on him last month by his ex-wife. As Hunter tries to be a good father for the first time, he receives help from several townsfolk. He also falls in love with Darcy who reciprocates. Though they have that and spousal abandonment in common, Darcy and Hunter have demons from their respective first marriages and their time as ¿bad¿ children to overcome if they are to make it together. A PLACE TO BELONG is an intriguing contemporary relationship drama that also includes an engaging romantic subplot. The story line focuses on the two adults and three children, with only Meli not seeming to have any deep problems. Though solutions seem simplistic, sometimes reaching out is all that is needed as many caring people offer a hug to Braden and his dad and Hunter gets through to shy Claire by naming her his statistician for the soccer team. Readers will appreciate this upbeat tale in which love begins to heal the wounded. Harriet Klausner
