A light contemporary romance, set in a small town called Destiny Falls (First in the series), in the Canadian area. The main character Jess returns to her home town reluctantly after being away for nine years, to support her mom upon her stepfather, Peter’s death.
Jess is a single, independent, non-committal international shoe buyer and merchandiser, with many unpleasant memories in this small town. Her teenage first love (Danny), the guy she planned on marrying and her dad (Frank), both died due to a logging accident years prior, and her mom, Nora was not there emotionally for her when two of the most important men in her life died. Jess never emotionally recovered and wanted to put the past behind her and escape her bad memories and moved away. Shortly thereafter, her mom turned to her former boyfriend, Peter whom she later married.
Peter and Jess never really got along and put a strain on her relationship with Jess and her mom. Nora was strong with her husband died; however, now she seems to be very emotional. Jess is open to her mother’s attempt at utilizing this time to bond with her daughter as she feels responsible.
The one thing Jess had not anticipated was running into Adam, her former crush, Adam who still resides in this small town and is determined to win her over.
Persistent Adam continues to push Jess into a relationship, and he finally wins her over; however, she expects it to be a short term fling and Adam wants more. She continues to guard her heart - Adam has some baggage of his own, and his sister Molly happens to be Jess’s best friend, so they are always finding themselves together. Molly manages The Clothes Horse, a small boutique in town and a dream of owning when Molly and Jess were teens with aspirations for the town.
Jess does not want to risk her heart again and with the long distance as she plans to return to her safe haven in Toronto (after all, she is a sophisticated city girl and what could she possibly do in this small town)? She continues to extend her trip and even changes her wardrobe for a more casual look, enjoying small town simple life with this seductive hunk of a guy, spending time with her mom, and hanging out with friends.
A heartwarming, light sexy romance in a quaint British Columbia setting with strong likeable characters – a novel of moving on from grief, tragedy and loss—taking chances, making new friends, compromises, second chances, coming home, and opening your heart to love, and endless possibilities.
Where She Belongs is an entertaining read with a touching dedication, I look forward to reading more from this author, and the next book in the series.
