Overview

She never wants to go home again.

For Jess Morgan, Destiny Falls holds too many painful memories. Nine years ago, a logging accident near the remote timber town killed her dad and her high school sweetheart. To make matters worse, her mother quickly sought comfort with another man. That choice tore Jess apart and drove her to seek a life far away. But now fate steps in, and family obligations force her return home. Before long, she's convinced that persuading her mom to live with her in Toronto will repair their shattered bond. However, she doesn't count on a long-ago friend re-entering her life and challenging her convictions.

Rugged forester Adam Wright believes in family, roots, and not running from heartache. Now, all he wants is to help Jess break down the walls of the lonely sanctuary she's built for herself and heal her past hurts. It's not until she rejects his plans for their future that he realizes his persistence has pushed her away—not at all what he intended.

Has he lost his chance? Or can he convince Jess that where she truly belongs is with him...forever?

Meet the Author

As a child, Cindy dreamed of becoming a writer. Well, okay, thanks to her grade three teacher reading a chapter of The Little House on the Prairie books to Cindy's class everyday, Cindy actually dreamed of becoming Laura Ingalls Wilder. It made so much sense. After all, Cindy's blond older sister always got to wear blue while Cindy with the "dark as cinders" hair was relegated to dull old pink—just like Laura. Laura was part of a pioneer family, and until Cindy went to school she lived in a tiny farming community where her father and grandparents were born. What further confirmation for her future does an eight-year-old with an avid imagination require?

When Cindy realized becoming Laura meant learning to travel back in time and using outhouses where she believed evil trolls were hiding to gobble her up, she decided to remain in the present and become a writer instead. Her first poem began, "My father is a logger, He stirs his coffee with his thumb, He has a dog named Blackie, And in his truck they both look dumb." Thus another illustrious literary career was born.

A Romance Writers of America Golden Heart® finalist and author of rollicking romantic comedies and emotional contemporary romances, Cindy's mission in life is to see her surname spelled properly—with an E. So take heed. That's P-r-o-c-t-E-r. Not, never, under any circumstances should you spell it with two O's.

Cindy lives in Canada with her family, a cat obsessed with dripping tap water, and Allie McBeagle.

    Heartwarming Romance plus more!

    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.

    Alright book

    This book was good and sweet, but so slow moving. I stopped reading it a few times and came back to it to finish it. It was a light read, good story, nice ending.
