Right Where We Belong
by Brenda Novak
(Silver Springs #4)
I’m very sad to say this, but this is my last book by Brenda Novak.
Brenda Novak has been a regular on my book tbr shelf over the last few years. I fell in love with her small town series Whiskey Creek. She gave me one of my rare 5 star reads with When Snow Falls. I adored the bad boy persona of Dylan. He spoke to me in all kinds of ways – especially his sexy and confident demeanor made me swoon all over. This book will always be on my keeper shelf and I’ll remember Brenda Novak fondly whenever I read it.
Now, maybe my taste changed in recent years, I can’t really put a finger on what exactly stopped working for me. Because, Brenda Novak can write, there is really no doubt about that. She is a skilled writer, and her stories are never short of intriguing and heart-warming.
So, it must be me.
Somehow I stopped enjoying her books.
Right Where We Belong did not speak to me at all. I didn’t connect with the characters and even though the author kept the story well paced and at the end I was definitely sitting on the edge of my seat, it just wasn’t enough. At this point, I don’t care what happens next in this series.
So, it’s with a heavy heart that as I’m writing this review I’m saying goodbye to Brenda Novak. I hope whoever reads her books will continue enjoying them as much as I once did – but I’m off discovering new authors that hopefully will fill the gap she left behind.
New York Times bestselling author Brenda Novak returns to Silver Springs with a moving story about rebuilding your life when you’ve got nothing left to lose
Savanna Gray needs a do-over. Her “perfect” life unraveled when, to her absolute shock, her husband was arrested for attacking three women. With her divorce settled, she takes her two children home to Silver Springs to seek refuge between the walls of the farmhouse where she was born. It needs a little TLC, but she’s eager to take control of something.
Gavin Turner understands the struggle of starting over. Abandoned at a gas station when he was five, it wasn’t until he landed at New Horizons Boys Ranch as a teen that he finally found some peace. He steps up when Savanna needs help fixing things—even when those things go beyond the farmhouse.
Despite an escalating attraction to Gavin, Savanna resolves to keep her distance. She trusted her ex, who had a similarly tragic background, and is unwilling to repeat her past mistakes. But it’s hard to resist a man whose heart is as capable as his hands.
