About the Book:

Whether in a quaint home bakery in Langhorne, Missouri, a cozy boho coffee shop in Maple Valley, Iowa, or a charming lakeside cottage in Sweethaven, Michigan, love grows best in small towns just like this! 

"Seriously? Three of my favorite authors in one collection? The perfect weekend read!" —Susan May Warren, USA Today best-selling, RITA® Award-winning author

My Thoughts:

What can be better than three of your favorite authors in one book?  NOTHING!  Well, one thing can beat that...and that's having it be a surprise!  I was thrilled when I caught a glimpse of the gorgeous cover in a Facebook post.  I was excited when I saw who the three authors were in this amazing combo package of reading.

But nothing was as thrilling as having my own copy, in my own hands, and beginning to read.  More authors need to join forces and create collections like this one.  "Right Where We Belong" is most definitely right where you, my reading friend, belong!

Deborah Raney takes her readers back to Langhorne to meet Lily O'Neal as she works hard at keeping Lilybeth's Confections open.  Meeting her new delivery guy has Lily sending in smaller orders just to get a glimpse of his handsome features and to hopefully find out his name.  

Gage doesn't mind his frequent stops at Lily's place of business.  He isn't, however, fond of her monster cat, Fudge.  Allergies, don't you know!  But he's growing very fond of her pastries and goodies, and he's growing even more fond of Lily as well.

Melissa Tagg takes us to Maple Valley and we finally get to read Megan's story!  She's got Coffee Coffee going great in the small community, and her daughter Delia is the light of her life.  But something is still missing.  

Enter Eric Hampton, a handsome gentleman desperate to honor his parents by keeping Hampton House up and running.  While helping men rehabilitate and find safety, can Eric learn to let go of the past in order to embrace his possible future?  (and yes, Walkers appear!)

Finally, rounding out the final novella of the trilogy, Courtney Walsh travels back to Sweethaven, a favorite locale for her readers, to introduce us to Eleanor Waverly as she learns more about her family history and struggles with the memories evoked by what she discovers.  But will it impact her brother Finn in the same way, driving them apart?

Jason Holloway calls the firehouse home.  And he has an extended history with the Waverly family--one that harkens back to the Hatfields and McCoys.  Eleanor digging around in the past can't be good for anyone in the present, least of all Jason.  But can excavating the past make the present worth experiencing...for both of them?

I adore all three of these extremely talented writers, and I am so excited to have a little something from them to read until their new novels finally release.  I cannot pick a favorite, but I can highly recommend this collection to all of my readers.  "Right Where We Belong" gets my 'oh, the feels' mark, and you've GOT to get a copy NOW.

I'm so excited I bought digital and print!  So, until next time...

Mark Your Place, Deena
