Home Is Where You Are
By: Melissa Grace
I received this book for free from author in exchange for an honest review.
This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
You cannot help but fall in love with Liv the leading lady of Home Is Where You Are, she is as sugary sweet as the delights she whips up in her Nashville based cupcake shop. A recent divorcee in her late 30's Liv has all but given up on love but even more so on the woman she once was thanks to her sleezy ex-husband. Until one faithful night she meets front man Jaxon Slade of Midnight in Dallas when her friend insists Liv come out for a girls night instead of staying home with her feisty cat Mama. The connection is undeniable ... I mean who didn't dream of being swept off their feet by a sexy soulful rockstar!
This is such a feel good book and after the year we've had (bye bye 2020!) we can all use a sweet love story. One of my favourite things about this book is the age of our lady in love. It is refreshing to dive into a book about a mature woman finding love. Melissa beautifully mixes in storylines of hardship and real life issues which tugs at your heart strings. Does the past ever truly stay in the past?
This is Melissa Grace's debut novel and it leaves me really excited for what is to come. I cannot wait to read the 2nd book in this series, I am not ready to let go of these characters yet.
From the Author:
Olivia Sinclair left her dreams of a music career behind, along with her hopes for love and a family. With her husband having left her for more fertile pastures, she’s content to focus her energy on her thriving bakery, a new home, and an ornery rescue cat named Mama. That is until Liv’s best friend drags her to a concert where she meets the handsome (and much younger) frontman of the popular band, Midnight in Dallas.
Jaxon Slade is looking for a little inspiration. Up against a deadline, his ability to write music has escaped him. But when he meets Liv backstage, all of that changes. Jax is instantly captivated by her witty sense of humor and effortlessly beautiful voice. As the two grow closer, he begins to see a future with Liv by his side. All he has to do is convince her that their connection is worth the risk.
But when Jax suggests taking their relationship to the stage as a duo, fame makes some of the most painful details of Liv’s past public, testing her belief in their relationship and herself. Liv must decide between being the woman the world and her ex told her she was, or choosing the woman she was always meant to be. Home Is Where You Are, the first in the Midnight in Dallas series, is a story of love, friendship, and the family we choose.
