Reviewer: Laura J. Davis
After reading Where She Belongs, the first in the Misty Willow series by Johnnie Alexander, I had to continue on to find out what would happen next. Who knew that playboy and all around rogue, Brett Somers, would become a nice guy?
I was really pleased with how the author took a despicable character and basically forced him to look at himself through the eyes of one he would have previously deemed not worthy of his time. Dani, the one that changes him, also has some growing to do. She originally began to spy on him, hoping to find something to use against him for blaming her mother for his parent's death. But the more Dani sees and understands Brett's pain, the more she falls for him. What is a girl to do? As Brett reaches out to A.J. (his cousin) for advice, he starts to trust in God. Dani however takes a little bit more time to trust God or anyone else, and finds herself on dangerous ground by not being up front and honest with Brett about who she really is.
Each character grows and changes throughout the story, but they do have a few secrets they aren't divulging, until of course it all blows up in their faces and they have to decide what to do about it.
I loved seeing Shelby and A.J. again and getting a glimpse into what is happening to them and I look forward to reading the rest in this series.
