Right Where We Belong by @Brenda_Novak #BookReview #Romance

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.



Brenda Novak

It was a shocking experience that jump-started Brenda Novak’s career as a bestselling author–she caught her day-care provider drugging her children with cough syrup to get them to sleep all day. That was when Brenda decided she needed to quit her job as a loan officer and help make a living from home.

“When I first got the idea to become a novelist, it took me five years to teach myself the craft and finish my first book,” Brenda says. But she sold that book, and the rest is history. Her novels have made the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists and won many awards, including five Rita nominations, the Book Buyer’s Best, the Book Seller’s Best and the National Reader’s Choice Award.

Brenda and her husband, Ted, live in Sacramento and are proud parents of five children–three girls and two boys. When she’s not spending time with her family or writing, Brenda is usually raising funds for diabetes research (her youngest son has this disease). So far, Brenda has raised $2.5 million.

My Review

I’d like to thank Harlequin and NetGalley for the opportunity to read the latest in Brenda Novak’s Silver Springs series, Right Where We Belong.

As the book opens we are immediately drawn into the life of a young mother, Savannah Gray, who has just learned that not only has her husband cheated on her, he’s a serial rapist.

She packs up her life and takes her two young children home to the farmhouse she’d grown up in, but even that is not the same. It’s been left empty for years and is in serious disrepair. Left with no more options, she decides to stay with the help of her neighbor, a handsome musician she likes but is too wary to trust.

Gavin Turner has had his own demons, so he understands the instinct to flee. When he meets Savannah and her children, he wants to help and soon finds himself falling for the beautiful young woman, but has an ex-girlfriend who says she’s pregnant and a new boyfriend who is furious. Heather is determined to get Gavin back and is willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that happen.

Can two people with so much baggage have a chance at a future together? You’ll have to read the book to find out!

I give Right Where We Belong 5 lovely kisses

    1. Thanks, Don. Brenda is one of my favorite authors. My admiration for her efforts to raise awareness for T1D has grown since my grandson developed Type 1 Diabetes. Her organization has raised over two million toward the cure!
