An emotional, compelling page-turner from your next romance obsession, Shann McPherson, about the power of friendship and finding love where you least expect it.
When Alice ‘Murph’ Murphy’s beloved mother died, she promised to keep the family bakery in Graceville, Georgia afloat—even if it meant letting her high-school sweetheart, Nash Harris, go. For years, Murph has been biding her time, waiting for Nash to come back for her.
So when he strolls into Piece O’ Cake, Murph’s heart skips a beat—until he hands her an invitation to his wedding… There are painful secrets in both their pasts that only the two of them share, and Murph can’t bear the thought of Nash belonging to someone else.
There’s only one thing Murph can think of to do: fake a relationship with local bar owner and old friend Harley Shaw to remind Nash of what he’s losing, and win him back for good.
Nash is Murph’s best friend, a vivid reminder of her childhood and all the things she’s lost—but the more time Murph and Harley spend together, the more the lines between real and pretend begin to blur. Can Murph choose between the one who got away and the one who never left—and heal her aching heart?
Review of Where We Belong
Review (5 Stars): I absolutely loved Where We Belong and I devoured it in less than a day. Alice Murphy has always thought that Nash was the love of her life and is absolutely devastated when he appears out of nowhere to tell her he is getting married to someone else. To make Nash jealous, Alice decides to pretend that her other best friend, Harley, is her new boyfriend. What started as a lie, turns into something more because the love of her life has always been right in front of her.
This book made me laugh and cry and I just couldn’t get enough of Alice and Harley’s journey to one another. Alice did quite a few things that would be considered mean to Nash’s fiancee but it brought her closer to realizing that things happen for a reason. She soon realizes that the person that has always been there for her was Harley and she couldn’t imagine her life without him. This was an amazing romance and I’m still smiling over Alice and Harley’s relationship. This is one of my favorite books this year.
