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.

My thoughts banner
Right Where We Belong  is another book in Brenda Novak's Silver Springs series. However it is perfect as a stand alone.  Like the previous book I read in this series there is some romance, some crime, a little mystery - all in all, a good mix.

Savannah has had the misfortune to find herself married to someone who has been attacking women. He is in prison awaiting trial and she is suffering trial by public opinion so she decides to leave the small town and travel to California where there is a dilapidated home belonging to herself and her brother.  She has two delightful but bewildered children and as well she has a whole lot of gumption.

Gavin is one of the past pupils of New Horizons Boys Ranch, he now works there and is a musician as well. He takes an immediate liking and attraction to Savannah when she arrives, and really helps her out where he can.  

This does not please his prior girlfriend who is hoping to wheedle her way back into his life with a bit of blackmail and putting the screws into him where she knows it will count. Will she succeed?

When it looks like the police might not be able to close the case against Savannah's husband - soon to be divorced, Savannah after weighing up things decides to get a little more involved and takes some big risks. I found it a little scary as she did her own investigation!

A fun read, nice and relaxing on the whole, that mixture of romance and sizzle, a heroine making a stand for herself and a hero there to support her while she does it. 


  1. Sounds intriguing and a bit scary!

  2. I felt a bit anxious during her investigation as well

  3. I have been eyeing this book, and it sounds like one I would enjoy. Thanks for sharing.

  4. This does sound good! I've been a little gun shy of her since a book I read in her earlier series had a side character who was doing an at home artificial insemination with a turkey baster using her husband's brother's sample. I'm still a little scarred. While I have a feeling the investigation will make me a bit anxious as well this sounds really good! Thanks for giving me the push to try her again. I've always enjoyed her writing but her plots sometimes got a bit much for me.

  5. It has been awhile since I've read this author and just need to jump in.

  6. Okay; I added her series to my TBR and my library has a large print copy for the first book. It's always fun to try out new authors.

  7. Thanks for the great review. I love her writing, but her books are a little too hot for my taste.
