Editorial Reviews

Review

"Procter-King's characters struggle to overcome old heartaches and forge a new future in this contemporary romance set in British Columbia." Publisher's Weekly
           

4 Stars! "Procter-King has written a 'home' for all of us. Destiny Falls is the place that holds your first love, your first triumph; it's where you lost a person you cared about. Jess is a character who women will identify with, having to forget a past that is beyond difficult to do." RT Book Reviews

"The latest from Procter-King, a Golden Heart finalist and author of Borrowing Alex, is a sentimental novel about love, grief, and coming home again. Jess is a sympathetic protagonist who learns the well-worn lesson that home is with the people you love." Booklist Online

From the Author

In memory of Andy, brother of my heart, taken too soon.

More About the Author

As a child, Cindy dreamed of becoming a writer. Well, okay, thanks to her grade three teacher reading a chapter of The Little House on the Prairie books to Cindy's class everyday, Cindy actually dreamed of becoming Laura Ingalls Wilder. It made so much sense. After all, Cindy's blond older sister always got to wear blue while Cindy with the "dark as cinders" hair was often relegated to wearing dull old pink--just like Laura. Laura was part of a pioneer family, and until Cindy went to school she lived in a miniscule farming community where her father and grandparents were born. What further confirmation for her future does an eight-year-old with an avid imagination require?

When Cindy realized becoming Laura meant learning to travel back in time and using--gasp!--outhouses where she believed evil trolls were hiding to gobble her up, she decided to remain in the present and become a writer instead. Her first poem began, "My father is a logger, He stirs his coffee with his thumb, He has a dog named Blackie, And in his truck they both look dumb." Thus another illustrious literary career was born.

Cindy earned a first class B.A. in English Lit. from the University of Victoria before unleashing herself on the unsuspecting workforce. However, she quickly realized her aversion to fluorescent lights and the numbers 9-2-5 wouldn't gain her kudos from her various bosses. Luckily, she married Steven King (note the lack of a "ph"), who whisked her to a tiny logging town where she couldn't find a job...unless you count her stint as secretary to the warden of a minimum security prison. There, Cindy began writing novels, and she hasn't looked back. Because, honestly, what other employer in their right mind would want her?

A Romance Writers of America Golden Heart® finalist and author of rollicking romantic comedies and emotional contemporary romance, Cindy's mission in life is to see her surname spelled properly--with an E. So take heed. That's P-r-o-c-t-E-r. Not, no, never, under any flippin' circumstances should you spell it with two O's. Cindy lives in Canada with her husband, their two amazing sons, a tortoiseshell cat obsessed with dripping tap water, and Allie McBeagle.

Format: Hardcover
Nearly a decade has passed sine the logging tragedy killed the father and high school sweetheart of Jess Morgan. Grieving her dual loss, Jess cannot turn to her mom who found solace with another man. Jess left her hometown of Destiny Falls, British Columbia vowing to never return to the sight of her greatest trauma and betrayal.

However, when her stepfather dies, Jess the shoe buyer returns to Destiny Falls to briefly be there in order to persuade her mom to live with her in Toronto as she hopes to mend their estrangement. Jess is stunned by how much her mother needs her and how much forester Adam Wright wants her. Adam pushes for a permanent relationship amidst their families in Destiny Falls but fearful of relationships as loved ones die Jess prepares to flee back to Ontario.

This is an entertaining family drama starring a young woman unable to move past the losses of her dad and her boyfriend. Jess makes the tale as she brings realism with her trauma. Her mom's inability to cope then and now enhance how alone Jess felt back then. Although Adam is a bull in a china shop when his beloved needs gentle support, fans will enjoy visiting Destiny Falls in picaresque British Columbia.

Jess Morgan reluctantly goes back to her hometown, but she dreads it. Destiny Falls holds too many bad memories. Nine years ago, a logging accident killed her father and the boy she loved. Her mother withdrew and didn't seem to need her. Jess left for college as soon as she could, and her mother married another man. After college Jess had taken a high-paying job in Toronto and crossed Canada to home on the West Coast as little as possible. Now, her stepfather was dead, and, by all reports, her mother needs her. She gets to the airport expecting Molly, her best friend, to pick her up, but, instead, Adam Wright, Molly's cousin does. Even just sitting beside him in the SUV, Jess can feel a magnetism, and it grows stronger each time she sees him. However, she's afraid of commitments where she might lose someone she loves again. Adam's pushy, persistent nature just makes her more skittish.

This was a very well-written book. The only grammatical error I found was "to you and I." The book started a little slowly for me, but the pace picked up before long. I felt there were way too many curse words. I found over sixty-some before I gave up tallying them. This author is too good with words. She doesn't need this redundancy. There were also several steamy, descriptive sex scenes. These were rather well-done considering the content and more realistic than many such scenes. I would have preferred the story without them, but I know many readers would disagree.

Format: Hardcover
Stuck in a quagmire of heartbreaking experiences in her teens, Jess Morgan's ability to move on emotionally is stalled even though she functions at top speed in her upscale merchandizing career in Toronto. When she must return to Destiny Falls where she experienced these life-changing hurts, she is swamped with misgivings. Her veneer of big city sophistication gets chipped away little by little. Whether she feels like she has come "home" or not, the people of Destiny Falls believe she has and draw her into the web of small community living.

Adam Wright, whom Jess had a crush on when she was fourteen and he was seventeen, is Jess's best friend Molly's cousin and comes to pick Jess up at the airport while Molly stays with Jess's mother Nora, whose second husband has died.

Adam is comfortable in his own skin. He put his roots down deep in Destiny Falls and has that sense of belonging he needs. He is just as tenacious, steadfast, and persistent as his cousin Molly. He works to make Destiny Falls a better and more prosperous place to live He works hard in his business to obtain contracts that generate jobs and good wages for the local people. However, his attitude that others should like and be happy with what he is happy with has cost him dearly. Crysta and his unborn child are lost to him because of this attitude and now it colors his view of Jess whom he feels abandoned her mother and her hometown. He doesn't know the circumstances and is too quick to judge.

Nora, Jess's mother, is not blameless in Jess's feeling she doesn't really belong in Destiny Falls or anywhere else for that matter. Caught up in her own needs and loves over the years, Nora lost her connection with her only child.

Format: Hardcover
Jessie Morgan, a shoe buyer from Toronto, returns home to Destiny Falls to be with her estranged mother after her stepfather passes away. Jessie and her mother weren't close as Jessie grew up, and they seemed to grow further apart when her father and sweetheart were killed in an accident. She hadn't been home since she and her stepfather and fought four years previously. Jessie's mother is all she has right now and she wants to try to help her.

Adam Wright knew Jessie's stepfather and liked him a lot. He is there for the widow and helps Jessie out as well. Adam has his own skeletons, but he doesn't let them prevent him from finding happiness. However, one of his biggest flaws is pushing people too much and not letting them come to their own decisions in their own time. Adam opens some things up for Jessie, and she soon finds that her job doesn't complete her as much as she thought it did. Jessie had learned to run from her pain and try to bury it. Can Adam convince Jessie that they belong together, or will he push her too far?

Where She Belongs had realistic characters with all their flaws and baggage in tow, looking to find their place in this world and their own personal happiness within themselves. Jessie needed to realize that life doesn't have many guarantees and when she is knocked off course, she needs to get back up and try again. I liked that she stood up for herself with Adam when she needed to and that he actually stopped to look at things from her point of view. Where She Belongs had Jessie finding a sense of peace, belonging, and true happiness within herself, and not allowing an outer relationship to completely define her. I truly felt that she was living life after she came to the conclusions of putting some of the past to rest.
