From the Back Cover
Realtor Hannah Thornton has many talents.
Unfortunately, selling houses isn't one of them.
When a business tycoon determines to raze historic homes in the small town of Heritage, Michigan, and replace them with a strip mall, Hannah resolves to stop him. She sets about helping Heritage win a restoration grant that will put the town back on the map--and hopefully restore her disgraced family name. But she'll need help to do it.
As a foster kid, Luke Johnson never truly felt he belonged. Now he has a chance to earn his place in his hometown. But he doesn't anticipate how his relationship with Hannah will set into motion events that reveal the truth about who he is--and who he was.

In her debut novel, You Belong with Me, author Tari Faris creates a heartwarming contemporary romance featuring a close-knit group of friends and family members who reside in the beloved small town of Heritage, Michigan. Hannah Thornton and her best friend Luke Johnson call the town of Heritage home, although former foster kid Luke still struggles with a sense of belonging. Readers will be treated to two different love stories in this novel, similar to the style of Susan May Warren’s novels. After breaking Hannah’s heart years earlier, there might still be a future for Hannah and Luke if their secrets and differences don’t destroy their second chance at love. Last year, Hannah’s brother Thomas abruptly ended his relationship with the love of his life Janie, although unanswered questions and unresolved feelings linger.
Readers will fall in love with the town of Heritage and will look forward to the rest of the series. Tari Faris gives readers hope for the future and shares the message of God’s never-ending love for us. I love her writing style and the way she incorporates bits of humor throughout the romance storylines.
You Belong with Me is recommended for fans of contemporary romance and for readers who enjoy novels by authors such as Denise Hunter, Becky Wade, Courtney Walsh, Melissa Tagg, and Susan May Warren.
I received a complimentary copy of the book from Revell and was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are mine. I enjoyed the book so much that I also purchased my own paperback copy.
Childhood sweethearts (for just one kiss) Luke Johnson and Hannah Thornton have managed to bury their baggage and zone in on friendship, that is until Hannah's plans for restoring Heritage's idyllic down town go up in smoke, setting the stage for some rather dramatic relational fireworks . . .since Hannah is a fixer, and Luke doesn't want to be fixed.
Meanwhile Hannah's brother Thomas has entangled himself in a relational conundrum of his own making; a hasty engagement to one woman has a way of dampening his reunion with another; when Thomas' "first love" returns home from a French culinary school she finds her dreams for the future broken into a gazillion pieces. Never mind that Thomas and Janie are hired to work together in the same restaurant, leaving plenty of room for sparks to fly behind the grill.
When life "zigs" rather than "zags", can these four lift their eyes to the One who graciously offers them "grace points"; over and over again?
Lovely inspirational truth invades nearly every page of this endearing story; while the story flow and conversational technique are indicative of a budding author. Yet, there is so much potential, and readers will have no trouble assuming that the best is yet to come.
In this story, we learn about Luke and Hannah. I enjoyed getting to know them and seeing them struggle with many of the same issues I have. The issues of wanting to belong and be excepted and valued for who they are.
Tari Faris wove sweet life lessons throughout this story. One of the wonderful things I took away from this story is the lesson that God will never leave me broken. He loves me so much that He’ll take all my broken parts and fuse them together to make something beautiful. Another thing the author wove into this book is that we don’t need to be the ones in control. God’s got it all in His hands and timing. In this story, you’ll experience moments of frustration, laughter, longing, love, and hope. WOW! Great things to ponder!
I’ve truly enjoyed Tari Faris’s style of writing. Her book flows smoothly and is very entertaining. I loved all the characters in this story and can see great books to come from more of the community members. It was delightful, funny, yet also thought-provoking.
Tari Faris is an author I am going to enjoy getting to know and reading her books.
I highly recommend you pick this book up. It might touch your heart just like it did mine.
