After watching her father jump from one marriage to the next, Natalia has completely written off love. And when her father divorces his third wife—the only one who has been a mother to her—Natalia is ready to write him off too.
Needing a change of scenery, Natalia leaves her home in Spain and relocates with her stepmother to sun-soaked Florida. But she didn’t realize just how far a new school, a new culture, and a new lifestyle would push her out of her comfort zone.
One of her biggest surprises comes from Brian, a pastor’s son with an adorable smile, who loves God with a sincerity that astounds Natalia. She doesn’t want to fall for him, but she can’t seem to avoid him long enough to get him out of her mind.
Love is the last thing Natalia wants. Even so, God has her right where she belongs.
Because I enjoyed reading First Date by Krista McGee, I thought I should give this book a try too. I'm glad I did. Although Right Where I Belong has some of the same characters in it as First Date, it is a stand alone book that in no way depends on the other books. This is a Christian Fiction YA book.
I just love the cover of this book. It brings to mind many happy memories of one of my favorite places to stand.
Natalia is a character to be admired in this book. She is faithful and loyal. I love how hard she works at understanding and putting into practice what she learns. Something I also admire is how Natalia treats others, even the ones she doesn't especially like, in this book. Even though she speaks her mind, she does it in a kind way, carefully placing her words as not to hurt anyone. I wish we could all be more like that.
I enjoyed Natalia's journey of learning, service and self discovery.
This book will be released on December 11th. You can pre-order at Amazon.
