Blog Tour: Where the Heart Lies by



All widowed Alicia Galloway has left of her war-hero husband are the flag that draped his coffin and his final wishes: to move to his hometown, take over the family bookstore and enjoy a simple, quiet life with their two small children. When she arrives, her husband's best friend makes that new life anything but simple. How can she be so drawn to Liam Addison?
Liam only intended to help Alicia get settled. But one unexpected kiss awakens his long-held forbidden feelings. Soon, the town busybodies swoop in to warn Alicia away from him. Because no matter the man he's become, he'll never live down his reputation as town troublemaker and wolfish womanizer.
No one wants the war hero's sweet widow and the supposedly former bad boy together. But the more everyone tries to keep them apart, the closer he and Alicia get. And the more determined Liam is to prove he's a changed man. Will it be enough to convince Alicia to let a new love in her life?

My Rating:

My Review:
I really enjoyed Alicia's journey in moving on after such a huge loss in her life. She is pretty much lost after losing her husband and is now living in his childhood homes. Surrounded with his friends and family, she has to learn to navigate being a single mother. 

Just to add to her problems, she meets for the second time (but might as well be the first), her husbands childhood best friend. Everyone in town is warning her to stay away from Liam. The only problem is, her and her daughter seem to have a connection with him. Tired of letting the opinions of everyone else keep her away, Alicia begins to build a friendship with Liam.

This is a story of loss, redemption, second chances, and a little bit of skeletons in the closet to throw a wrench in it. Great story line and smooth transitions with multi-dimensional characters. I highly recommend it.
