Where The Heart Is (Ribbon Ridge)  Home is more than a place . . .
Breaking free from her structured life, Chloe English quits her high-powered job and moves across the country to work as an art teacher. The simple life is all she hoped it would be until her house burns down, leaving her homeless. When a handsome firefighter swoops in to save the day, she can’t believe her luck. He’s laid-back and unassuming, everything she’s looking for in a man—or so he seems. It turns out he’s as ambitious as her ex, comes with a family who could be more stifling than hers, and harbors dark secrets he may never be able to share.

Orphaned as a teenager, Derek Sumner has found a place in his best friend’s family. However, the love and support of his surrogate parents and siblings can’t erase the grief and loss he struggles every Christmas to banish. But this year he meets the fun and sexy Chloe, whose optimism and sense of joy are incredibly contagious. Can she help him face his bleak past so they can forge a happy future?

A story of two people trying to find themselves and they fall in love each other. Chloe moves across country away from family to be an art teacher when after a few weeks go by her place caches on fire. That night she meets Derek who is one of the firefighters and he likes that she does not get down right away but starts thinking about finding a place to stay. There is an attraction there for both of them and though once you get into the story each one has their own set of fears that they must overcome in order for the relationship to go any further. With the help of friends and the people around them they are able to work through their problems and come out the other side. There is also another family that is part of this story that also makes for an interesting tale and keeps the story alive with many different characters. A nice love story. I got this book from net galley.
