Blog Tour: When We Found Home by Susan Mallery

Author: Susan Mallery
Publisher: Harlequin
Date of publication: July 10, 2018

Life is meant to be savored, but that’s not easy with no family, limited prospects and a past you’d rather not talk about. Still, Callie Smith doesn’t know how to feel when she discovers she has a brother and a sister–Malcolm, who grew up with affection, wealth and privilege, and Keira, a streetwise twelve-year-old. Callie doesn’t love being alone, but at least it’s safe. Despite her trepidation, she moves into the grand family home with her siblings and grandfather on the shores of Lake Washington, hoping just maybe this will be the start of a whole new life.

But starting over can be messy. Callie and Keira fit in with each other, but not with their posh new lifestyle, leaving Malcolm feeling like the odd man out in his own home. He was clever enough to turn a sleepy Seattle mail-order food catalog into an online gourmet powerhouse, yet he can’t figure out how to help his new sisters feel secure. Becoming a family will take patience, humor, a little bit of wine and a whole lot of love. But love isn’t Malcolm’s strong suit…until a beautiful barista teaches him that an open heart, like the family table, can always make room for more.

In this emotional, funny and heartfelt story, Susan Mallery masterfully explores the definition of a modern family—blended by surprise, not by choice—and how those complicated relationships can add unexpected richness to life.

When We Found Home is the latest stand alone by one of my favotire authors.  I love her books because they always resonate with me.  This story is about three broken people who are thrown thrown together because of  DNA  and end up finding the family they need. This is a wonderful story about family that I highly recommend.

 My favorite part of the book was watching the siblings figure out how to be a family. It wasn't a smooth process and took a lot of work. I was really rooting for them the whole time.  My favotire character was Callie.  One mistake screwed up her life and she was continually living with the consequences.  It was heart breaking to see how she always expected the worst.  Malcolm grew the most by the end of the book in learning to trust again. There are two romances in the book and they are an added bonus to an already heartwarming story.  This is definitely one to check out this summer!
