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.
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. 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. 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 he learns that an open heart, like the family table, can always make room for more.
When We Found Home is the story of a wealthy businessman who discovers that he has two half-sisters that he didn’t know existed. At his grandfather’s insistence, he brings them to the family home to live. There are many obstacles to overcome as they all struggle to adjust to their new living circumstances. Callie has her own secrets that she tries to hide. Thirteen year old Keira is a streetwise child. Malcolm has suddenly become the substitute parent of Keira, but he is a bachelor who doesn’t have a clue about raising children, especially streetwise teenagers.
The difficult relationship issues involving Malcolm and his girlfriend, Delaney, and Callie and her boyfriend, Santiago, kept me turning the pages to see what would happen next.
When We Found Home was an exceptional read, which is what I have come to expect from Susan Mallery. I definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys a romance novel with very interesting family dynamics.
