YOU BELONG WITH ME by Tari Faris, Reviewed by Winnie Thomas

Set in the town of Heritage, Michigan, Tari Faris’s debut novel is a delightful portrayal of life in a small town which is struggling to survive. The characters are delightful, realistic, and colorful, and they wormed their way right into my heart. Luke and Hannah are the main characters, and although I sometimes wanted to slap some sense into them, they grew on me. Thomas and Janie’s story also took center stage at times and added some spice to the story. With a stellar cast of supporting characters, which is most of the people in the town, I quickly became invested in their lives.
Faris is a talented author with a charming writing style. Combining romance with humor and with touches of inspiration, faith, and hope, this story should appeal to readers who enjoy contemporary small-town romance. I’m looking forward to more stories about the people of Heritage.

BackCover Blurb:
Realtor Hannah Thornton has many talents. Unfortunately, selling houses in the town where her family name is practically poison isn't one of them. When a business tycoon determines to raze historic homes in the small town of Heritage, Michigan, and replace them with a strip mall, Hannah resolves to stop him. She sets about helping Heritage win a restoration grant that will put the town back on the map--and hopefully finally repay the financial debt Hannah's mother caused the town. But at first no one supports her efforts--not even her best friend, Luke.

Luke Johnson may have grown up in Heritage, but as a foster kid he never truly felt as if he belonged. Now he has a chance to score a job as assistant fire chief and earn his place in the town. But when the interview process and Hannah's restoration project start unearthing things from his past, Luke must decide if belonging is worth the pain of being honest about who he is--and who he was.
