Finding Our Forever (Silver Springs #1) by Brenda Novak


New York Times bestselling author Brenda Novak welcomes readers to the town of Silver Springs, where surprises wait around every corner!

The search for her birth mother brought Cora Kelly to the New Horizons Boys' Ranch. Getting a job there was easy enough, but confiding in the ranch's owner that she's really her daughter? That task is daunting. Especially with Elijah Turner watching her every move.

Elijah can't deny his deep attraction to Cora. But there's something about the ranch's newest employee that has him questioning her motives. If she's there to hurt his family, there'll be hell to pay. Yet, if the feelings the lovely teacher awakes in his guarded heart are any indication, Cora's appearance might be just what they were all waiting for.

4 out of 5 stars

Finding Our Forever is a story about a young woman trying to discover her past. After spending a lot of time and effort to find her biological mother, Cora learns that her mother owns a school for troubled boys.

Hoping that she could form a relationship with her mother, Cora accepts a job as an art teacher at the school. She wants to know how and why this wonderful woman gave up her baby daughter.

During the time at Silver Springs, Cora also develops a romantic relationship with Eli. Eli is a manager at the ranch, and he is also one of the sons adopted by Cora's mother.

As Cora searches for the truth, she has an inner battle with herself. She doesn't know if she should reveal her true identity, and she also tries not to hurt her loving adoptive parents.

I loved the characters and the plot. It's a sweet romance without a lot of drama. I just wish the story touched a little bit more on Eli. I can't wait to read the next books in the series.
