Familiar Ground is about to family who have found themselves in the same situation. We have Adam who’s sister died of a drug overdose, met the sister’s boyfriend, Shane, the day he found out that she died because he had to be there to identify the body, then Shane throw one big surprise at him, he had a niece that he nor his family knew about. Then we Leah, she’s Shane’s little sister, college student trying to make her way, she never found out about her niece, which she shares with Adam, so now she has to take care of her while Shane tries to get his act together. Adam and Leah make arrangements to meet up so that she would be introduced to their niece Dani. In a chance meeting a few days before Adam realize who she was and saw that she was the girl who he just couldn’t keep thinking about.
Michelle wrote such a heartfelt story about love lost and love found again. Through the tragedy Adam and Leah was able to fall in love and make something of their relationship. I fell in love with Dani and every time she would talk to Shane it would pull at my heartstrings because he was really trying for her, because who would want to see that a child have lost one parent to something in order to lose the other to the same thing. I got to see Adam go through his whole bit of trying to forgive Shane for the death of his sister, because let’s face it; he was in the same predicament as her.
Michelle as gave us a little drama with this book as well. When someone from, not only Shane and Adam’s sister’s past, but also Adam’s past came back to haunt them what are the sacrifices that have to be given in order to let the person leave them alone. I love that Michelle writes her sex scenes with such finesse that will be hot enough to heat you up but not overly burn you. Overall this, along with Michelle other books, are one thought out written masterpiece. This book is a stand alone, no cliffhangers at all.
Michelle moved around the Midwest most of her life, transferring from school to school before settling down in the outskirts of Chicago ten years ago, where she now resides with her husband and two kids. She developed a love of reading at a young age, which helped lay the foundation for her passion to write. With the encouragement of her family, she finally sat down and wrote one of the many stories that have been floating around in her head. When she isn’t reading or writing, she can be found playing with her kids, talking to her mom on the phone, or hanging out with her family and friends. But after chasing around twin preschoolers all day, she always cherishes her relaxation time after putting the kids to bed.
