No Place Like Home
Two hearts. One home?
Eleanor Laing has a very good reason to want to stay single: her last relationship put her in danger. And she’s worried that while the physical scars will heal, the emotional ones never can. So, travelling to Kansas for her best friend Sandy’s wedding, Eleanor’s in need of some time alone. And Sandy’s brother Ben’s rural and idyllic ranch seems like the perfect place for it.
Ben comes with his own baggage – a failed marriage in his past, and a big question mark over his future – and he knows the feelings he had for Eleanor belong firmly in the history books. But, sitting on his porch with her, he’s never felt more at home.
Both of them swore they were better off alone… yet is it possible that two broken hearts could come together to heal?

The books began with such a strong scene and it really make me shocked. What happened to main character, Ellie, broke my heart. It so hard for me to read about characters getting hurt by people they loved. I was glad that she had such a good friends like Zak and Sandy who didn’t leave her alone.
I really like that the story of characters evolve slowly through years. It made it easier to connect with characters and make it more real.
This was the first book of Maxine Morrey that I have read and I really enjoyed the book. Her writing style feels magical and I recommend this book for everyone who isn’t afraid to read about more serious topics.
Maxine has wanted to be a writer for as long as she can remember and wrote her first (very short) book for school when she was ten.
As time went by, she continued to write, but ‘normal’ work often got in the way. She has written articles on a variety of subjects, as well as a local history book on Brighton. However, novels are her first love.
In August 2015, she won Harper Collins/Carina UK’s ‘Write Christmas’ competition with her first romantic comedy, ‘Winter’s Fairytale’.
Maxine lives on the south coast of England, and when not wrangling with words loves to read, sew and listen to podcasts. Being a fan of tea and cake, she can (should!) also be found doing something vaguely physical at the gym.
