Right Where I Belong by Krista McGee (Review)

How do you find your place in the world?

Tired of watching her father flit from one wife to another and having formed a true bond with her most recent stepmother, Natalia decides to move with her from Spain to Florida when the divorce papers are finalized.

There are a couple things Natalia knows for sure: 1) She's being groomed to take over her father's international business. Success is expected. 2) There is no such thing as true love. Just look at her father. 3) Her stepmother's faith is real. And Natalia wants more of it.

Being in a new place, though, has a way of challenging one's preconceived notions. Natalia is still searching but before it's over, she hopes to discover right where she belongs.


The book of Ruth is one of my favorite passages of Scripture, so I love how Right Where I Belong is loosely based on it. I really liked the twist to it, instead of it being her mother-in-law it is her step-mother.

This book was an extremely easy read! I was able to read it in one sitting and with it having over 300 pages that doesn't usually happen. The story was interesting from page one and I could not put it down - I just had to finish it!

Some of the church parts in the book, though I am sure they could be true to life, annoyed me. How certain people were always the ones in charge of checking people in and so they would actually miss a lot, if not all, of the message.

Natalia exuberance about having a class just for studying the Bible and things related to it was great. Sometimes I think we forget how fortunate we are to be able to study the Bible and take it for granted; she doesn't and I think that was a great characteristic.

While Right Where I Belong is not part of a series, it is the third book that has some of the characters. The two books that precede it are: #1 First Date (featuring Addy) & #2 Starring Me (featuring Kara). I haven't read these two yet, as I didn't know before starting Right Where I Belong that they were connected, but I still plan on reading them. Each book is easily read on its own, but since I read this book first I do know what the ending is going to be in each of those books.

Overall, a very enjoyable story and one I heartily recommend.

***I received a complimentary copy of this book to review. I was asked to give my honest opinion of the book - which I have done.***
