Familiar Ground by Michelle Lynn (Review)


ad·dic·tion noun \ə-ˈdik-shən, a-\
: a strong and harmful need to regularly have something or do something
: an unusually great interest in something or a need to do or have something

Leah and Adam have never met.
However, they live parallel lives.
Lives plagued by addiction.

When a tragic, but common demon, surfaces between their siblings, Leah and Adam’s worlds collide, never to be the same again.

Adam loses his sister forever.
Leah’s brother returns.
Both gain a niece, neither knew existed.

Now they face an obstacle to raise a niece together while Leah’s brother struggles to free himself from the grip of drug addiction as Adam’s family grieves for the sister and daughter they lost.

A commonality is discovered.
Deep wounds begin to heal.
Lines blur as their lives entwine.



This is a story of how two people are brought together because of a little girl, their niece that neither knew existed. They are thrown a curve ball and both Adam and Leah's lives are about to change. When the two families are brought together to help raise a little girl, bonds are formed. Can Adam and Leah raise Dani? Will Adam and Leah find peace with each other knowing that they can relate to each other?  Will Adam and Leah trust each other, knowing what their siblings were?  Will their pasts keep them from possibly having a future together? Will this little girl bring their families together?

This is a great story that everyone must read. There is not a ton of smut in the book, and the story line DID NOT need it.  Michelle brought attention to a problem that has probably affected someone that we know or love at some point.  I loved seeing how some of the relationships formed, how some of them were mended, and and last but not least, how the love of a little girl changed not only her father, but her aunt and uncle as well.

Familiar Ground is a great read and I highly recommend it.

This review was prepared by Heather.  I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.
