Claudia Burgoa
Release Date: September 18, 2023

Audio Release Date: April 5, 2024

From USA Today bestselling author Claudia Burgoa comes a heart-gripping, single mom, age gap, secret billionaire romance.

I don’t have time for flings.

Love is out of the question.

As a single mom and small-town doctor, my plate is more than full.

But when Drake Kershaw, an experienced physician with a mysterious past, comes into my life, I can't resist his charm. He’s unlike anyone I’ve ever met before.

Drake is smart, charming, and has a heart of gold.
But he’s also grumpy and hesitant to let anyone close.
Like the rest of his wealthy family, he’s full of secrets.
I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s dangerous.

I should stay away, but how can I when he works in my practice?

And despite his grumpiness, Drake is amazing with my son.
He’s patient and kind and has a way of making him laugh that always melts my heart.
Watching them together, I can imagine a future–a future that could never happen.

But can we find a way to overcome our emotional scars and build a future together?

A Place Like You is the first book in the Heartwood Lake Secret Billionaire Series—an emotional rollercoaster of a journey that combines the intense drama of Succession and the hilarity of Schitt's Creek. A must-read.

Welcome to Heartwood Lake

Heartwood Lake is a quaint small town where everyone knows everyone's business even if they don't know the whole story of the new people in town they know they will be there for a short time because that seems to be the way of things in this town. The townies are there and the newcomers come and leave pretty quickly they don't stick around, well until the  Kershaw family moves in.

The Kershaws are the newest members of the "witness protection program" and this story sets up that storyline rather nicely, we get a lot of detail about their father and what may have happened to end his life, as well as why they are all being hidden away. This family is not your typical family and when Drake shares his family dynamics you can't help but feel for him.

This is Dr. Wren Lynch's and Dr. Drake Kershaw's story. Drake is the eldest of the siblings and Wren is a single mom. They both are a little broken but may be the missing piece to move on from their pasts.

Claudia Burgoa has done a magnificent job setting up this story and the entire series. I  cannot wait to read about the rest of the Kershaw Family and Wren's friends.

I listened to the audiobook version of this story. While Grace Grant and Patrick Zeller did a good job with it I wish they spoke to one another or even to the author about the pronunciation of Gael, one of the Kershaw Brothers because they each pronounced it differently and it was a little annoying. 

I recommend this book to readers who enjoy Slow Burn Romances, Contemporary Romances, Small Town Romances, Single Mom Romances, Billionaire Romances, Age Gap Romances, or Grumpy/Sunshine Romances.

Happy Reading!!!
