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.




“Do you want to talk about it?” I hesitantly ask, running my own finger along the steering wheel.

“I’m not sure. It’s just all so crazy in my head. Nothing makes sense. Nothing is going as I’ve planned.”

“Sometimes the best things that happen are the ones you least expect,” I say, like some damn philosophy professor.

She turns to me with a serious face. “Adam, what if Shane doesn’t get clean? What if he can’t do it?” A tear clings to her lashes before falling from her eye and trailing down her cheek.

You know that moment when you watch an author go from great to fabulous to phenomenal. Well author Michelle Lynn just did it and she did it with Familiar Ground.  I have read all of Michelle’s books which I love dearly.  While doing this I have watched her grow and master her talent and let me tell you this lady has talent.  She has upped her game and stepped outside of her comfort zone with Familiar Ground.  The is so new and different from her I can’t help but get excited at how well she did with the subject matter.  She made it so real for me with the deep emotional drama and the in your face facts of life. It just blew me away.  I couldn’t get enough of these characters and took every step with them on their journey to happiness, love and finally a clean start.  

To simply say go read this book is not enough.  You HAVE to read this book!!!  This is not just another romance or dysfunctional family.  This is a beautiful story of heartache, love, loss, addiction and recovery.  You won't just be cheering for the aunt and uncle to make it, you will be hoping with all your heart for the love of a little girl and the recovery of her father.  

So much went into these characters and you will get so much out of them and this book.
To not read this book would be a book crime and your misfortune because this book could only enrich your kindle or bookshelf.  It has mine and I am so blessed that I got the chance to read and review it for author Michelle Lynn.


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.
