Dear Reader,

When We Found Home is out today in hardcover, ebook, and audio! In my life, I've moved so often that I've discovered "home" is more than a structure. It's a feeling, the place where we're most comfortable, our most authentic selves. The sense of home comes with us no matter where we go, as long as the family is together.

Recently, I asked my readers to share what makes their house feel like a home, and the answers warmed my heart. Here are just a few to brighten your day, as well . . .

“Cooking for friends and family” – Wanda E, North Carolina

“Reliving happy memories; curling up with a good book, a mug of coffee, and my dog Tandy; and the love of family” – Lori J, Iowa

“It was built with love, sacrifice and a whole lot of work. Not to mention we raised all our children here and have built so many memories.” – Ruth B, Virginia

“Anywhere is home as long as my husband is there. But having my favorite books around me and some sentimental items (pictures & mementos) gives a house that homey feeling to me.” – Michele H, Maine

“Love, cat hair, music, hugs, fuzzy blankets, and books everywhere!” – Laura Mae W, Pennsylvania

“My kids’ messes” – Vanessa Q, Illinois

“Family. A family is what makes home! I am very blessed to have a loving husband and three amazing daughters (16,15 & 9). Our home isn't fancy but it is comfortable and we have "just enough" in life to make things complete. <3” – Jennifer F, Virginia

“My kids’ laughter and bickering. My dogs greeting me and fresher baked cookies and pies lol” – Jessica C, New Hampshire

“My house feels like a home because of all the people in it showing kindness and love towards each other.” – Dana W, Texas

“Family, friends, good food, and the quilts I make to wrap my loved ones in my love.” – Terri E, Arizona

Above all, home is love, and When We Found Home is about finding love. When We Found Home is what I like to call a romance-plus. There are two great romances (wait until you meet Santiago!) for you to sink into. Plus the story of three half-siblings who meet for the first time and transform from strangers into family.

“Heartwarming…this book is sweet and will appeal to readers who enjoy the intricacies of family drama.”— Publishers Weekly


Life is meant to be savored, but that’s not easy with no family, limited prospects and a past you’d rather not talk about. Still, Callie Smith doesn’t know how to feel when she discovers she has a brother and a sister—Malcolm, who grew up with affection, wealth and privilege, and Keira, a streetwise twelve-year-old. Callie doesn’t love being alone, but at least it’s safe. Despite her trepidation, she moves into the grand family home with her siblings and grandfather on the shores of Lake Washington, hoping just maybe this will be the start of a whole new life.

But starting over can be messy. Callie and Keira fit in with each other, but not with their posh new lifestyle, leaving Malcolm feeling like the odd man out in his own home. He was clever enough to turn a sleepy Seattle mail-order food catalog into an online gourmet powerhouse, yet he can’t figure out how to help his new sisters feel secure. Becoming a family will take patience, humor, a little bit of wine and a whole lot of love. But love isn’t Malcolm’s strong suit…until a beautiful barista teaches him that an open heart, like the family table, can always make room for more.

In this emotional, funny and heartfelt story, Susan Mallery masterfully explores the definition of a modern family—blended by surprise, not by choice—and how those complicated relationships can add unexpected richness to life.
