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?

Mysterious Doctor & Small Town Single Mom Find Love
I absolutely loved A Place Like You by Claudia Burgoa; a love at first sight love story. It is the first book in her new Heartwood Lake Secret Billionaires series. I am looking forward to reading the other books in the series. Claudia Burgoa continues to show that she is an amazing storyteller, and one of my favorite authors to read. It was impossible to put A Place Like You down and I loved every moment on every page. Who does not love hot sexy men, strong females, loving families, and friends, who always support one another? I love how Claudia Burgoa always manages to create the "perfect" heroine, who is a strong, sassy woman on her own, to balance out the sexy, swoon worthy man. My favorite part is how Claudia Burgoa incorporated the title of the book into their love story with a simple statement from Drake. I really enjoy how the book is told in the first person from the perspective of the main characters. I love getting the insight and feelings from the different characters. A Place Like You is filled with heartwarming moments. A Place Like You is filled with all those things that I have come to love and expect in a Claudia Burgoa love story, and I was not disappointed, especially with the poignant moments that filled this page turner. A Place Like You is the story of Drake (Thorndale) Kershaw, a plastic and reconstructive surgeon and Wren Lynch, small town family doctor, and single mother to five-year-old Milo. Drake and his siblings recently discovered that their father had married into the DiGiacomo family, the Italian mafia and was found dead in his office. After someone broke into his brother, Callahan’s home and attempted to kill him and his best friend, Lake, then setting fire to the family’s vacation home in Vermont. The entire Thorndale family ends up in Heartwood Lake, Colorado as part of Endor Concealment’s private WITSEC program, using Kershaw as their last name. The family will need to stay there until they determine who is behind the recent events. Finn believes that it could be years. I love that Finnegan Gil and Derek Farrow run the program. Wren and Drake met at the local coffee shop. Later, Finn takes Drake to Wren’s home hoping that she will allow Drake to help out in her practice. Wren wants answers that neither Finn nor Drake is willing to answer. Wren reaches out to Drake for assistance when the victims of an accident on the highway are taken to her clinic since it has the closest functioning triage. Things slowly change between them as they spend time together and he delivers meals to Wren and Milo. I love Milo’s relationship with Drake, and how Milo asks Drake if he wants to be his dad when he catches Wren and Drake kissing. I love the conversations between Wren and Drake, and how they each share secrets with one another that they have not shared before. I love the heart-to-heart conversation between them when Drake reveals to Wren his real last name. I love Wren's friendships with Jezebel, Regina, and Sutton and how they always have her back. I love all the changes that Drake is willing to make in his life to stay in Heartwood Lake and have a life with Wren. Another favorite part of the love story is Drake's proposal and Milo's reaction to it. I loved all the characters in A Place Like You, and I am looking forward to reading the other books in the series. Who does not love family and friends that always have each other’s backs? I enjoyed all the interactions between the Kershaw siblings, it feels like real family love and makes me laugh at their teasing. I thoroughly enjoyed A Place Like You, who does not love a love at first sight love story. Highly recommend this incredible love story and am so looking forward to reading the other books in the series. I received an advanced copy from the author.
A new series
While Ms. Burgoa’s books often lean towards angst driven storylines, Drake and Wren were more calm than tortured, more sweet than spicy. I’m thinking that among his 8 siblings (looks to be a long and involved series), we’ll find some drama!
Wren’s son Milo and her family of girlfriends honestly were the brightest parts of this book for me. I love a good slow burn, but once things got physical, the story raced on like a runaway train.
I think Drake and Wren were the appetizer for this witness protected, squabbling family. I’m interested to see whose story is told next.
