When We Found Home - Susan Mallery
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.

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. 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. 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 he learns that an open heart, like the family table, can always make room for more.

Let me just say that Susan Mallery's books never disappoint.  From the start I was drawn to Malcolm, Keira and Callie's stories.  Keira, at 12, is spunky and more worldly than I am. I hope there is a book for when she gets older so we can see her fall in love.  Callie, I love her and she's someone you could be friends with. She's honest, loving and a great big sister to Keira. Malcolm took some getting used to but his heart down deep loves his sisters and wants to do right by them. This amazing story contains different kinds of love stories. Romantic and familial and I want more! 
If you enjoy a fast paced unique story that keeps you enthralled in the lives and loves of Malcolm, Keira and Callie, I highly recommend When We Found Home!
