Today’s book review features
Where Dreams Reside by Chiavaroli.
A shameful past, an orchard camp, and a kindling romance…not exactly Little Men, but Bronson Martin never liked being compared to the March family anyhow.
Grossly outnumbered by the women in the Martin family clan, Bronson fights tooth and nail to be taken seriously among his mother and sisters who still, in many ways, think of him as a young boy. As the man of the house, all Bronson wants is to take care of his family and to work toward something of lasting value. But as his dream of an orchard camp and apple-picking venture take root, an unexpected woman shows up, threatening to distract him from all he’s worked toward.
Eight years ago, an irresponsible decision led to the death of Morgan Dalton’s best friend. Now, she’s returned home, hoping to make amends. When she obtains a job at the Orchard House Summer Camp, Morgan wonders if a new life is possible…until events at the camp cause her to relive her past in an all-too frightening way.
Can Morgan bury the demons of her past before Bronson’s Orchard House camp dreams disintegrate?
Book 5 in The Orchard House Bed and Breakfast Series is a contemporary twist on the well-loved classic, Little Women. Readers will fall in love with the Martin family—Maggie, Josie, Lizzie, Bronson, Amie, and their mother Hannah—each trying to find their own way in the world and each discovering that love, home, and hope are closer than they appear.

Where Dreams Reside is the fifth book in Heidi Chiavaroli’s contemporary romance series The Orchard House Bed and Breakfast.
Bronson is the lone male in a house of females and his mom loves Little Women, going so far as to name her girls after the March sisters. In this book, the author gives a nod to Little Men, Louisa May Alcott’s sequel to Little Women.
Morgan has returned to Camden, renting the apartment above the Bed and Breakfast’s bookstore. She’s not sure she can start over, but then again, maybe she has a chance to do so after making a high school mistake that had horrible consequences. Is this a new beginning? Does she have a chance with the handsome Bronson?
As Bronson’s dream of a summer camp unfolds, challenges sweep their way. I was rooting for both of them the whole story and hoping Bronson could see his dream come true and Morgan find the peace she needs. The author does not shy away from difficult situations, instead she confronts them head on and offers a solution in God.
If you’ve enjoyed the series so far, then don’t miss Bronson’s story. If you haven’t yet read The Orchard House Bed and Breakfast series, you can pick up the series here. The book stands alone, but you won’t want to miss the stories of Bronson’s older siblings, and his aunt!
