Home--in the island village of Cloud Bay--is where the heart is. . .
Leah Santelli always knew that Zach Harper, son of a rock legend and her best friend's brother, was painfully out of reach. Then, on the night of her eighteenth birthday, Leah shocked herself by asking for--and receiving--the gift she wanted: one night of passion with Zach before he left town to pursue his rock star dreams. Now, years later, Zach is back in Cloud Bay to record his first solo album. His return could also be Leah's big chance to step up her own music career. But getting the producing credit she needs means spending long hours with Zach in the recording studio...and falling back into the habit of longing for him, for better or worse.
Zach used to believe that a man must put his past behind him. But coming back home for Cloud Bay's famed music festival has allowed him to finally make amends with his family and, much to his surprise, reunite with Leah. He might have left her once but now it seems he can't stay away. Trouble is, even though the heat between them burns hotter than ever, Leah has old wounds in need of healing before she can give Zach a real chance. Can he find a way to convince her that they can make more than just great music together--and that she's the one that he wants for all time?
Emma Douglas would love to live in a world where professional napping was a thing. But until then, she thinks writing books is a pretty awesome alternative. When not writing about imaginary people, she can be found reading, doing something crafty, bingewatching TV, playing her latest song crush on repeat, or singing badly in her car. She lives in Melbourne, Australia in a tiny house stuffed full of books, too many craft supplies and two cats who take up more space than you would expect.

Zach Harper constantly feels like he is living in the shadow of his famous father, and it's a daily struggle for him to break free of the shadow and earn a reputation in the music world on his own merit. He thought leaving Cloud Bay behind, and going out on his own would help him find the stardom he craved, but things didn't quite pan out like he thought, and now he finds himself returning home to face all that he left behind. Namely, Leah, a beautiful woman he spent one night with, and then walked away from without so much as a goodbye...
Leah Santelli has harbored a serious crush on Zach Harper for as long as she can remember, and the one night that they shared years ago, still lingers with her everyday. She so desperately wanted to explore the feelings their one night brought about, but Zach had other things on his mind, a music career that would bring him the stardom he craved. So, she reluctantly moved on, married another, but things didn't turn out like they were supposed to, and now she is a divorced woman trying to find her way in the music world. When she hears that Zach is returning home she is filled with reservations about seeing him again after all these years, but he could also be the one person who can help her break into the music world... problem is the moody musician has no interest in what she has to offer.
No Place Like You is a touching read that is filled with moments that will push your emotional buttons, and moments that will have your heart singing. This is my second visit to the series and I have to say I enjoyed this trip just as much as the first, these wonderful characters pulled me into their world, made me feel right at home, and their journey to finding forever left my heart happy. The story line was well crafted, it was poignant, rich with emotion, and kept me captivated from start to finish! Highly recommend you make a visit to Cloud Bay, the folks there will pull you into their world and have you never wanting to leave!
