Mid-thirties photojournalist CJ Beck has been running from her past since she bolted from her family’s ranch on the Rocky Mountain Front after high school. Her life in a war zone means never having time to remember the pain, but a sniper’s bullet forces her to return to Montana and confront her demons.


As a teenager, CJ had everything she wanted—a loving home and steady boyfriend. Her father’s death on a lonely Montana highway was the beginning of the end of her girlhood dreams. She created a new image as a tough professional, avoiding her four brothers, family obligations, and any real commitment.  But when a sniper’s bullet kills her husband in front of her, she’s sent back home to recover. What her bureau chief doesn’t know is that the belief she’s responsible for her husband’s death makes it impossible for her to take pictures.


The terms of her return to the front depends on a clean bill of health from a psychiatrist.  CJ knows she needs a lot more than that if she’s ever to take a photo again. But when she’s forced to deal with the past, including a man who wants a second chance at a relationship, as well as new threats to the family inheritance, she may face her greatest challenge of all.


Home Is Where the Heart Is is a story about of a young woman who must confront her family’s past and help secure its future to discover what real happiness means. If you enjoy women’s fiction with romantic elements, you’ll enjoy this book.

About the author

Casey Dawes has lived a varied life–some by choice, some by circumstance. Her master’s degree in theater didn’t prepare her for anything practical, so she’s been a teacher, stage hand, secretary, database guru, manager in Corporate America, business coach, book shepherd, and writer.


She inherited an itchy foot from her grandfather, traveling to Europe and Australia and many towns and cities across the US while in business. She’s lived in towns with a population of 379 and in an apartment complex on 42nd Street and 9th Avenue in Manhattan. She’s dragged her belongings from New Jersey … to Massachusetts, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Virginia, California, and Montana.


She believes in true love and the ability of honest, thoughtful conversations to solve most problems.


Her stories contain characters who have to deal with real life and real problems to find real love.

California Sunset: She’s a single parent of a teenage son who’s just lost her high-paying technology position in Silicon Valley. He’s a widower from Montana who’s looking for a new start revitalizing the iconic Ocean Reads bookstore.

California Wine: She’s come to Italy for a little adventure, good food, and a last trip with her college-aged daughter. When a good-looking Italian winemaker invites her to dinner, she finds more than she anticipated. But how can romance in Italy be more than a fling when she lives on the California coast?

He’s a recently returned veteran, trying to recreate his life but hampered by physical injury and PTSD. Can they find a way past their wounds to trust each other?


California Thyme: Mandy’s mother is a fading star with a mental illness. She hasn’t seen her father since he abandoned them when she was five. The last thing she needs is a Hollywood romance on a Yosemite Park set. But James, the director, makes her an offer that’s too good to pass up.


California Sunrise: Alicia is an 18-year-old single mom with a young child on the Asperger’s scale. Pediatrician Raul Mendez’s entire family was deported when he was 14. They have nothing in common. Or do they?
