NO PLACE LIKE HOME by Amy R. Anguish
GENRE: Inspirational Contemporary Romance
PUBLISHER: Scrivenings Press LLC
RELEASE DATE: December 7, 2021
Can love secure Adrian’s wandering heart?
Roots are overrated, at least to someone like Adrian Stewart, preacher’s kid, who has never lived anywhere longer than six years. That’s why her job with MidUSLogIn is so perfect for her—lots of travel and staying nowhere long enough to have it feel like home. But when work takes her to Memphis, TN, closer to her family for the first time in years, and in the same small office as Grayson Roberts, she starts to question her job, her lack of home, and even her memories of her rocky past with the church.
Gray is intrigued by Adrian from the moment he sees her, and he’s determined to get to the bottom of why this girl who loves old movies and hums when she works won’t go to church with him. As they grow closer, he wants more, too, but how can he convince her to stay in Memphis when she doesn’t believe in home—or God? Can he use his own broken past to break through hers?
playlist for No Place Like Home
by Amy R. Anguish, author of No Place Like Home
I have to admit, I don’t normally have a playlist for my books. I’m not one of these authors who listen to a certain type of music to get in the mood to write. Instead, I let my characters dictate what happens, but that’s another post.
This latest book, however, is a bit different. My main character, Adrian, is an old musical lover and constantly hums. And when your character is always humming or watching musicals, you end up with songs being mentioned in the book. Which sets itself up for a playlist.
Add to that one scene where she participates in a program, singing for the older members of a congregation, and that throws in a few more songs. So, in order to prepare for full reading pleasure, be sure to snag some of these tunes to listen to as you discover what else Adrian likes (and dislikes) in No Place Like Home. And why her humming makes her coworker Gray so happy. 😉
- Walkin’ in Memphis
- Singin’ in the Rain
- As Time Goes By
- Unchained Melody
- Swinging on a Star
- A medley of songs about traveling that include ‘Come Fly with Me,’ ‘Chattanooga Choo Choo,’ ‘Surrey with the Fringe on Top,’ and ‘The Trolley Song.’
- Anything Glenn Miller Orchestra
- Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
- Great is Thy Faithfulness
What do you think? Any favorite songs of yours listed there? Any others you think might fit considering the list already in place? I’m always up for learning of new great tunes.
Amy R Anguish grew up a preacher’s kid, and in spite of having lived in seven different states that are all south of the Mason Dixon line, she is not a football fan. Currently, she resides in Tennessee with her husband, daughter, and son, and usually a bossy cat or two.

A great Play List of songs! Some of my favorites! Unchained Melody, Singin’ in the Rain, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, and Great is Thy Faithfulness are all favorites of mine! Great job, Amy!
Thanks so much! I just love older songs. 🙂
Wonderful story. The playlist is special as oldies are what I enjoy. Blue Moon, Sentimental Journey.
Those are great songs, too. I can definitely see my character loving them. 😉
I love some of these songs! Come Fly With Me is one of my favorites, as is Unchained Melody. Thanks for sharing.
Nice! Songs you don’t mind getting stuck in your head, right?
A musician and music-lover myself, I loved the character of Adrian and her penchant for “oldies but goodies!” Great playlist!!
I’m so glad you enjoyed my music-loving character.
Great is Thy Faithfulness
One of my all-time favorites.
Sounds really great. Unchained melody is my favorite song of all time.
It’s a great one.
no fav songs
It’s hard to pick, isn’t it? There’s so many good ones!
I grew up on all those songs. It sure brings back memories. The book sounds fabulous. Thank you so much for sharing. God bless you.
So glad you like the sound of my story! And songs. 🙂
Nice cover. It sounds like a really interesting book. Thank you for sharing.
Thanks so much. I love how the cover turned out.
I don’t listen to music or watch television so haven’t heard any of those songs
Most of them are older ones. They probably aren’t on TV now much anyway. 😉
What a great playlist. Makes me want to listen while reading.
Perfect! I hope if you do, you’ll let me know if it enhances your experience. 🙂
I always enjoyed Walkin’ in Memphis, and Great is Thy Faithfulness, is one of the all time great Hymns!
I completely agree. That hymn has gotten me through some rough times. 🙂
I love oldies but goodies songs from my generation. Thanks for your great generosity.
I like them, too!
The beautiful cover and synopsis make me want to read this book. Thank you for posting
Thank you so much!
