Welcome to Book One in the Blessings, Georgia series of Southern contemporary romance from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Sharon Sala. With the support of her handsome, unassuming friend Mike Dalton, LilyAnne Bronte is finally ready to put the past in the past.
It’s never too late
Mike Dalton has secretly loved LilyAnn Bronte since they were all children together in the small town of Blessings, Georgia. But one fateful day T.J. Lachlan roars into town and starts showering LilyAnn with his charm, and Mike feels his dream of them being more than friends slipping away.
To find the love you missed
LilyAnn, as anyone in Blessings will tell you, let herself go after her fiancée was killed in Iraq. The attention of the handsome new guy shocks her into a revelation: she’s ready to live again, and maybe the best is yet to come. The thing is, everybody in Blessings is sure it’s Mike and LilyAnn who belong together—and they’re willing to do whatever it takes to make LilyAnn realize the love of her life has been by her side all along.

A story of hope and redemption
Erin Macalister left the city to take care of her sick grandmother in the place she grew up in. This could not have come at a better time since she is dealing with the breakup of her marriage. There she encounters Jamie McBride, the boy she loved when she was seventeen, who is still the one that makes her heart race.
I like this book because of the topics it covered like Infidelity, infertility and dementia. As a woman who is dealing with her inability to have a child that caused the breakup of her marriage this character had me rooting for a happy ending. How do you accept that the life you had planned is not the life that you are living? How do you deal with your own problems along with your grandmother?
In rediscovering her grandmothers past she discovered her future. I admire Erin’s ability to not give up trying to the best of her ability to get up after she had fallen. These characters were well developed. The conversations that flowed was real. As you learned about the grandmothers past and how it affected her daughter and grandmother, you cannot help but hope for the best. You did not want this to end.
I received this book for free from NetGalley through Tyndale House Publishers for an honest review. This review will be posted on Goodreads, Amazon, etc.
