Love heals in New York Times bestselling author Sharon Sala's newest contemporary romance
There is always hope
After eight years in the Marines, Jacob Lorde returns to Blessings, Georgia, with no plans other than to hole up in his empty house and heal what's left of his soul. But with a charming next door neighbor and a town full of friendly people, keeping to himself is easier said than done.
As long as you can come home
Laurel Payne understands far too well what Jake is going through, after witnessing her late husband experience similar problems. She's in no hurry to jump into another relationship with a complicated guy, but their attraction is undeniable-and perhaps exactly what both of them need.

I love Sharon Sala's books! Jake has come home after getting out of the Marines and having some problems. Laurel knows all about soldiers and the issues they have when coming home from war. Her late husband had the issues and couldn't handle it. She doesn't really want to get involved anyone and neither does Jake but there is an attraction there. I liked that the two of them were so realistic as were the problems they were facing.
Laurel's in-laws are terrible. I completely disliked her mother-in-law and just wanted to smack her (hard!). I loved how Jake was with her daughter though. He was protective, kind and just a great guy. The people of Blessings are still great and it is wonderful to come back and visit with them.
It was a 5/5 for me. I love Blessings, Georgia.
