Description

A USA Today Bestseller!

"Sharon Sala is a consummate storyteller. If you can stop reading, then you're a better woman than me."—DEBBIE MACOMBER, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

Welcome to Blessings, Georgia, the best small town in the South. No, there aren't many secrets kept there. And yes, everybody knows your business. But when bad things happen, good people come to your rescue.

Growing up in a troubled foster home, Mercy Dane knew she could never rely on anyone but herself. She's used to giving her all to people who don't give her a second glance, so when she lands in Blessings, Georgia, she's flabbergasted when the town opens its arms to her. She never dreamed she'd ever find family or friends—or a man who looks at her as if she hung the stars.

Police Chief Lon Pittman is getting restless living in sleepy little Blessings. But the day Mercy Dane roars into his life on the back of a motorcycle, practically daring him to pull her over, he's lost. There's something about Mercy's tough-yet-vulnerable spirit that calls to Lon, and he will do anything in his power to make her realize that home isn't just where the heart is—home is where their heart is.

A USA Today Bestseller!

"Sharon Sala is a consummate storyteller. If you can stop reading, then you're a better woman than me."—DEBBIE MACOMBER, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

Welcome to Blessings, Georgia, the best small town in the South.
No, there aren't many secrets kept there. And yes, everybody knows your business. But when bad things happen, good people come to your rescue.

Growing up in a troubled foster home, Mercy Dane knew she could never rely on anyone but herself. She's used to giving her all to people who don't give her a second glance, so when she lands in Blessings, Georgia, she's flabbergasted when the town opens its arms to her. She never dreamed she'd ever find family or friends—or a man who looks at her as if she hung the stars.

Police Chief Lon Pittman is getting restless living in sleepy little Blessings. But the day Mercy Dane roars into his life on the back of a motorcycle, practically daring him to pull her over, he's lost. There's something about Mercy's tough-yet-vulnerable spirit that calls to Lon, and he will do anything in his power to make her realize that home isn't just where the heart is—home is where their heart is.

        Sala’s clunky fourth Blessings, Georgia series (after Saving Jake) combines second chances and homespun sweetness in a pithy story. Mercy Dane has spent the majority of her life alone, bouncing from one foster home to another while learning how to bake tasty treats and rely on herself. A Christmas good deed catapults her from the big city of Savannah, Ga., to the small town of Blessing, where she finds much more than holiday cheer. Police chief Lon Pittman never forgot the anonymous young woman he met seven years ago on the worst night of her life. Imagine his surprise when the leather-clad, motorcycle-riding woman who blows into town to donate her rare-type blood and save the life of one of the local nurses turns out to be the one woman who was never far from his thoughts. The story is rife with clichés. The essence of small-town life and the joys of chosen family shine through, and glimpses into the thoughts and lives of the secondary characters give the plot some depth and a sense of continuity, but this still feels like Sala phoned it in.

        April 1, 2017
        A very traditional, chaste, contemporary romance with an emphasis on faith, family, and community.The fourth novel in Sala's (Saving Jake, 2016, etc.) Blessings, Georgia series offers an original meet-cute when the heroine's motorcycle is pulled over by the police chief as she races from Savannah to small-town Blessings to donate her rare blood to a car accident victim. Mercy Dane was raised by the foster care system in near poverty, making her self-reliant and resilient. When she learns that the recipient of her donated blood is her long-lost older sister, Mercy can't refuse the offer to move to Blessings to explore her newly discovered relations. Descriptions of Mercy as tough and resistant to relationships don't mesh with her tendency to sob when insulted or her willingness to pull up her roots and move an hour away to live in a stranger's house. Lon is a more consistent, if bland, character: faithful and honorable, he reassures the skittish Mercy, "If you don't quit me, I can promise I'll never quit you." Blessings is populated by the usual stock characters, including a trio of petty, jealous women, a lonely salon owner who lives for gossip, and a stern judge. While small-town romance is an inherently nostalgic subgenre, Sala pushes the plausibility envelope. A place where Italian-Americans are called "foreigners" and where black leather and a bike helmet mark a woman as an outsider may seem more bizarre and unsettling than attractive to many readers. Sala's fans will enjoy returning to a picture-perfect Southern town with wholesome American values and a few bad apples, but others may be put off by its predictable geography.
