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

There’s never a dull moment in Blessings, Georgia:

  • An orphaned little girl desperately needs a new home
  • An eager couple is ready to welcome her with open arms
  • Friendly neighbors are always there for each other
  • In this southern small town, good things happen to good people

Ruby Butterman and her husband, Peanut, cannot have children, but they’re given a second chance at a family when eight-year-old orphan Carlie is left in their care. It’s a challenge for Carlie to adapt to a new town, a new school, and a new family, and when she gets bullied at school, Ruby and Peanut discover how to step up as parents, and how to make a forever family for their beloved little girl.

No summer reading list is complete without a deep, hopeful, and exciting small town romance by Sharon Sala!

“Sharon Sala’s Blessings, Georgia series is filled with unforgettable charm and delight!”—ROBYN CARR, #1 New York Times bestselling author


Carlie and her mom show up at the police station in Blessings, GA just moments before Carlie’s mom, Shirley, dies. Shirley had a heart condition and she knew she had to get Carlie taken care of. So, she heads to the best person she knows, Ruby. She knows Ruby will take care of her little girl.

There are quite a few stories happening in this novel. But, I enjoyed Ruby and Carlie the best. Basically because Carlie is so dang cute. Sometimes it is difficult to get the children right in a novel. But Sharon Sala did an excellent job.

I fluctuated between 3 and 4 stars on this one. Basically because it is almost too sweet for me and it is very predictable. But, I gave it 4 stars because it did keep me reading and I enjoyed the characters. Sometimes you just need a sweet story in your life!

This novel is part of a series. I have only read one in this series and it was ages ago. I did not feel lost or anything. So, you can read this as a stand alone.

Need a sweet read…this is it! Grab your copy today.

I received this novel from the publisher for a honest review.
