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.

Not sure that the amazing makeover of the overweight girl losing the weight to be beautiful again really makes sense or is relevant. 15 pounds is about 7 kilograms? (I'm Australian so use the metric) not sure if that seemingly small amount of weight gain is the basis for a whole book and if so feeling like Americans are a bit shallow and judgy. I assumed the main character had significant issues only to read on and find it was a short term romance and a 2 month battle to get herself back to 17 year old status 11 years on. Good lord, get over it already. Won't read the rest of the series if it's all based on this kind of shallow, ridiculous nonsense.
