Once in a Blue Moon
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Sharon Sala brings you back to Blessings, Georgia
How often do you find a love like this?
Cathy Terry is tired of running. Full of fear and hope, she backpacked across the country to Blessings, Georgia, not knowing if or when her abusive ex-husband would catch up to her. In Blessings she glimpses a safe haven and the closest feeling to home she's had in a long time—even more so when she meets Duke Talbot. The sweet, strong, and handsome rancher provides a shoulder to lean on. The stakes get higher as the community embraces her and her relationship with Duke deepens—but can Cathy claim a new home and family before her past claims her?

The 10th outing in Sala's Blessings, Georgia series (after The Way Back to You) is less interested in delivering a fresh romance than in placidly checking in with the vast cast of familiar locals. Ostensibly, the heroine is Cathy Terry, who divorces her criminal husband, takes a $30 million settlement, and runs, ending up in Blessings on a whim. When she sprains an ankle during a morning run, farmer Duke Talbot happens to be passing by and stops to helps her. Duke's movie-star looks and white-knight complex make him a well-suited caretaker for Cathy's wounded heart and protector from the ex who wants her dead. The plot may technically qualify as romantic suspense, but there's virtually no tension, and the repetitive, expositional dialogue and abundant backstories of passing townsfolk drag down the pace. Diehard series fans will appreciate this outing, but the uninitiated should not start here.
What a fabulous addition to the Blessings, Georgia series. This may be the first book I’ve read in this series, but I will read the previous books, as soon as time permits. Cathy comes to Blessings, Georgia after a backpacking trip and decides to stay for a while, since winter is approaching. She has secrets and we’ll learn what they are during our read of this wonderful story. While out running, Cathy takes a spill and Duke is the man who takes her to the hospital. Cathy soon finds herself falling in love with this wonderful town and it’s residents. Will Cathy finally get her own happily ever after? I won’t leave any spoilers, so grab your copy and see what happens.
I received an advanced reader copy of this book from NetGalley and this is my voluntary and honest review.
