Don Amos and Alice Conroy have both known their share of tragedy and heartache. Don lost his wife and son in a car explosion that had been intended for him. Alice's husband was handling meth and was killed in an explosion that blew up their home. Both have come to Blessings, Georgia for a new start. Forever My Hero is another installment in Sharon Sala's Blessings, Georgia series but, while I've read and enjoyed many of her books, this wasn't one of my favorites. It has a lot going for it, but the romance takes a back seat to the rest of the story about an impending hurricane and its affect on the town and its inhabitants. The romance between Don and Alice was palpable, and I enjoyed the development of Don's relationship with Alice's children. However, the constant switching to what was happening to other characters made for a disjointed reading experience. I received a copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Sharon Sala has brought us back to Blessings, Georgia. It centers around Danner Amos and Alice Conroy. The town has a mystery to solve with the Elliot Graham was found hurt near Gray Goose Lake. It is hampered by the lack of evidence and the impending hurricane. Dan and Alice find purpose again after tragedy strikes them both. They are more drawn to each other as events put them together when Alice hurts her hand and her daughter gets lost during a school field trip. We see familiar faces from Blessings and how they each react to the hurricane. Sharon has given us a glimpse into the lives of the people of Blessings, Georgia. She delights her readers with tales from the familiar characters from past stories and we get to catch up with them. She cleverly intertwines the story between her main characters with everyone else who lives there and how their actions affect each other. It was nice to see and remember everyone and their stories. I look forward to reading about the people of Blessings, Georgia. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I would like to thank NetGalley and Sourcebooks Casablanca for this privilege.
Forever My Hero by Sharon Sala is the 7th book in her Blessings, Georgia series. Having read all the books in this series, I looked forward to reading this book, and to no surprise, I loved it. Sharon Sala always gives us wonderful feel good romances and a sweet couple we root hard for. Alice Conroy, our heroine, has had a rough time, especially when she first moved to Blessings, Georgia with her two children, Charlie and Patty. Her husband was killed in an explosion making meth, and his family tossed her and the children out in Blessings, with no financial help. Alice has since found a home, and now works at the hardware store, and the children go to the local school. Dan Amos, our hero, moved to Blessings, after his wife and child were killed in a car explosion meant for him, as Dan was a prosecuting attorney at that time. He now oversees rental properties, ensuring people are taken care of. Since he does handyman work, he visits the hardware store where Alice works often. In a short time they will become friends, especially after Alice injures her hand, and Dan is the one who takes her to the hospital. When Alice’s daughter, Patty gets hurt while on a school outing, Dan is the hero, saving Patty, as well as the Conroy’s dog. This continues to push them closer, as they have a similar tragic history. When Alice learns the Patty was being bullied, she steps up to protect her daughter, and when the other children’s family comes to apologize, it is Dan who stands up to them about bullying and the threats if they do not deal with this situation with their children. With a major hurricane about to hit the entire town of Blessings, Dan makes sure that Alice, the children and another local resident move to his properties, which is safer and has a generator. It was fun to watch Dan and Alice falling hard for each other, and both getting past the tragedies that followed them to Blessings. What follows is a heartwarming & emotional story that touched our hearts on many levels. I loved Dan, who was a wonderful, sweet, loving and understanding man, as well as being wonderful with the children. It was a joy to see them have a second chance at love in Blessings, Georgia. Sharon Sala writes another fabulous story that had us hooked from the start. She amazes me that she continually gives us such great couples that we become invested in, with each and every book. Forever My Hero was a sweet romance, with a great couple, wonderful secondary characters that we love. If you enjoy a pure romance, wonderful characters, great couples, and a small town atmosphere, then you should be reading this series. Forever My Hero was a wonderful read, written so very well by Sharon Sala.
Could not get enough of this emotionally thrilling, heartwarming and action packed romantic journey for two very wounded hearts that found healing arms even though they were not looking for them...... Such an uplifting and engaging story that had me rapidly turning pages and lost in the world unfolding before me.
It was great to return to Blessings, Georgia and catch up with all the townspeople. The book jumps around a bit checking in on different people from previous stories in the series which makes it a bit disjointed. It took a while to get to Dan and Alice's story. However, once it did I thoroughly enjoyed it. Both Dan and Alice's spouses died as a result of explosions, and they have a lot of history to accept and start a new relationship. I love Me Sala's descriptions of the town. You can imagine walking down Main St and seeing the businesses which helps focus on the story. I would have preferred the characters were woven into Dan and Alice's story rather than having chapters dedicated to them. It would have raised my rating to 4 stars! I received a free ARC eBook from Netgalley and the publisher for an honest review.
This was a heartwarming small town romance that returned us to Blessings, GA as the townspeople prepare for the arrival of a hurricane. There is a lot going on in this story and you bounce around from character to character but the core of the story involves Dan Amos and Alice Conroy. Both of these characters have been hit hard by life but as they become friends they slowly help the other heal and learn to live and love again. It's beautiful to watch as their relationship begins to evolve. The book is very well done and I think everyone will enjoy. Definitely a recommended read.
What a truly wonderful addition to the Blessing, Georgia series. There are so many heartfelt moments in this story that it is hard to pick one. Such a “blessed” community that takes care of their own. Alice Conroy was dropped off in Blessing with her two children and only the clothes on their backs, by her husband’s family, after the death of her husband. She was fortunate that she was able to find a job and a place to live for her little family. Dan Amos, former lawyer, is now taking care of rental properties for Aidan Payne and has seen Alice around town. He has not been interested in a relationship since his wife and son were murdered by someone who was trying to kill him. As he steps in to help Alice and her children, when they are in need, he finds himself wanting to be there for them…all the time. When a hurricane heads their way, Dan will protect not only Alice and her family, but other town members as they pull together to try to stay alive. Ms. Sala writes such wonderful stories and characters, characters that you wish you knew and lived in your town.
