I'll Stand By You by Sharon Sala
About The Book:
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Sharon Sala brings new meaning to family in her small-town Southern romance. No one is alone
Dori Grant is no stranger to hardship. As a young single mother in the gossip-fueled town of Blessings, Georgia, she's weathered the storm of small-town disapproval most of her life. But when Dori loses everything within the span of an evening, she realizes she has no choice but to turn to her neighbors.
As long as there is love to give
Everyone says the Pine boys are no good, but Johnny Pine has been proving the gossips wrong ever since his mother died and he took over raising his brothers. His heart goes out to the young mother and child abandoned by the good people of Blessings. Maybe he can be the one to change all that...
Sharon Sala is probably one of my most favorite authors, and I know she is one of my most favorite people (and not just because we share a fabulous first name!). I've known Sharon for many years and admire her writing skills and her ability to cover such a wide area of topics in her stories. I adore her suspense novels and love her romances, but probably my favorite of Sharon's books is her "Blessings, Georgia" series and her latest book, "I'll Stand By You," is just a complete delight to read.
Sharon takes her readers back to the small town of Blessings, Georgia - where the town folk are in each other's pockets, but for the most have everyone's best interests at heart! The local beauty parlor, run by Ruby "Sister" Dye, is a hotbed of small town information, but it is also the heart of this quaint town and the place of origin for some of the best, heart-felt scenes of the book.
In this story, single mom Dori Grant and heroic Johnny Pine are the central characters - two young people who need each other and boost each other up by combining their families and overcoming some of the worst odds imaginable.
Sharon has populated this series of books with unforgettable characters who drive the story that is filled with romance, a bit of mystery, and a lot of fun.
I highly recommend anything written by Sharon Sala - especially the Blessings series. The perfect read for any time of the year, but absolutely great for summer time reading bliss!
This are the first two books in Sharon's series!
