Sometimes it seems that the small town of Blessings, Georgia couldn’t possibly hold any secrets thanks to the gossip of residents and the “everyone knows your business” reality of any small town.  Yet Phoebe has managed to keep one very important secret from the man she’ll always love with the help of his grandfather.  Now Aidan is heading home to Blessings and he’s about to get far more than he ever expected to find in his former hometown.  Once he believed he’d spend his life in this town with the young woman he’d loved forever it seemed.  But one devastating fire, a town quick to lay blame and the leaving everything behind that he cared about decision would forever change and haunt Aidan.  Now he’s returning to settle his grandfather’s estate, and hoping that he can escape town once again without running into Phoebe, the woman he loves to this very day.  Fate couldn’t be that cruel to him twice.  But Aidan has surprises waiting for him on this reluctant trip hack home… one he never, ever expected that will either totally devastate him or bring him full circle to the woman he’s never stopped loving.

We all have our “go to” authors when we’re looking for a specific style of romance.  For me I can always depend on a Sharon Sala romance for a believable, emotional small town story that could have happened to my real life neighbors down the street.  Her ability to always take me back home again is just one of the reasons I return to her stories time after time.  Come Back to Me is an emotional romance of what should have been years spent together that was torn apart by events and circumstances beyond their control…  and now will either end hope or open up doors to the future for Phoebe and Aidan.  I was completely wrapped up in this romance and loved every moment spent back in Blessings, Georgia once again.  If you’re in the mood for a romance that will leave your heart melting and your emotions engaged, then I’d highly recommend Come Back to Me to any Romance reader who enjoys small towns, love that lasts a lifetime and happy endings long overdue.
