Let’s return once again to ‘Blessings, Georgia‘ for Duke and Cathy’s story in ‘Once in a Blue Moon‘. The release date is August 25, 2020. I have loved this series for a long time, and every new title is a gem that I cannot wait to explore.
Cathy has just divorced her abusive, wealthy husband who makes veiled threats at their final meeting. She’s decided to leave life as she knew it far behind… okay, she’s running as far as she can to start fresh with no ex to threaten her new, hopefully, safe life. She’s decided to settle in Blessings, Georgia for the winter, at least, for the town is welcoming and feels safe for now. Unfortunately, Cathy suffered a bad fall while out and the good side to that is meeting a knight in shining armor in the form of Duke, a local rancher. A friendship soon develops, although each is rapidly falling in love and hoping the other feels the same.
Cathy wants nothing more than to settle down in Blessings, stay with the man she’s come to trust and love, and feel safe in a town full of kind, good-hearted people for the rest of her days. When trouble comes searching for her trying to bring her past into her present Cathy must make decisions – run again, or take a stand for her future with the man she loves at her side.
As always in the ‘Blessings, Georgia‘ series, you’ll find humor, a touch of suspense, almost instant attraction kind of love, and people who feel as real as your next-door neighbors. I enjoyed Duke and Cathy’s road to a happy ever after so much. Sure, there were some potholes, but nothing worth having comes easily (most times). If you love a really good romance, with people you’ll feel comfortable with immediately, in a town that doesn’t know the meaning of a stranger… then ‘Once in a Blue Moon‘ is a perfect match for you.
