Sully Raines sets out to find his birth mother and ends up in Blessings, Georgia. A new surprise awaits him here, but of the best kind―his childhood sweetheart, whom he hasn’t seen since she moved away when they were teens, is living in Blessings now. He’s not sure she’s as happy to see him as he is to see her, but it’s been a lot of years, and a lot of water under the bridge.
Sully’s heartfelt search for answers about his past might just turn out to be the key to his future.

My Rating: 4.5 stars
I absolutely love returning to the world of Blessings, Georgia for another heartwarming experience. While The Way Back to You is the ninth title in Sharon Sala’s series don’t be afraid to pick it up and lose yourself in this realistic, charming world. Each title can be read as a standalone with mention of other people we may have already met or perhaps their stories are yet to come, but it is a small town romance full of interesting characters with somewhat inter-connecting lives as any small town is.
This time around we meet up with Sully who as a retired firefighter has recently received news that changed his worldview and is headed to Blessings, Georgia to try to find answers to so many questions running through his mind. The very last person he expected to find – actually rescue – is Melissa, his first kiss, a woman from his youth who slipped from his life many years ago. Now as mature adults they have that spark still between them and perhaps a second chance at a life together. But they’ll have to go through some bumps in the road to find that happy ever after ending.
The Way Back to You is full of anticipation, friendships, sudden life changes, and a love that never really died just went into sleep mode for a few years. Karma definitely has a play in this story, and we’ll get even more of one character’s life story who has been somewhere in every single book of this series. I enjoyed Sully’s and Missy’s journey to a second chance love very much. I would not hesitate to recommend their story (or the entire series) to any reader who loves small-town romances, believable characters, a truly feel-good book, and a story that will linger long after the final page is turned.
