The Way Back to You

Sourcebooks Casablanca. (Blessings, Georgia, Bk. 9). Jan. 2020. 384p. ISBN 9781492673712. pap. $7.99. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
After taking an early retirement, Sully Raines is on the search for the birth mother he never knew until the passing of the mother who raised him. His search leads to Blessings, GA, where he’s face-to-face with his childhood sweetheart, Melissa. Now a young widow, Melissa lives a quiet existence; encountering Sully after 20 years is the last thing she expected. Once reunited, the pair help each other heal and find answers to unresolved questions with support from the wider Blessings community. This latest series entry (after A Rainbow Above Us) features likable characters, but each plot twist seems more convenient than the last, and the narrative meanders along at a relatively slow pace without much tension or conflict.
VERDICT Best for readers of sweet romances already familiar with the series.
