The Blessings in Life with Sharon Sala of You and Only You (#Giveaway)




The blessings in my life:

Family.

Not wasting the gift of storytelling.

After a divorce, reconnecting with my childhood sweetheart and having eight of the most wonderful years of my life with him before he died of cancer.

A blessing I never expected oddly enough has come from a social media site – the infamous Facebook. I have the best readers in the world, bar none.  Once we connected, they began more than readers. They are my friends. There are so many I will never meet, but I know their stories, and their tragedies. I know their triumphs and their losses, and when I lose one, I grieve the loss of a good friend.

Having lost so many family members, I can state with all my heart that life itself is the true blessing. We come here with a purpose. Not everyone realizes that. Not everyone follows that path.  But while we are here, it is our job to do the best we can with what we have, and be the light for those who still stand in the shadows.

It is a blessing to me that I know this, and accept the daily challenge of keeping negativity and anger from my heart.

Welcome to Book One in the Blessings, Georgia series of Southern contemporary romance from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Sharon Sala. With the support of her handsome, unassuming friend Mike Dalton, LilyAnne Bronte is finally ready to put the past in the past.

It's never too late
Mike Dalton has secretly loved LilyAnn Bronte since they were all children together in the small town of Blessings, Georgia. But one fateful day T.J. Lachlan roars into town and starts showering LilyAnn with his charm, and Mike feels his dream of them being more than friends slipping away.

To find the love you missed
LilyAnn, as anyone in Blessings will tell you, let herself go after her fiancee was killed in Iraq. The attention of the handsome new guy shocks her into a revelation: she's ready to live again, and maybe the best is yet to come. The thing is, everybody in Blessings is sure it's Mike and LilyAnn who belong together-and they're willing to do whatever it takes to make LilyAnn realize the love of her life has been by her side all along.
