Saving Jake by Sharon Sala


Love heals in New York Times bestselling author Sharon Sala's newest contemporary romance

There is always hope

After eight years in the Marines, Jacob Lorde returns to Blessings, Georgia, with no plans other than to hole up in his empty house and heal what's left of his soul. But with a charming next door neighbor and a town full of friendly people, keeping to himself is easier said than done.

As long as you can come home

Laurel Payne understands far too well what Jake is going through, after witnessing her late husband experience similar problems. She's in no hurry to jump into another relationship with a complicated guy, but their attraction is undeniable-and perhaps exactly what both of them need.

Veronica☆☆☆☆
This is a beautiful story. We learn early on that Jake and Laurel have had their share of difficulties in life. Jake has just returned home from war, having been injured, and Laurel is a widow raising a child on her own. Unfortunately for Laurel and Jake there are still trials ahead.

Jake and Laurel are neighbours and life keeps putting them together. Jake proves to be a good neighbour to have, helping Laurel out when she is in a bind. Their feelings and romance take time to develop and nothing is hurried. It feels natural.

In the background, there are a few not so nice things happening. The family of Laurel's late husband blame her for his death and are harassing her. While a man from Jake's past that he helped put in jail is planning revenge.

We get to see the various storylines come together through the eyes of not only our couple, but various residents of the town. A theme of karma and good triumphing over evil is woven into Saving Jake that gives it a lovely wholesomeness that I found comforting.

There is a warmth and sense of community in the town of Blessings. From the very end of the story we get a hint of the next book in the series. I look forward to visiting Blessings again.
