Blessings, Georgia, Book 6
Phoebe Ritter and Aidan Payne were high school sweethearts. A suspicious fire burns down Aidan’s father’s business and kills the baker next store, who happens to be Phoebe’s father. When her mother accuses Aidan’s father, George, of arson, the young couple are ripped apart.
Even though George is cleared of any wrongdoing, the suspect is never caught and the small town of Blessings is still suspicious of George. After his wife dies, he moves along with Aidan to New Orleans, leaving the small town and bad memories behind.
Almost twenty years later, Aidan’s grandfather passes away, leaving Aidan his estate. He owned several rental properties in Blessings plus his own large home, so Aidan goes back, preparing to stay for as long as it takes to sell the properties and settle the estate. He is determined to protect his heart, fearing that Phoebe, the only woman he ever loved, is undoubtedly married by now.
Aidan is shocked to learn that Phoebe is not married, and that she has a son, a senior in high school. The resemblance is uncanny, and he quickly realizes that he has a son. Determined to be a good father despite being so late to the process, Aidan quickly forgives Phoebe for not telling him. She is still in love with Aidan, and they find their way back to one another.
Blessings has a lot of secrets that slowly come out, turning their lives upside down. But Aidan and Phoebe get the happy ending they deserve. This is another sweet addition to this series that brings to mind Robyn Carr or Debbie Macomber with no real sex, just romance and small town charm. I’ve only read one other book in this series, the previous one, but I would like to go back and read the rest.
