Count Your Blessings: A Novella
By: Sharon Sala
Previously titled Color Me Bad, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Sharon Sala dishes up Count Your Blessings, a contemporary romance piled high with love, laughter, and plenty of heart in Blessings, Georgia!
As the respectable wife of the town preacher, Patty June Clymer never thought she’d have to worry about a cheating husband. But when things come to a head, Patty decides to take charge of her life by kicking her no-good husband out her house, and getting a total makeover at the popular local salon. With a new spiky black haircut and a new outlook on life, Patty goes from mousy and meek to living large and in charge, and fairly starts a revolution in the small town of Blessings, Georgia.
Set in a small town in Georgia, this witty novella starts in the local beauty salon. It seems like a typical day until the mistress of Patty June Clymer’s husband comes in to get her nails done for an afternoon of fun with Patty June’s minister husband. What happens next? Chaos in the beauty salon. Patty June soon becomes the talk of the town, what with her no ‘do, and her traveling to Italy. Patty June’s makeover becomes the catalyst for a woman’s movement in town.
This book was laugh out loud funny. Every time Patty June used the word “fornicate”, I thought it was hilarious and spot-on for the character. Sala captures the essence of a small-town in the South. The only complaint that I have is that it ended too soon. I was thinking there would be more. However, it is a great intro to the series. I will be adding these books to my TBR pile.
