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.



I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I’ve read a few books from Sharon Sala before. She has a great recipe for clean contemporary romance novels that cheers up any reading any time. Count Your Blessings is a good novella that introduces us to the main players of the town called Blessings.

The heroine is Patty June, a preacher’s wife whose husband has been cheating on her. What she does when she’s finally reached her limit is hilarious and empowering. Women should be able to work their frustrations as they see fit, without being judged. I liked that Patty June remained a strong woman even when it seemd that the whole town was against her.

I also liked the women at the parlor. They were the least judgmental kind. In fact, they supported Patty June since the beginning. This novella, as short as it was, introduced many great and interesting characters. Another good thing about this book is the small town feel to it. You always gotta love the small town Southern life. There’s really nothing that compares to it.

Count Your Blessings is really a good prequel to a series that sounds very promising. I hope the author pushes through with these characters because I really believe they are worth getting to know.
