In Forever, Alabama, Susan Sands engages her readers with a new and exciting relationship between a successful lawyer and the local therapist. Every woman in Ministry has a thing for Ben Laroux, except for Sabine O’ Connor, the town shrink/secrets keeper. Even if they haven’t really had the chance to spent time together, Sabine seems to have a particular aversion to Ben’s handsome façade. Most of her fears are obvious consequences of her past and her secret life, which need to remain hidden. But Ben really wants to have his chance, and when he finally takes her on a date, both will discover overwhelming emotions denied for too long. But Sabine’s past could easily catch up with her and jeopardize all their efforts for a quiet and joyful life.

I really liked this new chapter in Ministry. Susan Sands captivates her readers from the very first pages. I found this third book of the Alabama Series more intriguing and suspenseful than the previous ones and, as always, the author describes the characters amazingly with all their assets and flaws, and this makes them so familiar and real. I really like the way Ben and Sabine connected and developed a sparkling and deep relationship. This book of the series highlights the importance of the family bond, but in a new light. Sometimes family represents our main strength and anchor. In other cases, through adversity, it helps us to find our own path. Forever, Alabama is very well written and a delight to read.
