Susan Sands debuts on the writing scene with “Again, Alabama”; a charming story of woman coming back home to heartache, past memories and a chance to have the life that was once supposed to be hers.


Cammie Laroux’s life as a chef falls apart, and she’s back home to rethink and rebuild her life and help her family in the meantime. Coming home also brings her up close and personal with her past love Grey Harrison who is hired to restore their historic mansion. Old feelings surface and Cammie has to decide if Grey is worth breaking her engagement.

Grey Harrison is still in love with Cammie, but circumstances ten years ago forced him to marry Cammie’s best friend and is now a father and a widower. Being with Cammie only reinforces his feelings for her, but he’s got an uphill battle to convince Cammie of his love and regain her trust.

“Again, Alabama” takes time to build interest, yet it is quaint in its own way to hold that interest. For a first time author Susan Sands does a pretty good job in keeping the readers engaged with her narration, although there is repetitiveness in few locations. As much as the story is pleasing on the mind, characters definitely need a little bit more depth and chemistry.
