"First let me let you in on a secret -- I've never met a Jodi Thomas book that wasn't absolutely dog eared from being read so many times. They are all like warm cozy friends that just beg to be taken back down from the book shelves and revisited....CHANCE OF A LIFETIME is destined to become one of my favorites and I'll wager that it will be yours as well. Thomas managed to interweave a host of stories and characters in this wonderful contemporary tale infused with humor and mystery." --Fresh Fiction

Cord McDowell returned to Harmony after six years in prison for a crime that was really an accident. Without anyone to testify on his behalf he had to serve out his sentence. Now he just works his job as a mechanic at a local truck company and returns home to work equally hard on his land. Both his parents passed away when he was in prison and he has no friends, except for those who smile or speak to him. Ronny Logan is one of those and his boss Tannon Parker hired him even though he is an ex-con. The sheriff is the only officer of the law who hasn't threatened him. Working is his only outlet and he expects to do that alone for the rest of his life.
Nevada Britain is the wild child of Harmony, born with money and status, she has been married three times and has taken over the ranch and oil business left by her father after her brother refused to have anything to do with it. Using all her ready cash to buy her brother out, she needs help to bring in a good year for the ranch, so that she can concentrate on the oil business. Nevada is determined that she will not go back to her ex-Bryce Galloway, even though he keeps contacting her and leaving messages. Nevada is not that stupid.
She decides to offer Cord McDowell the land that their families have always had a dispute over, all he has to do is marry her for eight months after the first frost and the herd has been sold.Read more ›
Nevada Britain's family has had a long time feud with the McDowell's. So you can imagine Cord's surprise when Nevada offers him part of her land. There is just one catch...Cord has to marry Nevada. Cord has a condition as well...Nevada has to sleep in his bed every night for as long as they are married.
Jodi Thomas has done it again. She made me fall in love with her and all the people of Harmony even more. I did not think it was possible. I loved the characters in this book although I would call them more family then I would characters from a book.
It was no surprise how Cord and Nevada's story would turn out. Neither Nevada or Cord liked each other but the more time they spent around one another they were bound to fall in love eventually. Nonetheless I still love a good love story with a happy ending. Plus, Cord and Nevada had lots of spunk between the two of them.
Another love story that I really enjoyed was Ronnie and Marty's story. It was sad but happy at the same time. I was cheering for them the whole time. I even started to tear up some at the end of their story.
Can't Stop Believing is like a good friend that you will always treasure filled with fun, laughter, and tears! A must read.
I have been waiting for Ronnie and Marty's story since they first appeared and now that their story is here,
I am So Upset I cried and ranted when I read it, how could this happen if ANYONE in this series deserves a wonderful happy ending it is Ronnie. After this there is NO WAY that Jodi could ever give Ronnie a happy ending I will like or understand.
I don't know what future books for this series will bring but at the moment I am not entirely sure that I will be getting them for myself or if i will read anymore for this series, this was VERY upsetting. I didn't expect to fall in love with Ronnie and Marty and then to have my heart ripped out along with Ronnie. I am still grieving.
I know that these are just stories to some people, but to a true lover of books this was like losing a very Dear and wonderful friend and I am having a difficult time coming to terms with it.
You know early in this tail what's going to happen to one of the long term secondary stories playing out in the back ground. That doesn't make it any easier to read. And once you start, then you can not stop. You have to find out.
The main story between Cord and Nevada plays out well. We all know who the bad guy is, but you don't seem to mind so much, because the story is not about him it's more about two people who find each other (ok, this part does uplift you). I would liked to have seen more interaction between Cord and some other members of the city. He's the same age as Rick, and his friendship with Ronnie feels too forced. Tannon could have gotten more time then just a mention here or there.
As to the other members of the town... Alex is doing her job, but we get only 1 scene with Hank; although it is a nice one. Just a "hello - good bye" view of Noah and Reagan, again. No Emily. Not a word about Liz, Clair and company either. Jodi needs to find Phil a girlfriend. The Wrights make a good showing but the best background player here is Martha Q.
I love the story, and was fast paced. It's emotional, but it's a GREAT read. I highly recommend it, just not if you're having a bad day.
