Book Description


“Mystery, romance and
humor fill the pages
of this fast-paced adventure.”

In a world of espionage and deceit, Agent Melanie Ward’s life is rocked by scandal. She returns in Second Chance, Book 2 of the Agent Melanie Ward Novels, ready to reclaim the life she once had. But her rival, Agent Finn Parker and his father, Senator Hugh Parker, have very different plans for her future.

Adam Chase, the chef with the ability to assemble a rifle in seconds, has rejoined the crew of mobsters that followed him on his rise as a professional assassin.

Melanie throws herself into the work
she loves – life is all about the mission, sanctioned or not.

Danny Ashe, her college obsession and first love, is back and going through a divorce. Her friend, Trish, hates him, her mother makes Thanksgiving dinner and Carla can say Salvador Luhan three times in one sentence (and that’s before breakfast).

In Second Chance, Melanie is caught between two worlds, two loves and a decision that will change everything … or nothing at all … but in the end, some- one has to die.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely second outing - fantastic May 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this second book in the series. After reading the first book, I immediately purchased the second. The storyline was fantastic with the twists and turns with the relationships of Melanie and how they progressed kept me reading. I couldn't put the book down unless I had to and can't wait for book 3. I want to know what happens to Melanie next! Exciting.

5.0 out of 5 stars None February 18, 2012
By Jen
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is even better than the first. The relationship and love between Melanie and Adam is so well written and leaves you pulling for them the whole book. The suspense in this book is even more intense than the first.

5.0 out of 5 stars A definite page turner June 29, 2012
By Suze
Format:Kindle Edition
Really enjoyed this second book as well, once again lots of twists and turns in the story and action packed from start to finish. Can't wait to see how things progress in Book 3. It's one of those stories that sticks in your head after you finish reading it and you wonder how things are going to turn out and what the characters will get up to long after you put the kindle down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like Living Lies? You'll love Second Chance! April 29, 2012
By AEA23
I really enjoyed the first book in the series, Living Lies, but Second Chance is packed full of action and her two loves, Adam and Danny are back. This book has tons of excitement and you won't want to stop reading. The epilogue has me excited to read the third book! Thanks for writing a great series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! February 26, 2012
By maureen
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have been looking for a new author...I love Iris Johansen, James Patterson, Tess Gerritsen, and Alex Kava the best but I am waiting on all of their new books to come out. I was looking for a new series and now I can't wait until August so I can read the third book in this series! I am hoping for this new book to focus more on Melanie Ward "the spy" but love the relationships that she has formed so far!! Great book, Great Author!!! Now that I have read both of these books...I am looking for yet another series to read...please write faster.

5.0 out of 5 stars action galore February 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought second chance was even better than the first book. It is full of action and kept me guessing. It was a real page turner. I found myself screaming to the book....NO don't go there....of course no one heard me but my dog....but still.

I loved the detail, the character development all of it. I can't wait for book three and four.

It was a fun ride!

I started this morning and couldn't stop. I can't wait for no. 3. I loved every interaction, emotion, and storyline. I just wish it could have kept going. Book 3 can't come fast enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this book!! June 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I couldn't wait to download this book after reading the first book in the series (Living Lies) and I was definately not disappointed. I really like that the book focuses on both the main character's personal life as well as her professional espionage life. Both books were a lot of fun.

2.0 out of 5 stars Unsatisfying
I read the 1st of this series, and I found it surprisingly satisfying. Unfortunately, this 2nd seems disconnected and pointless – i.e. the point is not evident. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Character to be admired
This book, as with the first in the series, was another "can't put it down novel". Melanie Ward is a character to be admired and followed.
