I enjoyed witnessing Melanie’s transformation from tightly wound attorney, focused solely on her job and her goal to move her Aunt Phoebe back to DC, to a woman who appreciates the warm and caring residents of the “valley,” including the handsome paramedic who rescued her. And Jackson? He was solid and sturdy in his faith and in his role in life and in his community, and reminded me so much of my own real life hero. 🙂
Country versus city made for some fun sparring, and big city lawyer pitted against small town dad in their battle over what was best for their beloved Phoebe. With a subtle faith element, Second Chance Romance embraces a big life question:
Why do bad things happen to good people?
“Sometimes bad things happen we don’t understand, but God knows…He’ll make it all good in the end.”
A sweet girl, a kind hero, a matchmaking aunt, all collide with a determined lawyer in Second Chance Romance, taking you on a journey that’ll leave a smile on your face when you reach the end.
Something to Ponder: Sometimes, like Melanie, we allow our identity to get so wrapped up in our job/career, that we lose our real selves in the process. How do we retain a sense of self outside our job?
Disclaimer: A free copy of Second Chance Romance was provided to me by the author with no expectation of a review, favorable or otherwise. This review is my fair and unbiased opinion, and other than the free book, I was in no way compensated.
This makes things a whole lot more complicated.
This is a fun, page-turner of a read, filled with smiles and memories. I ended up reading it over an afternoon (that should have been spent working, but oh well). You will not be disappointed with this cozy Christian mystery.
Second Chance Romance has two main characters: Melanie Harper and Jackson Daughtry. Melanie is an east coast divorce attorney who has had a hard-to-the-core life experience. She decides that her aunt, who lives in the small town of Sweet Gum, will be better off living with her, so she heads for the country to pack up Aunt Phoebe. On her way there, she has a car accident and is rescued by none other than Aunt Phoebe's business partner, Jackson Daughtry, who happens to also be a paramedic. Does this sound like a cookie-cutter romance story? Probably, but trust me, it isn't. I loved this book! I was hooked on this story from the very first page. It even had some turns I didn't expect. I loved the writing style, the character development, the storyline, all of it.
If you are looking for a real-life contemporary story, which has elements of love, faith, and loyalty then don't miss this one! I'll be watching for the next book from this wonderful new author.
This is a luminous line lifted from Jill Weatherholt’s Second Chance Romance, a faith-inspired song of love with the necessary lights and shadows, propelling the plot forward.
The newly released book beckoned to me for a least two reasons: I know the author through her blog, and I realize she is a great storyteller. Most importantly, her writing communicates a strong message of faith.
The story is set in the lush Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, a place I’m familiar with from my college days. From the beginning, it’s obvious how the story will end, but there’s no way to predict the twists and turns the plot will take intertwining the lives of Melanie, Jackson, and daughter Rebecca. Engaging supporting characters include perceptive Phoebe and troubled Taylor. Sensory details abound in the descriptions, like the sense of smell, particularly in the aroma of coffee served at The Bean, a gathering place for small town Sweet Gum.
It’s not hard to imagine this book adapted as a Hallmark TV movie.
