Second Chance Romance

GIVEAWAY

WEATHERHOLD, JILL
SECOND CHANCE ROMANCE

Small-town Daddy...

Jackson Daughtry's jobs are a paramedic and part-owner of a local café keep him busy -- but the single dad's number one priority is raising his little girl with love and small-town values.

And when his business partner's hotshot lawyer niece comes to town planning to disrupt their lives by moving her aunt away, Jackson has to set Melanie harper straight.

When circumstances force them to work side by side in the coffee shop, Jackson slowly discovers what put the sadness in Melanie's pretty brown eyes. Now it'll take all his faith -- and a hopeful five-year-old -- to show the city gal that she's already home.

My Review:

Charming debut Love Inspired contemporary romance.

This one ticks all the boxes -- compelling single-dad who embraces small-town values; an emotionally wounded heroine with conflicting big city plans and a sweet little girl who longs to see her family complete. There's enough here to touch the heart strings and raise a reader's ire. There were times when I just wanted to pinch some sense into Melanie! How is it possible to be sympathetic to a heroine while being spitting mad at her? Gah, that woman was frustrating at times. And there was Jackson, solid, dependable, patient. Oh, she got his dander up sometimes too but he seemed to handle things better than I did. :-) A sweet read to curl up with.

  9. I often find heroines that can be stubborn as mules but still have redeeming qualities that I can relate to. It just goes to show that we all have faults. Most of the time we don't see it in ourselves until we have a character like Melanie. Thanks, Kav.
