ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

A Word from the Author: To steal a line from Donny and Marie, I’m a little bit country, a little bit rock-n-roll. I’m trapped in the city, but prefer the country or the mountains.

I love Jesus, my family, and just about anything sweet.

I believe Jesus died for my sins, rose three days later, and will one day return. He has carried me through some of my darkest hours. Without faith in Him, I would be nowhere.

I have a penchant for chocolate, clothes, and shoes. When I’m not penning romance novels, I enjoy cooking, decorating and shopping.



ABOUT THE BOOK

Businesswoman Celeste Thompson has one goal: to make her restaurant and hotel a success. She doesn't need any distractions, even from handsome contractor Gage Purcell and his two adorable little girls. Besides, single dad Gage is just biding his time before a big job at the mines comes through. But as Celeste's project springs to life, their arguments transform into attraction. Gage isn't looking for romance, especially not with another career-driven woman like his ex-wife. But openhearted Celeste is more than just another work-consumed client. She might just be his happily-ever-after.

My Review:

Celeste Thompson only wants to run a successful restaurant and hopefully an equally successful hotel. But her mom has other ideas. Why not sell? Why not come back to Texas? And the questions go on and on. Celeste loves living in the little town of Ouray, it’s quite slow, and homey. Something her mother truly doesn’t understand nor appreciate. Rue Celeste would like more from life, like a husband, a couple kids, and maybe a pet. But that was not what she needed right now, she’s a businesswoman after all.

Gage Purcell lives to take care of his two beautiful little girls. His place in the world is in the mines but life is giving him a job as a contractor. Something, yes, he can do, but not something he wants to continue doing. With no wife to care for his girls, he knows it falls on his shoulders alone to care for them and keep them from getting hurt again, by another woman. When he meets Celeste, he believed her to be a head strong businesswoman like his ex-wife, but pushing her restaurant aside he finds she is extraordinary in everyway including helping him take care of his girls.

Just when Gage believes he can give Celeste his heart, something in her past stops him abruptly. Can he ever look past it and love her for who she is? Or will he loose out on any happiness a life with Celeste could give him?

A Father’s Second Chance is a wonderful novel full of love, healing, and a little bit of mischief. I loved ever aspect of this book. I had this book read in a matter of hours its so good. I hope everyone else can enjoy this book the same way I did. I love this author!
