Second Chance Girl by Susan Mallery–Book Review–

second chance girl:850.jpg

Don’t Miss This Captivating Love Story, Filled With Witty Dialogue & Sweet Romance!

Release Date–Sept. 26, 2017

 

Second Chance Girl is a delightful and entertaining romance.
The Duke of Somerbrooke was concerned over valuables that were missing from his estate. And the only packages that were leaving his home were addressed to an American, Violet Lund, in his grandmother’s handwriting. Ulrich Sherwood was livid. Violet Lund was a conniving thief who was manipulating his grandmother. The Duke would see justice done, even if that meant, that he had to travel thousands of miles to do so.

Violet Lund, couldn’t believe when the man of her dreams, Ulrich Sherwood, the Duke of Somerbrooke, walked into her shop. The last time she saw him, she was all frizzy hair and braces; and he had made her feel beautiful. He was a gorgeous man; except, for the fiery blue daggers that were aimed right at her. What could she possibly have done?

Carol Lund loved her work at the Animal Preserve. She also had a hidden crush on her next door neighbor, Mathias Mitchell. They were only friends though. She wasn’t anything special, and he was a well-known artist. Besides, Mathias didn’t do relationships; he was a no commitment, one-night romance type of guy. And, although, he could never be hers, she sometimes imagined that he was.

Mathias secretly adored his giraffe loving next door neighbor, Carol Lund. If he were to trust any woman, it would be her. But, Mathias learned from a young age that love often led to betrayal and pain. So Mathias would admire Carol from the sidelines. Little did he know, though, that events in his life were going to drive him right into Carol’s arms.

Second Chance Girl is a well-written light read, filled with witty dialogue and sweet romance. Thank you, Harlequin and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Don’t Miss Susan Mallery’s Newest Romance, Coming 8/22/17!

 

Love shouldn’t be conditional, but it often is. Pallas was taught from childhood, that love was only given, when earned. So, she spent a lifetime trying unsuccessfully to gain her mother’s love and approval. In her mother’s eyes, Pallas’s business, Wedding In A Box, was just another failure. And, to be honest, Pallas was toying with the idea of selling it. But, that was before Nick Mitchell showed up in her life. Nick encouraged and assisted Pallas to develop her creativity. Although Nick and Pallas became close, he made it clear that when he left, in a couple of months, their relationship would end. Pallas’s biggest challenge, she feared, would be, keeping her heart from being crushed.

Nick Mitchell loved creating beautiful sculptures. He would finger a piece of wood until his intuition told him what to create. If he listened, the wood in his hand would become, a prized piece of art. Nick’s artistic talent came from his father; his selfish, world renowned, famous father. And the last thing Nick wanted, was to become like him. His father put his artistic passion above everybody and everything else and Nick; unfortunately, felt himself becoming like his father. Nick decided the best thing for him to do was to guard against falling in love, at all costs. He just hoped that it wasn’t already too late for him.

I found You Say It First, to be a beautiful, uplifting, and well-told story. Thank you, Harlequin and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy! I loved it.

Secrets of the Tulip Sisters by Susan Mallery

Don’t Miss This 5-Star Captivating New Release by Susan Mallery
Coming July 11, 2017–I loved it!

Kelly and Olivia were strangers to each other, even though they were sisters and had once been very close. Coming from a dysfunctional home and forced to live apart for years had scarred them.

Kelly was speechless when Olivia unexpectedly showed up at their father’s home. Her sister was stunning. Kelly hadn’t seen Olivia for thirteen years. And, unlike her chic, stylish sister, Kelly lived in boots, jeans, and tee shirts. Kelly loved working as a farmer, but standing next to Olivia, made her cringe and feel like a country bumpkin. Olivia and Kelly, however, were both hiding something from the other. They were also aware that to enjoy the sisterly bond that they once had, they’d have to confess their secrets, risk hurting one another, and hope that their relationship survived.

Secrets of the Tulip Sisters is about relationships, love, and forgiveness. There are several complicated love stories within this book. Although the book touches on some dark subjects, it is not at all depressing. Susan Mallery, peppers her writing, with a lot of humor making the story thoroughly enjoyable. I found this book to be well-written, compelling and thought-provoking. Susan Mallery is one of my favorite authors, and now, I can’t wait for her next new release.

Thank you, Harlequin Publishing and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.

Newest Release by Susan Mallery

A Million Little Things

Don’t Miss This Captivating and Heartwarming Romantic Fictional Story.

 

Pam, a fifty-something-year-old widow, was kicking herself after setting up her son with her daughter’s best friend, Zoe. Zoe, Pam discovered had a major complication in her life, and now Pam was afraid that her son Steven would become hurt because of it. Pam tried without success to break up her son’s relationship with Zoe. She was appalled that Steven, could choose Zoe over his own mother. If Pam were honest, though, she would have to admit that since her husband died, she had become a bit controlling. Pam was also at her wit’s end regarding her daughter, Jen. Jen was obsessed with her toddler’s welfare. She was convinced that there was something wrong with him. And since Pam couldn’t seem to keep her thoughts to herself regarding the lives of her children, Steven and Jen, stopped talking to her.

A Million Little Things has several perfectly interwoven plots. People are not always whom they first appear to be; sometimes they are even better. Jen found this out, first hand, when the man she had secretly despised, saved her husband’s life, and in actuality, her own as well. Lucas was a straightforward type of guy and told Jen without any sugar-coating, that she needed help. In the end, Jen was glad that he did. Zoe was re-inventing herself after wasting five years of her life on a good-for-nothing boyfriend. She was determined not to allow another person to control her life, and that included, Steven’s mother, Pam. Pam had some hard lessons to learn, one of them involved, moving on, and letting herself enjoy the company of another man, a man whom she had become quite fond of, Zoe’s father, Miguel.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this well-written book. It’s thought-provoking, compelling, and humorous.

Many thanks to the publisher, and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy. I loved it.
