Book Club Mom 5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely small-town romance!June 22, 2018 Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase Sometimes you need a feel-good book, a story in which realistic characters face many challenges, but are able to overcome them through love and faith. That’s what you get in Second Chance Romance by Jill Weatherholt, a wonderful inspirational romance that promises just what the title suggests. Jackson Daughtry doesn’t know what to think when a young, and very attractive, career-driven divorce lawyer arrives in Sweet Gum, Virginia. Melanie Harper is there to convince her Aunt Phoebe to move to Washington, D.C. because she is sure that Phoebe, her only relative, cannot manage on her own. But it may be that Melanie is the one in need, for despite a successful career and head-turning looks, Melanie lives in a shadow of sadness. Add to the fact that Jackson, a handsome paramedic and single dad, shares ownership with Phoebe of Sweet Gum’s local café. They need each other. And Phoebe may not be a blood relative, but she’s definitely family to Jackson. This charming small town is where Phoebe belongs, and he’s about lock horns with Melanie on the subject. As the story unfolds, readers learn more about Melanie’s mysterious past and why she is so entrenched in her career. In addition, Jackson’s back story explains why his little girl, Rebecca, has no mother in the picture. Could Melanie fill that void? This isn’t just a love story, however. Weatherholt tackles important issues such as how to deal with loss and questions of faith. She presents a serious conflict and shows how her characters cope, using humor and keen insight into human behavior. Readers will need to read till the end to see how Weatherholt resolves the strong attraction and tension between Jackson and Melanie, which is also threatened by outside developments. I very much enjoyed reading Second Chance Romance, and especially liked the small-town setting in which friends and neighbors look out for each other. I recommend this lovely romance to readers who like to see the good guys win.

Kourtney Heintz 5.0 out of 5 stars Clean Read +Sweet Romance + Small Town CharmMarch 27, 2017 Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase This story would make for a great Hallmark movie. It's sweet and charming and has a lovable cast of characters. Melanie and Jackson are a couple you root for. The title of the book is perfect for the story arc and no characters deserve a second chance at romance more than these two do. This was a quick read and sure to delight fans of feel good romances with a Christian touch.

Marian Beaman 5.0 out of 5 stars Great debut novel, faith inspiredMarch 11, 2017 Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase “A large gray cumulus cloud took the sun hostage.” 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.

Jackson Daughtry's jobs as 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.
