Another chance at love for these two individuals.
Cassie and Chris were a delight to read about. Cassie’s heart for the youth and her desire to help them navigate through life so they don’t make mistakes they’d regret was an admirable one. I love that she was willing to use her experiences to mentor the people around her and though she had been hurt and was wary of men, she didn’t have an unhealthy outlook for relationships but instead was cautious about stepping into one not wanting to make the same mistakes again. I also love how she was honest with Chris about her past once she realised there was more to their relationship than friendship.
I love how Chris gently but consistently pursued her, sure she was God’s choice for him. I also admired his heart and his teachable spirit. He was willing to take corrections and open to suggestions always ready to help out.
I also enjoyed the topics dealt with in the book from abuse to adoption
Overall this was a wonderful book on the fact that despite how we’ve lived or what we have done, God is genuinely interested in each of us.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author via Celebrate Lit for a blog tour. All opinions expressed are solely mine.

What inspired you to start writing?I’ve read many wonderful Christian novels of first-time love. Unfortunately, not all of us have experienced a strong lasting marriage. I’ve met many women who’ve had a husband turn away from their Christian faith and left the marriage. I want to encourage those women that God can restore what was lost with a faithful man.My message is not to rush ahead of God’s timing. My characters are more cautious since they know life can throw unexpected blows. They learn to trust and open their hearts again, which takes time.My first series tackles the central issue of divorce. More Than A Second Chance also addresses the challenges of infertility and grief. The story is wrapped around a new romance with plenty of humor and light-hearted moments to balance out the themes.
