A Father's Second Chance
We all have pasts. Sometimes it becomes difficult to share those pasts with someone we have fallen in love with for fear that they will reject us if they know the truth. Even if God has already forgiven us, it can be hard to open up because what if we do and they simply chose to walk away? That is the decision that Celeste Thompson will have to face if she is honest with how she feels after vowing to never fall in love. After her own father abandoned her when she was little, between how her mother raised her, she was bound and determine to hold up her side of that agreement.
When she first moved to the small mountain community of Ouray, to reopen Granny's Kitchen, a restaurant her grandmother used to own, she had hoped that would be enough to keep her busy. Then came the possibility of adding 3 family suites above the restaurant if she can find someone to help renovate them in keeping with the feel of the restoration she wants. She isn't looking for a complete tear down and redo but more along the lines of restoring them to their former beauty but with more modern conveniences. She only hopes the contractor that she has been referred with be one willing to work with her.
Gage Purcell had hoped that a job would open up for him in the mining time of Ouray, that is the reason he decided to move back to town, along with finding a fresh start for him and his young daughters Emma and Cassidy. After all that time in school obtaining a degree in becoming a mining engineer he had hoped that would be a no brainer, but with no work possibilities on foreseeable horizon, he agrees to check out a restoration project for the new owner of Granny's Kitchen. What he discovers is that she appears to be exactly just like his ex-wife Tracy, who walked away from their family after the birth of their second child and never looked back. He has women like this all figured out, all business and only one thing in mind, their next business prospect. But it is possible he has it all wrong?
I received A Father's Second Chance by Mindy Obenhaus compliments of Harlequin Love Inspired Publishers and Christian Fiction Blog Alliance for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation, aside for a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This is such a heartwarming and quaint romance just perfect for this time of year. It's short enough to finish in a day but feels as if you have read a full length novel. Reminds me of the kinds of stories I wrote when I was much younger and ones I still very much enjoy today. This time with a country cook and a handsome handyman with two adorable daughters added to the mix, makes for a wonderful 4 out of 5 stars in my opinion.
