Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Series: Love on Chance Avenue #2
Title: Miracle on Chance Avenue by Jane Porter
Author: Jane Porter
Publisher: Tule Publishing
Published: December 8th, 2017
This is a story of going home to face the past and look to the future. The couple concerned have friends in common but hadn’t previously spoken. Despite this, Sadie Mann has loved him since she was thirteen years old and he brought his sister, McKenna, to her birthday party. That was also the night his parents and other siblings were murdered . . . . Rory Douglas tried to escape Marietta by competing on the American Extreme Bull Riding Tour. Sadie used to go watch him ride, but never spoke or contacted him. After her mother’s untimely death, thirty-five year old Sadie has re-evaluated her life, decided to give up on waiting for Rory to reciprocate her love and is planning on becoming a single Mum, using a sperm donor for the father. That’s when Rory returns and the two meet. The attraction is mutual, the chemistry hot, can love find a way to bring them together?
This is an emotional roller coaster ride. Unusually, it also involves people from the less affluent area of Marietta. It is another lovely Marietta based festive read, the second in the series. Some of the characters, events and places appear in other, parallel stories and series but each can be read as a standalone – you don’t have to read any of the others to appreciate this one.
This story is a journey, acknowledging and coming to terms with the past, realising its impact on present behaviour and attitudes and learning to trust and hope to enable moving on to a future full of hope and love. I really enjoyed escaping into this story which proved to be a real page turner that I highly recommend to anyone who enjoys well crafted contemporary romance stories to read, in fact I highly recommend everything I’ve read by this talented author!
I requested and received a copy of this novel, via NetGalley. This is my honest review after choosing to read it.
Rory Douglas rarely returns to his home town of Marietta, choosing instead to unleash his demons competing on the American Extreme Bull Riding Tour. But after a particularly bruising season, Rory visits Marietta with the idea of buying an investment property and planning for a future he never imagined or wanted.
After ten years as a flight attendant, Sadie Mann has turned in her wings to focus on her shabby chic business and becoming a single mom. Adjusting to her new life is proving harder than she expected and the last thing she needs is unrequited love, Rory Douglas, home for the holidays. Everyone knows he avoids Marietta, Christmas, and settling down, so why is he back now?
Rory and Sadie have never had a chance, but maybe this Christmas will bring the miracle they’re looking for.
