Second Chances

Jack and Gillian

Judy Bagshaw gives her readers a fun and sweet tale about revival, restoration and renewal. It is no secret that I love my heroines to be curvy girls and when those lush ladies get the men they deserve, the men of their dreams I love them even more. Gillian Faraday is a spoiled and selfish individual at the beginning of this tale. She is not a bad person but she is far from a good person. Circumstances force her hand and change her life beyond her control and I was fascinated with her actions and reactions. Jack McLaren is the type of hero fairy tales are made of and while he could have come across as cheesy he was so genuine and his character so honorable and sincere. His deep affection for his niece and nephew as well as his understanding of his brother's situation made him a keeper in my eyes. The fact that he was rich through his own hard work and dedication just added to the shine on his armor. The secondary characters in this story were so enjoyable a few of whom I would love to see make appearances in upcoming books. Over all I found this to be a wonderful fresh take on a tried and true premise and I know I will enjoy reading this one over again.

Gillian Faraday has lost everything after the death of her father and she needs a job fast. Jack McLaren has the perfect solution for Gillian's situation and it will help solve his need for a nanny for his adolescent twin niece and nephew. It seems like the perfect solution except Gillian cannot forgive Jack for being the creditor who now owns her father's company. Can they come to an understanding and will they both discover that everyone deserves a second chance?
