Nursing Second Chances Review and Giveaway

Nursing Second Chances is the debut book by Maggie Greene. From Amazon’s website.~
A Honey Creek Sweet Romance

Kiersten Hart left Honey Creek the minute she graduated high school and never looked back. When her sister Jeanine is widowed and left to raise two children alone, Kiersten moves back on a temporary basis. When Charles steps in and sweeps her off her feet, she has to decide if the wounds from her childhood can be mended.

After his wife died, Charles Webber swore he’d never love anyone again. He buried himself in his work and didn’t look up until he found out his son was sick. Moving to Honey Creek was supposed to make things easier. Kiersten does little to help keep things simple. Though he is taken with her, he soon realizes the casual relationship they agreed on is turning serious. As their expiration date approaches, Charles must decide if Kiersten is worth the risk.

I was asked to join the Nursing Second Chances blog tour and was really excited to do so after I read a bit about the story. I loved all types of romance novels and really love reading “second chance” stories. 

Kiersten Hart has put her own life on hold to move back to her hometown to help out her sister, who is recently widowed and left to raise two children alone. Kiersten had a bad experience in high school and never really wanted to return to her hometown for anything more than a short visit. Kiersten is only in town long enough to help get her sister back on track and then she is getting back to her life. However, she had no plans on meeting Charles Webber while she was home, or his son Jason.

I loved Charles so much. He changed his entire life to be there for his son. He was attracted to Kiersten from the moment he first met her, but since she had no plans to stay in town, she doesn’t want to admit she is also attracted to him. Charles and Kiersten were so great together. The only part of the story I didn’t love was Kiersten’s constant reminder that she would be leaving as soon as her sister was back on her feet. I wanted Kiersten to stay for both Charles and Jason, and didn’t want her to give up her possible future because of something that happened when she was in high school. It takes something major happening to both Jason and Charles to make Kiersten realize she will do whatever it takes to keep them in her life.

Nursing Second Chances was a great story and I look forward to reading more books in the future from Maggie Greene.
