Publisher’s Description:

She’s small-town.152095078

He’s big-league.

They broke up years ago…

But is it really over?

In the small town of Parker Falls, Jessica Parker spends her time serving pie and coming up with ideas to save the failing diner she inherited from her grandfather. A single mom to eight-year-old Wesley, she has enough to keep her busy well into the future.  But when her old high school love, Chase Taynor, unexpectedly pops up, Jess finds herself thinking not of the future but of her past with the handsome professional baseball player.

After a few bad pitches leave his dream career in limbo, Chase slides back home to Parker Falls…although the town may not be as safe as he’d expected. As Jess and Chase reconnect, old feelings return in a major-league way.

With the possibility that Chase could return to the baseball diamond at any time, will their reunion be worth the risk to their hearts? Or will it be déjà vu all over again, with Chase choosing the limelight over the woman he loved before the fame?

My Thoughts:

I loved this second chances book. It is both a second chance at love and dreams story that draws the reader in and never lets go.

Chase Taynor and Jessica Parker were high school sweethearts but Chase left to pursue his dream of playing major league baseball. Now after a disastrous 9th inning where he gave up the chance to win a world series he has come back home to wait to see if any baseball team will give him a second chance.

Jessica is busy trying to save her family’s failing diner which she inherited. Trying desperately to juggle the life of a single mom and the diner is all that is on her mind until Chase suddenly is back in her life.
Will this second chance at romance for Chase and Jessica win out in the end or will Chase’s second chance at his dream win?

This poignant and delightful Hallmark story is a must read.

I gave it 4.75 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development. I really liked most of the characters, especially those of Chase, Jessica and her eight year old son in this sweet/clean story of a developing second chance at romance story..

The heat level is zero in this book that was a 2017 Hallmark original movie.

I received a complimentary digital copy of this book from the publisher to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Publisher’s Description:

Once upon a long time ago, he broke her heart. Good thing she’s too smart to fall for him a second time…

Allie Grant doesn’t believe in second chances. She does, however, believe in the power of a permanent paycheck. So when a tipster reports that the soon-to-be demolished senior center in her hometown is haunted, Allie hightails it to Whispering Bay to get the scoop that could secure her dream job at Florida! magazine. What she finds, though, is far scarier than any ghost. Cue her ex-boyfriend, sexy construction foreman Tom Donalan.

When Tom catches Allie poking around his construction site, he quickly realizes his former high school flame is just as feisty as ever. And, heaven help him, her irresistible, mile-high legs still take his breath away. But Tom isn’t about to delay the building’s demolition because of a silly ghost story.

With neither of the stubborn exes backing down from their opposing positions, sparks fly. And, underneath the surface, the fire of their old attraction burns as hot as ever. When strange things start happening with increasing frequency around town, even a tough skeptic like Tom is tested. The question is, can Allie and Tom stop fighting long enough to get to the bottom of Whispering Bay’s ghost problem–and the more important matter of mending their broken hearts?
