A Father's Second Chance

(Love Inspired - July 21, 2015)


Mindy Obenhaus


A Word from the Author: To steal a line from Donny and Marie, I’m a little bit country, a little bit rock-n-roll. I’m trapped in the city, but prefer the country or the mountains.

I love Jesus, my family, and just about anything sweet.

I believe Jesus died for my sins, rose three days later, and will one day return. He has carried me through some of my darkest hours. Without faith in Him, I would be nowhere.

I have a penchant for chocolate, clothes, and shoes. When I’m not penning romance novels, I enjoy cooking, decorating and shopping.


Businesswoman Celeste Thompson has one goal: to make her restaurant and hotel a success. She doesn't need any distractions, even from handsome contractor Gage Purcell and his two adorable little girls. Besides, single dad Gage is just biding his time before a big job at the mines comes through. But as Celeste's project springs to life, their arguments transform into attraction. Gage isn't looking for romance, especially not with another career-driven woman like his ex-wife. But openhearted Celeste is more than just another work-consumed client. She might just be his happily-ever-after.

My thoughts:

A great book set in a lovely little town where most anyone would feel right at home. An engaging story line with well-developed characters who go through things that any of us might experience - broken familial relationships that make us hold others who want to be close at arms-length. A story full of hope, where we find if we lean on God - especially through hard times - He will show Himself faithful and can bring healing in ways we least expect it.

I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more from this author.

My sincerest thanks to author Mindy Obenhaus for generously providing a copy for my honest review.
