I did not finish this book. It was so, but the reason for my not finishing was I didn't like Jo. She was selfish and has this idea of what perfect looks like. Instead of having compassion for Mateo, she wants him to go into the system so Luke can focus on more important things... her? Luke was an upstanding guy and deserved better.

I received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.

'You sometimes have a tendency to expect the worst of people, and when you do that, they're sure to give you the worst.'

I am a Deborah Raney fan. I still have my original copy of her very first book. Deborah Raney writes about real life issues. From her heart. The reader feels this. Her books are not fluffy 'happily ever after' books, although we do get a happy ever after ending. But we get heartache and struggle and finding your way back in between.

This is the second in her Chandle

The next chapter in the busy lives of the Chandler sisters, continuing on from book one, Reason to Breathe, includes some drama and a new romance. I enjoyed catching up with these three sisters, whose relationship is supportive and fun loving.
Joanna or 'Jo' seems to bear the load of responsibility for their fledgling Air bnb venture, while working out the details for her sister's wedding. It wasn't too hard to identify with her need to find her own happy ending, one that doesn't involve a sur

I love Deb Raney's books because she delves into the heart of life. Her books are not cheesy romance, instead her characters dig deep and deal with real struggles as they find the desire of their heart. In Chasing Dreams, Jo, the main character, lays out her feelings and fears. She's honest with herself, which brings her great angst. Luke is a sweetheart who has dedicated himself to Mateo. He's a gentleman who wants to draw Jo into his life, yet hesitates because he cares so much. As always, Deb ...more

This book is part of a series and is the second book. I have not read the first one but look forward to reading. Deborah Raney impresses me with her writings as they deal with real-life struggles and you relate to the characters. Jo Chandler and her sisters have bought cottages in Cape with the inheritance their mother leaves them after her death. Jo meets Luke who is guardian to Mateo after his mother dies from cancer. Jo is unsure if she is ready for a teenager and has to think and pray about ...more
