Marriage has burned Perth-native Cassie Chambers twice, and having reached her mid-life years, Cassie is content to remain single and focus upon her blessings.

I really liked this book! I wasn’t at all sure if I was (for various reasons explained below, but mostly because I’m not a contemporary romance kinda girl), but soon after I started, I realized it was a unique one.

Some of the best parts were Chris (yes, he deserves his own part) and the themes, which ended up surprising me (even though I don’t 100% agree with all the author’s conclusions).

Cassie, the main character, took a while to grow on me. She ju

I gave this book 5 stars!!

I like that there are

Lisa Renee shows knowledge about a variety of topics - drug abuse, abusive parents, youth recovery, restaurant work, and divorce and remarriage. These topics are woven into an interesting novel set in Australia. I found the story to be very inspiring and enjoyable. For me the underlying theme of the story is that we can all have redemption from our past if we just make God a part of our present and future. God is a god of second chances. While I was able to guess the ultimate outcome of Cassie a ...more
