  • Beautifully Written

    A very observant and quite touching novel about three women, their lives, families and friendships. Charlie is a single mother doing her best to get by - and not managing it at all. Suzie is desperate for children, but she and her husband have fertility issues. Dawn is fast approaching the big 5-0 and desperately wants to bring some zing back into her marriage; so far she's not reaching that goal. Three women who all need a fairy godmother .. or are there other answers to their problems out there? This is an all-encompassing novel; the kind of book - and I may just be talking from experience here - that you take to bed assuming you'll just read a little bit and before you know it you're hooked! Beautifully written, and completely engrossing; a lovely story about hopes and dreams and the different ways to accomplish them. Three completely different women whose lives become entangled and we are privy to their thoughts and fears. Cleverly structured, I felt like a fourth invisible friend - in on all the secrets! There are a few unexpected events along the way, adding to the story and keeping the reader on their toes. A thoroughly entertaining and worthwhile read, and definitely worth a full five stars.

  • A fun summer read

    A Year of Second Chances is the story of three women who come together to support one another through the challenges that life sometimes brings us. Charlie is a single mother who has given her son all that she can, despite financial difficulties. Suzie has achieved success in the business world, but would trade it all for the chance to have a baby of her own. After years of trying, she determines it's time to take responsibility to ensure this dream will come true. Dawn is about to turn 50 and feels that all the joy in her life has been taken away. She needs to make her life more exciting. The year to come is sure to bring about a lot of changes to each of these women. I enjoyed the humour in this book and the relationships which developed between the women. Despite these beneficial relationships, Kendra Smith also shows a negative, competitive nature to female relationships which I'm sure that most women have experienced at some point in their lives. . I loved the character of Ramone (and his special brownies) and wish that everyone could have a Ramone in their life when needed. Thanks to Netgalley and Aria publishing for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.

  • A year of second chances.

    Very funny in some places. Annoying in other. Not likely to explore other books by this author.
