    Every woman should read this book.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you..... for writing Caroline's story. I was touched by her plight from the moment she entered the scene in the first book. She was so strong, yet broken. And Josh--he is the creamiest marshmallow, yummy guy. Patience should be his name. It is a wonder they both didn't weigh an extra person or so with all his baking. Yep, she suffered in the war, she didn't loose a limb, or suffer a bullet wound, but her pain was on-going with limited chance of healing . Because of her situation, she did something she would never have done--always wanting to become a marine--now she left without leave. Josh wasn't the only one wanting her, the law did as well. What will it take to get her life back? After a year, will Josh's patient, persistence break through? Will she be able to watch another woman suffer as she did and not do anything? Read the story of the brave woman and the man who helped her move on. See what true love will bring a man to do. Watch the woman the country should have been honoring, instead, they deserted her when she had to fight a much closer enemy. Every woman should read this book and make sure you support those women like Caroline. Thank you, Sara Jane Stone. I was provided an ARC for an honest review.

    Clever man!!!

    4.5 Stars This is book 3 in the Second Shot series and it features Josh Summers and Caroline Andrews. Josh has to be the sweetest, most patient man I've ever known and is a gorgeous ginger! Caroline's been through a lot and it's not over yet, so he's giving her time. His way of doing that is baking her pies and taking them to her so they can spend time together while they eat pie. Clever man! Fantastic story line with amazing, well developed characters. I am definitely looking forward to more books in this series.

    A must read series

    I've loved this series since the beginning, the circle of friends, the romance, the small town atmosphere have been very alluring, with the tales mixed with love, passion, a little danger, some heartbreak, and lots of humor. I knew that if and when Caroline and Josh got their own story, it would be emotional. And it was, touching and heartbreaking. Yet the story was so brilliantly mixed with humor - that bright and sunny outlook Josh has on life that was infectious - it didn't leave much room for angst, desperation, and hopelessness that Caroline could have rightfully been feeling. Instead, Josh helped her find herself again, helped her heal, and move forward with her life. I absolutely adored Caroline and Josh together, the dry humor, play with words, the passion they had for each other, and the desserts they shared. Josh was just perfect for her, his tenderness and sensitivity towards her past, her life situation, his patience, his devotion to her, protectiveness, and willingness to fight for her, for them and their future, and against the system that had put her in the situation she was in, just left me charmed and wanting to cheer for them. The betrayal and humiliation Caroline had to suffer for her willingness to serve her country were unthinkable, the consequences of the events hard to understand, the injustice infuriating. But the sensitive matter was delicately handled in the story, with respect towards the victim and hope for the healing. I inhaled this story, avidly hanging on each moment. I wanted to savor it, enjoy every word, and at the same time, I was eager for Caroline to find peace of mind, for Josh and her to have a chance. Every emotion was involved as I read the book, there were chuckles and smiles, adoration, anger towards the system, fear of surviving, and at the lowest point, there were tears (or more like sobbing). It might have been an emotional roll-a-coaster, but it was worth each and every bump on the road, that Josh and Caroline had to suffer on their way towards their future. The story left me elated and exhilarated, eagerly waiting for more: A must-read series for me ~ Five Spoons

    A Second Shot Novel

    As posted on The Smutty Kitty reviewed by KittyKelly 4 out of 5 Licks I am so excited this book is finally here!! I've been dying for Josh's story since his accident in the Independence Falls series. I fell in love with him and couldn't wait for his story. I was super sad when Sara completed the IF series and his story wasn't told, but then he popped up in the Second Shot series and I had everything crossed. Josh is seriously the most patient character I think I've ever read about. Most of the heroes you read about these days are alpha males or just plane a** hats, but not Josh. While everyone else is walking on eggshells around Caroline he treats her like a regular old human without pushing her boundaries. Caroline is running from her past and terrified she will be caught and punished for going AWOL. She is scared to move forward, but Josh knows he can be the one to bring her forward and help her. I couldn't imagine how Sara was going to get around the AWOL issue. Turns out she doesn't try to skirt it, Caroline winds up turning herself in and Josh does everything he can to free her. I really enjoyed watching Caroline move forward and seeing Josh help her along the way. As always I really enjoyed what Sara brought to the table and I can't wait to read more from her.
