Thank you to St Martin’s Press for the review copy via NetGalley!
I’ve been on a bit of a cutesy book binge lately. From Sophie Kinsella to Josie Silver to Sally Thorne, I’ve been devouring rom-com books by the pound. When I saw the summary for this book on NetGalley, it was a no-brainer to me. It sounded right up my alley, a story of two exes finding each other a decade later with some fun complications. It’s a pretty by the books, told by many different novels, premise. Unfortunately, this book really did not come anywhere close to meeting my expectations.
Second Chance follows Ella, a successful matchmaker and former wannabe actress who does local theater gigs on the side. When her ex, Hank (who made it big in the acting business), shows up to film a movie in her city, she’s forced to confront her lingering feelings for him after a decade of separation.
