About Summer of Second Chances
Publisher : Independently published (June 10, 2020)
Paperback : 386 pages
The blossom of first love meets the golden ember of last love in this heartwarming novel of hope and second chances.
Shelby, at sweet sixteen, finds herself without friends, a place to call home, and still waiting for her first kiss. At the mercy of yet another move, she’s left to spend the summer with her grandmother at Moonwater Lake. Theo, a widowed, elderly man in town suggests she start a dog-walking business. Sometimes all it takes is one bright idea and an abundance of dogs to bond two unlikely friends and show them that dreams can still come true.
Theo is grieving the precious memories of his fifty-year marriage. If not for his aging beagle, Wally, he wouldn’t have a reason to get out of bed in the morning, much less go for walks. Theo is pleasantly surprised by his awakened feelings of hope, after crossing paths with Shelby and her grandmother.
It’s turning out to be a summer of many things; a summer of healing and starting over. A summer of friendship and unconditional love that will remind Shelby, Theo, and the town of Moonwater Lake that it’s never too late for second chances.
Andrea Hurst weaves a sweet story of how love rescues us all in her latest book, Summer of Second Chances. Readers will be charmed by Shelby and Logan, Alice and Theo, and all the wonderful people, dogs, and yummy food descriptions found in these pages.
