 Is always possible!

Abby’s Second Chance, Book 2 of “The Preacher’s Daughters” series by Lyn Cote

Contemporary Christian Romance

Their chance at first love slipped through their fingers—now a second chance, will they let their attraction grow to true love? 

Abby Kirkland, a successful fundraiser for a big city botanical garden, faces a life-changing decision. In order to make the right choice, she visits her beloved great aunt in Florida. Will she have to upend her life? Then unexpectedly she crosses paths with Dr. Marco De Palma. She knew him at university in Florida, almost a decade ago.

Marco never thought to meet Abby again. Even though now he is a MD, the chances of a lady like her falling in love with the son of immigrants from Santa Domingo still looks impossible to him. And besides, he has a goal he must achieve for the good of many and that needs all his attention. No time for love.

Yet as they work together on a charity project, they can't deny the re-igniting of their connection. Will old insecurities and mistaken perceptions keep them apart again? Or will they finally believe that they too have a right to a second chance at love?

What happens when a “thinker” and a “live wire” collide? Sparks? Or a 5-alarm fire? 

Late-May sunshine gilded the weathered wood fence around the farmyard. Lucy Hansen leaned against the railing on the wide front porch of the white-frame farmhouse. She wished she’d had time to linger over coffee this morning. But this wasn’t a pleasure visit to Pleasant Prairie, Iowa.

Three days ago, her cousin Sophie had called in tears over her husband’s continued hospital stay. So Lucy had promised she’d come as soon as she could pack. At that time, Lucy hadn’t yet taken in just how deep Sophie’s troubles were. Now, three days later, she realized that her cousin’s problems might keep Lucy at the farm longer than she’d expected—or wanted. She felt both sorry for her cousin and guilty over feeling selfish. But she had problems, too.

Lucy worried her lower lip. I’m almost broke. I’ve got to be looking for a summer job and a full-time job for the fall. Lord, You’re going to have to help me out here.

Sophie stood near Lucy, holding her baby daughter on her hip. The girl’s dark curls and olive skin matched her pretty mother’s.

A riff of heavy-metal music blasted from an open second-story window. Ordinarily, the sound wouldn’t have bothered Lucy, fresh from four years in a college dorm. But one glance told her that the raucous sound was upsetting Sophie. And her cousin didn’t need any more upsetting right now.

Sophie looked so forlorn, Lucy’s mood lowered even further. Should she offer to go along with her to the hospital?

“Lucy!” one of Sophie’s little boys called to her.

Sophie’s young sons already hung on to and twisted themselves around the door handles of Lucy’s battered old car. The longing in their expressions tugged at Lucy’s heart. The little guys couldn’t wait for Lucy’s promised treat of a trip to the town park, to be followed by Dairy Queen hamburgers, fries and cones.

Sophie forced a tiny smile. “Don’t worry about me, Lucy.”

The heavy-metal music overhead boomed a decibel louder, drowning out Sophie. Exasperated, Lucy looked upward. What was with Zoë, anyway?

Zoë was Sophie’s teenaged sister-in-law who’d been living with Sophie and her husband since the death of her parents. Yesterday Lucy had noted the drastic change in the teen from a year ago. Zoë’s lowcut, hip-hugging jeans and exposed navel hadn’t bothered Lucy. The desperate unhappiness in Zoë’s eyes had.

Shaking her head, Sophie leaned close to Lucy’s ear. “I don’t know what I would have done if you couldn’t have come for the summer.”

The summer? I came for the summer? Lucy swallowed this with some difficulty. When did I volunteer to stay the whole summer? She hadn’t even guessed that Sophie had assumed she’d stay for the entire summer. I’m broke! I have to find a job.

Another glance at Sophie’s worry-ravaged face made Lucy postpone mentioning this. Sophie was family and family came first. Lucy would have to figure out some way to both help Sophie and find a job. But how?
