Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

Solheim moves on from her debut Out of Bounds series, but not too far; this Second Chances series opener is set in the same town, Chances Inlet, N.C. Big enough to spawn several celebrities but small enough to be as catty as a high-school clique, it's the perfect setting for a stormy encounter between hunky native son Gavin McAlister, a wannabe TV star, and Ginger Walsh, a former ballerina struggling back to the dance world after a catastrophic injury. Since Ginger briefly played a soap opera villain, many of the townspeople don't trust her with Gavin; their inability to separate role from actress is a conceit that wears thin long before Solheim lets it go, but Ginger and Gavin also have their own, more solid reasons for not leaping into a relationship. This is a brisk and heartfelt read, and not weighed down with an excess of backstory. Agent: Melissa Jeglinski, Knight Agency. (Jan.) [Page ]. Copyright 2014 PWxyz LLC

Review by Publisher Summary 2

Chances Inlet, North Carolina, has an infamous power for second chances. But its charms are lost on the town’s favorite son—until she comes along… When his father’s sudden death puts his family’s construction business in serious debt, architect Gavin McAlister is forced to put his dream career in New York on hold. Making matters worse, his fiancée calls it quits. Desperate to return to his big-city life, he discovers an opportunity to save his family, one that has him reluctantly starring in a home restoration TV show. Former soap star Ginger Walsh hopes this job as a TV makeup artist will lead to better things. So far it’s only brought her to a hamlet full of people who don’t like her—except Gavin. After a wild night out leads to Ginger waking up in Gavin’s loft—and the rest of town talking—the two of them soon wonder if getting back to before is what they want. Because being in each other’s arms certainly feels like what they need…
