Review: Second Chance in Dry Creek by Janet Tronstad

  •          Second Chance in Dry Creek by Janet Tronstad
  •          Love Inspired ~ September 18, 2012
  •          ISBN-10: 0373877692
  •          ( 4th book in the "Return to Dry Creek" series )

Her neighbors in Dry Creek, Montana, think Gracie Stone is rebuilding her life just fine on the family ranch. But Calen Gray knows better. Foreman of nearby Elkton Ranch, Calen has been sweet on Gracie half their lives. But harrowing circumstances kept them apart—and sent Gracie away. Now she's back, barely holding her head up, and refusing to believe she has a second chance at happiness. With faith, love and the gentle airing of long-held secrets, Calen just might find a way to bring back her smile—forever.

  The first three books in this series each feature a different son from this family, while this book features on Gracie, their Mom. 
Gracie has known Calen many years, and they have always been friends. Though, recently she has had a hard time trusting again..so she is not sure if she is ready for a romantic relationship. 

When Calen's daughter Renee, gets involved with a robbery and comes to Gracie's home for help,..Gracie begins to understand that she can trust again, as she helps Calen thru this difficult time.

With warm characters and a welcoming community, Gracie learns how to find the "Second Chance" in love.

**There is one more book in the "Return to Dry Creek" series, coming out later this year.
