REVIEW – Second Chances by Connie Stephany

What a charming novel! It was sweet and held more depth than I realized. The writing was superb, and there wasn’t a point in the whole story that slowed down unnecessary. We meet the main character, Abby, who is a loving, generous woman madly in love with the man she is about to marry, Adam.…
