A Chance at Love - Karolyn James

3 Stars

ABOUT THE BOOK -
A simple phone call can change your life... just ask successful businessman Sullivan Chasen. 

When the caller shares the news that Sullivan's father is dying, Sullivan laughs and hangs up.  He isn't being heartless, he just knows that it can't be true - because his father already passed away... ten years ago.

Like a bad dream, the calls keep coming and DNA results turn Sullivan's world upside down.  There is only one way, and very little time, to figure out the truth.  He packs his bags for the small town of Ferry Creek, North Carolina.

Once Sullivan arrives, he must confront a past he never knew existed, including a half-brother who lives above their family diner.  The longer he spends away from his wealthy lifestyle and successful business, the more he falls in love with the small town, its community... and waitress, Jess Winthorne.

Can Sullivan Chasen go back to his normal life after learning about his past or will he discover the missing piece of his heart in Ferry Creek?

MY REVIEW - 
I had very mixed feelings about this book. On the one hand (my left hand) I really liked the main plot of the story -man doesn't know he has a brother thinks his father is dead - finds out he has both and alive! He goes to this quaint small town and his life is changed forever ... oh! and he falls in love with the local diner chick.

On the other hand (my right hand), this book kept flip flopping through all kinds of different mini plots.  I wasn't sure what was important and what was just fluff. I ended skimming through a lot of it and only seriously reading the main plot parts. Which I did enjoy. I think if it had stuck more to the main plot I would have enjoyed it more.

So my left hand and my right hand were arm wrestling over if they liked this book or not. My left hand beat the right, but only by a hair. This was an OK, enjoyable enough read for me.

Thank you "Reading Addiction Blog Tours" for sending me this e-book to read and review!

  2. I lose interest when books flop around like that. Hope your next read is better.
