HIS SECOND-CHANCE FAMILY
Living in Brambleberry House is a dream widowed teacher Julia Blair has cherished for years, and sharing it with her two young children makes the experience doubly special. Having carpenter Will Garrett nearby is another reminder of the past -- he was Julia's first love. The loss of his wife and daughter have left Will closed off emotionally, and though he's clearly not indifferent to Julia, or her kids, he's just not ready to move on. RaeAnne Thayne continues the Women of Brambleberry House miniseries with His Second-Chance Family (4.5). Well-developed characters, plus plenty of raw emotion -- and humor -- add up to one of the author's finest books.
