Second Chance Grill by Christine Nolfi

Liberty Book 2

This is the Prequel to Treasure Me.

When Dr Mary Chance inherits a restaurant from her late aunt, she travels from Cincinnati to Liberty, to relaunch and reopen the restaurant naming it The Second Chance Grill. The gift of inheriting the restaurant had just come along at the right time for Mary, it had given her a chance to get away and reflect on her life, after the tragic loss of her dear friend Sadie. Sadie also a doctor and Mary had been planning to take over Sadie’s fathers practice when he retired, but now with Sadie’s death, Mary now faced the fact that she would be running the practice alone. Once she got the restaurant up and running she planned to go back to Cincinnati and return to her life.

Along with inheriting the restaurant Mary also finds she has inherited the people who work at the restaurant, who are an interesting and lively bunch of characters. She also makes friends with eleven year old Blossom, who is always hanging around the restaurant asking for a job. When Mary meets Blossom’s single dad Anthony there is an attraction between them, but Mary knows she will not be staying long in town and Anthony knows that he needs to tread carefully when it comes to relationships, as he has to consider what is best for his daughter Blossom. So they become friends despite the mutual attraction. Both Mary and Anthony have been through difficult times. Will they too get a Second Chance?

If you are looking for a good read, then I really recommend this book, I found the story really moving and it is written so brilliantly that you become so involved in the story it is almost like you are actually sitting in the restaurant listening and watching over what is going on.  I really hope that there will be more books about the lovely people in the community of the town of Liberty.

Christine Nolfi owned a small public relations firm in Cleveland, Ohio. She closed the firm after she travelled to the Philippines and adopted four children. She has been writing novels fulltime since 2004
