Book Review: Emily's Chance

Emily's Chance: A Novel (The Callahans of Texas)

Emily's Chance, by Sharon Gillenwater

Emily Rose is a rich girl with a big education and parents who expect nothing short of great success from her.  Having parents in high society leaves Emily feeling a bit lacking, her father is a big shot plastic surgeon and her mom is in the fashion industry, not only that, but she's beautiful as well.

Emily Rose hopes to some day be a curator at a museum, History is the love of her life, when working to start a Historical Museum in Callahan's Crossing Emily's path crosses that of Chance Callahan, the town's sexy bachelor, one who tends to go out on one or two dates and drop his women like flies, until he meets Emily.

As the town struggles to overcome their losses from a big fire, Emily struggles coming to terms with her past, can she ever forgive her father for what he has done to her, can she once again become close to her mom?  Emily learns quite a bit and becomes closer to God while staying as a guest at the Callahan's ranch.  When she interviews for a position at a new museum in Dallas she wants nothing more than to be offered the position.  Will Emily finally have her chance, or will Chance finally have Emily?

Loved this book, I have visited Texas several times and never grow tired of reading about it!  The characters, twang, and story fit right in with the Texas I know, and the characters were every day people with hurts, struggles and compassion.


**Thanks to Revell I received a complimentary copy of this book to review.
