Second Time Around – Erin Kaye

 

 

 The path of true love never did run smooth…

A heart-warming tale of love in the face of family and friendship, perfect for fans of Cathy Kelly and Maeve Binchy.

Divorcee Jennifer Irwin has it all – a successful interior design business and two loving children. But as her 45th birthday approaches and her children prepare to start their own lives, Jennifer is left feeling lonely in her empty nest.

That’s when she meets Ben Crawford – a man 16 years her junior – as their attraction heightens, Jennifer realises what she’s been missing. But mindful that the small-town Ballyfergus residents would never approve, they conduct their affair in secret.

But a secret is never a secret for long…

As the affair surfaces, Jennifer encounters opposition from friends and family, especially her daughter Lucy. Enraged by her mother’s relationship, Lucy seeks comfort in the arms of charismatic but troubled, Oren. Jennifer knows that Oren is not the man he seems, but can she convince her daughter of that?

And with everything going against them, can Jennifer and Ben’s love survive? Or will she risk losing her daughter to be with the man she loves?

An enjoyable read which was predictable in places but had a unique twist to the story.  I loved the setting.  Having never been to Ireland, I seem to have a small infatuation with this country.  It’s well written, which was easy to read right from the beginning.  I loved the couger story as well as Lucy’s.  It’s refreshing to read the traditional chick lit storey line with a modern twist.  But really it’s not a book I’ll rave about.  I enjoyed it, but it was just a good book really.  Good enough to read on holiday, or whilst relaxing after a hard day at work.

I’m rating this as a good read.  My next book is The Love of My Life by Louise Douglas
