Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Here’s some info on this awesome book!
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 Thoughts(4/5 Stars)
When I heard about this book, I was quite excited. I’ve heard about stuff like this happening and always thought it would make an interesting book if only the right author would write it. Miss James was definitely the right author! 
I loved ALL the characters, not just Sullivan and. To be honest, I loved the feel of the townm as well. This book is classified as contemporary romance but I feel like it could be read and loved by many in and outside of its genre. One thing I really liked was the way the book portrayed that in their own ways, both of Sullivan and Jess are pretty hard workers, and they don’t really just get things handed to them. Maybe it’s just because I live a small town life so I’m sometimes picky about small town books, but I really felt like the author did her research and put her own emotion into the story which really made it for me. So, in all I would definitely recommend you, at risk of sounding cheesy, take a chance on A Chance at Love. I really look forward to reading more from this author. She has that way of writing that just puts you in the book, and makes you not want to put it down til the last page has been read. 
Although I received this book for review from the author for this blog tour, this in no way affected my thoughts expressed in this review.

    • Thanks Val, I’m usually not either but I gave this one a chance because I love when books are in a small town!

      Thank you! I will get to work on getting everything together for it. I’d never heard of the Liebster Award but it sounds very exciting! 🙂
