    Really 3.5 stars. This is more of a short story than a novel. I like the premise of the plot line - the woman whose husband is so cruel to her that even when he's gone he's bent on her destruction. I liked Tanner, a lot. I felt sorry for Shannon when bad things kept happening to her. However, it being a short story, some of the plot felt a little too pat. I needed to feel more pull of good and evil and less like "it will all work out". I also needed more of a love story and less of two people ha Really 3.5 stars.

I needed to feel more pull of good and evil and less like "it will all work out". I also needed more of a love story and less of two people having sex, especially since hers seemed to be on the rebound. All of that said, it was worth reading, and I did want to know what happened. I'm glad for the happy ending, though I get tired of every man in a romance novel getting down on one knee.

    Shannon Harris and her 18-year-old daughter are starting over after the death of Shannon's mentally abusive, all-controlling louse of a husband and father dies. Not only does he leave Shannon destitute while providing a trust fund and paid for college education for their daughter he takes away their family home as well, instructing his lawyer to have her move to a remote horse farm a few hours away from Atlanta.

Not only does he leave Shannon destitute while providing a trust fund and paid for college education for their daughter he takes away their family home as well, instructing his lawyer to have her move to a remote horse farm a few hours away from Atlanta. Shannon is shell shocked to say the least and bitter from her life spent under the thumb of a man who never once treated her with kindness or affection their entire marriage. He even went so far as to flaunt all his affairs in her face in very graphic fashion. When she arrives at her new home she is pleasantly surprised by its outside appeal and the inside is even more awesome than she could ever expect. The one thing she did not count on though was an onsite property manager in the form of a man named Tanner who she finds herself instantly attracted to in spite of her resolution to never again allow a man into her life. In the midst of her new found happier lease on life Shannon is once again dealt a harsh blow and only manages to find her way out of this new darkness by performing an act of kindness for Tanner that helps her cope with her new reality. This was so short and so full of heartache that it felt like the read was one big downer for the most part, even though Shannon did get her much needed HEA at the end getting there was a very hard road to travel.

    There was something nice about this story and yet it bothered me. I felt the description of Tanner made him younger than 35. He just was too, too nice and kind. The plans made by her first husband were too evil. There was no real explanation for it. And of course too much sadness and death. Yet the story had some intrigue. Read at your own discretion.

    I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review. Shannon has lived in an abuse relationship for 18 years and only escapes after her husband dies or a terminal illness, lasting two years. Little does she know that he spent those two years preparing for her future life to continue to be hellish. Not only did he emotionally abuse her the entire time, he hated her with a passion.

Shannon has lived in an abuse relationship for 18 years and only escapes after her husband dies or a terminal illness, lasting two years. Little does she know that he spent those two years preparing for her future life to continue to be hellish. Not only did he emotionally abuse her the entire time, he hated her with a passion. She is kicked out of the house she believed was hers and moved to the Georgia mountains under her dead husband's legal direction. She meets Tanner, who is there caring for the property. It is true, Shannon is continually dealt emotional blows that never seem to end, but her past scaring allows her to compartmentalize and deal with everything. She may not be dealing well, but who would. She has little support beyond her sister and forms a strong bond with Tanner. **Response to Spoilers** Many have given this a bad review because Shannon's daughter dies and she "moves on too quickly." How are we to decide how someone else copes with such trauma. She has been through so much, why deny her the only ray of sunshine beyond her daughter. The author does describe her continual pain and Shannon recalls her own daughters words as comfort to stop denying herself happiness.

    I liked the storyline for the book. I liked the relationship of Shannon and Tanner. I wish however that the read was longer, so that I could see the relationship between Shannon and Tanner develop over time instead of feeling like they met and fell in love the same day. Shannon had a number of tragedies in her life (I won't spoil it) in a short period of time, and Tanner wasn't a stranger to tragedy himself. It seemed as if these tragedies where gotten over or handled rather fast, and I know it i I liked the storyline for the book. I liked the relationship of Shannon and Tanner.

It would be nice it the author could go back and lengthen the story, because I definitely would read it again. It is for the reasons above that I gave the book 3 stars.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I am not sure who is to blame for me coming away from this book so depressed. I went into this thinking I love second chance romances and walked away thinking was that a romance. Yes it has romantic Elements and a HEA but the tragedy this heroine deals with is too much and in too short of a time. This read as a Women's contemp more then a romance. Unfortunately Amazon doesn't have genres listed so I went in thinking it was a full blown romance. Cover and blurb made it sound that way.

I read the other reviews and will still give the rest of the series a try.

    What a lovely heartbreaking heart lifting story this was. Shannon has struggled in her marriage for the last eighteen years and now she is facing life alone. Her husband that treated her so disdainfully has placed roadblocks in her path even after his death.

    Another good story by Rachel Hanna. I like her writing style. She explains the ordeal between John and Shannon in such a way that the reader understands Shannon's feelings after his passing. We cheer for Shannon's unexpected attraction towards Tanner after what she has been through and her new confidence. I am not sure if a short story was enough to deal with an even deeper grief (or if the storyline was necessary) but everything turns out well in the end. An emotional but good read.

    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This story is full of tragedy with a sweet happily ever after ending. Shannon has been beaten down by an abusive husband for 18 years. When his death finally gives her her freedom, she finds that he still has the power to make her life miserable. Then, just when she thinks she can be happy with Tanner, tragedy strikes. This is an emotional rollercoaster, so strap in and tighten your belts.

    Second Chance is a story with unsuspecting twists that excite you to say what? The story from beginning to end has lots of sorrow the main character Shannon deals with. In the end she feels a sense of happiness. Overlooking the structure and writing techniques the book "Second Chances" with it's nice twists is a mind grabbing read.

    This is the third Book I have read in the new beginning series and this was my least favorite of the three. The Series doesn't need to be read in any order as they are all stand alone stories. This one however was a truly sad story through out the entire book. It of course has a happier ending but that didn't take away the sadness I felt when the end came.

    Yuck! This woman goes from a bad marriage where she was the doormat (her words), and hops into a relationship with the first pair of handsome boots that's nice to her. And then the author kills off a character for no good reason. It was a free Kindle offering. The only thing wasted was my time and not much of that! Yuck!

    Another fantastic book by Rachel Hanna. This book brought out all kinds of emotions, anger, laughter, love and sorrow. This is the 2nd book by Rachel that I have read in one day (The 1st one was The Falls - Sam & Camden). I highly recommend both of these books.

    This was the most dramatic book I have ever read. It kept going from the first word until the last. The emotions that you go through reading this book is unbelievable. I will most certainly keep her as one to watch out for with upcoming books.
