Second Chances 101 by Donna K. Weaver

Second Chances 101 by Donna K. Weaver Thirty seven year old Francie Davis, a recent widow and empty nester, gets to attend college at last. She’s sure her luck has changed when she also lands a job on campus that will pay her tuition, as administrative assistant to a history professor. When her handsome new boss yells at her on the first day of work, Francie worries she will never be good enough. For Professor Alex Diederik, life is going downhill fast. Not only is his bitter ex-wife trying to poison their only daughter against him, but now his one place of solace—his work environment—is being complicated by his attractive new administrative assistant. She drives home his feelings of failure as a husband and father, and Alex wonders if hiring her was the right thing to do. Francie will have to put aside her hurt and insecurities or risk her dreams, while Alex must look outside himself if he’s to mend the breach with his daughter. And, perhaps, find someone who can help heal his pain. DonnaWAuthor Donna K. Weaver Donna K. Weaver has always loved reading and creating stories, thus she’s been ever entertained.

My Review

This was a really sweet story. I loved the growth in not just the adults relationships but the dad with his daughter. I thought it was great to have a romance between a forty-something couple. Second Chances 101 is another fun addition to this series. I can't wait to keep reading.


EXCERPT

“I heard that laugh.” Sam pointed a finger at him. “What have you been doing? Please don’t tell me you’ve been sitting in that old chair waiting for me.”

“I did read for a while,” Alex confessed before pointing to his screen.

She came to stand behind him and looked at the monitor. “Are you kidding me? Online dating? That’s brilliant. Why didn’t you do this sooner?” She didn’t give him a chance to speak, but pushed him out of his chair and sat in it herself. “Let me help. This will be fun!”

Alex bent over her shoulder to see what she was typing. “Hey, wait a minute.Ripped? Samantha Rosamunde Diederik. Don’t you dare write that. I don’t want to meet some woman and have her find out that everything she thinks she knows about me is a lie.”

“Oh, please, Daddy. You might not be tall, but you have a six-pack. And don’t forget your guns.”

“My what?”

“Your biceps. You are so twentieth century.”

Alex shifted uneasily as she kept typing.
