Emily’s Chance by Sharon Gillenwater Review


Emily’s Chance by Sharon Gillenwater
ISBN: 978-0-8007-3354-4
Available Oct. 2010; $14.99

From the publisher:

Emily Rose may be in the tiny West Texas town of Callahan Crossing for the moment, but it's just a rung on her ladder to success. Her work at the Callahan Crossing historical society will look good on her ever-growing resume as she attempts to break into the prestigious world of a big city museum curator.
Little does she know cowboy and contractor Chance Callahan has decided that he can convince her to stay—both with the town and with him. As he helps Emily restore the town's history after a devastating fire, he also helps her uncover her own hidden worth and the value of love.
The second book in The Callahans of Texas series, Emily's Chance is a heartwarming story of letting love take the lead.

My Review:

A true love story!   I’m from Texas and this book brought me back home.  I loved the way the author brings the story to life and makes sure that real problems are met head on with a Christian real life stance.

Every time I picked up this book – I was interrupted.  I couldn’t wait to pick it back up and see where the story would lead.

I loved the honest true feelings that Chance Callahan had and he wasn’t shy about them.

This made West Texas even seem inviting.  I loved the scenery and how the author made you feel that you were part of the landscape.

I would definitely recommend this book!  It was clean but dealt with adult issues.

I wouldn’t mind reading more of this author!  This book is staying in my permanent library. 

I want my boys to treat their future brides -“gentlemanly correct.”  I love that – GC!

Blessings to you!  You are loved!!!
