Today I am reviewing The Lawman’s Second Chance, the 1st book in the Kirkwood Lake series by Ruth Logan Herne.
Here is a brief synopsis:
Love In Bloom
After losing his wife to cancer, Lt. Alexander Steele vowed he’d protect himself and his children from that kind of loss again. But that was before he laid eyes on Lisa Fitzgerald.
She welcomes him to town and immediately connects with his shy daughter, Emma.
Yet Lisa is a cancer survivor herself, and so a reminder of everything Alex and his family suffered.
Will a relationship with her be too much for him to bear?
With their love growing even faster than Lisa’s beautiful gardens, Alex has to decide whether he can risk his heart once more.
When Alex meets Lisa, he never expects in a million years to fall in love — again.
But when he discovers that she is recovering from breast cancer — the same heinous disease that took his wife from him — will he stay? Or will he do what he vowed to do . . . run away!
If you want to know, you’ll have to read the book for yourself. Please let me assure you, it’s worth your time. It’s an awesome story . . . of love, joy, pain, and loss.
Ruth Logan Herne pursues a subject many authors avoid — cancer is a very difficult thing to write about, but Ruth does a superb job telling Lisa’s story, and Alex’s story.
This is such a worthwhile subject – and story . . . and the characters are definitely up to the task. They’re delightful, entertaining, and loveable.
Don’t miss this exciting series, found in the wonderful (fictional) place of Kirkwood Lake.
