In Firefly Valley
Texas Crossroads #2
by Amanda Cabot

Rainbow's End is preparing for its reopening under new owners Greg and Kate (whom we got to know in At Bluebonnet Lake). Marisa St. George has reluctantly agreed to a position as business manager of the new Rainbow's End.  Though she had never planned to return to her hometown, her life took an unexpected turn when she lost her job in Atlanta.

Dupree, Texas was the last place Marisa wanted to be.  Her memories were painful and she wanted to forget.  But her return has been a blessing for Rainbow's End and her mother Carmen is delighted at her daughter's return.

Marisa's memories make her want to run but Rainbow End's newest guest gives her a reason to stay.  But trust is something Marisa doesn't easily give.  Could Blake Kendall give her a reason to trust?  A reason to perhaps love?

But Blake Kendall has a secret that could destroy Marisa's trust.  After all why would he keep something so important a secret unless he had something to be ashamed of?  '

But before she can learn to trust Marisa must let go of the pain and anger from her past.  To give herself a future she must first believe in second chances.

In Firefly Valley is all about second chances.  Second chances at love. Second chances at finding one's dream.  Second chances at having a family.  Sometimes what we want is found in the simple things of life and not the big cities or accolades of achievement.  This delightful sequel to  At Bluebonnet Lake will allow you to believe in second chances and the healing power found in trusting in God.

I was provided a copy of this book by Revell through their blogger program Revell Reads in exchange for my honest review.

She's lost her dream job--but has she found the man of her dreams?

Devastated by a downsizing, Marisa St. George has no choice but to return to the small Texas town where she grew up. Though it means a giant step backward, she accepts a position as business manager at the struggling Rainbow's End resort. The only silver lining: Blake Kendall, a new guest who might make her believe in love at first sight. But will Marisa's dreams of happily-ever-after be turned upside down when she discovers Blake's real identity?

This warm and witty story of dreams deferred and mistaken identity will have you believing in second chances.
