Second Chance Grille (Liberty 2) by Christine Nolfi

Thanks to author Christine Nolfi, I got the chance to read her recent book Second Chance Grille.  Here's the cover and Goodreads blurb:

An unforgettable tale of love, loss and second chances. Second Chance Grill is the prequel to Treasure Me, 2012 Next Generation Indie Awards Finalist, which The Midwest Book Review calls “A riveting read for those who enjoy adventure fiction, highly recommended.” Dr. Mary Chance needs a sabbatical from medicine to grieve the loss of her closest friend. But when she inherits a struggling restaurant in Liberty, Ohio she isn’t prepared for Blossom Perini. Mary can’t resist falling for the precocious preteen—or the girl’s father. The bond they forge will transform all their lives and set in motion an outpouring of love that spreads across America. Welcome back to Liberty, where the women surrounding the town’s only restaurant are as charming as they are eccentric.
What a great book!  I really enjoyed this one.  It is an emotional and heart warming story about second chances and being open to life's journey, even when it derails all your carefully laid plans.  The characters are large as life and you can't help but love them.  The story takes place in a fictional small town in North East Ohio which was great fun for me, being from Ohio myself.  You really get a feel for the town and the people who live there and it all just comes alive.  All in all, I loved this book and look forward to the next one.  I labeled this an adult book because it is a romance with some discussion of sex but it is nowhere near as graphic as most romances.  It could easily be read by almost anyone.
