mary's book basket ~ "emily's chance" by sharon gillenwater

Emily's Chance by Sharon Gillenwater is a heartwarming, sweet and emotionally satisfying romance set in West Texas. Have I ever told you I have a soft spot for cowboys? Well Chance Callahan is a hero after my own heart. He is handsome and has a heart for Jesus. He also wants to woo the lovely but skittish Emily Rose. This is Christian romance at it's best. Ms. Gillenwater has hit another one out of the park.

Product Description:
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. Readers will come away wishing they lived in Callahan Crossing.

I knew I was in for a treat when I saw a back cover quote from one of my favorite writers: 
"Filled with Texas charm and the healing power of love."
---#1 New York Times bestselling author Debbie Macomber

She was absolutely right. This book was filled with the wonderful charm of a small West Texas town and all the quirky characters who live there. The theme of healing love is strong throughout the book, especially when it comes to Emily and Chances story. It was a wonderful read that filled a glorious Sunday afternoon. If your looking for a strong hero and a story that will tug at your heartstrings, Emily's Chance is the one for you.

Happy Reading,
