    In the previous books in the Return to Dry Creek Series, Gracie

    In the previous books in the Return to Dry Creek Series, Gracie has watched her sons find the loves of their lives, marry, and settle down on the family's ranch. In Second Chance in Dry Creek, Gracie still struggles with feeling accepted in the town where she grew up and raised her sons. But she also must recover from the affects of her abusive marriage and its drastic end. Gracie proves that she is a loving and kind woman, caring for neighbor Calen's new-found granddaughter. But learning to trust is difficult for Gracie. However, Calen patiently proves himself worthy of her trust, and they are both given second chances at love and happiness.

    I enjoyed this book. I loved reading about Gracie's growth as a person, and getting to know Calen, who has had his eye on Gracie since high school.

    I received a copy of this book from the author, in exchange for this review.

    SECOND CHANCE IN DRY CREEK, Grace's story was heartwarming, insp

    SECOND CHANCE IN DRY CREEK, Grace's story was heartwarming, inspiring and uplifting. It was a wonderful story of a mother's love for her son's. Grace tells her story of how she felt living in an abusive marriage, admitting to killing her husband to protect a son she thought killed his father. How after 10 yrs. in prison it felt to come home needing to be accepted, feeling she belongs, learning to trust again and finding love. Her second chance that she embraced for herself and her sons.
    I loved Janet Tronstad's RETURN TO DRY CREEK series. Getting to know the Stone family though each one telling their story. Hearing Grace's story really touched my heart. I'm so happy that Grace and her son's are back together and they were able to move on from the past. Grace finding a loving man and the boys beginning their own families.
    I'm sorry to see the series end. I hope that in future Dry Creek stories we get a glimpse of how the family is and what they are doing.
    I'm looking forward to the next Dry Creek story.

    Return to Dry Creek Book 4

    Second Chance in Dry Creek by Janet Tronstad Dry Creek Series Book 22 Return to Dry Creek Book 4 Gracie Stone has all three of her sons back on the family ranch in Dry Creek and they are all happily married. Now they think that mom should find a good man and give marriage a second chance. After the way her late husband abused her--Gracie isn’t so sure she likes the idea of marriage, of ever trusting another man that way. All thoughts of marriage are interrupted when she suddenly has a late night visitor on her doorstep and a young child who needs her. Calen Gray is foreman at Elkton Ranch and has always held a flame for Gracie. Only Buck Stone had asked her out before he got up the nerve. And after the way Buck treated Gracie after they married, Calen believed he had failed her by not helping her while married and not doing more to defend her after the murder. And now they are suddenly thrown together and he couldn’t be happier. Will he have the courage to tell this beautiful woman what’s been in his heart all these years or will his silence keep them apart? Welcome to Janet’s small town of Dry Creek. Where not much gets past Edith Hargrove or the other folks in this town. Where faith, food, fun and romance abound but the road is usually a bit bumpy on the way to the happy ending. I always enjoy my time in Dry Creek and look forward to the next visit. **Received through NetGalley for review
