Meet the Author

Melissa Keir has always wanted to be an author when she wasn’t hoping for a career as a race car driver. Her love of books was instilled by her mother and grandparents who were avid readers. She’d often sneak books away from them so that she could fantasize about those strong alpha males and plucky heroines. In middle school and high school, Melissa used to write sappy love poems and shared them with her friends and still has those poems today! In college her writing changed to sarcastic musings on life as well as poems with a modern twist on fairy tales and won awards for her writing. You can find many of these musings along with her latest releases on her website and blog.

As a writer, Melissa likes to keep current on topics of interest in the world of writing. She’s a member of the Romance Writers of America, Mid-Michigan RWA Chapter, and EPIC. She is always interested in improving her writing through classes and seminars.

Melissa doesn’t believe in down time. She’s always keeping busy. Melissa is a wife and mother, an elementary school teacher, a book reviewer, an editor for a publishing company as well as an author. Her home blends two families and is a lot like the Brady Bunch, without Alice- a large grocery bill, tons of dirty dishes and a mound of laundry. She loves to write stories that feature happy endings and is often seen plotting her next story.

Second Time's the Charm is a sweet tale of romance being found where it is least expected. Lissa Vincent is a real woman who was devistated after her divorce and now is entering the dating scene again. What she doesn't expect is that Alex might just be the man of her dreams if she can get past the fact that he is her best friend's ex-husband. Lissa was a great character who really felt like my best friend. Trying to do what is right as a mom, she didn't put herself first but did everything else for everyone else. It is only after she see's Alex that she comes alive. I liked how she struggled with whether or not to see him because of the bad things she'd heard from her friend. I only wish the story was longer because I'm sure that this whole new relationship is going to cause some issues in Lissa's friendship. Maybe Ms. Keir will write a second story so we can find out about what happens next!

This was a very quick read. It proves that you can find love when you're least looking for it. The real conflict seemed to be Lissa's ex and the grief he gave her for dating again. As a grown "child of divorce," it's important for a parent to move on and be happy which is what Lissa did. A happy mom, makes a happy family, right? Knowing that this is a series, I think Melissa did a great job laying the ground work for drama to occur in future books in this series. I can't write too much because I'm anxious to get on to the next book "Three's a Crowd!"

A Charming Tale Second Time’s the Charm By Melissa Keir is a delightful short story that is absolutely perfect for a quick read in between books or when you are on a coffee or lunch break. Lissa is a divorced mom of two, who has just meet her best friend’s ex-husband and the attraction between them is instead. Can the second time around be the chance for a Happy Ending? While there were some editing issues, as stated in another review, I did not feel it distracted from the story. The author was gracious enough to give me a sneak peek into the next book in this series and I very much look forward to reading it.
