It's all about that second chance...

The Butterfly Garden is Book Six of That Second Chance Series. (These are stand-alone stories tied together by a common theme- belief in the beauty of that second chance.)

Sometimes love happens when you least expect it...

Jenny Romano has never been a white-picket-fence, happily-ever-after girl. Despite a mother who rejected her free-spirited, unique ways as irresponsible and just plain wrong, Jenny has found happiness as a photographer, flitting around the country and snapping photos of other people's lives. Her older sister, Grace, has a husband, children, and a carpool schedule. She's the one their mother calls "perfect."

But when tragedy strikes her sister's carefully constructed life, Jenny must step in and offer support. Soon, she finds herself in the sort of small-town suburban life she swore to avoid...

Psychologist Elliot Drake spends so much time healing other people's pain and witnessing the backlash of caring too deeply that he prefers to keep his own relationships short and bittersweet. He's loved and lost once and with a young daughter to raise, he's not willing to risk his heart again. But he's never met anyone quite like Jenny. Outrageous and unpredictable, she's a force of nature-not at all like her well-controlled older sister. Suddenly, Elliot isn't so sure that short-term is what he wants...

Taken by surprise and unsure of the next step, Elliot and Jenny are about to discover that real life happens whether you want it to or not. Will they let real love happen, too?

Meet the Author

Mary Campisi should have known she'd become a writer when at age thirteen she began changing the ending to all the books she read. It took several years and a number of jobs, including registered nurse, receptionist in a swanky hair salon, accounts payable clerk, and practice manager in an OB/GYN office, for her to rediscover writing. Enter a mouse-less computer, a floppy disk, and a dream large enough to fill a zip drive. The rest of the story lives on in every book she writes.

When she's not working on her craft or keeping up with the lives of five adult children, Mary's digging in the dirt with her flowers and herbs, cooking, reading, walking her rescue Lab mix, Cooper, or on the perfect day, riding off into the sunset with her very own "hero" husband on his Ultra Limited aka Harley.

Mary has published with Kensington, Carina Press, and The Wild Rose Press.

I loved this book. The characters are real w/all the frustrating family dynamics we all have as well as second chances and new beginnings. It feels real and heartfelt - absolutely lived it.
