About the Author

Mary Campisi writes emotion-packed books about second chances. Whether contemporary romances, women's fiction, or Regency historicals, her books all center on belief in the beauty of that second chance.

Mary 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 following the lives of five young 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. She has recently released A Family Affair: Summer, Book 3 in the popular family saga series, Truth In Lies. Mary is currently working on A Family Affair: Fall, Book 4.

This is the second book I've read of hers, and I'm already looking forward to another one. It was a heartwarming story, and the characters were so easy to relate to.

I could not put this book down. This is the 2nd book I read from this author, what talent. I felt as if I knew these women and can relate with them. Beware it may keep you up all night- it was worth my sleepless nights.
