About the Author

Brighton Walsh spent nearly a decade as a professional photographer before deciding to take her storytelling in a different direction and reconnect with her first love: writing. When she’s not pounding away at the keyboard, she’s probably either reading or shopping—maybe even both at once. She lives in the Midwest with her husband and two children, and, yes, she considers forty degrees to be hoodie weather. Her home is the setting for frequent dance parties, Lego battles, and more laughter than she thought possible. Visit her online at brightonwalsh.com.

Havensbrook. A small town, unattractive or fun from which young people flee. A pretentious and prejudiced mayor who wants to control the lives of his daughters in his standards and ways. The older Aurora Jane (Rory), fully meets his expectations. The youngest, Natalie, is a free spirit and ran away as soon as she could. The two middle daughters, Willow and Mackenna are under pressure not to be adequate enough for their father's standards. This is the scenario in Second Chance Charmer. Although the focus of the narrative is Willow Haven and Thomas Griffin, Richard Haven is the mayor and father. And even when he does not appear, in certain scenes he is also present. Because it is a small town, founded by Willow's family, her old relantionship with Finn Thomas and the way he abandoned her and left no word for ten years is known throughout the city. This and other facts, make the approach of Will and Finn a long journey. The interaction between the couple is complicated because it involves much more than just hurt feelings. There are hidden secrets acting as barriers. There are walls erected by the pain of abandonment and rejection. There is a latent and magnetic chemistry that approaches and repels them. Secrets. The town of Havensbrook is full of them. Sisters who hide their true feelings and move away. People sacrificing their hearts for the good of families. Abusive parents, generous grandparents. From the middle of the narrative the secondary characters gain space and give new contours, giving the plot conflicts, depth and meaning. Exciting twists and turns, but an impromptu end. A reading that requires the patience of the reader, as it does not begin with a promising development, because it has scenes with excess of details totally dispensable, and a writing without much fluency, but still, it can please some persistent reader.

Loved the small town heart and the steamy chemistry. A bad boy with southern charm who also happens to be her first love? So much yes. I adore second chance romances and this one was fantastic.

Ahhh….be still my heart!! It’s been awhile since I have read a Brighton Walsh book but once again she reminds me why I adore and love her books. With her sexy and visceral beautiful writing she creates a story for readers to get lost in. Hearts will burst with happiness as we are swept away in an endearing second chance love story that is set in a small town in her latest release, Second Chance Charmer. “No matter what’s happened between us, I’d never want anything to erase what we had. Because what we had was real, Willow, and you know it. Don’t forget that.” Ten years ago, Willow Haven and Finn Thomas were teenagers madly in love. Two kids from opposite side of the tracks, it was a happily ever after romance waiting to happen that is until Finn walked away. No reasons as to why leaving Willow brokenhearted. Fast forward to the present, Finn is back and this time he crosses path with Willow. Will Finn be able to show Willow that their past and present were meant to collide because this was their second chance to make it right? Can Willow forgive Finn Thomas? With Walsh’s charming prose and characters that are so real they jump off the page, Second Chance Charmer is a sweet, heartfelt, and sexy love story that is a testament that real love isn't something that can be easily erased and is worth fighting for

What a fun second chance romance from Brighton Walsh. I have been reading Brighton's books for a few years now, and while third person is not my favorite way to read, she always manages to get me into the story enough not to care. I will say the beginning of this book was a little slow for me personally but once I was hooked it was hard to put down. Willow was hurt badly ten years ago by Finn, the only boy she's ever really loved. He was the town bad boy and her family is basically royalty in the town named after them. They loved deeply but were not meant for each other. But a decade has passed and FInn is back and ready to claim what is his. These two had undeniable chemistry and a romance that hurt and healed. ~miranda

Brighton Walsh has always been a favorite. I’ve been reading her words for what seems like forever and I will forever read them. I don’t even need to know what the story is about, her name is enough. Willow and Finn are so much fun together. She seems straight laced, but she’s full of sass and he seems gruff, but he’s a sweet marshmallow when it comes to Willow. Together they have chemistry off the charts. Plot wise it was a lot of push and pull and so many things could have been solved with a MFing conversation. However, Brighton has such a delicious thread of tension going through the story, it was easy to overlook. There’s a lot of history between them and I truly enjoyed reading them figure things out. My only complaint is that I wanted a lot more from the epilogue, but I’m satisfied and crazy excited for the set up of the next book. Fingers crossed it’s Rory’s. **Huge thanks to Brighton for providing the arc free of charge**

Second Chance Charmer by Brighton Walsh is a wonderful second-chance romance set in a whimsical small town that I would love to visit. Well-paced and well-written I couldn't get enough of Finn & Willow and the secondary characters in this tale. Willow has been dealing with the heartbreak of Finn leaving without a word for nearly ten years. She was doing good, she thought, revitalizing the town despite the constant undermining and complaining from her father, the mayor. When Finn shows back up with his twin brother wanting to open a bar on main street she is left with no choice but to deal with him. The business will pump good money into the town so she wants it to open but with as little interaction with Finn as possible if you please. Finn left Willow behind all those years ago for a number of reasons. He wouldn't change what he did but he has always regretted it. The bar opening is a chance for him to maybe set things right with her and finally heal the gaping hole his leaving left in both their hearts. LOVED THIS! Romantic, angsty, witty, sexy - all the good makings of a strong romance and all pieced together perfectly. Enjoy!
