The Butterfly Garden: That Second Chance, Book 6 by Mary Campisi

Sometimes we're lucky enough to get that second chance – in life and in love. That Second Chance Series are stand-alone stories of strong women who battle heartache and loss with a courage and determination to find new paths and true love. What ties them together? A common theme: belief in the beauty of that second chance.

The Butterfly Garden is Book Six of That Second Chance Series.

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 help. Soon, she's knee-deep in small-town, suburban life, the kind she's always avoided...

Psychologist Elliot Drake spends so much time healing other people's pain that he prefers to keep his own relationships short and uncomplicated. He's loved and lost once and with a young daughter to raise, he's not willing to risk his heart again. Of course, he's never met anyone quite like Jenny. Outrageous and unpredictable, she's nothing like her well-controlled older sister. And the more he's around Jenny, the more he wonders if short-term is really what he wants...

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?

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 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 is currently working on A Family Affair: Fall, Book Four in the popular Truth in Lies Series, due out Fall 2014.

This is a very believable story. The characters are believable, flaws and all. How past issues can keep cropping up and influencing your life, and revisiting past insecurities whether painful or happy are very real issues that we all deal with. Well done Ms Campisi.
