Four best friends, one risky business, and a chance to say “I do” one more time. . .
With their fledgling business Second Chances facing its first big break, four best friends turned wedding consultants face second chances–and challenges–of their own. For always-practical, always-predictable Elaine, it’s a time for a total makeover . . . but is the new “dream-her” really her? For Lily, the free-spirited, free-spending sprite, it was the chance to find the one thing missing from her life that not even money could buy. And while Sarah, the self-reliant artist, faces a crisis that proves just how much she needs her friends, ex-publicist Jo is tantalizingly closer to true love than she can ever possibly imagine.
Ex-husbands, computer dating, teenage kids–the world’s much different than when they first said “I do,” but one thing’s the same: they’re all hoping their second chance will be a charm.

In West Hope, Massachusetts, Jo, Lily, Sarah, and Elaine formed Second Chances, which successfully hosted a wedding for Jo¿s mom. The group caters to people marrying for the second time. Single father Andrew Kennedy has joined the team, but hides his day job as a columnist for Buzz magazine from the females especially fearing Jo¿s reaction as he has fallen in love with her.................... Feeling a bit guilty about duping the women and knowing he needs to confess to Jo, Andrew tests the water by informing Elaine. However, before he admits his secret to his beloved, Jo reads Buzz and recognizes that the man who has given her a second chance at believing has lied by omission. Will a distraught Andrew persuade a devastated Jo that she can trust him if she gives him a second chance?.................. The concurrently published sequel to the delightful middle age women¿s fiction ONCE UPON A BRIDE, TWICE UPON A WEDDING, will provide the audience with double the fun. The story line concentrates on Elaine¿s efforts to redo herself into something better and on Andrew¿s attempts to tell the truth and make it with Jo. Though reading the first book helps as it provides much of the baseline for this tale, contemporary women¿s fiction readers can enjoy this tale as a fine modern day relationship drama.............
