'The Second Chance Shoe Shop is that rarest of treats, a story filled with warm and wonderful characters who feel like your best friends from the first page.' Tilly Tennant
All Riley Flynn wants is to meet someone who makes her happy. But attracting the right kind of man is not easy, and with her heart still hurting from her last break-up, Riley believes she’ll never find love again.
A year ago, Sadie Stewart’s whole world was shattered when her husband, Ross, died. She has struggled to keep herself together for the sake of their young daughter, but with the anniversary of his death approaching, Sadie finds herself overwhelmed by grief.
Sadie and Riley work at Chandlers shoe shop, in the charming town of Hedworth. But when Chandlers is threatened with closure, the friends are confronted with the loss of not only their jobs, but also their support network - the glue that holds them together when they are close to breaking.
As they put together a plan to save their beloved shop, Sadie realises that she might just be learning to live again. Could it be that new beginnings are just round the corner? The campaign also finds Riley unexpectedly crossing paths with charming photographer, Ethan. Maybe her second chance at love is right under her feet …
A delightfully romantic tale of love, friendship and putting your best foot forward, for fans of Carole Matthews and Amanda Prowse.
Well Marcie Steele has done it again. This is now the 3rd book I have read by this author and just like the other two books, I loved this one.
Right from early on, you just know that you are slowly being dragged into the story. It's almost like Hedworth is the town where you live, that you know Riley, Sadie and Dan because you've been in the shop a million times. It really does make you believe.
I just loved the way the story went. It's a real feel good book. Friendship, love, romance but not all plain sailing, there are a few ups and downs thrown in for good measure.
The weather is improving, the sun is popping it's head out a little more, this is one of those books you can go out in the garden with and get lost into it. (the book not the garden).
It's down to Riley and her gang at the struggling shoe shop to get sales and profits up, not easy when the shop doesn't cater for the people it needs to. Can Riley and her trusty work mates get things turned around and keep the shop going. Well you'll have to read it and find out.
I don't want to spoil any of the story for anyone, so what else can I say other than, You really do need to buy this book and read it. And if you Haven't read the other two, then you might as well treat yourself and get those at the same time. After all it's nearly summer and we all need that feel good factor, and you will certainly get it from these books.
