Second Grace: Stories of Fresh Starts, Second Chances, and Also Running Away
It is such a delight to come across books like this—especially during the summertime. With kids roaming and screaming around the house, it truly was a treat to sit outside on the patio as Candace Leigh Coulombe transported me to many exhilarating settings with an assortment of folks, each having their own thought-provoking stories to tell. From posh spa lounges, botched out-of-town lover rendezvous, cruise mishaps, and a clandestine discussion taking place at the backroom of a perfumery, these short accounts will keep you on your toes, climaxing perfectly with every ending.
Coulombe is a gifted writer and a breath of fresh air, especially in times where the industry is replete with people trying hard to be “authors” just because self-publishing is as easy as a click of a button. The passages in these short anecdotes were well-thought out, comprehensible, and filled with magnificent characters, most of which I connected with and whom evoked strong emotions from me that left me wanting more. Live through them vicariously for a moment and allow the collected stories of Second Chances to empower you to escape and start anew.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
