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.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
