Emily's Chance: Book Review
About The Book:
Emily Rose may be in the tiny West Texas town of Callahan Crossing for the moment, but it's just a rung on her ladder to success. Her work at the Callahan Crossing Historical Museum will look good on her ever-growing resume as she attempts to break into the prestigious world of a big city museum curator. Little does she know that cowboy and contractor Chance Callahan has decided that he can convince her to stay--both with the town and with him. As he helps Emily restore the town's history after a devastating fire, can he help her uncover the value of love?
About The Author:
Sharon Gillenwater was born and raised in West Texas and loves to write about her native state. The author of several novels, including Jenna's Cowboy and Emily's Chance, she is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers. When she's not writing, she and her husband enjoy spending time with their son, daughter-in-law, and two adorable grandchildren. She lives in Washington.
After reading Jenna's Cowboy, the first in The Callahan's of Texas series by Sharon Gillenwater, I was left with anticipation about what would happen in the next book. When the opportunity came up to review the second book in the series, Emily's Chance, I jumped at it. I was not disappointed.
As with Jenna's Cowboy, Gillenwater brings the reader a fantastic group of characters, with just enough romance to spice things up in a clean manner, and a few twists and turns along the way. I love the way that despite their best laid plans, God shows main characters, Emily Rose and Chance Callahan, that it is His timing and plans that always take top place in our lives, if only we let Him.
If you are looking for a great Christian Western Fiction book to read for yourself or give as a gift for Christmas, look no further than Emily's Chance by Sharon Gillenwater.
