Product Description

Jake West's troubled cousin leaves him with a most unusual parting gift-her newborn baby girl! And now the small-town contractor is forced to seek help from the very woman he resents-the new big-city pediatrician who practically stole his uncle's practice, Violet Crenshaw. Violet knows she shouldn't be consorting with the enemy. But she can't resist the adorable baby and her handsome new caretaker. Violet traded her chance at motherhood for her career years ago. But raising a family with Jake could be everything she's ever wanted.

    Warning: Extreme swoon factor. Honestly, there is something so...heart palpitating...about a clueless, macho guy taking on baby duty. All those bumbling good intentions, the earnest fumblings, the dear-in-the-headlights gaze. And when the baby starts to make inroads into his tough-as-nails construction worker heart, well...all I'm saying is have a fainting couch on hand! There are some deliciously endearing scenes. And plenty of funny ones. Not to mention heart-tugging. Jake and Violet get off to a rocky start, but as they bond over baby, their relationship transforms into something promising -- until a few complications hold their happily ever after hostage. I gobbled this one up in a day.

    This is a truly inspirational, life-affirming, heartwarming example of second chances in healing, love, trust, redemption, forgiveness, and the gift of prayer. Ive come to expect no less from Missy Tippens an accomplished author and ministers wife with long experience in assisting in Gods work. Of all the Love Inspired authors, I believe I look forward most to each new Tippens romance. While the time between books seems to stretch out forever, I seem to gobble up each new book on its first day of release! But then, the long wait for the next Tippens starts all over again. However, I cant help myself. I just love her books and uniquely loving voice.

    Indeed, if you love the heartwarming joy of reading second chance romances, as much as I do, then you should delight in this story which features second chances in love, redemption, and forgiveness for Remy, Remys parents, Violet, Violets parents, and Jake all inspired because of the love for an adorable fatherless new born infant!

    Here is a story so rich in depth that five different lives obtain a second chance at happiness because of the courageous decisions of each of the characters. It has been years since Ive felt as good reading a romance as I felt reading "The Doctor's Second Chance". (The doctor, by the way, is the heroine. Did you think otherwise? I must admit, I did.)

    Requiring second chances for five different people necessitates quite a bit of dysfunction among the parties. And dysfunction there is. All this conflict generates plenty of page-turning interest. "The Doctor's Second Chance" is not just an 'I couldn't put it down' romance; it's an 'I couldn't even think about putting it down' reading experience. For example:

    Jake, the hero, has a history of dating women he would never marry. He is shy of being burned in love given his childhood experiences. Violet, the heroine, was forced into a heart wrenching decision by her parents in high school which severed their relationship for years. Remy, the baby mother, has the troubled past of breaking her wonderful parents' hearts.

    Into this sea of dysfunction drops an adorable infant right on the bachelor's 'doorstep'. Why him? Because the mother, his cousin, sees him as the only responsible and trustworthy adult in her life.

    Truly, the conflict in "The Doctor's Second Chance" runs deep. At first it seems unlikely to ever be untangled. But then this is an inspirational romance. The reader expects a miracle. That's the real fun in reading such romances.

    Did I say I love the authors voice? Let me give a little sample below. (The heroine is in church and the hero cant keep his eyes off her.)

    He glanced over. Violet looked lovely with colored light from the stained glass window beaming on her shiny ebony hair and smooth, pale shoulder.

    I just love the image of colored light from the stained glass windows lighting up the heroine for the hero while the setting in a church is firmly evidenced. This is just wonderful writing which also reflects back on the hero's emotional state on seeing the heroine in a new light. The author's voice is this rich from start to finish of this book.

    Great Reading!

    5 Star Enjoyment!

    Enjoy it today!

    I liked this book. A strong women and a bachelor who is a gentleman. I found Violet and Jake were very like-able, each with their own set of problems that would bring them together.. A story that was interesting from start to finish. I was gifted a copy for my honest opinion by FlyBy Promotions.

    When I began reading the novel, it soon became apparent that I wasnt going to quit reading until the end! I was caught up in the heart-rending drama of a single man raised by an aunt and uncle after his parents death in the past and now facing fatherhood when his cousin shows up and leaves her newborn with him. All Jake is aware of is how to do construction and is clueless as to how to care for a newborn baby girl.

    Jake grew up with his cousin Remy and knows she has a tendency to dump her problems or responsibilities on others before vanishing. Now Jake has to seek the help of the local pediatrician who purchased his uncles practice and as far as Jake is concerned ripped off the couple. When he seeks Violets help in how to care for a newborn, the past issues in both their lives come to the forefront. For the moment the main focus has to be on the baby, but as time goes by Jake is determined to locate Remy before adopting the baby to make sure it is what his cousin desires.

    As I read about the past of Violet Crenshaw, the pediatrician is slowly revealed and Jakes heart begins to melt letting go of his hard feelings. What develops is a touching story of redemption, hope and love even after so much time has passed in lives thought lost to pain or bad choices. My heart at one time really felt the tortures a couple of the characters were going through, but I am glad the author didnt stop the story. The ending is priceless and renews the heart with hope as lives and loves begin anew. It was a great book to read on a quiet Saturday afternoon!
