Review: A Chance of a Lifetime

For this review, I chose A Chance of a Lifetime by Marilyn Pappano.

I requested ARC copy of the ebook through Netgalley in exchanged for a honest review.

Here is a brief description from Goodreads:
To Benita Ford, Tallgrass, Oklahoma, will always be home. It's where her beloved grandmother raised her and where she rode bikes with her two best friends—the man who became her husband and Calvin. And Tallgrass is where she stayed, even after her husband died while serving his country. Now Calvin is home from that same war, and the sensitive, mischievous boy she once knew is today a man scarred by wounds no one else can see. Falling in love with him is something Bennie never imagined.

Tallgrass still haunts Captain Calvin Sweet. Yet it's where he must go to see Bennie—the one woman he always loved but could never have. Calvin regrets so much about what happened years ago. Still he can't deny being with Bennie makes his future feel bright, like anything is possible. But the demons of his past won't be quieted that easily. As old hurts linger, threatening to pull them apart, Calvin and Bennie must take the ultimate risk for the love of a lifetime.

This was such a sweet book about 2 old friends getting to know one another again after a lot of time went by.  Bennie lost her husband and her best friend serving his country.  Calvin was serving his country, too, and came home to see what life is after his military career is over.  Calvin was best friends with both Bennie and her husband.  They both of issues to get through so they can find their way to one another.

The story between Lucy and Joe was different than what was happening with Calvin and Bennie.  Some surprises there.

I love the town of Tallgrass, Oklahoma.  It seems like a great town to be in.
I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
Would I recommend this book? Yes! Author? Yes!
Would I read more from this author? Yes!

Happy Reading!
