Take A Chance On Me is a wonderfully written story with delightful characters that you can identify with and cheer for. The strong sense of place made me feel like I was right there, walking the streets, in the bookstore, on the beach. ~ Annette, Amazon review
Great to read a book where the hero is such a genuinely nice guy even if a little cautious. The heroine knows her heart and works to overcome her fear of repeating past mistakes. With a few quirky characters, a delectable sounding chocolate shop and a few settings I’d love to visit in real life, Take A Chance on Me definitely puts the “sweet” in Sweet Romance. ~Homeschool Mama, Amazon review
Take a Chance on Me is a cute (clean!) romance story that gave me all the Hallmark movie feels! I want to be best friends with Rachel (main character) and eat all the chocolate from Little Shop of Sugar! ~Heather, Amazon review
I set Take a Chance on Me in Asheville because it’s where I live. I used real locations as inspiration for my made up businesses. Page Turner Books was an amalgamation of two local stores, Malaprop’s and Battery Park Book Exchange & Champagne Bar. Little Shop of Sugar was inspired by The Chocolate Fetish, my favorite truffle store in the city. The N.C. Arboretum is real, and I used my visits to Winter Lights for the details. Haywood Street Market isn’t real (I actually modeled it off of a combination of Krog Street Market and Ponce City Market in Atlanta, GA where I used to live), but there is The S&W Market. Pack Library is the county library in downtown Asheville. Wolfe Ridge Park doesn’t exist, but Asheville has several great parks that I thought about when creating my fictional park.
