One Chance Only

self-published. (Midsummer Sisters, Bk. 2). May 2022. 195p. ebk. ISBN 9798201823566. $4.99. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
A tricky legal case—and their mothers’ matchmaking—bring a pair of star-crossed lovers together in Grace’s second “Midsummer Sisters” novel (following Your Heart Only). Jason Graywolf and Dani Price have been interested in each other since law school, but a misunderstanding has kept them apart. Now they’re both at a northern California inn to help their friends navigate a challenge to their businesses’ legitimacy. After some maternal meddling, they’re also stuck staying in the same suite. Jason and Dani have a policy of being honest with each other, which helps them resolve some relationship concerns early and directly. The legal case is trickier and full of deceit, requiring them to strategize together and bring in their families to help. There are some minor inconsistencies: the timeline leading up to Dani’s getting stuck in a particularly dangerous situation is confusing, and Jason’s thick, shoulder-length hair (mentioned several times, often in connection with his Black and Indigenous family) is not reflected on the cover.
VERDICT A strong choice for readers who appreciate second-chance stories. The legal plot is an interesting side story, but the highlight is the romance and the interconnected web of family and friends.
