ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
A Word from the Author: To steal a line from Donny and Marie, I’m a little bit country, a little bit rock-n-roll. I’m trapped in the city, but prefer the country or the mountains.
I love Jesus, my family, and just about anything sweet.
I believe Jesus died for my sins, rose three days later, and will one day return. He has carried me through some of my darkest hours. Without faith in Him, I would be nowhere.
I have a penchant for chocolate, clothes, and shoes. When I’m not penning romance novels, I enjoy cooking, decorating and shopping.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Businesswoman Celeste Thompson has one goal: to make her restaurant and hotel a success. She doesn't need any distractions, even from handsome contractor Gage Purcell and his two adorable little girls. Besides, single dad Gage is just biding his time before a big job at the mines comes through. But as Celeste's project springs to life, their arguments transform into attraction. Gage isn't looking for romance, especially not with another career-driven woman like his ex-wife. But openhearted Celeste is more than just another work-consumed client. She might just be his happily-ever-after.

I have to say, this was my first experience in reading a book by Mindy Obenhaus and that makes me quite sad. You see, she has a wonderful fresh voice and I have missed out on her previous Love Inspired books. But not to worry, I can purchase them online and plan to do just that.
A Father's Second Chance is the wonderful story of Celeste Thompson who owns a restaurant in Ouray, Colorado, named "Granny's Kitchen". She inherited it from her grandmother and now has great plans to develop the upstairs area. This brings in our hero, Gage Purcell, who is currently working in construction until a job in the mining industry opens up for him. Gage is a single father raising two young daughters who just happen to love Celeste. The question is, will their father take their lead and do the same?
This a story of second chances for not only Gage and Celeste, but also Celeste and her mother. What transpires through this wonderful story touched my heart. Ms. Obenhaus created such wonderful, believable, flawed characters and set them into the beautiful town of Ouray. The town, Granny's Kitchen, and the Golden Girl Mine are also characters within the book and embrace the reader to become one with the story. I loved it!
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a sweet love story.
On a 5-Star scale - 5 Stars!!!!!
I would like to thank Christian Fiction Blog Alliance and Mindy Obenhaus for my copy of A Father's Second Chance. I received my copy for free in order to read it and give my honest opinion, which I have done.
Smiles & Blessings,
