Hey guys! I have a book review for you about the book Second Chance by Karina Harris. Avalin Summers's life changes forever when she is told her parents may not be dead. In the romantic suspense novel Second Chance, Karina Harris weaves an intriguing tale of hope and uncertainty in the story of Avalin Summers, an art student who is fiercely loyal to her older brothers, Jaden and Quinn. When Jaden requests a family meeting at their childhood farm in Colorado, she doesn't question him. But what she discovers is something she hasn't dared to dream about for the past five years. Special Agent Ian Martin has spent a year investigating the case of part-time FBI operatives John and Rosemary Summers and the suspicious conclusion to their last mission. Recent intelligence hints they may not have died in the European plane crash, but he needs the help of the Summerses' grown children, Jaden, Quinn, and twenty-one-year-old Avalin, to find out. At the family meeting, Ian presents evidence that suggests their parents may have escaped capture and fled to Portugal. The siblings' lives are turned upside down when they learn their parents were working as undercover agents. Hoping they are alive, Quinn and Avalin eagerly join Ian in his search. When they land in Lisbon, they are bombarded with even more uncertainties. Thrown together by circumstances fraught with danger, betrayal, and heartache, Ian and Avalin uncover something special in each other. As events unfold, Ian and Avalin begin to question their beliefs in their government, their families, and even God as they look for someone they can trust. Will they find love on their journey together? Will they discover what happened to the Summerses' parents before it's too late? Find out in Second Chance, a Summers Saga novel.(Goodreads) I really enjoyed reading Second Chance. Though the beginning moved a little slow, the story picked up as it was laced with action scenes and romance. The characters were easy to connect with and I enjoyed getting to know more about them as the book went on. The book also had many surprises and scenes that kept me on the edge of my seat. I also appreciated the morals and values the book had to offer because many teen books do not use these values. The ending was semi-predictable in the sweetest and most romantic way possible. All in all I enjoyed the book and will place it back on my shelf to be read again and again. Fantasybooklover's rating:
