The Second Chance Cafe - Alison Kent ★★★☆ 3.5 StarsGrowing up in foster care has made Kaylie self reliant to the extreme. She returns to Hope Springs... to the only place she has ever called home, a large three storey Victorian which she plans on turning into a café. She immediately sets about renovating the house with the help of Ten, a local contractor. Anyone who reads contemporary romance will know there are some themes you'll see time and time again. Renovations; restaurants; returned servicemen; handymen / contractors; cooking; hard-headed business women; and women who have suffered a difficult past. This book has all of that, and at times it felt like a bit too much. The basic story...Kaylie and Ten, Mitch and Luna were what this story was about and some of that other stuff was a bit distracting. Many thanks to Amazon Publishing and Netgalley for providing me with this ARC
