I’m not sure about you, but I’ve failed a LOT of things the first time.
And sometimes you don’t get a second chance! When we’ve all got a limited time on this Earth – you kinda want to get most of it right – the first time!
The Second Chance Supper Club was chock full of possible do-overs and second chances and packed with ALL the emotions!
But I think my most favorite part was the trio of women that carried this story. All three in different, tough situations but all three were also strong and pretty awesome… they just needed a bit of a second chance. A do-over. A change. Or a fresh start.
Julia and Ginny, estranged sisters, come together after years of not speaking when Julia shows up on Ginny’s doorstep asking for help. Ginny, a bit bitter of the past, realizes that she might need to suck it up and put her big girl panties on, cause, well, she kinda needs help, too. Rounding out this trio is Ginny’s daughter Olive, who is just starting her life, but a bit resentful of her mother holding her back.
I felt like these ladies could be my friends. I wanted to help them, to hug them, and I rooted for them all to figure out their differences and work together to achieve their individual goals. But will the pain of the past and grudges of the present tear them even farther apart?
Really fun read for me. There’s nothing worse than spending your life doing “have-tos” when we should all be doing our “want-tos” I LOVE a good comeback story and this one is heartwarming, funny, and totally relatable!
And make sure you’ve got plenty of snacks when you dive into this one cause all the delicious food descriptions will make you super hungry!!

About the Book:
Two estranged sisters reunite in an emotional novel of family, forgiveness, lost hope, and new beginnings.
They had a forever bond, until a sudden tragedy thrust them apart. Now, each at a crossroad in her own life, two sisters’ paths are about to intersect.
Broadcast journalist Julia Frank has it all: a career, an ambitious fiancé, and the hard-won respect of her peers. Until a ruinous decision destroys her reputation, puts her job at risk, and sends her reeling toward the only soul left to turn to: her estranged sister, Ginny.
The owner of a clandestine supper club hidden in the Arizona desert, Ginny Frank has a lot on her plate. The last thing she wants is more drama—or the burden of nursing her younger sister’s wounded ego. But family is family. Besides, Ginny can use the help in more ways than one, and she’s going to make sure Julia pulls her weight.
As a tenuous reunion reopens old wounds, Julia and Ginny have no choice but to confront the pain and betrayals of the past. Will working to keep the secret supper club running be just what they need to find common ground and a path toward forgiveness, or will the increasing stress push them even further apart?
