Three Times a Charm by author Jean Stone transports readers back to West Hope and into the lives of the four women, and one lone man of Second Chances. If as a reader, you have not read the previous titles in this series I suggest you start at the beginning, as you will not want to miss an installment of this well written womenís fiction series.

Three Times a Charm takes readers back into all the character's lives, but the primary focus is on Jo and her burgeoning relationship with Andrew, and Sarah's long-term relationship with partner Jason.

Jo and Andrew are on the threshold of a new relationship and full of the glow that comes with the discovery of one anotherís likes and dislikes. Both Jo and Andrew have been hurt by prior relationships and must learn to trust in their love. Needless to say, this will not be easy or uncomplicated.

Sara and Jason on the other hand have had a long-standing relationship. They come from two very different lifestyles, and now each is being called back to their roots. Whether or not they can rekindle their relationship will depend a lot on Sarah and some issues from her past that were not exactly as she has believed for years.

To see how these relationships evolve and what happens to Sarah and Jo you will have to read for yourselves.

I believe Jean Stone is a much-overlooked author. I feel as though her writing is easy to follow, and her characters while uncomplicated have the depth that allows you to feel as though they could be your neighbors. Ms. Stone has the innate ability to draw readers in to her story and keep them reading until the last page is turned.
