Taking A Chance On Love is a contemporary novel following three women and their different views on relationships.
Polly lives with her partner Fraser and their grown-up son Cody; she works part-time in a travel agency and strongly believes in supporting her extended family.
Carmen owns a wedding dress boutique; she has been Elliot’s partner for eight years and dreams about his marriage proposal.
Dana is a single mum who wants to return to dating. She applies to a new television reality show about finding the perfect partner.
The story slips back and forth between the busy lives of all three women, but as it progresses the author brings them together. Reading about Polly’s life left me just as exhausted as she was at the end of each day. While I thought I had correctly guessed the Carmen’s tale, I was pleased with how it ended. Dana had my complete empathy with her delightful son and I am glad that her story ended the way that it did.
Overall, a fun read in a popular genre which touches on lots of modern family themes.
