"Taking a Chance on Love" by Rachel Jones

Book Info: From childhood, Virginia Manning has planned for a career as a concert clarinetist. Blindsided by family circumstances, her plans are interrupted, taking her down a path she would never have chosen. As a music teacher, Virginia’s relationship with the football coach goes from problematic to romantic. After Blake’s brush with death, a scared Virginia runs away looking for the contentment music has always brought to her life. 

Because Blake Oliver has experienced disappointment and pain, he opts for a fresh start in a small New England town. Accepting the position of football coach, he isn’t looking for love when it finds him. But when Virginia leaves to pursue a performance career, Blake realizes it’s not where you live but having someone to love that matters. His only problem is making her understand that as well.

My Review
"Taking a Chance on Love" by Rachel Jones is a sweet story about love and if  the risk is worth taking.  I really enjoyed this story from the first chapter to the end. This is what my Facebook status said after reading the first chapter "You know the next book you are reading is going to be a tear jerker but a great love story when the first chapter starts out with a character at the grave site of her father because her mother cannot place the flowers there because she is dying of cancer and a man runs into her and they fall!"
                                                                                                                                  This story is about a football coach and a music lover who had dreams of becoming a concert clarinetist who meet and at first are at odds with each other.  There are twists and turns that makes this reader hope they can beat the odds and live happily ever after. But can they with their different backgrounds and interests?

This story does tear at your heart strings  but that is what makes a great story. 

This book is a clean romance and is not classified as a Christian read but I must warn my blog readers that only read Christian reads, that the word, ( another word for donkey is used and does not mean the animal) is used once in the book. I would still recommend this book.

Can football and music mix, read "Taking a Chance on Love" by Rachel Jones and you might be surprised.

I have given "Taking a Chance on Love" by Rachel Jones five stars.

I was given a copy by the author for my honest review. These opinions are mine own.
