Emily’s Chance by Sharon Gillenwater

Emily Rose may be in the tiny West Texas town of Callahan Crossing for the moment, but it's just a rung on her ladder to success. Her work at the Callahan Crossing Historical Museum will look good on her ever-growing resume as she attempts to break into the prestigious world of a big city museum curator. Little does she know that cowboy and contractor Chance Callahan has decided that he can convince her to stay--both with the town and with him. As he helps Emily restore the town's history after a devastating fire, can he help her uncover the value of love? Endorsements "Filled with Texas charm and the healing power of love."--Debbie Macomber, #1 New York Times bestselling author "A sweet yet heartbreaking story of hope and healing. Gillenwater's talent for dialogue gives her characters an authentic feel."--Romantic Times, 4 stars, for Jenna's Cowboy Here is my review of this wonderfully romantic western: I would like to say “Thank you” to Sharon
