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?

"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 Gillenwater and her publisher for sending me a copy of "Emily's Chance" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

"Emily's Chance" is book 2 in "The Callahans of Texas" series by Sharon Gillenwater. In this wonderful novel, Chance Callahan has fallen head-over-heels for Emily, a museum curator who has come to Callahan's Crossing to go through articles being put aside to create a museum of the town's history. Chance has even concocted a way to keep Emily in Callahan's Crossing so that he has the opportunity to woo her.

But Chance's reputation as a heartbreaker and Emily's own disfunctional family and love relationships have jaded her ideas about love and romance. Will Chance have the opportunity to prove that he and his intentions are real? Or will Emily run away from true love to pursue the career that she believes will give her all the fulfillment she needs.

This wonderful romance will entertain, encourage, and make the reader examine their own trust issues. This is a terrific novel that I highly recommend.
