Publisher's Summary

Nichole is caught in a tough position, juggling too many responsibilities as her world falls apart around her. When her mother turns up missing while performing an errand, Nichole is left picking up the pieces of her shattered life and taking care of her younger siblings. She isn't sure where she can turn to for help and she is facing a lot of harsh realities about how life works.

Richard wants to help Nichole through this heartbreaking situation, but he discovers that he's been doing the right things for the wrong reasons for a long time. Everything begins to fall apart as he realizes he's swept problems under the rug for so long he might no longer be able to fix them.

Can they overcome their own prejudices and get a second chance?

Second Chances is a contemporary novel set in middle America that delves into social issues people deal with on a regular basis. It features a strong female protagonist standing up to the world and pushing back against commonplace wrongs.

    Story
    "Heartfelt and meaningful"
    Would you listen to Second Chances again? Why?

    I didn't really expect there to be so much emotion in this story. I would definitely listen again because I'm sure there were parts I missed that are important to what happened.


    What other book might you compare Second Chances to, and why?

    Anything by Nicholas Sparks, or anyone who adds a lot of emotion to their story. It was kind of unique.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Probably when Ben was going through his life and how he got where he is. That scene made me really sad.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yeah. It isn't too long, but it has a lot in it that makes it unique.

    "Second Chances:"

    I found the story to be one of growing to know yourself, the things that are truly important in life. Family, friends and people that really care. We all need help and understanding at some point in our life.

    Any additional comments?

    I received a free audio book in exchange for an honest review.

    Having listened to Lincoln Cole's books before, I was expecting something really good, and I did receive something amazing. This isn't the normal type of novel that I read, or listen to, but it was brilliant. Seeing the novel from Nicole and Richard's perspectives made it so much deeper and personal and brilliant and I'm so glad I read this novel.

    Story
    "Well Crafted Story With Real World Situations"

    I grew up in lily white Iowa, so I don't realize the situations some families face. When the story started at what appears to be a bigoted, white school district I am afraid I won't enjoy this book at all. But I kept listening and was sucked into the story, the author knows how to tell a story. The narrator does a masterful job of just the right amount of inflection for the various characters. It's only as I write this review that I realize how similar my own life was to the characters in the story. My dad died before I turned five, my mother had a nervous breakdown and became an alcoholic. Mom remarried when I was nine and stopped drinking with the help of my stepdad. My stepdad didn't know how to deal with the frustrations of his business, and often unloaded on me for small infractions. I too miss him, even though he was rough on me. Great story, don't miss it.

    "Lots of emotion in this well-told story"
    What did you love best about Second Chances?

    I loved the way the characters all had flaws but worked really hard to overcome them.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Second Chances?

    Probably when the secretary berates Richard for being so stubborn.


    What does Sarah Carleton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She brings a lot more emotion than even the book has on its own, and considering how emotional the content is that is saying a lot!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Something about how everyone deserves to get a second chance.

    Story
    "Moving and touching story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yeah, I definitely would recommend it because it was really touching in the way it handled issues between people. I like the way the characters interacted with one another.


    What did you like best about this story?

    There was a lot of emotion here that I didn't expect when I first started, particularly toward the end.


    What does Sarah Carleton bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She handled the important scenes perfectly and really made me feel for the characters.


    Who was the most memorable character of Second Chances and why?

    Richard because he changes so much in the story. I didn't know what to think of him at first, but by the end he does the right thing.


    Any additional comments?

    Great story to listen to!
