Review: Second Chances in Camelot by Donna Marie

Second Chances in Camelot


The end of Julia Belden's marriage came as no surprise. Although it began for a pregnancy, she and Carl stayed married for 10 years. Their only emotional connection was a baby who did not survive past one day. After two years of grieving for his wife, Nick Sitello kept busy while teaching high school math and raising Sammy. Romance never entered his mind until his encounter with Julia while on a weekend getaway. It was a timely moment when she tumbled into the water just as he and his son coasted by in their rowboat. As he helped her from the lake, the attraction was immediate. Nick questioned Julia's love when Carl reentered her life. He was protective of his feelings but most of his son's. Julia was torn between her new relationship and an obligation to Carl as childhood ghosts returned to haunt him, vindicating his distant nature while married.


It's a very good contemporary fiction about second chances, love, mending the fences, and healing from old wounds. I think that it's very well-written and I liked all the characters. I enjoyed reading it and would recommend it to those who like contemporary stories about love and family.
Julia and Carl are recently divorced. She had just moved to her father's vacation home when she meets Nick. Nick is a single dad and a widower. He liked Julia right from the beginning and as the two spend more time together they slowly fall in love. However, there are things in their pasts that are still haunting them and they are reluctant to take a leap of faith.
Nick's wife had died leaving him to care for his only son. Julia's ex-husband Carl is having trouble and she feels that she must help him. Especially since there is no one else in his life who would do it. But what will it mean for her and Nick?
There are pasts scars that are haunting these characters. Their stories are intertwined and their fates too. Will things get better for all three of them or will they destroy each other's lives? These are some of the questions that are answered in this sweet, romantic, and emotional novel.
All in all, it's a great read. I found it highly entertaining and I think others will enjoy it too.
P.S. I received a complimentary copy of this book.
