What do you do when life doesn’t go as planned?
Nobody plans to be abused. Emma Dunn certainly didn’t. When life with her fiance’ takes a terrifying turn, she flees to her hometown of Chicago without looking back, and her brother Kevin takes her in. Life is slowly getting better for Emma, thanks in no small part to real-life Prince Charming, Nathan Weber. He sweeps her off her feet, almost literally, and dotes on her from day one.
But when the unexpected happens and their pasts catch up with them, can their fairy tale still have a happy ending?
Even the strongest can break. Love has the power to consume, but also has the power to break.

A Lucky Second Chance is Nickie’s debut novel and I do have to admit she did a pretty good job with this book. It was sweet read and I hardly ever wanted to put the book down, unless I really had to get back to that thing they call “LIFE”.
The book’s main characters are Emma and Nathan. There were moments in the book where I wanted to knock some sense into Emma, I mean how can a peeping Tom not be something to be worried about? And then there were also moments where you kind of felt bad for her. Then there is Nathan, sweet, sweet Nathan Weber. There were many times in the book where I caught myself wondering where I could find a man like Nathan. I think I have added him to my book-boyfriend list.
Emma has a great family in the book too. I loved the relationship that Emma had with her big brother Kevin. He was just the best brother in the whole world and would do anything to help Emma out. Her mother would probably have been the character I would have liked the least in the whole book.
One thing I might have changed with the book is the timing. It sometimes felt like the book was moving too fast and I would have saved the Jason (Emma’s ex fiance) part of the story for the ending of the book. After Emma’s and Jason’s story was “over” it kind of felt like the “thrill” of the story was gone. It kept me wondering how Nickie would continue the story. She did do a good job of picking up the story and giving it a happy ending.
