Imogen Browne longs to make up for past mistakes before she can move on. She quietly resolves to help the Dorazio family, whose lives she accidentally upset. Her biggest challenge is Asher, the one person who may never forgive her. And he is facing a crisis of his own. Imogen must tread very carefully, as trying to fix things may well make them shatter. A sensitive story about misplaced loyalty, celebrating life and falling in love. Can family secrets concealed with the best intentions bear the light of day?
My Review:A family reeling from the consequences of an accident fifteen years ago, a young man dealing with a crisis and the effect it has on his girlfriend, and then there’s Imogen.
From the moment I started reading, I was intrigued by Imogen. She has a secret. And I didn’t get to find out what it was until near the end so I had to keep reading. Nice!
I also liked the complexities of the characters. The Dorazio family (and Kaitlyn, Asher’s girlfriend), came across as real people, with a believable amount of conflict and tension between them. I enjoyed how each of them reacted and behaved in their own distinctly different styles.
Cancer is not an easy subject to tackle. In my opinion, Paula has done it well, showing the effects of this insidious disease on friends and family. Despite this, Imogen’s Chance is by no means a depressing or negative story. Asher’s (and Imogen’s) spiritual journey is full of hope as they fight his illness together, and of course, the unfolding of their growing attraction for each other is lovely to watch.
Oh, and the ‘thank you’ notes were a humorous and poignant touch, exactly what I expected from Asher. You’ll understand when you get there J
Imogen’s Chance is another uplifting and enjoyable story by Paula Vince.
