Jane Green, author of the best-sellers The Love Verb and The Beach House, examines love, life, and friendships in her moving and entertaining novel Second Chance. Holly Macintosh is sitting round her kitchen table with her oldest friends - friends she hasn't seen since school - now reunited by an unexpected tragedy and catching up on the past 20 years. On the surface, they are all successful and happy. But scratch a little deeper after that extra glass of wine and it's not quite so straightforward: Paul and Anna are struggling to have a baby, Saffron the actress is still waiting for that really big break that - at 39 - is looking less and less likely, and Olivia, always the wallflower of the group, is newly single and mourning her lost love. And what about Holly Mac? Can she and her husband Marcus get their marriage back on track for the sake of the children? Or has someone just come back into her life who will change everything forever? 'A corker of a story' Heat 'Witty and wise ...another winner' Daily Express 'Will keep you entertained to the last page' Cosmopolitan www.janegreen.com Jane Green's novels, including The Other Woman, The Patchwork Marriage (published as Another Piece of My Heart in the USA), Jemima J. , Babyville, Girl Friday (Dune Road), Life Swap (Swapping Lives), Spellbound (To Have and to Hold), Second Chance, Straight Talking, Mr. Maybe, and Bookends, are as moving as they are funny and have achieved best-seller status internationally.

From AudioFile:

After the prologue introduces four characters, were dropped directly into the story of their reconnecting after twenty years. Rosalyn Landor gives us a toehold by defining each person and giving us enough emotion to engage us. Her voice is breezy as Holly tells of her perfect life and falters as she relates Olivias lack of success in love and commerce. As Saffron, her sentences are clipped, hinting at secrecy. Gradually, we begin to understand their shared history and their grief at the sudden death of a dear friend. As Green depicts how this event propels each to change, the story is predictable, but Landors lively switching of viewpoints keeps the listening enjoyable.
