Nursing Second Chances by Maggie Greene
Nursing Second Chances by Maggie Greene follows two main characters, Kiersten and Charles and their interwoven story lines. Kiersten Hart vowed never to return to her hometown after a bad experience during high school, but is forced to put those feelings aside when her sister is widowed and left alone to raise two kiddos alone. Reluctantly, Kiersten leaves her big city job and returns to her old stomping grounds to help her sister out … although she insists that it is only temporary. She takes a job as a school nurse, and it is there that she meets diabetic child Jason, the son of Charles Webber. The two share an instant attraction but they both have their own hang ups about falling in love. It eventually takes something drastic to bring the characters to a point where they are able to finally go with what is in their hearts.
I found Nursing Second Chances to be a heart warming romance and found the characters to be sweet. I loved the chemistry between Kiersten and Charles and I always knew that it was only a matter of time before we saw them end up together. I also absolutely fell in love with Jason … although I do wish that the trio of characters had more “family” time together as a cohesive unit, and that we could see more interaction between Kiersten and him. The other major complaint that I had was Kiersten’s constant reminder to Charles about only staying in town temporarily. I felt like she was pretty much the sole reason for keeping the two of them apart for so long, but I guess that it wouldn’t be a love story if there wasn’t an obstacle. Overall, the story was sweet, just wish it was a little more in depth and provided a little more interaction.
