It's all about that second chance...

Sometimes we're lucky enough to get that second chance-in life and in love. Pulling Home is a stand-alone story of a strong woman who battles heartache and loss with courage and determination to find new paths and true love. This is book one of That Second Chance series. It is also the prequel to Mary's bestselling family saga, A Family Affair: The Promise, Truth in Lies, Book Seven.

She'll risk anything to save her child...even the truth.
It's taken nine years and a cross-country move, but Audra Valentine Wheyton has kept her secrets safe. She's created the perfect life: a husband who loves her, a daughter she adores, and a position as head writer for an award-winning daytime soap. When her husband dies suddenly, Audra returns to her hometown for the funeral and faces a community that has not forgotten her meager beginnings and the man who has never forgiven her for marrying his brother.

Jack Wheyton is a successful pediatric neurosurgeon who is about to become engaged when Audra walks back into his life with her daughter. He forgave his brother long ago for taking something that had been his, something he hadn't even realized he wanted until it was gone. But forgiving Audra is another story...and forgetting her? Near impossible.When a shattering illness strikes Audra's daughter, she turns to Jack to save her child and risks exposing a secret that will change their lives forever.

About the Author

Mary Campisi should have known she'd become a writer when at age thirteen she began changing the endings to all the books she read. It took several years and a number of jobs, including registered nurse, receptionist in a swanky hair salon, accounts payable clerk, and practice manager in an OB/GYN office, for her to rediscover writing. Enter a mouse-less computer, a floppy disk, and a dream large enough to fill a zip drive. The rest of the story lives on in every book she writes.

When she's not working on her craft or following the lives of five young adult children, Mary's digging in the dirt with her flowers and herbs, cooking, reading, walking her rescue lab mix, Cooper, or on the prefect day, riding off into the sunset with her very own "hero" husband, on his Electra Glide Classic aka Harley.

Mary has been published with Kensington, Carina Press, The Wild Rose Press, and Jocelyn Hollow Romance.

Great novel. It begins on a sad note; many family complications. However, the ending is beautiful. Love always prevail.

I really like this author as just recently read her first two books in the Family Affair (Truth in Lies Series)—highly recommend, and Pushing Home (Second Chance Book #1) which can be a standalone, was included as a preview in the e-book. The story had a number of twists, secrets, and turns from tragedy to hot sex. A story of misunderstandings, redemption, second chances and love. Audra, a head writer for a famous soap opera, returns home (to a town where everyone hates due to her family history), after her husband Christian dies with her eight year old daughter. Her daughter has a very serious illness and she has to put aside her feelings for Jack (the surgeon) - -Christian’s brother with who she had an affair with years ago. She also sets on a journey to find her father for the family medical history which is needed for her daughter. A heartfelt story of family secrets and drama and look forward to reading more from this author!

I had so many mixed feelings about this book. The writing is well done, but the author seemed to forget the name of the SOAP that was featured; sometimes it was referred to as On Eden Place, sometimes Eden Street, and others as Lifetime. Speaking of SOAPs, this book is a SOAP, way to much drama for me. And, the lies are over the top, even at the end. The lies and the over dramatic SOAPoratic drama left me unsatisfied with this story.

It was a bit predictable, and yet far-fetched in that the main character never really stood up for herself. But I still give it a 3-star rating.

This story had a few twists and turns. It was emotionally charged and I loved Audra's courage as she loses a husband, almost loses a child, a rediscover s a love she thought had died years ago.
