It's all about that second chance...The Butterfly Garden is Book Six of That Second Chance Series. (These are stand-alone stories tied together by a common theme- belief in the beauty of that second chance.) Sometimes love happens when you least expect it...Jenny Romano has never been a white-picket-fence, happily-ever-after girl. Despite a mother who rejected her free-spirited, unique ways as irresponsible and just plain wrong, Jenny has found happiness as a photographer, flitting around the country and snapping photos of other people's lives. Her older sister, Grace, has a husband, children, and a carpool schedule. She's the one their mother calls "perfect." But when tragedy strikes her sister's carefully constructed life, Jenny must step in and offer support. Soon, she finds herself in the sort of small-town suburban life she swore to avoid...Psychologist Elliot Drake spends so much time healing other people's pain and witnessing the backlash of caring too deeply that he prefers to keep his own relationships short and bittersweet. He's loved and lost once and with a young daughter to raise, he's not willing to risk his heart again. But he's never met anyone quite like Jenny. Outrageous and unpredictable, she's a force of nature-not at all like her well-controlled older sister. Suddenly, Elliot isn't so sure that short-term is what he wants...Taken by surprise and unsure of the next step, Elliot and Jenny are about to discover that real life happens whether you want it to or not. Will they let real love happen, too?That Second Chance Series:Book One: Pulling Home - (Also prequel to A Family Affair: The Promise) Book Two: The Way They Were - (Also prequel to A Family Affair: The Secret)Book Three: Simple Riches - (Also prequel to A Family Affair: Winter) Book Four: Paradise Found - (Also prequel to A Family Affair: The Wish)Book Five: Not Your Everyday Housewife - (Also prequel to A Family Affair: The Gift)Book Six: The Butterfly Garden - (Also prequel to A Family Affair: The Return)

About the Author

Mary Campisi should have known she'd become a writer when at age thirteen she began changing the ending 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 keeping up with the lives of five adult children, Mary's digging in the dirt with her flowers and herbs, cooking, reading, walking her rescue Lab mix, Cooper, or on the perfect day, riding off into the sunset with her very own "hero" husband on his Ultra Limited aka Harley.

Mary has published with Kensington, Carina Press, and The Wild Rose Press.

I really enjoyed it for the most part. Very believable characters.Very well written. Keeps your interest untill the end. I could see this as a 'made for tv' movie.

This is a very believable story. The characters are believable, flaws and all. How past issues can keep cropping up and influencing your life, and revisiting past insecurities whether painful or happy are very real issues that we all deal with. Well done Ms Campisi.
