'Another wonderfully warm novel with characters you'd like to know' - Coventry Evening Telegraph
Ginny Porter and Joan Flynn were born within days of each other in adjoining houses in a narrow street of two-up two-downs in Liverpool. They've been friends since they were toddlers and now they've become young ladies and left school. Joan finds work at Dunlop's tyre factory, while Ginny's dream comes true when she is taken on as a counter assistant at Woolworths. But things don't work out as she had expected, and she carries around a dark secret...
What readers are saying about Taking a Chance on Love:
'Yet again Joan was right about needing a half box of Kleenex!! Not just for the crying but for the laughing... I love all her books and her characters are so real and the stories totally enthralling'
'Whether in laughter, or sadness, this book had me crying all the way through. There's something about Joan Jonker's style that really appeals to me, maybe it's the way this book will appeal to everyone, or just the way the characters are so beautifully brought to life... Whichever, this book carries on the Joan tradition of writing that draws you in gently, until you can't put the book down, but have to know what happens next'
