She took a dare and fell in love. Truth would have been the smarter choice.
After years of living under her father’s thumb, Emmeline is ready to break free. She’s abandoned her life as a New York socialite to follow her dream of becoming a kindergarten teacher in a small, wholesome town. Seeing the man that nearly broke her was absolutely not what she had hoped to find in Prescott, Montana.
Nick hasn’t seen his Emmy in nine years, but that doesn’t mean he’s forgotten a thing about the woman he loves. After just one blissful night as man and wife, he gave her up, sacrificing his own happiness to keep her safe—far away from him. But the moment she walks back into his lonely life is the moment he decides never to let her go again. He won’t waste his second chance. All he has to do is win back Emmeline’s heart, keep her safe from the shadows in his past and prove to her that taking a wager on him is a sure bet.

5 Passionate Stars for The Clover Chapel!
5 passionate stars for The Clover Chapel.
I love that Emmy has a backbone. I love strong women in books. She isn't just going to take Nick back because he's sorry and wants her back...and because he looks okay. Fine, more than okay, but I digress.
Now Nick and Emmy together...gahhh. love. My favorite quote, "When we first met, I called you Emmy once. You corrected me and said you hated that nickname. But that wasn't true. You didn't want me to call you Emmy because it was already his." They're just too perfect.
And of course, as is true with all Devney books, there's a fun twist just when you get comfortable. Don't think it's all rainbows and butterflies.
What happens in Vegas
Loved Nick and Emmy! They get married in Vegas and when Emmy wakes up Nick is gone. Fast forward nine years and Nick is the fire chief and Emmy moves to Prescott to be the new kindergarten teacher. Mystery and suspense is found in spades in this second chance at love novel! Devney Perry is my new auto buy! Love this series!
