REVIEW: Susan Schild knocked it out of the ballpark with Sweet Carolina Gals the third book in the “A Second Chance at Love Series”. They just get better and better. I loved this one! There is so much going on. I am never bored when I read one of Susan’s books but, this one will keep you turning the pages to see what is happening with these ladies next.
This book starts out with Linnie on her honeymoon with that hunk of a vet named Jack in the middle of a white water rafting trip. Let me tell you right now, it is just the beginning of this rollercoaster of a ride book. Linnie’s mom and her lady friends are busily planning that cross country RV trip. Sounds like fun. Right? I mean, what kind of trouble can four senior women get into? Well…hang onto your hats!
These characters are so much fun! They will give you all the feels. You will laugh out loud, shed a tear, say a few prayers and sigh with happiness when you turn the last page of the story. So much happens. So much needed to happen. I can’t say enough about how much I have enjoyed this series. If you haven’t started reading it yet, I assure you, you don’t want to miss out on all the fun. I devoured this book in twenty-four hours. I can’t wait for more from Susan Schild.
Susan writes the best Later in Life Southern Fiction. I just can’t get enough! She is one of those authors I don’t even need to read the synopsis to know I want to read the book. They are down home, heartwarming and just plain fun. If you’ve read any of Susan’s books, you know what I mean. If you haven’t, jump on the wagon and join the fun!

SYNOPSIS: USA Today Bestselling Author Susan Schild welcomes you back to Willow Hill, North Carolina for another heartwarming story about love and adventure after 40.
After her late husband’s bad behavior, Linny Taylor was sure she’d never find love again, but she’s met and married a lovely man, Jack Avery, Willow Hill’s kindly veterinarian. But newlywed life has as much churn and thrills as the white-water rafting trip Jack persuades her to take for their honeymoon.
Jack’s twelve-year-old son is not sure he wants a stepmother, her snooty mother-in-law doesn’t think Linny is good enough for her son, and Jack’s glamorous – and manipulative – ex-wife does not seem to want to let go of him.
Linny’s own mother, Dottie, is ready for adventure, and begs her to tag along on with her girlfriends for a free-wheeling RV adventure. Linny joins the newbie campers as they motor across the USA. From helping a senior gal find a husband online to rescuing her church lady Mama from a brush with the law, Linny can’t believe women of a certain age can get into so much trouble and be so much fun!
For all the twists and turns of marrying after 40, Linny finds her new life is fuller—and more joyful—than she ever imagined.
Readers everywhere have fallen in love with the heartwarming and humorous Second Chance at Love Series, and you will too!
