Kurzbeschreibung

22. Mai 2014
Pam Matterson knew something was familiar about Dorothy Durham the first time she met her. It was her eyes. She had the same eyes of a woman Pam had been in love with in college. As Pam gets to know Dorothy she finds out that Dorothy is, in fact, the mother of Casey Durham, the woman Pam had been in love with. Dorothy is also in an abusive relationship with Casey's father, Bob. Pam works for an organization that specializes in getting women like Dorothy out of their abusive relationships and on with their lives. Pam promises to help Dorothy in anyway she can, so when Dorothy calls and asks Pam to come get her after a particularly brutal beating by her husband. Pam rushes to Dorothy's rescue. Pam realizes that by placing Dorothy under her protection, she will be forced to face Casey again. She knows it is not going to be a good meeting because she hurt Casey badly when they were in college. Hopefully, Casey will give her a chance to explain what she was going through at the time. Maybe, Casey will forgive her for all the pain Pam caused her. Casey Durham is retiring from professional basketball after five injury filled years. She is moving back to Nashville to start her residency as an orthopedic surgeon at her alma mater, Vanderbilt University. She is looking forward to being back in Nashville, but she is hoping to avoid Pam Benton Matterson. She had been completely in love with Pam in college, and had even given up her wild ways with women for Pam. But Pam had not given Casey a chance to prove how much she loved her and it had broken Casey's heart into little pieces. Dorothy seemingly disappears sending Casey and her brothers into a panic. They are terrified that their father has done something to her. After seeing a report on the news about her disappearance, Dorothy calls the kids to assure them she is okay. Casey wants to see her mother before she has to return to Memphis, where she had been playing basketball, to get the rest of her stuff. Dorothy's legal advisor, Pam makes arrangements for Casey to meet Dorothy at her office. When Casey arrives at Pam's office and is introduced to Pam by her mother, the temperature drops in the room from the cold stare Casey gives Pam. Even Dorothy notices the difference in the demeanor of the two women. Casey can't believe Pam is her mother's legal advisor. Pam prays Casey will not take her off Dorothy's case. Will the two of them be able to put the past behind them and do what's best for Dorothy? Will Casey listen to Pam's story about the past and forgive her? Is there still any love for Pam left in Casey's heart? Read this story to find out what happens when Casey finds out that things weren't always as they appeared.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Ganz nette, aber vorhersehbare Geschichte 20. Oktober 2014
Von BenGun
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
M.E. Tudor ist mit "Suddenly" ein sehr gutes Buch gelungen. Second Chances reicht meines Erachtens nicht ganz an Suddenly heran.
Casey und Pam verliebten sich an der Uni einander, wurden jedoch nie ein Paar. Casey war der Star des Basketball Teams und nicht besonders wählerisch mit ihren Frauen.Als sie sich in Pam verliebt, schwört sie, sich zu ändern. Pam weist sie nach nur einem Kuss ab. Casey bricht darauf jede Verbindung mit Pam ab und erfährt deshalb nie, warum Pam sie zurückgewiesen hatte.
Einige Jahre später treffen sie sich wieder. Casey musste ihre Karriere als Basketball Profi aufgeben und wird Ärztin. Pam ist Rechtsbeistand in einer Organisation, die sich um misshandelte Frauen kümmert. Pam hilft Caseys Mutter sich von ihrem brutalen Ehemann zu befreien. Dadurch kommen Pam und Casey wieder in Kontakt. Nach anfänglichem Zögern ist die alte Leidenschaft wieder da und sie verlieben sich erneut. Doch können sie diese Mal zueinander finden?
Eine insgesamt recht vorhersehbare Story ohne wirkliche Höhepunkte. Die dramatische Wendung mit Pams Unfall gegen Ende hätte es meines Erachtens nicht bedurft. Das Buch enthält eine ausführliche Sexszene.
Leider auch diverse Schreib- und Grammatikfehler.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Amateurish and heavy handed 21. Juni 2014
Von Jaskolka - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The story spent too much time explaining itself, and every little tidbit of information in a piece of dialogue, every time. Even the slightest opportunity for a bit of suspense or surprise or a twist was ruined by "sense of foreboding" felt by whoever was nearby. Lots of repeated words, as if the author, using a word once, got excited about how good it sounded and felt the need to use it again, right away. Lack of editing was painful, at least twice instead of possessive "your" there was a "you're", and oh my, did it hurt. I did finish reading it, mostly because I read fast and don't like to leave things unfinished. Find a better book.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Poor grammar distracting 16. Juli 2014
Von Book Bum Barb - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
It's a shame when storytelling good enough to make me finish reading this book is so overshadowed by poor grammar that it will probably disuade me from reading this author's future work.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointing 1. August 2014
Von TerryB - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Pam Matterson had loved Casey Durham from a distance in college. Circumstances tore them apart. Pam wasn't in a position to pursue her love for Casey and they parted before even beginning a relationship.

Years later, Pam goes to Kentucky to save Dorothy Durham, Casey's mother, from her abusive husband. Pam knows that in all probability her path will cross with Casey's. Deep down she's excited with the prospect of meeting Casey again, but at the same time she is also dreading it. She hurt Casey deeply and has no idea how Casey will react to seeing her again.

Casey Durham is moving from Memphis back to Nashville to begin her residency as an orthopedic surgeon. The last person Casey expects or wants to see is Pam. Why would she want to see her when her love was rebuffed and Pam walked away?

Pam and Casey do eventually meet and are in a situation where they have to interact together for the good of Casey's family. Old feelings come rushing back to both women. Will it be too late for them to have the all consuming love denied to them both back in college?

This is the first book I've read by M.E Tudor. The idea of the story was excellent, unfortunately, the writing wasn't. I found it repetitive, stilted and amateurish, almost childlike. There were numerous typos throughout. Not just one or two here and there, but far too many to even begin to count. For example, the word where instead of were is used on more than one occasion, heals instead of heels, also boutique of flowers instead of bouquet, plus many, many others. Well, you get the picture. This pulled me right out of the story.

The two main characters, Pam and Casey just didn't seem to have that spark between them that would normally be simmering away waiting to be ignited in a good romance. I know there were numerous problems they had to contend with, but even so, I expected a bit more passion there.

It's a shame that M.E Tudor used a bad editor. With a good editor and some good beta readers, this could have been a much better book. The synopsis drew me in to buying the book. It sounded different from the usual romance novels. Unfortunately, it just didn't deliver and for the price here in the UK, it's certainly not value for money.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Seize those second chances! 6. September 2014
Von Kentucky Quacker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Author M.E. Tudor tackles serious issues of domestic violence and spousal abuse as well as family shunning of a lesbian offspring adding depth to a same-sex romance novel. Her characters are realistically depicted as a competent paralegal and an orthopedic surgeon instead of the fantasy billionaire or paranormal idealized love affair. “Second Chances” doesn’t fit the formula of boy meets girl or vampire of his/her dreams and lives happily ever after with a closet full of designer shoes. The reader’s sympathy goes to Dorothy Dunham, mother and grandmother, who is fleeing from a chronic wife-beater and police officer protected by his shield. The well-constructed storyline is marred by some typographical errors and would have benefitted from stringent copyedits before publication.

4.0 von 5 Sternen We all should have friends like this. 2. Juli 2014
Von Kindle Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I would like to explain my rating. I have literally just finished this book and I really enjoyed it. But, aside from a well told story I am saddened to discover that there were many typographical errors in the entire book. that is the only reason I am giving it just four stars.
I really became invested in the story and had to finish it before I started reading anything else. It held my attention from the very beginning and didn't let go until the end. I would like to tell M.E.Tudor only one thing, when writing Novels/Books like this for the E-community have your proof reader and whoever else triple check that it is not going to be corrupted/changed by the transition from paper firm to this form.
I would also recommend this story about how fate can be kind to us all if we could just open our eye's to the possibilities of love and happiness. If you like a good love story read this and get some tissues to keep beside you.
