Lucy Sullivan enjoys the simple life, with walks along the beach and girl chats with her BFF, Taylor Donovan.  The local library has been closed permanently due to lack of funding.  So, Lucy put up a Little Free Library in her picturesque, beautiful little village.  Lucy loves keeping up with the little library, making sure there are always plenty of books for her amazing community.  When someone reads a book, they leave a note inside saying what they liked about the book.  When Logan Lancaster arrives in town to solve the town’s budget problems, Lucy is not happy about all the proposed changes. She loves the quaint village exactly the way it is.  It is why she never left.  Can she change Logan’s ideas or will they continue to be complete opposites?

The Library of Second Chances authored by Savannah Carlisle is the perfect beach read. I loved everything about this story.  This is a wonderful story that will immediately transport you to the sandy beach.  With the beautiful sparkling water, picturesque village and the community that feels like family, this is a story that will keep you flying through the pages.  I read well into the night because I could not put this book down.  I loved the amazing characters and the romance that developed between Lucy and Logan was absolutely charming.  Carlisle paints such an incredible picture of life in a quaint village, she makes me want to sell the house and move to the coast.  This is a debut book for Savannah Carlisle and she writes as a seasoned author and is definitely on my auto-buy list.  I highly recommend this phenomenal book.  I look forward to many more stories from this amazing author.

Daily walks along the sparkling shoreline and chats with her best friend are part of bookstore owner Lucy Sullivan's slow-paced life. And that’s just how she likes to spend her time in the close-knit community of her picturesque village.

Lucy also adores maintaining the town’s Little Free Library. Those who leave a book there include notes to the next reader. And Lucy, herself, has gotten a few that have her smitten. Life couldn't be better in her quaint beach village with the sway of sea grass in the soft coastal breeze.

So when she hears 
Logan Lancaster is brought in to solve the town’s budget deficit, Lucy isn’t at all excited about his vision for growth along the waterfront. To make matters worse, it's Lucy who's appointed to oppose Logan in a series of public forums for the planned expansion. The quaint life she's built for herself will never be the same.

They couldn’t be more opposite. Except for one tiny thing: unbeknownst to both of them, they’ve been swapping anonymous notes in the Little Free Library...
