“A Father’s Second Chance” by Mindy Obenhaus, book review
Celeste has moved to a small town to take over her grandmothers café. She has fond memories of being here with her grandmother, and is eager to make it go. She has grand plans to renovate and open a bed and breakfast, using as much of the original materials as possible to keep the charm of the place.
Gage is a single dad of two precious daughters, who can be a real handful at times. Gage and Celeste meet at a wedding- Celeste is the caterer while Gage is related to the wedding party. When one of Gage's daughters threatens a melt down, Celeste is able to head it off and calm the situation.
They meet again when a bear invades Celeste's garage and she runs across the street for help. As the two get to know each other, they become friends and perhaps a bit more.
This was an easy to read, rather predictable romance, with some great characters.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
A Word from the Author: To steal a line from Donny and Marie, I’m a little bit country, a little bit rock-n-roll. I’m trapped in the city, but prefer the country or the mountains.
I love Jesus, my family, and just about anything sweet.
I believe Jesus died for my sins, rose three days later, and will one day return. He has carried me through some of my darkest hours. Without faith in Him, I would be nowhere.
I have a penchant for chocolate, clothes, and shoes. When I’m not penning romance novels, I enjoy cooking, decorating and shopping.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Businesswoman Celeste Thompson has one goal: to make her restaurant and hotel a success. She doesn’t need any distractions, even from handsome contractor Gage Purcell and his two adorable little girls. Besides, single dad Gage is just biding his time before a big job at the mines comes through. But as Celeste’s project springs to life, their arguments transform into attraction. Gage isn’t looking for romance, especially not with another career-driven woman like his ex-wife. But openhearted Celeste is more than just another work-consumed client. She might just be his happily-ever-after.
