Second Chance (The Conclusion Of the Flowers in December Trilogy) by Jane Suen – Review by Sarah Oakes

Second Chance (Flowers in December #3)Second Chance by Jane Suen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A great read about second chances. When Connor was dealing with his mothers death, he met Mary Ann who was the florist. But with grief, he distanced himself from her and the chance of a relationship with her. A few months later, he returns to the town with a new outlook on life. He bumps into Mary Ann again and old feelings resurface. But will she give him a second chance at love?
A great read. Well developed plot with twists and turns. Well developed characters like Connor going after what he wants but also unsure or Mary Ann standing up for herself but vulnerable underneath. Great cast of suoporting characters like the no nonsense Mrs Steele or the perceptive Alana.
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel like with the snow covered forest and sparkling trees on the car drives making the countryside peaceful and magical.
Or with the cards later on with the childlike fun and togetherness as they make the best of a bad situation. Or with the memory of her father with the colourful trees and hot chocolate and bonfires with sights and sounds and smells so vivid its as if you’re actually there.
The switch of perspectives worked well to display both sides of the story and was easy to follow with names at the start of chapters.The memories worked well to portray the events of the past and didn’t disrupt from the narrative of the present. The only issue I would raise is that there was some repetition in places which could have been reduced. Overall, a great read and I would give it five stars.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the last book to the Flowers in December series. I absolutely love this series and it’s sad to see it end. You can read this book as a stand alone but I highly recommend that you read the first two books for the whole story. I was so excited when I got this book I stopped everything and started to read it immediately. It only took me a couple of hours to finish this beautiful story.

Mary Ann is still loving her flower shop and it’s been four months after Connor left. She is seeing a new guy that is making her happy but there is something missing. Mary Ann is in the store one day and she swears she sees Connor but he went back to the city. She is in complete shock when she finds out that it is Connor. He moved back but why. Can Mary Ann and Connor move on from the hurt or will it be too much for the both of them?

I have read this series in order but you can read this as a standalone, but I think its best to read all 3.
This book was sweet, and shows no matter what love can prevail.
Im not the biggest fan of back and forth from past to present but did appreciate getting to know Mary Ann. This is the perfect ending to this trilogy, and I will look for more from this author .

Second Chances is the conclusion of Jane Suen’s Flowers in December and even though some sources say you could read it as a standalone, please do us all a favour and start from the beginning! Trilogy is a trilogy and you would be missing out on all of the backstory!
We are back with Connor and Mary Ann and Connor’s mother’s cat Tom. Connor is back to stay and he has finally acknowledged that it was a grave mistake to leave Mary Ann and he is going to go out on a limb to make her part of his and Tom’s life, again … from scrambled eggs to finger licking grilled cheese … If you love second chances stories then this series is the one to go to and you will be keeping your fingers crossed for Connor and Mary Ann until the cramp!

Okay so firstly I’m an complete sucker for a second chance romance I mean who isn’t, to have the second chance to finally get true love what isn’t to love about that! This storyline took me on a mega emotional rollercoaster my devil side of me just wanted to get to skip to the end to find out if they get together (I didn’t I was good!). It was a novel i could just sit down and get completely lost in their world and get away from reality for abit which is magical and truly powerful how a brilliant written storyline can just make you forget about the world even if it’s just for a little while! I absolutely love this author and I truly can’t wait to read more from her!

Second Chance: The Conclusion of the Flowers in December Trilogy by Jane Suen ended this trilogy perfectly.

Connor has figured out that he and Tom belong in their hometown, and Mary Ann Isabella need to part of their lives when they get home. Life doesn’t always work out the way you want it, but every now and again life throws a break your way.

As much as I liked the humans in this story I really had a special place in my heart for the cats. Oh and Mrs. Steele even though she wasn’t a huge part of the story line.

If your looking for a sweet story then I suggest you read this entire series.

Second Chance by Jane Suen
4 Stars!!!!

I really enjoyed this book as it is yet again another great read from this author. I could really relate to the author’s characters and found her writing to be quite refreshing. The way in which she used the character’s grief process and brought them together really made for a realistic and enjoyable read.

I can really relate to Connor and how he was adjusting in his grief for the loss of his mother as I too have lost my mom in recent times. I like how the relationship between him and Mary Ann progresses. The chemistry between the two is electrifying and their shared grief of past
losses is just the bit that makes their bond stronger. I also like that they are both cat people as again I can relate and that their cats both like one another two. I really enjoy this author’s books and I will definitely read more from this author in the future.

Four Stars

Second Chance is the last book in the Flowers in December Trilogy and the book I have been waiting for. I have enjoyed the whole series but this book really tied things up. This book could be read as a stand alone, but I highly recommend this series in order. Conner and Mary Ann’s story was sweet and just what I needed after the holidays. Jane Suen does a great job with the short HEA stories that make you feel good reading. I look forward to seeing what she has in store for us next.

Second Chance is the Conclusion of the Flowers in December trilogy by Jane Suen. All 3 books are short and sweet. I’m glad for the wrap up and happy ending for Connor and Mary Ann. Connor has been struggling since his mother passed away, trying to find his place in the world. He was left with her house and her cat, and memories, which caused a lot of internal struggle for him. We go into this final book knowing of his crush on Mary Ann, and her struggle with her feelings. Connor thinks he ruined his chances when he went back to the city, and is debating if he should fight to win her back. This was my favorite book in the series, because I could see both characters mature and be strong. Set aside a weekend, cuddle up with a blanket and tea, and knock out the whole series.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Second Chance is the last novel in the Flowers in December Trilogy by Jane Suen. This is my second novel by this author.

Mary Ann owns a flower shop and in walks Connor who is grieving over his mother.

Four months later, Connor leaves his corporate job and returns to the small town to see Mary Ann but things have changed. Can he win her heart?

This was an emotional journey and I was pulled in. I was hoping that Mary Ann and Connor would find their happiness together.

There are others in this series but can be read as a stand-alone and I highly recommend this novel. It’s a short read but it’s a sweet romance.
