Second Chance

By Elizabeth Wrenn

Every woman needs a best friend…

And Deena Munger needs one more than most. Faced with an almost empty nest, a marriage that’s as stale as week-old bread, and hot flushes that are driving her mad, no wonder she feels running away. Despite her twenty extra pounds, Deena feels invisible and wonders when she started to disappear. And how come she never even noticed.

Until the day Heloise enters her life.

To the astonishment of her family, Deena volunteers to raise a Guide dog-and suddenly her world is turned upside down. Can this messy, boisterous, playful Labrador puppy show her the way out of the darkness? Seeing really is believing…
