    Second Chances

    This story of second chances, and later life romance was satisfying. Well written, I enjoyed not only the romance between Bea and Grant, but also the Supper Club friends, and the ways they support and love one another. Looking forward to more in this series.

    I want a love list

    I want a love list, I already have five things I want to put on it. What a wonderful idea and a beautifully written book. This was an enjoyable read that made you feel good and showed you that you can find love even when you are not looking. I love Bea’s friends, they are there for her and are willing to help her figure things out. I would recommend this book to all. I received an arc and the views and opinions are my own.

    Very Clean and Very Romantic

    I really enjoyed reading this book about the bonds of friendship and romance. Bea went through a difficult divorce and when she receives the final papers, she felt out of sorts on wondering what she will do next in her life. Her unique knack for making lists to keep her on track was named “The Love List”. Bea’s friends encourage her to get away, and even books the trip for her to Hilton Head to enjoy the beach. I enjoyed the “sisterhood ” of the women and the way they helped each other when faced with challenges. Their love for each other is amazing. I totally recommend reading this book especially if you are a hopeless romantic!!!!????

    Great characters.

    This is my voluntary review of a copy I received from the author.The friend characters are mostly supportive and obviously love each other, even if they keep secrets and each is in different situation in their private lives.The main male character had acquaintances, not real friends, or so he thinks.Neither is looking for a relationship and a long distance one even less, and when things are calling her back home… well that’s it. Right?

    Second Chance for Bea

    I really enjoyed this story about Bea and Grant and having a second chance at love a little later in life. Things are never easy with so many friends and families involved, but Bea’s friends are an amazing support system and help her navigate fostering a new relationship several states away. Wonderful chemistry between the leads and terrific supporting cast who I’m guessing we’ll see in later stories make me eager to see what happens in the next story!

    An unexpected second chance

    When Bea’s divorce papers finally arrive, she’s not sure what comes next. A life-long maker of lists, she’s compiled a new one called her love list. Little does she realize that this list will change her life forever. When her friend, Cass, books a vacation for her on Hilton Head Island, she’s trying to adjust to traveling alone. Then she meets the owner/manager of the beach house she’s staying at, she doesn’t expect Grant to capture her heart. But she lives in small-town Texas and he’s been on Hilton Head most of his life. Does their budding love even stand a chance? This is the perfect beach read about a group of women closer than most sisters and how they learn to adapt to life’s changes. An excellent read.

    Loved It

    Great book in a new series. With her divorce final, Bea goes to Hilton Head Island to work on her “love list”. Grant was not on her list and totally unexpected. Bea and Grant are such well written characters that I felt right there with them. Her friends are her support and they are described so well. This second chance romance is a wonderful read, can’t wait for the next one, and highly recommend it.I received a free copy of this book and this is my voluntary, honest review.

    This is a great midlife read!

    This is a great midlife read. Not a paranormal one like I usually read but a beach one and i loved it. 45 years old, newly divorced and kids got their own lives what’s a lady to do? Start a list of what you would love to do and follow it. That’s exactly what Bea does and so finds herself on Hilton Head island and a fantabulous beach vacation. Throw in a tall, dark and handsome vacation manager and you have yourself a sweet clean romance with a couple that have great chemistry which just proves there is life after 40!!

    A story of friendship, loss and love

    This is a wonderful new story from an author I enjoy. Bea is recently divorced and her friends have been there through it all and are very important to her. They push her to leave her comfort zone and it all turns out just wonderfully. I don’t want to give the story away so I won’t go into details but I love the dynamics of the friends, how they all try to hide themselves but the others know who they truly are. There are friends, there is a man and a woman and there are trials and tribulations. Good clean sweet romance but it’s mostly about Bea and her life.

    Sometimes the scariest things we have to do are also the most rewarding

    Sometimes the scariest things we have to do are also the most rewarding. Now with grown children and a broken marriage behind her, Bea is starting over at a time in her life when she should be enjoying the rewards of all her hard work. I adored the way Bea took on the challenges of this new phase in her life. Things she wanted to do but hadn’t while she was still with her ex? Those go at the top of the list to accomplish first. And I loved that she was willing to step outside of her comfort zone and take little risks with Grant. I’m also a little in love with the supporting cast around this pair. They’re all vibrant characters and I want to read more about each and every one of them.I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author.

    The Love List is the first book in the Hilton Head Island series, and the first book from this author that I have read. I found this story of starting over from divorce a sweet and wonderful book to read, and enjoyed following Bea and Grant’s story. I am looking forward to reading more from this author and the next book in this series.

    What will she decide?

    Bea has just received her final divorce papers at 45, has empty nested and is lonely. She has spent her life writing lists so she does forget anything. Her lists have lists. She writes up a bucket list that she calls her lovelist. Her Thursday night supper club makes reservations and ship her off to Hilton Head to go in the ocean. Mind you, the ocean is an hour drive out of her home in Texas. Where is she going to meet someone her age? She meets Grant, the rental owner of her cottage and is he enamored with her! The problem is that they live a few thousand miles away from each other. She is called home when her father falls and breaks his hip. Issues, issues and issues….. what to do. Well, she has a posse that don’t find it beneath them to plot.Well written and a very enjoyable read for this old lady!I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book

    I love Bea’s idea of a “Love” list. I am a maker of lists myself but not to her extent. Grant is the perfect man for her and I am so happy she is getting her happily ever after. Grant deserves a woman who makes him happy, also. I wish we had met his daughter in this book but maybe she will show up in another. I always love books by Elana Johnson.

    My Favorite Elana Johnson book so far

    I’ve read a lot of books by Elana Johnson. But this book is way more than a romance. It was about a middle aged woman, Bea, who has close friends that she sees regularly. After a drawn out divorce, 14 months of fighting with her ex, the divorce is final. Bea is a great maker of lists and she’s written out a list for what she wants to do, sort of a bucket list, but more a list of enjoyable or challenging things she wants to try. Her friends book her into a water front cottage on Hilton Head Island.She starts working on her list and meets a man – maybe THE man. But she’s a long way from home and life goes on.This book is a clean story about friendship, family, and love. Anyone can read it.I received a copy of this book from the author. This is my honest review.

    A Breath of Fresh Air

    A wonderful and refreshing book about friendship and second chances. ❤️ I love this book. Beatrice or “Bea” has six amazing friends who are trying to help her through the finalizing of her divorce. She is notorious for making list so her friends help her check off some items by sending her on a trip to Hilton Head Island for some relaxation. Bea will have an easy time checking off items when she meets the rental manager, Grant. If you want a sweet read for the beach pick up The Love List.

    Second chances

    I have always shied away from ‘later in life’ romances. I’m at that age and didn’t think I would enjoy reading about it. So when I started reading A Love List, I almost stopped, before I got started. But I had committed to reading it so on I went. The story about this group of ladies “The Supper Club” hit the mark. I throughly enjoyed learning about these ladies, and surprisingly didn’t fell overwhelmed by intros to all of them. I thought the story development was really well done, focusing mostly on Bea and Grant. But the few chapters that highlighted other characters really tied in well and made you want to hear their story also. I also really appreciated the wholesome, chaste relationship. The love list, list is a really fun idea for anyone needing to expand and explore, to add new things to keep life interesting. No real high drama, just loving, and compassionate friends that support and encourage each other. A breath of fresh air and a rededication to trying new things, like ‘later in life’ romances. I am excited to read who’s story is next!

    Get ready for lots of ahs and sighs.

    What an amazing fun beach read. Six women that have a Saturday Night Dinner Club and help each other through all of life’s ups and downs. Bea was suddenly left adrift after her husband found someone new after 25 years and her 3 kids grown and in university and making their own lives. After a 14 month divorce process she’s free to have a Love List -not a bucket list, but things she would love to do. The friends arranged for her to go to Hilton Head island for a 10- day getaway. Her cottage manager is Grant, a handsome 40 something with a teenager daughter. Both felt something they hadn’t dared even dream they would feel again. Life happens and family happens and they wonder if it really was just a vacation fling.This is a clean beach read, but with real feelings and sizzle. Life and love can happen after 40.

Then she meets Grant who manages the house she is renting. Sparks fly but can they last since Grant lives on Hilton Head and she lives in Texas. When she leaves Hilton Head to return to Texas for her Daughters graduation and wedding planning party, Bea’s intentions are to return to Hilton Head but then her father breaks his hip and Bea decides she must stay in Texas.

    To Do lists

    I really enjoyed this clean beach romance. Bea has gone through a long drawn out divorce and is finally free. Her friends encourage her to get away. One of them books a trip to Hilton Head. Grant is the manager of the property that she rents. They fall for each other almost immediately. When her vacation is up, she travels to her college daughter’s recital then something happens to her dad that interrupts her plans. She decides to break up but will love conquer all?I received an ARC of this book and am giving an honest review.

    Elana sweeps you off your feet making you want to book a flight to that very destination she’s written about! I cannot tell you how often I’ve written down each and every trip I’ve imagined wanting to take via her stories…

    Great characters.

    This is my voluntary review of a copy I received from the author.The friend characters are mostly supportive and obviously love each other, even if they keep secrets and each is in different situation in their private lives.The main male character had acquaintances, not real friends, or so he thinks.Neither is looking for a relationship and a long distance one even less, and when things are calling her back home… well that’s it. Right?

    Second chances

    I have always shied away from ‘later in life’ romances. I’m at that age and didn’t think I would enjoy reading about it. So when I started reading A Love List, I almost stopped, before I got started. But I had committed to reading it so on I went. The story about this group of ladies “The Supper Club” hit the mark. I throughly enjoyed learning about these ladies, and surprisingly didn’t fell overwhelmed by intros to all of them. I thought the story development was really well done, focusing mostly on Bea and Grant. But the few chapters that highlighted other characters really tied in well and made you want to hear their story also. I also really appreciated the wholesome, chaste relationship. The love list, list is a really fun idea for anyone needing to expand and explore, to add new things to keep life interesting. No real high drama, just loving, and compassionate friends that support and encourage each other. A breath of fresh air and a rededication to trying new things, like ‘later in life’ romances. I am excited to read who’s story is next!

    Start of a series

    I had an ARC copy of this book, but this is my honest and voluntary opinion. Bea Callahan makes lists for everything. When her divorce is final her friends talk her into going to Hilton Head for 10 days. While there she becomes friend with the owner of her rental property and she plans to return, but life interferes. The plot includes issues of starting over midlife, trust, and priorities. An uplifting book and a great read.

    Second Chance for Bea

    I really enjoyed this story about Bea and Grant and having a second chance at love a little later in life. Things are never easy with so many friends and families involved, but Bea’s friends are an amazing support system and help her navigate fostering a new relationship several states away. Wonderful chemistry between the leads and terrific supporting cast who I’m guessing we’ll see in later stories make me eager to see what happens in the next story!

    Get ready for lots of ahs and sighs.

    What an amazing fun beach read. Six women that have a Saturday Night Dinner Club and help each other through all of life’s ups and downs. Bea was suddenly left adrift after her husband found someone new after 25 years and her 3 kids grown and in university and making their own lives. After a 14 month divorce process she’s free to have a Love List -not a bucket list, but things she would love to do. The friends arranged for her to go to Hilton Head island for a 10- day getaway. Her cottage manager is Grant, a handsome 40 something with a teenager daughter. Both felt something they hadn’t dared even dream they would feel again. Life happens and family happens and they wonder if it really was just a vacation fling.This is a clean beach read, but with real feelings and sizzle. Life and love can happen after 40.

    Good romance

    Wonderful love story. It was nice to read of an older couple romance. 40+ is definitely not old these days. And sadly there are many divorced people out there, looking for the right one. This story I believe helps those who wonder if they’ll ever find their soulmate. I was blessed to find mine. I didn’t like all the backh stories if the Supper Club ladies, especially when none had a happy ending. I’m assuming the author will write a happily ever after story about each of them. For those like me, who reads a book a night, who can’t afford to buy every e-book, we’ll never know their romantic endings. I enjoyed seeing Bea check off her love list items, but I didn’t like it being called love list. Maybe “To Live Again” list would have been great. My opinion only. Ha! I was very happy to find a clean modern day romance. Kudos to this author.

    You have to take care of yourself!

    Bea was happy when she finally got the final divorce papers. It took fourteen months for that to happen. She decided to do things a different way. She had her long hair cut short and celebrated with her friends. Her friends told her she needed to get away for a vacation. One of the friends actually purchased a 10 day rental for her and sent her on her way! Bea wasn’t sure about this, but it was already purchased, so off she went to South Carolina on Hilton Head Island. Grant Turner owned the units and took care of any problems. Bea had several problems, and wound up moving in to one right beside the owner. I really enjoyed how well this story developed. This isn’t the end of the story, but it sure has a lot of love in it!

    I have not listened to the audio on this but I totally enjoyed reading Bea and Grant’s story. I liked the lists Bea made and it was great that her friends rallied to help her complete some of the items on the list. I took my time reading this because I did enjoy it and didn’t want it to end. Grant was a good match for Bea and was happy to add to her list with items that included him. I was happy to see the additional chapters link at the end and I enjoyed those extra chapters also.

    A wonderful and refreshing book about friendship and second chances. ❤️ I love this book. Beatrice or “Bea” has six amazing friends who are trying to help her through the finalizing of her divorce. She is notorious for making list so her friends help her check off some items by sending her on a trip to Hilton Head Island for some relaxation. Bea will have an easy time checking off items when she meets the rental manager, Grant. If you want a sweet read for the beach pick up The Love List.

    An unexpected second chance

    When Bea’s divorce papers finally arrive, she’s not sure what comes next. A life-long maker of lists, she’s compiled a new one called her love list. Little does she realize that this list will change her life forever. When her friend, Cass, books a vacation for her on Hilton Head Island, she’s trying to adjust to traveling alone. Then she meets the owner/manager of the beach house she’s staying at, she doesn’t expect Grant to capture her heart. But she lives in small-town Texas and he’s been on Hilton Head most of his life. Does their budding love even stand a chance? This is the perfect beach read about a group of women closer than most sisters and how they learn to adapt to life’s changes. An excellent read.

    I enjoyed this book of second chances and the fellowship of women who challenge, love, and care for each other. I’ve never officially made a bucket list, but I enjoyed reading about Bea’s and the fact she called it her “Love List”–things she’d love to do in her life! Her friends help her along by booking a getaway vacation for her, and now that she’s in this new stage of her life, she begins to enjoy life and the friendly Grant who owns the beach house she’s renting. But they live so far away from each other, and what with family obligations, can it ever work out? As Bea begins to step out into the adventure of life, I thoroughly enjoyed the encouragement she received from her friend, “Run with it, not from it.” I’ve been able to apply this to my current life circumstances as I’m going through some health challenges.

    This story is a wonderful, endearing tale of a woman who is trying to unstick her life from being stuck in “boring, normal, not-needed” mode. She uses lists for anything and everything in her life and her “love list” tells about it all (so I wont). I enjoyed the characters and felt like I was right there in the middle of the women’s group meetings and right along the beach at Hilton Head. Elana Johnson is the bestest and never disappoints in her story telling. I highly recommend this book if you want to have some laughs, tears, joy, sorrow, and a “just-plain feel good feeling.

Elana Johnson is the bestest and never disappoints in her story telling. I highly recommend this book if you want to have some laughs, tears, joy, sorrow, and a “just-plain feel good feeling.

    I want a love list

    I want a love list, I already have five things I want to put on it. What a wonderful idea and a beautifully written book. This was an enjoyable read that made you feel good and showed you that you can find love even when you are not looking. I love Bea’s friends, they are there for her and are willing to help her figure things out. I would recommend this book to all. I received an arc and the views and opinions are my own.

    Makes you rethink divorce.

    When I first read the blurb about this book, I didn’t think I would like it. But I forgot about the writing ability of Elana Johnson. I really was engrossed in this book and it made me rethink my own divorce. I was of the mind when my marriage ended after twenty years, that I was one and done. Ironically my marriage ended over a women named Beatrice, you got to find humor in that. I wish I knew about a love list then. Now I wonder what I missed. Bea realized that she had put herself in a box that she needed to get out of. I loved the characters in this book, especially Bea and Grant and their tribe of friends. Excellent read and you will not be disappointed in the reading of this book. I was given this book by the author, to give a honest review. I can hardly wait for Cass’s story.

    Awesome Book

    What a totally awesome book. Loved the whole Supper Club, those ladies are great. Bea and Grant are a great couple with lots of chemistry. But, she lives Texas and he lives in South Carolina. Thought it was great when he took her kite flying. This is a sweet romance with lots of heart. Many times it will make you go ahhh. I have to say, I think this is my favorite Elana Johnson book.I was given this advanced copy for free, and am leaving this review voluntaril

    still lots of romance

    I really enjoyed this start to a new series. I was a bit worried about the main genre being women’s fiction and that it wouldn’t have enough romance for my liking, but I was pleasantly surprised. I loved the vacation island setting and can’t wait for more of this series!I received an ARC of this book and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

    Fun, Family, Friends and Romance. What more do you need?

    Great start to a series. Love the idea of a women’s supper club where they are close and support each other.

    Good story

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading Bea and Grant’s story. Bea had her list and her friends to help with it. Meeting Grant was icing on the cake. They faced challenges but came through for a happy ending. The book with the additional chapters was great to tie everything up nicely.

    You have to take care of yourself!

    Bea was happy when she finally got the final divorce papers. It took fourteen months for that to happen. She decided to do things a different way. She had her long hair cut short and celebrated with her friends. Her friends told her she needed to get away for a vacation. One of the friends actually purchased a 10 day rental for her and sent her on her way! Bea wasn’t sure about this, but it was already purchased, so off she went to South Carolina on Hilton Head Island. Grant Turner owned the units and took care of any problems. Bea had several problems, and wound up moving in to one right beside the owner. I really enjoyed how well this story developed. This isn’t the end of the story, but it sure has a lot of love in it!

    New series!!

    A new series by one of my favorite authors! I love that these women are middle aged and not young just starting their lives. Each of these women have unique characteristics and life experiences. Change is inevitable. Grab this book today! You won’t be disappointed! I voluntarily read an advance copy of this book and this is my honest review.
