Back Cover:All Love Needs Is A Chance
In Salt Lick Holler, Kentucky, three young women healing from past hurts aren't looking for love...but love comes looking for them.
Lovejoy Spencer, widowed and wounded by the worst that marriage can offer, is trying to protect her sister from making the same mistakes. But will her determination to shelter others--and to return home to Salt Lick Holler--keep her from embracing her own Chance?
Young, widowed, and content with her role as Salt Lick's healer, Hattie Thales thinks there's nothing more to add to her life. But in Reliable California, Logan Chance feels life has barely begun. When he and his youngest brother, Bryce, leave to search for the Lord's plans, will two lives come together in an adventure they hadn't dreamed?
Daisy Thales doesn't need any help. She'd prefer to heal from her losses and to raise her palsied child on her own--without help or pity. But Bryce Chance, the last Chance bachelor, has a quiet way with her son--and with her heart. Will Daisy open her heart in time for all three of them to find their chance at love?
Will faith in God's healing comfort take root? And will love have a chance to grow? LOVED IT!!!!!
These three books were a fun read. Even though I read Cathys first book four years ago, Im glad it was included in this compilation of stories. It was a great introduction to Kellys two follow-up books (Kelly is Cathys daughter). I enjoyed the dialogue and found the characters interesting and enjoyable. A fast, fun read. If you like Christian fiction and historical fiction, I think youll enjoy these books about the Chance brothers.

This was a VERY good book abt. the hill families and people of Kentucky. They reached out to each other for help and started families and depended onm each other. There are three stories abt. the Chance boys and how they found their wives and either moved or began their own homes. I hardily recommend this book.
3 short stories but all tied together with the same people and all with happy endings. Interesting to see how the living was in the KY mountains back in the 1800's. I really enjoyed this book, it was hard to put down.
This continues the story of the Chance brothers. The six Chance brothers each have their own story beginning with California Chances. In this book, the brides are from Kentucky.
Last Chance by Cathy Marie Hake: Widow Lovejoy Spencer escorts her sister and 2 neighbor girls who are to marry the MacPherson brothers, former residents of the mountain community in Kentucky, to Reliable, California. She wants to be sure the three brothers will be good husbands before she returns to Salt Lick Holler. But she keeps running into widower Daniel Chance and his 2 young daughters and the rest of the Chance family. She has many occasions to use her vast knowledge of remedies as the healer in Salt Lick Holler. When it comes time for her to return home, will Daniel be able to let her go?

He's heard so much about Salt Lick Holler, Kentucky, that he decides that will be a great place to have some adventures. So he and his youngest brother Bryce travel there hoping to hunt and fish and maybe find God's will for their life. Of course they come bearing gifts from the MacPherson brides, so end up staying in the barn of Widow Willow Hendrick who has continued as the healer when Lovejoy left. She is training Hattie Thales in the art of yarbs and healing. Will Logan's adventure turn to love?
Chance of a Life Time by Kelly Eileen Hake: Bryce is quiet and doesn't say much, but he's made an attachment with little Jamie Thales and his widowed ma Daisy. He decides to stay the winter at Salt Lick Holler and court Daisy. She's lost a lot in her young life and having a 5-year-old son with palsy demands most of her time and abilities to make a living. She doesn't want pity or charity. Can she turn everything to God so she can find love again?
I love reading these stories where each leads right into the next and continues on.
