Elli - A Second Chance Novel by tina desalvo

True love is not scared away.

Elli - A Second Chance Novel by tina desalvo

"Ben, are you sure you understand what you get with me?"

The thing is, Elli still doesn't get that she is not just a cancer survivor.

There so much more to her.

Ben knows it.

Of course, Ben has his own issues. They both start out in desperate places with their lives out of control. It was a forced meeting. And they each had closed up their hearts. No interest. But of course, love.....

What a great story.

I really enjoyed the fun, the crazy characters and the location, (it is set in New Orleans at Mardi Gras). Who doesn't love NOLA?

Dogs, gators, mystery, drama, crazy family, friends and belly laughs, make this a quirky wonderful read.

Really great development of characters throughout the whole story. 

I enjoyed Elli, I learned to like Ben, and I loved Joey. The story made me want to have Tante Izzy and her whole crew living in my neighborhood. More laughs, more fun, and more books by Tina DeSalvo.

It's a really lovely, quirky love story. 

All proceeds of the sale of Elli are donated to the fight against breast cancer.
