And the hostess, Holly, is married to the perfect man, has two perfect children, and lives in the perfect house...or does she?
When their friend Tom is killed in a terrorist attack, the group gathers to mourn, and as they do, they rediscover the power of friendship, the politics of change, and the true meaning of midlife crisis. Mesmerizing and deliciously appealing, Second Chance will strike a chord with anyone who is still trying to figure life out.

Jane Green always develops the characters so well. I expected this book to be more dreary, but it was lovely. A lot more occurs within the story than you anticipate. Good listen.
Listened to this book to and from work and found myself sitting in my cat until the chapter was over. Loved the story line once I got a hold of all the characters. Sometimes with audibles if there are many characters it takes me a minute to remember who is who.
I found myself laughing and crying with the characters, Jane Green never disappoints.
Despite the fact that I usually really enjoy Jane Green's novels, I couldn't get into this one. As usual with her fiction, the pace is slow and more character-driven -- but these characters didn't appeal to me at all, and the only one I felt some interest in was the one who died at the start of the novel.
If it hadn't been for book club, I never would have finished listening to this book. The story was not that interesting, and there was not a single character that made me root for her/him. I just didn't care what happened to them. Yawn.
