Review: Miracle on Chance Avenue by Jane Porter

Miracle on Chance Avenue
by Jane Porter

Publisher: Tule Publishing
Pages: 222

Goodreads:  Rory Douglas is the oldest Douglas and McKenna’s adored big brother, but this big, quiet cowboy rarely returns to Marietta, choosing to exorcise his demons by a life on the road, riding bulls every night on the American Extreme Bull Riding Tour. 

Thirty-eight year old Rory needs a miracle, and he gets one when Sadie Mann, one of his sister’s childhood friends, appears on his motel doorstep, asking for a favor. 

Shocked by Sadie’s request, Rory brusquely refuses, but when an accident in the arena sidelines him, he begins to wonder if granting Sadie’s Christmas wish, might just turn his life around.

Kritters Thoughts:  I have been a fan of Jane Porter for a long time, so when I found out that there was blacklist books that I hadn't read I got so excited.  I was even more excited to find a holiday themed book that I could read for December.  I say all of this because I didn't love this book at all.

From the beginning I knew this was book two in a series, but with most romance series each book is self contained.  I felt as though throughout the whole book I was missing out on a storyline or something and I didn't love it.  

Rory and Sadie were interesting characters and not interesting in the way I like things.  Sadie's obsessive nature about becoming a mom felt weird and awkward.  I felt as though the author didn't do a great job of setting up how they had known each other from childhood which made things feel all a bit uncomfortable.  Because their history wasn't established that well, it felt as though Sadie was this weird rodeo stalker instead of what she probably was which was a long standing crush.  

I just couldn't get behind this couple or their journey.  I wanted to love this book so much that I went and devoured this series and instead I think I will drop this series and will not try anything else from this series.  

Rating: not such a good read
