Sometimes love is waiting in the second act...

In her professional career, Ella Mancini plays matchmaker at Two Love Lane but, in her personal life, she takes the stage at the Dock Street Theatre. Now she has a chance at a new role in a Hollywood movie that happens to be filming in Charleston―one that features a big-name actress, Samantha Drake. Long ago, Ella passed up a major audition while awaiting a marriage proposal. Not only didn’t she get the role; she never got the ring, either. Instead, her boyfriend Hank went on to become a huge film star…leaving her, and all her dreams, behind.

But now Hank’s back in Charleston, cast as the male lead in the same movie Ella’s in. In spite of the dramatic tension off-screen, he and Ella try to stay cool onset. But when their old feelings start to heat up―at the same time leading-lady Samantha tries to play cupid―all bets are off. How can Hank convince Ella, after all this time, that she’s the one he really wants to be with in real life―and that some happy, rom-com endings really can come true?

ARC Romance Series smart and funny


The girls at Two Love Lane are a pleasure to read about. While Second Chance at Two Love Lane is book 3 in the series, it does read as a standalone. Having missed reading the second book in the series, I did not feel that I missed any storyline since this book focuses on Ella.


It was a light read, full of giggly moments and sweet romance. I found that I enjoy reading stories including fictional movie stars. It brings a sort of new dilemma in relationships involving movie stars and regular people. How would they make it work? The scheduling, fame, and all that. As the title of the book states, Ella and Hank get a second chance at their relationship. While Hank is a big movie star, Ella has put her dreams of also becoming a star on hold and now works at Two Love Lane as a matchmaker.

The story has a Rom-Com feel to it when Ella and Hank find themselves in the same town and same house after all those years apart. It really was a cute read, and had the added drama of Ella’s large Italian family thrown in for good measure. However, I don’t feel like that side story added much to the main plot.

Author Kieran Kramer excels with creating very likeable characters and creating fictional friendships that are fun to read and follow.

I have this coming up in a few books and I haven’t really seen anything on it. So I’m thrilled to see your review and that you enjoyed it. I love a good Hollywood romance too!

This book sounds like it’s so much fun, and this author has some of the best covers! They make me want to pick them up. LOL

Great review

Mary Kirkland

I haven’t read this author but this sounds pretty good.

This series looks so endearing based on the covers. Thanks for your review as I’m now interested but may begin with the first one. I can just picture these as Hallmark movies 😉
