Release Day! Take A Chance On Me

It’s finally here! Release day for the third book in my Love On Chance Avenue series, Take A Chance on Me is Today and I couldn’t be more excited!

This is a very sweet story set right in downtown Marietta, Montana featuring one of my favorite secondary characters ever, eighty year old, Bette Justice, better known as “Gram”.  I adored her and hope you will love her, and Amanda Wright and Tyler Justice, too! The book is available now at all major online retailers in digital and soon, in print too so be sure to order your copy today!

Look for Take A Chance On Me here:

In one of the opening scenes of Take A Chance On Me, Bette brings salads to The Wright Salon for lunch with Amanda, and I love a great salad, too.  I’m sharing one of my favorites, Chicken & Apple Salad, that I found on The Recipe Critic’s website.


  • 8 ounces lettuce mix (recipe called for Spring mix, but I like romaine and bibb or butter lettuce!)
  • 2-3 small apples sliced
  • ⅓ cup roasted pecans
  • ⅓ cup dried cranberries
  • ¼ cup crumbled bleu cheese (I use feta as I’m not a blue cheese fan)
  • Cooked and diced seasoned chicken (buy cooked Rotissiere if you don’t have team to cook your own)
  • 1 lemon


  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 and ½ teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 shallot
  • 1 clove garlic
  • salt & pepper to taste


Chop chicken into bite sized pieces and roast or candy the pecans. Place lettuce in a large salad bowl, top with the pecans, cranberries, bleu cheese and chicken. Thinly slice apples,  toss with lemon juice and add to salad bowl. For the dressing, finely mince garlic and shallots and combine with the rest of the ingredients. Mix well. Toss with salad just before serving and Enjoy!
