Finding out your soul was put in the wrong body when your guardian angel was off doing other things, is something Marie Carter, now named Marc, finds out when he comes back to the land of the living after unexpectedly dying. Now Marc has one month to make his best friend fall in love with him, redeem his guardian angel in the eyes of his superiors and save his fate. Easy, right?

AJ Jarret delivers a unique story in the whole ‘dying then coming back to life’ plot line. One that had me intrigued after reading the book blurb. She delivers a twist that had me rooting for Marie/Marc to get his happily ever after. This is a new to me author and I found this author’s writing style to be delightful as the story wound itself around me. I wasn’t sure how it would play out with the whole ‘died a female but come back as a male’ line but it worked really well here.

After the first few pages, Marie ceased to exist to my mind and Marc came into full force to me. I loved how the author had Marie’s mannerisms, words, etc transfer over into Marc. He was a wonderful character to get to know. You could see how Marc wanted to have everything work out-get the love of his life, fix everything and live happily ever after…except reality has a way of bitch slapping you when you least expect it. The secondary characters were also enjoyable and relatable. I found Shawn and Sabrina to be delightful as Marc’s best friend/soul mate and sister, respectively. I could really relate to their disbelief and amazement, once it comes out Marc is not who he says he is. The one thing I had an issue with, it was too short. I would have loved to have seen this a bit longer and more in-depth with everyone, but overall, this novella worked just fine for an afternoon of reading pleasure.

Who hasn’t wanted to fix things in their lives? In this debut novel for the Twist of Fate series, AJ Jarrett delivers her version of what she thinks someone may do with that second chance. FATE’S SECOND CHANCE delivers a cast of unforgettable characters, a fast paced storyline with a touch of humor, sadness and romance mixed in to keep things interesting. I am eager to see what is next for this series and look forward to exploring more of this author’s work in the future. Love, friendship and a guardian angel with a sense of humor…that is what’s in FATE’S SECOND CHANCE.
