SECOND CHANCE DAD by Roxanne Rustand

He Was A Challenge She Couldn’t Ignore...

The minute she steps foot in his dark, miserable house, Sophie Alexander knows Josh McClaren is not her usual patient. But the single mom and physical therapist is desperate to make a life for her and her young son. And she’s definitely no quitter! It’s obvious to Sophie that handsome, cantankerous Josh hides his pain behind a wall of grief. Little by little, Sophie and her son, Eli, do more than help Josh find his faith again. They make Josh wonder if there’s a family in his future after all....

Aspen Creek Crossroads:  Where faith, love and healing meet.

Here's one of her favorite recipes as a tease.


1/2 cup melted butter (no substitute!) 2 cups brown sugar 2 eggs 1 Tbsp REAL vanilla 2 cups flour 1/2 tsp salt 2 tsp baking powder 1 cup M&Ms

Combine first four ingredients and beat really well, then stir in dry ingredients. Don’t overbeat. Add the M&Ms last.

Pat into a well-greased 9×13 pan, then bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Do not overbake–these should be nice and chewy, so watch them carefully!

Hope you enjoy these, and come back again for other recipes. And if you’d like to share a favorite, that would be great!
