Take a Chance on Me is set in the Marietta, MT universe and is the third book in Jane Porter's Love on Chance Avenue series. Like I have discovered with the Marietta books, you don't need to have read the previous books in the series to enjoy this one.

Review: Night Music by Deanna Lynn Sletten

by Donna Huber

(first chapter, first paragraph)
Chapter One
September 1970
Charlotte Parsons slipped out of her 1964 Pontiac GTO and snoothed down her plaid skirt before picking up a pile of books. It was her first day of college, and she was bothe nervous and excited. It had felt like this day would never come, and now, here she was.

Last fall, I watched Ken Burns's documentary The Vietnam War. It was before my time, but 'too recent' to be covered in my history classes so I had little real knowledge of what went on during that time period. A number of novels have also been released recently which Susan has reviewed. When I saw Night Music on NetGalley I had to request it.
