About Wendy Lou Jones
My name is Wendy Lou Jones. I was born and raised in West Sussex, England and moved to Birmingham to study Medicine at University, where I was lucky enough to meet my husband. We now live in a little village in Herefordshire with our two grubby boys. I discovered a love of writing not long after my youngest son started school. And if you were to ask me what it was that made me make the switch, I’d tell you quite simply, that it started with a dream.

Review by Tanya
Luke Thornton is a dentist, who has returned to the village of Lower Nutton after leaving there as a child for a public school, and later university. His father sold him his dental practice and Luke intends to update and expand it. He is terribly sure of himself and likes the easy life with nice women and good food. His parents are controlling and like to influence his decisions. As a child Luke was mean and he often was the child that called others names and made their life a misery. Rebecca Rimple can remember Luke and his friends taunting her and doesn't want to have anything to do with him as an adult. She isn't very confident and she doesn't like being seen. However, when Luke and Rebecca cross paths unexpected feelings come to the forefront.
Chances Are is a wonderful surprising story. It has some great twist and turns which certainly kept me interested. As Wendy Lou Jones intended I did not like Luke to start with and found him cocky and too sure of himself with no real care about the consequences of his actions. Rebecca describes him as “handsome and charming, when he wanted to be, but sadly, so full of his own importance it was painful,” which is quite accurate. Fortunately, as the story develops and you learn more about him, you realize that he does care and really has got a conscience. I immediately felt sorry for Rebecca because of her background story, but I also wanted to tell her to believe in herself, as she has so much to offer. The interaction between Luke and Rebecca is intriguing and I liked how they sparred with each other at times.
Chances Are is a book about how people can change when giving love a chance. The story develops at a good pace and I couldn't wait to find out what would happen between Luke and Rebecca. I was so thrilled about how they change in their opinions, outlook and confidence. Wendy Lou Jones, I think this is your best book yet.
