Elli — A Breast Cancer Survivor

Tina DeSalvo Elli

Elli Morenelli has lived through a nightmare and now must conquer her fears to live her dream…

Her life could have been over with her breast cancer diagnosis, but Elli had fought it and won. Now through her foundation, she is fighting for other women facing the same nightmare. But the foundation has been thrown into financial crisis. Elli needs money. And she needs it fast.

Two determined people.

Elli finds herself with half ownership of a Louisiana plantation with a man who wants her to go away. A twisted inheritance has set her up with an interesting future. Unfortunately, the cancer taught Elli not to plan for a future. She just wants to sell the plantation, take the money and run.

Ben Bienvenu wants nothing to do with the woman from California who is certain to turn his world upside down. The conditions of the will that left the property to both of them doesn’t give him much choice. Not if he wants to keep the property that’s been in his family for generations.

Two people with more in common then they realize.

A snobby diva rental dog, an impossible will, a nosy Bienvenu family, a distracting Mardi Gras season and a man who thinks he is protecting his son and not repeating past mistakes by standing his ground against her… Elli knows that finding common ground with the man known as the Cajun Dog Whisperer is going to be an uphill battle.

Two broken people.
Both in need of a Second Chance….
