A mysterious visitor changes the fortunes of a struggling Nebraska town in this “novel full of hope, humor and singular characters” (Parade). Wilma Porter runs the only bed and breakfast in Ebb, Nebraska, and knows everyone in the small town. She also knows their troubles. Calvin Millet, for example, has an ailing daughter at home and a wife who just up and left him—and on top of that, his department store is close to bankruptcy as a new Wal-Mart looms, and his house has been destroyed by a tornado. When a handsome stranger named Vernon L. Moore comes to Ebb selling games of chance, more than a few eyebrows are raised. A consummate salesman, he befriends the troubled townspeople one by one. He listens to their stories and asks them intriguing questions that make them see their situations differently. The father of a dying child; the reclusive widow who’s taken permanent board at the B&B; the banker with ulterior motives; and the outspoken Wilma herself are all changed by their encounters with this mysterious man who seems not of this world. After all, no one has seen a traveling salesman in Ebb for more than thirty years. But wherever he’s from and whoever he is, he leaves behind a town where second chances are not only possible, they can—and do—happen. “If you’ve been charmed by Jimmy Stewart and the small-town miracles of It’s a Wonderful Life, treat yourself to this unusual little novel.” —Parade “A folksy, wise and gently amusing look at the importance of living life to the fullest and not only trusting in chance, but embracing uncertainty as the spice of life.” —Rocky Mountain News “Just what the doctor ordered.” —Detroit Free Press

A restauranteur in need of a fresh start becomes a house-sitter in a seaside town where she finds herself butting heads with a gruff but handsome local, in this charming new seasonal novel from the author of The Twelve Dates of Christmas. Annie Sharpe's spark for life has fizzled out. Her kids are grown up, her restaurant is doing just fine on its own, and her twenty-six-year marriage has come to an unceremonious end. Untethered for the first time in her adult life, Annie doesn't know what to do with herself. But when she finds a winter guardian position in a historic seaside home, she decides to leave her city life behind for a brand new beginning. When she arrives at Willow Bay, Annie is instantly enamored by the charming house, the invigorating sea breeze, and the town's rich seasonal traditions. Not to mention, her neighbors receive her with open arms--that is, all except for the surly and rugged nephew of the homeowner, who seems intent on making Annie feel unwelcome. His grand plans for the property are directly at odds with her long-term stay. As Christmas approaches, tensions and tides rise in Willow Bay, and Annie's future is looking less and less certain. But with a little can-do spirit and holiday magic, the most difficult season of her life will become A Season for Second Chances.
