The Second Chance Café

Can you ever find love twice?
Bea doesn't believe in second chances. As a widow, she feels like she will be alone forever. She buries her grief in hard work, and soon the deli she runs in Sydney, Australia, has a reputation for the best carrot cake in town.
But then an email from a cafe-owner in Edinburgh leads her to take a trip to Scotland in the depths of winter. There, transported by the twinkling lights and falling snow of a traditional Christmas, Bea is drawn back to a secret past – and a secret love – that she has long ago tried to forget…
'A heartwarming novel to read in the run-up to Christmas – hot, balmy beaches to herald the festive season on one side of the world, and light dustings of snow on the other side' TripFiction.
'There's no shortage of books with Christmas in the title, but this family-focused story stands out from the rest' Closer.

    It was a beautiful building in the city that they loved; that in itself was a comfort. There were far, far worse places for her husband to die.
