The Story:

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...

Note: The Second Chance Cafe was originally named 'The Christmas Cafe'

A Note From Amanda:

Note: This book was originally entitled 'The Christmas Cafe' During a book tour to Australia, I was blown away by friendliness of the everyone that I met and of the amazing cafe culture in the centre and suburbs of Sydney. At the same time, I had a lot of work to take care of back in the UK and was thankful for the reliability of the Internet that allowed me to communicate with the Northern hemisphere. That gave me the idea of having a connection between two wonderful cafes and the possibility of the owners having a romantic encounter...
