Suspenseful, pace-filled and packed with romance, Second Chance Town is a gorgeous new novel from the bestselling Karly Lane, about a single mother doing her best to support her teenage daughter.
Single mother Lucy Parker loves the quiet historical charm of her hometown of Bundah. Raising her teenage daughter Belle can be challenging and, in a small town where everyone knows everyone else's business, it's even more daunting than usual.
Newcomer Hugh Thompson is determined to put his chequered history behind him. Excited by the potential he sees in Bundah, he buys a rundown pub with big plans for a fresh start. But not long after Hugh's arrival, a spate of teenage drug overdoses starts to divide the locals and there are whispers they might be connected to the reclusive new publican who has a somewhat dark and mysterious past.
When Belle suddenly starts hanging out with the wrong kids and experimenting with alcohol, Lucy becomes fearful that drugs will be next. The very last thing she needs is for a man like Hugh to come along and disrupt her life. But it seems fate has other ideas . . .
Suspenseful and romantic, Second Chance Town is about fulfilling your dreams in life and love.
Karly Lane lives with her husband and four children in a small town on the mid-north coast of NSW. She writes whenever she can fit it in around her part-time job and children.
