The Winter of Second Chances is the hilarious, heart-warming second book from the author of The Twelve Dates of Christmas, Jenny Bayliss.

'A gorgeous, cosy winter read that will transport you to the coast on a windswept day' - Sophie Cousens, bestselling author of This Time Next Year

'A tender and enchanting read, full of quirky characters and second chances' - Jean Meltzer, author of The Matzah Ball

Annie Sharpe has it all - an acclaimed restaurant she owns with her handsome husband Max, and two gorgeous grown-up sons. But after one indiscretion too many, she leaves behind the only life she's ever known.

In search of a fresh start, Annie takes up a position as a caretaker of Saltwater Nook, a creaky but charming beach house on Kent's beautiful, wild coastline. The village community is an eccentric but tightknit bunch, and Annie is swept up in a whirlwind of their traditional festive celebrations, from pumpkin carving to bonfires on the beach. It soon feels like home - she even reopens the long-dormant seafront cafe.

The only thorns in her side are John, the owner's rugged but totally unreasonable nephew who has his own agenda for the house, and a persistent Max, intent on winning her back.

Salwater Nook has been the perfect escape, but Annie can't run from her problems forever. Will she give her first love a second chance? Or step into the promise of a new life?

Jenny Bayliss lives in a small seaside town in Kent with her husband, their children having left home for big adventures. She went back into education when she was thirty-nine and gained a first-class degree in Creative and Professional Writing from Canterbury Christ Church University. Jenny likes long walks along the seafront and baking days, especially when it's cold outside. She is a stationery-obsessed coffee lover who doesn't believe in saving things for best and shamelessly wears party dresses to the supermarket. The Winter of Second Chances is Jenny's second novel.
