A contemporary romance about second chances at lost love


Julia Dunphy’s husband just left her for the second time, her thirteen-year-old won’t stop swearing in public, and to top it all off, her four-year-old just asked to buy condoms. Needless to say, this isn’t how she expected her life to pan out. Then Julia's new work in an aquarium shop washes up old memories of a whale watching business she once imagined - and of William Quinn, the man she imagined it with. When she learns that William has made a success of their ideas, she wonders if it's too late to finally make a success of their relationship. But Julia's already blown her first two chances at happiness with William, so a third one seems like wishful thinking. Then she uses her prowess as a paralegal to save William's business, and when he shows up to thank her, she dares to wonder - is another chance with him possible, after all?

More raves...


Dinner is gonna be late tonight... got totally caught up in your book.



I found your book to be well written and fast paced enough to keep me turning the pages (I finished the whole thing in about 3 sessions!!). You painted the characters in such a way that I really felt I knew them and of course was hoping it would all turn out for the best for Will and Julia.
