Second Time Around


Second Time Around
by Melody Carlson

“When empty-nester Marley Farrell inherits a rundown tourist shop, she never expects to rediscover her love for the funky coastal Oregon town–or her now-widowed teenage crush. With his help, she may just be able to renovate the shabby shop–and her lackluster love life”–



Who doesn’t love a second chance?

When Mallory Farrell inherits her grandmother’s run-down tourist shop in Portside, Oregon, she knows selling it is the only sensible thing to do. The place holds treasured memories for her, but it would take a fortune to restore it.

But when she learns that her childhood crush, Grayson Matthews, wants to buy the building to redevelop the funky town’s business district into a soulless, cookie-cutter outdoor mall, Mallory digs in her heels. With a lot of hard work and a little bit of help, she is sure she can renovate the property herself.

Though Mallory makes incredible progress turning the store into an eclectic home decor shop, she’s heartbroken when an exciting opportunity turns into a guaranteed nightmare. Should she surrender her dreams to Grayson’s bulldozers? Or is there a future for both of them in this charming seaside town?
