What she hasn’t counted on is running into her old summer fling, the one girl she could never forget.
Sanne is freshly heartbroken, and instead of having to deal with her parents’ pitying looks over Christmas dinner, she decides to still go on the winter holiday she’d booked, even if it means going on her own. She can entertain herself well enough, and maybe some fresh air will clear her head of all the darkness from the last months.
But when she sees Josie at the cafe, she can’t help how her heart beats faster or how much she wants the other woman to hold her.
What starts as a shared meal at a cafe, followed by the first snow of the season, could turn into much more.
They lost their chance of being together when they spent the summers on the island as teens, but can they take it now that they’re adults?
Can they take the chance amid knee-high snow and Christmas decorations?
Second Chance at Christmas is the first book in the small town (or more like small island) romance series Seasons on the Island, following the stories of women who fall in love with other women, and it takes place on the Dutch mudflat islands.
Emily Engberts writes adult romances with queer women who won’t apologise for being different and who celebrate their differences.
She is Dutch and has lived in the Netherlands for almost all her life apart from when she studied English and Creative Writing at the University of Chichester in England. This really inspired her to make writing her career and has been working towards that goal ever since.
Emily currently lives in Groningen with her partner and lovely cats, and if she’s not writing, you can find her playing videogames or working on one of her many creative projects.
