Everyone knows the first time you meet that special someone: Your eyes connect from across the room, and you smile and work up the courage to say hello. It’s a simple feat for most people, but not for Trevor Friessen, who struggles to fit into this world and thinks he always will—that is, until he meets a girl who is as different from him as she is the same.

“Our families and everyone around us, what they don’t understand is that we too feel love.”

This is the final part of Chance and Hope's trilogy. We left them in a good place at the end of Finding Hope. Now it's time to see how their story concludes.

Chance is starting to relax and to believe that he and Hope can have a future together. She's moving to Montana to be with him, but will a visit to Summer Lake help him decide to give Hope a chance—or will he find that he can't let go of the past?

Hope knows she's found the man she wants to spend the rest of her life with. Chance keeps talking about their future, but he's a man who doesn't make promises. Ever. She thinks he wants to marry her, but he isn't asking—and how can he? As far as she's concerned, saying "I do" is the most important promise you can make.

The future is looking bright for these two, but will the past always overshadow it?

Chance Encounter is the first book in A Chance and A Hope trilogy. These books are NOT meant to be read as standalones. If you like your entire story wrapped up in one book, you won't enjoy this one. This one is for you if you don't mind journeying with a character who has some healing to do before he's ready for his forever.

                                                        ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~


Chance knew love once—a long time ago. She died when they were eighteen and the best of him died with her. Since then his work on a ranch in Montana has allowed him to keep his distance from people and from happiness. Eighteen years later, he may be ready to start living again—maybe. He’s watched all his friends find love and embark on the next stage of their lives. Part of him would like to do the same; part of him would rather cling to the past.

He’s hoping that a trip to the Oregon Coast, and a couple of weeks away from his normal life, might help him figure out how he can move forward and maybe even be happy.

It’s taken him eighteen years to get to this point, but a chance encounter on the beach will make him want to figure it all out in just two weeks.

He’s come a long way, but can he really open his heart up to happiness—and to Hope?

                ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Chance Encounter is the first of three books in A Chance and a Hope Series.
These are not standalone reads. In fact, when you get to the end of this story, you may be faced with a cliffhanger – or you may not. The choice is yours!

What do I mean? Well, when you reach the end of Chapter Twenty you’ll be left with a warm and fuzzy Happy-For-Now. Then you’ll be faced with a choice – read on, all the way up to the edge of a cliff where I’ll leave you hanging, or stop right where you are. If you love a cliffy, you can have one. If you detest a cliffy, you don’t have to deal with it! And if you hate waiting for the next books in a trilogy, don't worry because the series is complete, you can grab Book Two straight away.

Stephen King’s second novel, the classic vampire bestseller ’SALEM’S LOT, tells the story of evil in small-town America. For the first time in a major trade edition, this terrifying novel is accompanied by previously unpublished material from King’s archive, two short stories, and eerie photographs that bring King’s fictional darkness and evil to vivid life.

When Stephen King’s classic thriller’SALEM’S LOT hit the stands in 1975, it thrilled and terrified millions of readers with tales of demonic evil in small-town America. Now, thirty years later and still scaring readers witless, ’SALEM’S LOT reemerges in a brilliant new edition, complete with photographs, fifty pages of deleted and alternate scenes, and two short stories related to the events of the novel.

While the original edition of ’SALEM’S LOT will forever be a premier horror classic, ’SALEM’S LOT: ILLUSTRATED EDITION, with the inclusion of material from King’s archive, is destined to become a classic in its own right and a must-have for all Stephen King fans. In this edition, the hair-raising story of Jerusalem’s Lot, a small town in Maine whose inhabitants succumb to the evil allure of a new resident, is told as the author envisioned it, complete with fifty pages of alternate and deleted scenes. With a new introduction by the author, two short stories related to the events and residents of Jerusalem’s Lot, the lavishly creepy photographs of Jerry Uelsmann, and a stunning new page design, this edition brings the story to life in words and pictures as never before.

No library will be complete without this ideal collector’s item for any King aficionado, the definitive illustrated edition of the great ’SALEM’S LOT.
