About this ebook

Come back to the orchard for a second-chance Pelican Bay holiday romance from USA TODAY Bestselling author Megan Matthews.

Molly -

No matter how hard I tried to forget the eldest Halliday son, memories of us together were never far. I do my best to avoid Oceanview Orchards in fear of running into Haden, but I can’t say no when my nephew begs me for a trip.

What should have been a quick visit to meet Santa turns my life upside down when Hayden and I meet again. He’s just as handsome as he was in high school, but he won’t stick around. Falling for Haden would be a disaster. He promises this time is different, but I can’t trust him not to break my heart again, especially after I learn about his other lies.


Haden -

My brother turned Oceanview Orchards into a thriving business. Now that he’s on his way to living his dream, it’s time to start mine. If only I could decide what I want out of life. After the holidays with my family it’s off to help with the cattle on a ranch out west. At least that’s the plan until Molly falls back into my life.

The girl I let get away after high school, she’s just as spectacular as the last time I saw her. Unfortunately, trying to spend time with her leads me down a roadway of lies, and before long, I’ve put the entire farm in jeopardy of being closed right before the biggest holiday of the year.

Can I fix my mistakes and show Molly I’m a man worthy of her love?

My dishonesty could cost me everything, but losing Molly again isn’t an option.


Instead of guns and explosions, enjoy this short Pelican Bay Christmas tale with snow, puppies, and second chance love for the holidays.

The author has given us a wonderful story that pulls us into the lives of Molly and Haden and does not let go. They had been in love once but had broken up. When she returns to town for the holidays, Haden hopes that she will give him a second chance. Is she willing to take a chance on him breaking her heart again?

Molly and Haden have a totally awkward but funny way of meeting each other again after he left town and left her broken hearted and always seeing him as the one that got away and while Haden is only back in town for a short visit things start to change when he sees Molly again and begins to be torn with what he thought he wanted to do next and the life he could have if he stayed. I really liked how this was not only a second chance love story but also about reconnecting with family and seeing that sometimes the life you thought you didn't want can change the older you get. Be ready for fun and loveable characters, a story that pulls at the heart strings and a love story that makes you sigh with happiness.

4.5 Stars This is a really good second chance story.. Molly and Haden are just so good together, the timing was just never right in the past. I really liked the way Molly was written, I just immediately was sucked in.
