How do you find the strength to start again?

Madeline's world caves in when her husband, daughter, and sister are ripped away in one fell swoop.

Trapped in a limbo of grief and loneliness, she realizes that to survive, she needs to fight her way back to some kind of life.

She throws her belongings into storage, sells her house, and heads to a new-to-her small town. There she invests every dime she has to open what had been her and her daughter's shared dream: an upscale secondhand, consignment, and upcycling store. It has to work, or else—No. She can't think about that. It has to work.

The birth of Madeline's heart-healing Second Chance Shop is not without pain. And the clock is ticking on whether the shop can support her. Still, she is floored to find things she'd lost hope of ever experiencing again: laughter, dear friends—including a fat, slightly cantankerous cat and a distinguished old yellow lab—and surprising moments of joy.

She even has a second chance for love.

If she's brave enough—and if she can come to terms with her loss, shed her guilt, and fully embrace living.

If you enjoy emotionally compelling stories about family relationships, women's friendships, romance for women over forty, and the pets who bring us so much joy, you're going to love USA Today bestselling author Ev Bishop's The Second Chance Shop, a brand-new small-town contemporary romance series about overcoming heartbreak, starting over later in life, and finding home again. . . .

About the Author

Ev Bishop is an award-winning, USA Today bestselling author, best known for her binge-worthy small-town contemporary romances. Readers describe her books as “full of humor, love and wisdom,” set in places “where breathtaking scenery and the magic of love are the best medicine for the soul.”

She is shocked (in the best of ways!) to have fourteen published novels under her belt because writing stories for a living has been her fantasy job ever since she was a little kid. Dreams do come true!

A weird (and delightful—ha-ha!) combination of complete, head-in-the-clouds, always dreaming romantic and hard slogging survivalist-pragmatist, Ev loves the outdoors (especially water), any and all garden-related talk and work, cooking (and eating!), and making all sorts of random things—especially out of upcycled or reclaimed items.

She hopes you love Madeline in Something Old as much as she does and that you’ll catch up with her and Gwen in Something New, The Second Chance Shop, Book 2.
