Everyone deserves a second chance…
Callie Andris’ childhood was less than perfect. Thanks to her Aunt Staci, she learned there were still people worth trusting. The unexpected arrival of her cousin, Trish, who she hasn’t seen in years, tests her resolve that everyone deserves a second chance.
Will Matthews has lived in Sampson’s Quarry for nearly two years. He has turned his interest in woodworking to start his own business. A rumor about an incident from his past has been spread throughout town and may threaten everything he has worked for, including his budding relationship with Callie.
After an argument with Will, Callie’s instinct is to push him away. She keeps busy dealing with her business and the strange behavior of her cousin. When days go by without hearing from Will, she realizes that pushing him away is the last thing she wants. As things in Sampson’s Quarry become even stranger, Callie hopes that she will get the chance to tell Will how she really feels.
Sophie Tucker was born and raised in Brisbane, Australia.
After graduating from university with a degree in biology, Sophie decided to take a year off to travel the world. During those travel adventures, she met a handsome young Canadian named Peter Tucker. It was love at first sight! The rest was history! They returned to Peter’s hometown in western Canada, and shortly after were married. Sophie never did put her biology degree to work! Three young children kept her very busy at home.
Sophie has always been a voracious reader and at one time she dabbled in writing children’s stories; mainly writing them for her own children. Now that she and Peter are retired, she spends the day writing, while he gardens or golfs. She’s always had an appetite for cozy mysteries, so it’s no wonder it’s the genre she specializes in. You will often find Sophie in her solarium, laptop perched on her knees, or on sunny days in the garden, writing away. Oftentimes, her two dogs, Poppy and Penny, will be at her side.
