Fantasy Urban | Contemporary

On the night of her 35th birthday, Flora Brunelli is full of regrets. The celebrations have turned sour and life hasn't gone according to plan. She wishes she could be 20 again. Then she finds herself zapped back in time, landing in the summer of 1998 when she was 20 years old. The Spice Girls are at the top of the charts and the X–Files is the hit TV show. It's also the week Flora's life unravelled.

For Flora, this is a chance to change her future: win back the love of her life, stay friends with her former best mate and succeed in landing her dream job. It should be easy. But her ex's best friend, Lance Devic, who she never really noticed before, keeps popping up and messing with her head. And after a while Flora begins to wonder if living in the past really will deliver her the happiness she seeks?

Re: Second Chance

It is easier to those pivotal moments in hindsight..

I never thought of getting a second chance through time travel---interesting concept.
Sue Farrell 12:20pm March 31, 2013)

I loved taking a step back in time with you, and knowing that you listed one of my favorite Authors, I KNOW I'm going to love your book!! I hope that you have a very nice Easter, and I'll make sure your book is on my TBR list!! The story line is great, and is a book I can picture myself curled up with, along with my kittens, with the phone turned off, and no interruptions!!
Peggy Roberson 12:39pm March 31, 2013)

Sounds interesting. Too bad you can't do that in real life
Sandy Giden 12:53pm March 31, 2013)

I love reading about second chances. I agree with Sandy too bad we can't
go back to correct what went wrong. Blessings and Happy Easter!
Christine Dunham 1:03pm March 31, 2013)

Congratulations on the publication of your new book! Second Chance seems like a very interesting read. I would love to be able to travel back in time for a second chance.
Bonnie H 3:19pm March 31, 2013)

Sad to think of time travel to 1998 when it seems like
yesterday to me. However it was a good time in my life and
sure a lot of memories would be brought back. Interesting
Vicki Hancock 3:50pm March 31, 2013)

i love the same books you do! i haven't read point horror though...
May Pau 3:52pm March 31, 2013)

Who doesn't love the 90s, great books, great music, great movies. Love the 90s.
Carla Carlson 4:09pm March 31, 2013)

Sounds really interesting ....
Liesl Lane 4:31pm March 31, 2013)

If I were to go back in time, it would be further back than 1998. That wasn't that great a time for me.
Carol Woodruff 4:31pm March 31, 2013)

Second chances to me are a way of redemption. If I didn't succeed the first time. I know I can the next time.
Kai Wong 4:46pm March 31, 2013)

Book sounds very interesting. Thanks for a chance to win. Happy Easter!
Linda Hall 4:52pm March 31, 2013)

would love to have a second change on many things.
Robbie Bauldree 5:14pm March 31, 2013)

I'm trying to remember what I did in 1998, especially during the summer. I remember we went to the beach
Dwight Younger 5:50pm March 31, 2013)

I don't think that I want a do over on my life. It didn't
always go the way I thought it would but I've spent 47 years
with the man I love and raised 5 wonderful children. Now I
have 6 grandchildren that I wouldn't give up for anything.
Mary Hay 5:59pm March 31, 2013)

Easter Sunday great contest
Kent Cook 6:01pm March 31, 2013)

Thanks for all the lovely comments! Glad others feel nostalgic for the 90s too and like the idea of the chance for a step back in time. Peggy, curling up with a book with your kittens sounds blissful! Love your name, Carla Carlson - wink! Sad to hear 98 wasn't your year, Carol. And Mary - fabulous, thought-provoking comments!!
Carla Caruso 7:33pm March 31, 2013)

i love the sounds of your book
Debbi Shaw 8:00pm March 31, 2013)

I think your book sounds great. I know that there are times when all of us wish that we could go back in time --- but would we really want to?
Renee Grandinetti 9:07pm March 31, 2013)

i think of what it would be like to go back but know what you do today.....then I like today and keep the past as fond memories.
Lisa Fitzgibbons 9:38pm March 31, 2013)

I think we should all get one do-over in life!
Good luck and happy writing!
Tracie Travis 10:26pm March 31, 2013)

I was on line in 1996 but most people weren't, similarly there were mobile phones but the size of bricks, and they didn't text... quite a lot of change! I think the TV was better though.
Clare O'Beara 11:12am April 1, 2013)

Everyone gets an "oops"... but some of us need a few backups to get us through the years.
Donna Holmberg 10:58pm April 1, 2013)

Thanks again for the lovely comments! I agree, Renee - sometimes the past looks better through rose-tinted glasses. And good comment, Lis,a re 'I like today and keep the past as fond memories'!! I've had a few oopses too, Donna! I agree re the TV shows in the 90s, Clare - they seemed more heartfelt somehow. And wouldn't it be nice, Tracie, to all get at least ONE do-over in life!
Carla Caruso 5:14am April 2, 2013)

I do love a feisty heroine. SECOND CHANCE sounds fabulous.
Mary Preston 6:26am April 3, 2013)

I am new to your books, but what I have read are great!
C Culp 2:44pm April 3, 2013)

Thank you, Carletta!!
