About This Book
In this moving novel about the power of second chances, Jean Stone proves that it’s never too late to go after the one that got away.
 
For every woman, there is a first love. And for Meg, Zoe, and Alissa, that love has never been forgotten. Now these three friends have made a pact. In the next six months, they vow to reconnect with the men who touched their lives so long ago.
 
Meg is blessed with success, yet lives a life without love, haunted by the only man she’s ever wanted, a man who’s still irresistible . . . and seemingly out of reach. Zoe is a once-prominent film star, desperate for a comeback and scared to discover what has become of her hometown sweetheart—the one person who means more to her than fame. Alissa, the darling of Atlanta society, seems to have it all. Then, in one shocking moment, she finds that her life is a sham and that she left the only man who ever really loved her. Now these women will risk everything—their families, their reputations, and their hearts—to take a chance on the alluring magic of first love.
 
Includes a special message from the editor, as well as excerpts from these Loveswept titles: The Notorious Lady Anne, Along Came Trouble, and Strictly Business.

    Once Upon a Bride

    Once Upon a Bride
    Can love, romance, and marriage really be better the second time around? That’s what four best friends are about to find out in Jean Stone’s sexy, smart, and poignantly funny new novel about saying “I do” all over again. It’s an idea just crazy enough to work–a wedding-planning business tailored for second weddings run by four single best friends who’ve loved, who’ve lost, and who are ready to start again. A successful Boston publicist, Jo Lyons has returned to West Hope after a devastating breakup left her career and her heart broken. Now she’ll try to pick up the pieces among the three women she knows best. Lily, the fun-loving, free-spirited eternal optimist. Sarah, the strong-willed unconventional artist. Elaine, the would-be domestic diva. It’s Elaine’s upcoming second marriage that will be the inspiration and test model for their new business, Second Chances. For Jo it just may be an unexpected second chance of a different, far more romantic kind, but only if she’s willing to give love–and life–another try. From the Paperback edition.

    Four Steps to the Altar

    Four Steps to the Altar
    They say true love is priceless, but is it worth fifty million dollars? With Second Chances, their wedding planning business, starting to take off, four best friends must decide whether they’ll take some second chances of their own. Free-spirited Lily finds herself forced to choose between her sure-thing inheritance and a chance at true love; the no-longer-predictable Elaine surprises everyone–including herself–when romance comes calling from her past; Sarah, the uncompromisingly unconventional artist, finds herself contemplating the most unexpected choice of all; and the always-clear-eyed Jo suddenly finds herself second-guessing her own second chance at happily-ever-after. The choice for each of them is “I do” or “I don’t,” and the decision will change their lives. Breakups, makeups, and romance at every turn–life always offers up its best surprises to those who leave themselves open to the possibility of second chances.

    Twice Upon a Wedding

    Twice Upon a Wedding
    Four best friends, one risky business, and a chance to say “I do” one more time. . . With their fledgling business Second Chances facing its first big break, four best friends turned wedding consultants face second chances–and challenges–of their own. For always-practical, always-predictable Elaine, it’s a time for a total makeover . . . but is the new “dream-her” really her? For Lily, the free-spirited, free-spending sprite, it was the chance to find the one thing missing from her life that not even money could buy. And while Sarah, the self-reliant artist, faces a crisis that proves just how much she needs her friends, ex-publicist Jo is tantalizingly closer to true love than she can ever possibly imagine. Ex-husbands, computer dating, teenage kids–the world’s much different than when they first said “I do,” but one thing’s the same: they’re all hoping their second chance will be a charm.
