Second Chances: The Kate Corbin Story
All Kate Corbin ever wanted in life was to be married to Mack and have a family. For nearly twenty years she had the perfect life; good marriage, great kid, beautiful country home, and the best in-laws ever. But all that would abruptly end with the accidental death of her 16-year-old son, Caleb. Three months later, Mack is killed in a coal mining accident. The trauma and loss was too much for Kate, causing a mental breakdown. After spending twelve months in a psychiatric ward, and not a clue of what to do with the rest of her life, Kate loads up Caleb’s Saint Bernard dog and heads for Canada. Seeking a life of seclusion, she soon learns there is danger in the Caledon Hills. But there’s also the handsome next door neighbor, Hank Diamond.
A widower and bit of loner, Hank Diamond is a retired military special ops instructor. He resents the gorgeous but smart-mouthed new neighbor buying property that adjoins his land, property he had tried but failed to acquire. But more than this, he hates the gut feeling he gets whenever she’s around and the sparks fly between them. Can these two unlucky souls have a second chance at love?
