Book Description

Sometimes, a Christmas miracle is needed.

Steve and Elizabeth have led lonely lives for many years. An unlikely encounter on a Christmas tree lot could change everything--if they have the courage to overcome a lifetime's doubt and fears.

Second Chance Christmas is a 9,000 word short story. It is the first in the Second Chance Love series, but can be read as a standalone story. There is no cliffhanger.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feel good Christmas story of lost love found December 29, 2013
By NJ
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was the first book I have read by Shawn Inmon. What a wonderful and touching Christmas story about couple, Steve and Elizabeth, that had known each other from middle school through their first year of college. Due to a death in the family that caused Steve to have to drop out of college they lost touch for 20 years. The meet by accident on Christmas Eve in a Christmas tree lot 20 years later and this is the story of what happened. I was glad to find, after reading the book and liking it so much, that there will be four more follow-up books in the story of Steve and Elizabeth coming out in 2014. I look forward to reading more of Shawn Inmon's books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Will Keep Us Together July 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A lost love from twenty years ago. A guy and a girl who are both miserable at Christmas. A chance encounter in a Christmas tree lot where the trees are dropping needles like flies in a greasy spoon diner.

Yeah, it might sound like the makings of a Lifetime movie, and hey, there's nothing wrong with that. Even as a man of *cough* years of age, I recognize that a romantic story is one of the most satisfying reads you can find.

This is the beginning of a series that, at this point, includes "Second Chance Valentine" and "Second Chance Summer." Read 'em all! They're a great continuing story with two very likable protagonists that remind me of movies from the 1940s, when love stories didn't have to involve one of the characters dying or having to choose between a vampire and a werewolf.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great story January 30, 2014
By Sarah
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't normally read short stories, I find that I just start to get into them and they end! This was different though. I got into it straight away and as it is part of a series, it doesn't end at the end of this book. Elizabeth and Steve were childhood friends but lost touch when Steve had to leave college. 20 years later, a chance encounter lets them continue where they left off. The socioeconomic differences are vast though, leaving Elizabeth unsure and Steve trying not to force anything on her. I love the name of the book store that Elizabeth runs. I look forward to reading the Valentines story of these two.

This is a wonderful heartwarming story. A pure delight to read. Shawn has a way of bringing his characters to life. One can picture themselves in that Christmas tree lot looking on, or the elation of finding a lost love. It brings the reader right into the story looking on and cheering them on.

Beautiful style, beautifully written. Thank you Shawn, for sharing your talent with us. You have taken us once again, on a journey straight from the heart.

I so look forward to reading more in the future.

Merry Christmas to you and yours.

5.0 out of 5 stars A story I'll treat myself to every Christmas season! December 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very refreshing read. The story was great from beginning to end. The characters were so real - so normal - which I absolutely love in a story. No crazy fluff. Real people with real lives. I love the way the author writes. He has a way of making sure you can clearly visualize the characters and their lives....giving the reader an opportunity to live the story. It is a story I'll keep on my Kindle and treat myself to every Christmas season. Loved it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great imagery, and a very enjoyable read! December 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great short story. The writing is such that it paints the imagery of the settings onto the canvas of your mind. From the Christmas tree lot to the residences, the sights and sounds leap off the page and seem vivid. I also enjoyed Shawn’s ‘Author’s Note’ at the end, which provided some insight into the writing. A very enjoyable read!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great holiday tale! December 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I have to say that I love this story! It has everything you want in a holiday romance. The history of the characters unfolds clearly without dragging on or confusing the reader with a lack of detail. As a reader it is easy to relate to the characters! They feel real right away. I love when characters get closure and you just know they are going to be happy. Wonderful story. I can't say enough good things about it.
