Here’s a first look at The Winter of Second Chances…

Annie Sharpe has it all – an acclaimed restaurant she owns with her handsome husband Max, and two gorgeous grown-up sons. But after one indiscretion too many, she leaves behind the only life she’s ever known.

In search of a fresh start, Annie takes up a position as a caretaker of a beach house on Kent’s beautiful south coast. The tight-knit village community soon feels like home – she even reopens the long-dormant café.

The only thorn in her side is John, the owner’s nephew, who has his own agenda for the house, and a persistent Max, intent on winning her back.

Annie can’t run from her problems forever. Will she give her first love a second chance? Or step into the promise of a new life?
