Hello everyone! Joan Kilby here. My latest release from Tule Publishing is SECOND CHANCE DAD, Book 3 in my Sweetheart, Montana series. The books are stand-alone stories but are connected by family and friendship groups. All the books have a holiday theme — in the case of SECOND CHANCE DAD it’s Thanksgiving.
Newly retired pro football player, Daniel Hunter, returns to Sweetheart after years away to open an eco-resort. He hires his high school sweetheart, Sarah Mills, as manager. Sarah also happens to be the mother of his biological son, and Daniel wants to reconnect with both mom and child. Sarah is widowed now and while she still has feelings for Daniel, she is equally protective of her little boy. How can she let Daniel get close when she knows – or thinks she does – that he’ll never be content for long in a small town? As the couple work together to create a Thanksgiving to remember for their families, friends and guests, she realises she’s falling for him again, only now there are two hearts on the line, hers and her son’s. Can Daniel prove to her that this time, he’ll stick around?
Fall is one of my favourite seasons, and Thanksgiving, with it’s family-oriented themes, was a natural fit for this sweet, second-chance at love story. Daniel is a retired football player, and besides roast turkey and pumpkin pie, nothing says Thanksgiving more than football. I loved writing this book and had a lot of fun with the theme, from little kids playing in colorful fallen leaves, to the elaborate but homey Thanksgiving dinner, to resolving family tensions, to the pick-up football game with the hero and heroine good-naturedly trash talking each other from opposing teams.

P.S. LONG LOST CHRISTMAS, Book 1 in this series is now a Hallmark original movie. It airs starting November 19 on Hallmark Movies and Mysteries Channel.
