From the bestselling author of Summer at Shell Cottage comes The Year of Taking Chances, a novel full of warmth, humour and romance. Because love is always worth the risk . . . It's New Year's Eve, and Gemma and Spencer Bailey are throwing a house party. There's music, dancing, champagne and all their best friends under one roof. It's going to be a night to remember. Also at the party is Caitlin, who has returned to the village to pack up her much-missed mum's house and to figure out what to do with her life; and Saffron, a PR executive who's keeping a secret which no amount of spin can change. The three women bond over Gemma's dodgy cocktails and fortune cookies, and vow to make this year their best one yet. But as the months unfold, Gemma, Saffron and Caitlin find themselves tested to their limits by shocking new developments. Family, love, work, home - all the things they've taken for granted are thrown into disarray. Under pressure, they are each forced to rethink their lives and start over. But dare they take a chance on something new?

Time for Taking Chances: Leaving Germany as a Teenager after the War is an intimate account of a profound transition undertaken by a nineteen-year-old German boy immigrating to Canada in 1951 who saw no hope for his bombed-out country ever getting back on its feet. At the Canadian consulate in Hannover, in whose dramatic ruins he’d lived for six years after the Second World War, Otto Schmalz learned of the possibility for another chance. Canada, way out there on the other side of the Atlantic, needed electricians like him, they told him. His skills in this trade would allow him to immigrate. But after he arrived in a camp outside Montréal, Otto immediately felt cheated. Penniless, without a job, with no relatives or grasp of the language, this teenage immigrant realized the chance he’d taken in coming to Canada would be followed up with a whole lot more chance-taking, much of it in the company of other immigrants, whose help and friendship were always invaluable. Here is the immigrant’s story, a story that many people have experienced, and many more will.

Taking Chances (formerly Big Apple Dreams)- from Kamery Solomon, bestselling author of The God Chronicles and A Midsummer Night's Fling. "Taking Chancess was an eloquently written book. You can feel the desire of the theater in the details that the author describes. Plus the love triangle had you screaming for the other guy. The one who shares the passion and love for your deepest desire. I absolutely loved how she was able to engage the reader as if the were a member of an audience in a play that Marama was trying out for. Half way through you already have your mind made up on who you wanted her with. This was an excellent book and I would highly recommend it to anyone that has dreams and need the drive to reach them. Perseverance pays off if the end." ~Lisa Markson, Paranormal Bookworm "What happens when you follow your dreams? Sometimes they really do come true! Mara followed her dreams and moved to NYC to work in the theatre. And now I want to go to New York! I want to see Wicked (so I really did buy a ticket.) And I want to be kissed by the hot guy! Taking Chances will have you dreaming big and wanting more!" ~Raquel Auriemma, Roc N' Read Blurb: One dream. Two men. Three choices. Moving to New York has always been the fantasy for Mara Adams. Tall Buildings, bright lights, culture, and Broadway-she can't get enough of the fast life.

Michael Starkis, an equestrian rider, is badly injured in a car crash, needing twelve months off work and riding. His horse, Biscuit, was being looked after by a young woman, Penny Chance, who persuades him to return to riding despite his handicap of one leg being shorter when it was reset. They train together and form a relationship of love, but she is forced to leave to help on her family farm in Wales. He returns to work as an agricultural agent, still aiming to be on the Equestrian Olympic team. Eight years later, his aim fails as his new horse falls and has to be put down. That same day, he receives a call from a seven-year-old boy named Harry Chance, who is trying to save his mother from debt. He realises that Harry is his son, conceived on the only time he had sex with Penny. He returns and marries her, using his wealth to develop businesses together, including two inns, followed later by a brewery. The call to riding this time comes as an amateur steeplechase jockey, aiming to win the world-famous Grand National with a horse named Done Deal. A year before, Michael was asked to take a chance riding Red Royal, his business partner’s horse, in the same race. Will this race be his downfall?

This new edition has been fully updated, and includes information on top television shows, plus a new chapter on Probability for Lawyers."--BOOK JACKET.
