Back to Before

Book 1 in the Chances Inlet series

Back to Before takes readers back to Chances Inlet,

North Carolina, the scene of Foolish Games.  In this

book, Gavin gets his second chance at love.


Chances Inlet, North Carolina, has an infamous

power for second chances. But its charms are lost

on the town’s favorite son—until she comes along…


When his father’s sudden death puts his family’s

construction business in serious debt, architect

Gavin McAlister is forced to put his dream career

in New York on hold. Making matters worse, his

fiancée calls it quits. Desperate to return to his

big-city life, he discovers an opportunity to save his

family, one that has him reluctantly starring in a

home restoration TV show.


Former soap star Ginger Walsh hopes this job as a

TV makeup artist will lead to better things. So far

it’s only brought her to a hamlet full of people who

don’t like her—except Gavin. After a wild night out leads to Ginger waking up in Gavin’s loft—and the rest of town talking—the two of them soon wonder if getting back to before is what they want. Because being in each other’s arms certainly feels like what they need.
