When Nate Desantro offers him a job fixing up a cabin one hundred miles away, he jumps at the opportunity. Peace and solitude in the woods away from busybodies and do-gooders, is exactly what he needs to contemplate his future.<br /><br /> But Pete doesn’t expect to find a beautiful woman staying at the cabin.<br /><br /> Elissa Cerdi has escaped to the Blacksworth cabin to heal her broken heart. As Gloria Blacksworth’s former caregiver, she’s agreed to honor the dead woman’s last request by mailing letters to select residents of Magdalena. When Elissa meets Pete, she doesn’t know he has ties to Magdalena, and she certainly doesn’t know the final letter she plans to mail is about his father.<br /><br /> Pete and Elissa are both in need of healing and maybe that’s why they agree to shut down the outside world and pretend nothing exists but what’s inside the cabin. Could that also be why they’re able to open up to one another, talk about disappointments, hurts, betrayals, and hopes?<br /><br /> Because it’s all pretend?<br /><br /> Is that why passion consumes them, burns them with a need they’ve never felt before?<br /><br /> Is it so powerful because it isn’t real?<br /><br /> Except it is.<br /><br /> When Pete uncovers the truth about Elissa’s part in Gloria Blacksworth’s cruel scheme for vengeance, he feels betrayed and questions everything that happened in the cabin. As weeks pass and the couple forge separate lives, Pete must decide if he can open his heart once again to forgiveness and love.<br /><br /> This <b>iBooks Edition</b> contains: a bonus scene with a different plotline involving Elissa Cerdi and a stalker ex-boyfriend.<br /><br /> Note: Gloria Blacksworth’s letters aren’t the only ones floating around Magdalena.

Description :  <i>Heartache. Betrayal. Forgiveness. Redemption. It’s time to head back to Magdalena, New York, and spend a little time with the people we love to love and even a few we love to hate.&#xa0;</i><br /><br /> Gina Servetti was raised to believe she wasn’t enough—not thin enough, not pretty enough, not clever enough. She’s more comfortable with a spreadsheet than a conversation and doesn’t trust easily, especially where men are concerned, most notably the good-looking, smooth-talking ones like Ben Reed.<br /><br /> When city boy Ben Reed arrives in Magdalena, he’s not planning a long-term stay in a town filled with too many busybodies and too little excitement. He just needs things to settle down in Philly for a few months before he returns to his old life and his plan to win back his ex-wife. But once he gets to know the people in this town, he starts to care about them: one in particular—Gina Servetti. The longer he’s around her, the more he realizes she’s so much more than a woman with a scowl and a sharp tongue. She’s real and honest, and as afraid of trusting as he is.<br /><br /> But can Ben and Gina open up and take a risk for a chance at real love? Well, if the rest of the town has anything to say about it, and they always do, this couple will take the big leap and end with an “I do”!<br /><br /> And would the story be complete without checking in on Harry Blacksworth’s latest debacle…ahem…adventure? Harry’s moved his brood to Magdalena and is taking advice but, thankfully, not fashion lessons from Pop Benito. That spells trouble on so many levels. Oh, but it’s going to be interesting…<br /><br /> Join me as we peek into the lives of some of our favorites: Pop Benito, Lily, Nate and Christine Desantro, Harry and Greta Blacksworth, Mimi Pendergrass, Bree Kinkaid…and many more.<br /><br /> See you in Magdalena!<br /><br /> <b>Truth In Lies Series:</b><br /> Book One: <i>A Family Affair</i><br /> Book Two: <i>A Family Affair: Spring</i><br /> Book Three: <i>A Family Affair: Summer</i><br /> Book Four: <i>A Family Affair: Fall</i><br /> Book Five: <i>A Family Affair: Christmas, a novella</i><br /> Book Six: <i>A Family Affair: Winter</i><br /> Book Seven: <i>A Family Affair: The Promise</i>&#xa0;<br /> Book Eight: <i>A Family Affair: The Secret</i>&#xa0;<br /> Book Nine: <i>A Family Affair: The Wish</i><br /> Book Ten: <i>A Family Affair: The Gift</i><br /> Book Eleven: <i>A Family Affair: The Weddings</i><br /> Book Twelve: <i>A Family Affair: The Return</i><br /><br /> <b>NEW FEATURE:</b> Magdalena’s growing!

Secondary characters support the “stars”; make them more vibrant and compelling. But when the story ends, I’m often left wondering what they’d do if <i>they</i> were in the “spotlight”.<br /><br /> That’s why I gathered up a handful of “people” from That Second Chance series and sent them to Magdalena.<br /><br /> Here’s the entire <b>That Second Chance Series</b> and how they appear in the “AFA” Books:&#xa0;<br /> Book One: <i>Pulling Home</i> – (Also prequel to <i>A Family Affair: The Promise</i>)&#xa0;<br /> Book Two: <i>The Way They Were</i> – (Also prequel to <i>A Family Affair: The Secret</i>)<br /> Book Three: <i>Simple Riches</i> – (Also prequel to <i>A Family Affair: Winter</i>)&#xa0;<br /> Book Four: <i>Paradise Found</i> – (Also prequel to <i>A Family Affair: The Wish</i>)<br /> Book Five: <i>Not Your Everyday Housewife</i> – (Also prequel to <i>A Family Affair: The Gift</i>)<br /> Book Six: <i>The Butterfly Garden</i> – (Also prequel to <i>A Family Affair: The Return</i>)

Description :  Magdalena, New York.&#xa0;<br /> Home of memories long buried, steamy nights, and one regrettable summer…<br /> Grace Romano had been seventeen, impressionable, innocent to the power of attraction and desire.&#xa0;<br /> Max Ruhland taught her about both. He loved Grace and thought they had a future together, until she crushed his heart and told him he wasn’t part of her life plan.<br /> Twenty-two years later, Grace Romano Clarke is a widow with two children and a pile of broken dreams. When her aunt dies, she must return to Magdalena, the town she’d rather forget, to honor the woman’s last wishes: stay in her house for thirty days, and complete a list that, according to her aunt, will reveal a bit about life and maybe reveal something about herself, too. What Grace doesn’t know but will find out soon enough is that Max Ruhland must stay in the house with her and help complete the list!<br /> Max Ruhland isn’t the same lovesick puppy from the wrong side of the tracks who had his heart broken all those years ago. He’s a wealthy, successful businessman who owes his good fortune to Grace’s aunt, the woman who never gave up on him. Max can have any woman he wants, but he’s never forgotten Grace, or how she hurt him. Now he’ll have to spend the next thirty days with her—in close quarters—to honor her aunt’s last wishes, and he’s not looking forward to it.<br /> It’s going to get very interesting as the town watches and wonders what’s going on between those two. Of course, Pop Benito understands exactly what’s happening in the house on Bayberry Street, even if Max and Grace don’t. He’s the one who helped Grace’s aunt create the thirty-day list, which he insists will finally get this couple their happily-ever-after!<br /><br /> Are you wondering how Pete Finnegan and Elissa Cerdi’s Christmas wedding plans are progressing? Well, they <i>aren’t</i> progressing. Seems some people in town can’t forgive Elissa for partnering with Gloria Blacksworth, and they’re determined to shred her reputation. Plus, Elissa is suffering from a case of mistrust every time a woman talks to her fiancé, and that’s driving Pete crazy. They better figure things out quick, or Elissa won’t be walking down the aisle…<br /><br /> See you in Magdalena!<br /> BONUS MATERIAL: Included in this e-book is the first chapter of <i>Strangers Like Us</i>, Book 1 in the Reunion Gap series.

There’s heartache, betrayal, forgiveness, and redemption, all wrapped up and waiting for you.&#xa0;<br /><br /> Alexandra “Alex” Chamberlain is a big city girl who knows nothing about close-knit families, sibling rivalry, or receiving an unsolicited opinion in the name of family. She’s been raised by an aunt and uncle who’ve provided her with a wealthy lifestyle and a fancy education, but have withheld what she craved most—love and acceptance. Her uncle has taught her to disregard everything but the bottom line on a balance sheet and she’ll do anything to earn his approval. She prides herself on excelling at her job which is selecting small towns to buy, flatten, and replace with luxury resorts. When Alex decides to investigate Restalline, Pennsylvania, as a potential site for the next resort, she enters the town under the guise of a researcher gathering information for a documentary. Her uncle wants this project badly, and she’s not going to disappoint him.<br /><br /> This town should be like all the others. Only it isn’t. This town has the Androviches, a family who values hard work, honesty, and doing the right thing. And this town has Nick Androvich, the town doctor with a battered heart who doesn’t quite trust her, but can’t deny the mutual attraction.&#xa0;<br /><br /> Oh, but it’s going to get messy when the truth about Alex’s real purpose for being in Restalline sneaks out...and the truth always does. But fear not, the town is not going to sit by quietly and watch this meant-to-be-together couple lose their happily ever after…<br /><br /> <b>That Second Chance Series:</b><br /> Book One: <i>Pulling Home</i> – (Also prequel to <i>A Family Affair: The Promise</i>)&#xa0;<br /> Book Two: <i>The Way They Were</i> – (Also prequel to <i>A Family Affair: The Secret</i>)<br /> Book Three: <i>Simple Riches</i> – (Also prequel to <i>A Family Affair: Winter</i>)&#xa0;<br /> Book Four: <i>Paradise Found</i> – (Also prequel to <i>A Family Affair: The Wish</i>)<br /> Book Five: <i>Not Your Everyday Housewife</i> – (Also prequel to <i>A Family Affair: The Gift</i>)<br /> Book Six: <i>The Butterfly Garden</i> – (Also prequel to <i>A Family Affair: The Return</i>)<br /><br /> <b>BONUS MATERIAL:</b> Included in this e-book is the first 2 chapters of <i>Paradise Found,</i> the next book in this series.

Description :  <b><i>Heartache. Betrayal. Forgiveness. Redemption...</i></b><i> It's time to head back to Magdalena, New York, and spend a little time with the people we love to love and even a few we love to hate.</i><br /><br /> Michael Androvich and Elise Pentani should have been married and working on their “happily-ever-after” but fate intervened and stole their chance. Can the residents of Magdalena help them get it back and give them a second chance?<br /><br /> On the day Michael stands at the altar before family, friends, and most of the town of Restalline, Pennsylvania, he’s prepared to pledge his life, love, and fidelity to the woman who owns his heart. There’s only one thing missing—the bride.<br /><br /> Elise loves Michael truly and completely, but there’s a tiny piece of her that believes he’ll fall back into his “bad boy” ways. When a threat from his past visits her, Elise lets doubt rule and skips her own wedding.<br /> Nursing a broken heart and determined to forget the woman he can’t forget, Michael heads to Magdalena, New York, to secure a business deal for his family’s lumber company. He’s not prepared for the endless questions and inquisitive nature of the residents who remind him an awful lot of his hometown.<br /><br /> Just when Michael has gotten the town to accept the fact that he’s not talking about his past or the reason for his surly disposition, his ex-fiancée shows up with an apology he doesn’t want to hear and certainly doesn’t want to believe.

Price :  $9.99
Release Date :  2015-10-27
Description :  Bestselling romance and women's fiction author, Mary Campisi, brings readers Books 1-3 of That Second Chance series in a boxed set. Her small town romances center on family life, friendship, forgiveness, and of course, second chances, as they explore the issues of today's contemporary women. And if you're following Mary's "A Family Affair" saga, (Truth in Lies series), the stories in this boxed set are prequels to the A Family Affair books!<br /><br /> Sometimes we're lucky enough to get that second chance--in life and in love. That Second Chance Series are stand-alone stories of strong women who battle heartache and loss with courage and determination to find new paths and true love. They share a common theme: belief in the beauty of that second chance.<br /><br /> <b><i>PULLING HOME</i></b> - She'll risk anything to save her child...even the truth.<br /><br /> It's taken nine years and a cross-country move, but Audra Valentine Wheyton has kept her secrets safe. She's created the perfect life: a husband who loves her, a daughter she adores, and a position as head writer for an award-winning daytime soap. When her husband dies suddenly, Audra returns to her hometown for the funeral and faces a community that has not forgotten her meager beginnings and the man who has never forgiven her for marrying his brother.<br /><br /> Jack Wheyton is a successful pediatric neurosurgeon who is about to become engaged when Audra walks back into his life with her daughter. He forgave his brother long ago for taking something that had been his, something he hadn't even realized he wanted until it was gone. But forgiving Audra is another story...and forgetting her? Near impossible.<br /><br /> When a shattering illness strikes Audra's daughter, she turns to Jack to save her child and risks exposing a secret that will change their lives forever.<br /><br /> <b><i>THE WAY THEY WERE</i></b> is Book Two of That Second Chance Series.<br /> They promised to love one another forever, but tragedy tore them apart. Now, destiny may just bring them back together.<br /><br /> At eighteen, Rourke Flannigan and Kate Redmond thought they'd spend the rest of their lives together--until a family tragedy tore them apart. Fourteen years have passed, and they've both carved out separate lives hundreds of miles apart--hers as a wife and mother, his as a successful, driven businessman. But once a year, Kate pulls out a red velvet journal and writes a letter, which she'll never send, to the man who still owns her heart. Once a year, on the anniversary of the first and only night they made love, Rourke permits himself to read the annual investigative report detailing an ordinary day in Kate's life.<br /><br /> When a subcontractor at one of Rourke's holding companies is killed, Rourke decides to pay the widow a visit and offer condolences, never dreaming the widow will be Kate. As they embark on a cautious journey of rediscovery, one far greater than they could have imagined, secrets and lies threaten to destroy their newfound closeness--forever.<br /><br /> <b><i>SIMPLE RICHES</i></b> is Book Three of That Second Chance Series.<br /><br /> Alexandra "Alex" Chamberlain is a big city girl who knows nothing about close-knit families, sibling rivalry, or receiving an unsolicited opinion in the name of family. She's been raised by an aunt and uncle who've provided her with a wealthy lifestyle and a fancy education, but have withheld what she craved most--love and acceptance. Her uncle has taught her to disregard everything but the bottom line on a balance sheet and she'll do anything to earn his approval. She prides herself on excelling at her job which is selecting small towns to buy, flatten, and replace with luxury resorts. When Alex decides to investigate Restalline, Pennsylvania, as a potential site for the next resort, she enters the town under the guise of a researcher gathering information for a documentary. Her uncle wants this project badly, and she's not going to disappoint him.<br /><br /> This town should be like all the others. Only it isn't. This town has the Androviches, a family who values hard work, honesty and doing the right thing.

When he returns to Reunion Gap to take over his father’s company, he’s determined to uncover and right the wrongs his father committed.

Description :  <i>The only woman he’s ever trusted is about to betray him…</i>&#xa0;<br /><br /> Luke Donovan is the irresistible bad boy every woman wants, and no woman can catch. Long term? Marriage? Children? No thanks, not interested. Until he meets Helena Montrey. There’s something about her reserved manner and fresh-faced beauty that pulls him in, obliterates past notions of love and relationships and makes him want to commit—to her. Damn but he’s finally fallen in love! Gone are the bad-boy ways and reckless wandering, replaced with professions of forever and a vow to become respectable. It’s time to face up to past mistakes. Returning to his hometown of Reunion Gap and the family he deserted is the first step. Besides, Luke wants his family to meet Helena; the woman who changed his life.&#xa0;<br /><br /> Too bad he doesn’t know she’s not who she says she is.&#xa0;<br /><br /> After her fiancé’s betrayal makes her question her ability to tell an honest man from a liar, Helena Montrey shies away from men. Then she meets Luke Donovan. Her heart wants to tell him she’s not the struggling waitress and wannabe-writer he thinks she is, but the creator of the well-known and very lucrative Annabelle Grace Greeting Card line. But her brain forces her to wait until she’s sure the former bad boy with an admitted penchant for the open roads and constant change, is in this for keeps.&#xa0;<br /><br /> When the couple arrives in Reunion Gap, the Donovans are waiting for them with a lot of questions, and a ton of concerns.

The truth will come out as it always does, and then Luke will have to decide if he loves Helena enough to forgive her and give her a second chance or if he really is meant to wander the open roads—alone—for the rest of his days.&#xa0;<br /><br /> Don’t worry, the Donovans aren’t going to stand by and watch this heartbreak happen without getting involved. After all, what’s family for, if not to get involved?&#xa0;<br /><br /> Stay tuned!&#xa0;<br /> <b></b><br /> <b>Reunion Gap series:</b><br /> Book 0: <i>Christmas in Reunion Gap: a holiday novelette</i>&#xa0;<br /> Book 1: <i>Strangers Like Us</i><br /> Book 2: <i>Liars Like Us</i><br /> Book 3: <i>Lovers Like Us</i><br /> Book 4: To be announced<br /><br /> <b>Bonus:</b> Included in this e-book is an excerpt from Mary’s <i>Pieces of You</i>.

A common theme: belief in the beauty of that second chance.<br /><br /> It's all about that second chance...<br /><br /> <b><i>PARADISE FOUND</i></b> Book Four&#xa0;<br /><br /> How does one see truly--with the heart or with the eyes?<br /> Matt Brandon has it all--wealth, power, looks, and talent. Women want him; men want to be like him. When a freak ski accident strips him of one of life's most basic needs--his sight--he struggles to accept the possibility that his blindness may be permanent.<br /> Enter psychologist Sara Hamilton, a woman who has known her own share of grief and loss and may just be the one person who can help Matt redefine his new world.

But most of what they unearth is about themselves--who they are, what they really want, what they really don't want. The center of controversy is a Maid-for-You mixer, which symbolizes a boring, routine suburban life with no second chances--then along comes insight in the form of Tula Rae, a sixty-something salsa-dancing, Dalai Lama-quoting, four-time widow in Spandex and a gray braid who gives them a different perspective on life, love, do-overs, and the real reason a man buys his woman a Maid-for-You mixer, which she says is all about S-E-X.<br /><br /> <b><i>THE BUTTERFLY GARDEN</i></b> Book Six<br /><br /> Sometimes love happens when you least expect it...<br /> Jenny Romano has never been a white-picket-fence, happily-ever-after girl.

Her older sister, Grace, has a husband, children, and a carpool schedule. She's the one their mother calls "perfect."<br /> But when tragedy strikes her sister's carefully constructed life, Jenny must step in and offer support. Soon, she finds herself in the sort of small-town suburban life she swore to avoid...<br /> Psychologist Elliot Drake spends so much time healing other people's pain and witnessing the backlash of caring too deeply that he prefers to keep his own relationships short and bittersweet. He's loved and lost once and with a young daughter to raise, he's not willing to risk his heart again. But he's never met anyone quite like Jenny. Outrageous and unpredictable, she's a force of nature--not at all like her well-controlled older sister.<br /> Taken by surprise and unsure of the next step, Elliot and Jenny are about to discover that real life happens whether you want it to or not. Will they let real love happen, too?

Description :  Heartache. Betrayal. Forgiveness. Redemption.<br /><br /> Real families aren’t always the ones you know about…. that’s the tagline for the first book in Mary Campisi’s bestselling Truth in Lies series, A Family Affair. But this book and the others in this series are about so much more than a secret family. Set in the small town of Magdalena, New York, the people have big hearts and good intentions…at least most of them do! Magdalena is a place of family, forgiveness, redemption, and second chances. And hope. Lots of hope. This town, and the people in it are about helping others get through the tough times and broken dreams, and doing it with the help of family, friends, sometimes even strangers.<br /><br /> A Family Affair<br /> When Christine Blacksworth’s larger-than-life father is killed on an icy road in Magdalena, New York, a hundred miles from the ‘getaway’ cabin he visited every month, she discovers a secret that threatens everything she’s always held to be true. Her father has another family which includes a mistress and a daughter. <br /> Determined to uncover the truth behind her father’s secret life, Christine heads to Magdalena, prepared to hate the people who have caused her to question everything she thought she knew about her father. But what she finds is a woman who understands her, a half-sister who cherishes her, and a man who could love her if she’ll let him.<br /> The longer she’s around them, the more she questions which family is the real one. . . <br /><br /> A Family Affair: Spring<br /> Harry Blacksworth is rich, handsome, the ultimate playboy with a killer smile and a clever wit. He’s fought it, denied it, ignored it, but the damn truth won’t go away: He’s fallen in love. And just when he’s accepted that fact, Greta Servensen, the only woman he’s ever trusted, breaks his heart. <br /> Christine Blacksworth and Nate Desantro beat the odds when they fell in love and married. But staying married is threatened when the foundation behind every good relationship—trust—is challenged. <br /> Angelo “Pop” Benito is The Godfather of Magdalena. Nothing happens in that town without his knowledge or approval. And Pop doesn’t do anything without a long sit-down with his dead wife, Lucy, and a half dozen pizzelles by his side. He’ll need a lot of lung power and a tray of his favorite treat to help Nate and Christine out of a real mess. And he may need the help of his checkers buddy and Magdalena’s shining star, Lily Desantro. <br /><br /> A Family Affair: Summer<br /> Eight years ago, tragedy struck the town’s perfect couple, Daniel “Cash” Casherdon and Tess Carrick, days before their wedding. That tragedy shredded their dreams of a life together and sent them fleeing Magdalena. Now, destiny has brought them back and the town is determined to see this couple mend their differences. <br /> Angelo “Pop” Benito will lead the crusade to march Cash and Tess down the aisle with the help of The Bleeding Hearts Society, a garden group more interested in healing people’s hearts than helping a sick basil plant. But they’re not the only ones cheering for this couple’s second chance. <br /> Who would have thought Nate Desantro would be giving advice on relationships, love, and marriage? But when a man finds the right woman, anything is possible. Add a baby to the mix; well, that’s pure “hero” material. Christine will offer her share of support and wisdom to Tess and stand up to an old troublemaker in the name of family and friendship. <br /><br /> Enjoy the journey as you catch up on the lives of the residents of Magdalena. They’re waiting for you!

44 Meals From Magdalena

Author : Mary Campisi
Genre :  Courses & Dishes  Books  Cookbooks, Food & Wine  Nonfiction  Family & Relationships  Regional & Ethnic 
Price :  $2.99
Release Date :  2017-10-25
Description :  Food has always been an important part of our family and our history, which is probably why it shows up so much in my writing. The characters in my <i>A Family Affair</i> books have cooked several of my family recipes and I thought it fitting to publish them as a cookbook from their hometown, Magdalena, NY. You'll also see a few recipes from the mother in <i>Simple Riches</i> (That Second Chance series), and yes, she may resemble my own mother with her wisdom as well as her culinary expertise. Of course, pastas are among the twelve recipes included, but there are also meat and vegetable dishes. And would any meal ever be complete without a selection from the breads and desserts.<br /><br /> • STELLA ANDROVICH’S PASTA &amp; BROCCOLI<br />• HARRY BLACKSWORTH’S PENNE PASTA WITH SPINACH<br />• RAMONA CASHERDON’S LASAGNA<br />• JEREMY ROSS DEAN’S AGLIO Y OLIO<br />• MIRIAM DESANTRO’S MEATBALLS<br />• STELLA ANDROVICH’S STUFFED CABBAGE<br />• STELLA ANDROVICH’S ZUCCHINI &amp; PEPPERS<br />• LUCINDA’S MINESTRONE<br />• GINA REED’S LENTIL SOUP<br />• MIRIAM DESANTRO’S BANANA BREAD<br />• POP BENITO’S VANILLA PIZZELLES<br />• RAMONA CASHERDON’S PUMPKIN-PECAN CAKE ROLL<br /><br /> My grandma never quite trusted dishes like lasagna, ravioli, or gnocchi. She liked her pasta without the extras of cheese and potato. I’m not sure what she would say about Harry Blacksworth’s Penne pasta with spinach and garbanzos. One of my very favorite dishes is Pasta and Broccoli, perhaps because it was the last dish my Aunt Marie made us, but I think it is also because it is representative of food we enjoyed as kids. (We ate calamari too; cleaned it, removed the insides, got all itchy from the inky water!)<br /><br /> My mother is the one who makes a great lasagna, ravioli, and pretty much every dish I’ve included in the cookbook. I have never seen anyone whip up a pumpkin roll like she can or make a pie crust as though it were second nature. <i>Practice</i>, she says. But she should know that practice means I will eat those pies...and not just one piece!<br /><br /> Mom is in so many of the “cooks” I write about in my stories; Stella Androvich, Miriam Desantro, Ramona Casherdon. And let me tell you, that Banana bread recipe is delicious! I do hope you enjoy these recipes and maybe they’ll make you think of your own family history of meals and the memories that accompanied them.<br /><br /> Mary
