    OK….so first chance, #1, I would love a second chance….and I’d love the book.

    #2 I’d love to live in Nashville, but currently I live in PA. I have a lot of friends in Nashville, so a move would just make sense, but the funds aren’t there right now.

    If money was no issue I’d live on my own island.

    Thanks for this great book giveaway. I enjoyed your review which was wonderful.
    I live in N.M. and I would love to live in a small, charming town in Italy.

  4. Well, I live in Northwestern CT and I LOVE it there. so I’m not too interested in a second chance that involves a move.

    I’m delighted to see this give-away. I think it’s a brilliant idea — But then, I wrote the book.

    I’m mostly interested in the fact that Munchie the Cat is making the choices. So – maybe, if you really want to win the book, all of your New Home locations should be near a fishery or a tuna canning facility…

    Thanks everyone for making my morning back to work so full of good cheer!

    Second chances are my motto in general. As a mom and also owner of a home from the 1930’s, I’m getting more experience breathing new life into old. It would be hard to move, leaving behind a group of friends and stepping into a new life with all its surrounding questions without support. I guess the chance to create a new circle and grow is far from spontaneous for me. I’d have to think a long while to come up with this plan and decide whether to jump in completely.

    In the suburbs near Cleveland, Ohio is where I’ve lived all my life. If money was no object, I’d still live here because of the people. My town has a motto: A community is known by the schools it keeps.

    I currently live in Washington State, but if money were no object I would live in Holland.

    #1 I think I’ve had several “second chances” myself but this rebuilding of the house as a metaphor for rebuilding her outlook on life sounds like something I would like to read through.

    #2 If money AND TIME were no object . . .I would live all over old europe. Beginning in Paris . . .
    (C’mon Munchie!)
