When she hears her name, it’s almost not even a surprise. Good fortune took its sweet time showing up in her life, but better late than never. For Nean the house promises an escape from the latest in her revolving door of crappy jobs and drunk boyfriends, from being the kind of person other people look at but don’t see.Both Janine Browns head for their new hometown of Christmas Cove, Maine to claim the prize, and when their lives intersect, they discover that more than just a million-dollar dream home awaits them at water’s edge.
