Second Glances
by Rosalind Byers

New beginnings are on the horizon for Allie Harper, a high school teacher in her early 30s, when she moves to Calgary, Alberta, for a teaching position. Before she even lands in Calgary, on the plane ride she meets the handsome stranger, Mark Darcy. A spontaneous coffee date at the airport turns into a romantic dinner on the Sheraton terrace where they can’t keep their eyes off each other.

Surprised by their instant chemistry, Allie and Mark go on a series of romantic dates where their lives quickly intertwine. As Allie shares her passion for teaching, Mark shares that he works for the massive company, Sloane Industries, but his position there remains a mystery to Allie.

Right before Sloane Industries hosts a fundraiser for Allie’s school, she unexpectedly discovers more about Mark—he lied about his last name. Although he had his reasons for keeping this secret, her heart is broken by what could have been. In the end, Allie wonders if she can ever forgive Mark and reignite what they once had.
