Isabel Antunes is content with her life as director of the British Academy in Lisbon. Then she’s hit by a man on a bike—a man her boss just hired to be her assistant. Despite Simon Ackerley’s repeated assurances to the contrary, Isabel believes he’s after her position, but she won’t hand it over without a fight. As if dealing with him all week is not enough, he shows up at church as well. Her only solace is in writing to the pen pal she knows as “Elliot”.
Simon Ackerley told his father that he was moving to Lisbon for the job. But that isn’t the only reason. Simon is looking for Amélie, the pen pal he’s written for fifteen years. A woman he knows everything about—except her real name and address.
When the biking accident reveals that Simon’s prickly co-worker Isabel is the elusive Amélie, he knows he has to win her trust before he can confess his true identity. If only he could tell her the actual reason why he’s come, he’s sure Isabel would treat him differently. But she’s not ready for the truth.


One Small Chance is a standalone novella set in Lisbon. It’s a clean and wholesome contemporary LDS romance in the A Love Story From Portugal series.

The rundown: two pen pals grow up and happen to end up in the same city, except only one of them knows who the other is. I remember when pen pals were a thing - kids these days have no idea what it was like when the only person that you stalked was the postman.

It was a very heartwarming story, and full lot of emotion, but I can’t help but feel that after all that buildup, it just ended without us seeing their relationship progress. It did deal with religion, but it wasn’t in your face or forceful. I kind of feel like this drew on other similar plots of books and movies, and didn’t have anything original besides its location, but I must say that I’m going to google all of those mouthwatering recipes!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Connected with characters and loved the setting! 1 September 2016
By Heidi Reads... - Published on Amazon.com

I loved this sweet story with a "You've Got Mail" theme. The characters are well-fleshed out and the story and plot has a full arc. It didn't feel too short like novellas often do and when I finished the last page I just had to sigh in satisfaction. The setting of Portugal played a huge part in making the story stand out. It was so fun to imagine the foreign location and accents and the vivid descriptions were subtle without taking over the narrative. I was able to connect with both Isabel and Simon and felt the emotions they were experiencing as they grew closer together in spite of the struggles they face. Highly recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this sweet romance 6 April 2017
By Julie P. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I got pulled into this story from the beginning, and kept turning pages until the end. I loved Simon, and Isabel grew on me. I've never read a book set in Portugal, so that was interesting, too. Recommended for LDS readers, especially.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, from the beauty of Lisbon to the well developed characters. Isabel is a strong and worthy heroine and I really liked Simon, the hero. This is a sweet and clean romance novella that reads like a novel.

By Laura Bastain - Published on Amazon.com

Read an early copy and loved it. The story is sweet and easy to believe, the characters are interesting and well developed for a short novel. I loved reading about Portugal through the setting and getting a little flavor for the area. Simon is just perfect and totally sigh worthy. And I think I might have to take up his habit of wearing fun socks. Loved that little bit. Isabel is darling and a go getter and the food talked about was making me wish I could actually pull the food from the book it sounded so delish. Totally recommend this book.
