It's never too late for a second chance at love.
Maria Wylder is used to taking care of herself, the ranch, her five grown boys—and even coordinating what will surely be an awkward family Christmas that will include her ex-husband and his new wife.
What she’s not used to is catching the eye of the local mechanic Clint Walker whose gaze lights up every time he sees her.
Or the way he listens to her every word and brings her little gifts to brighten her day.
When they both end up visiting the beach town of Indigo Bay to help with a Christmas fundraiser, will it become a chance for them to step outside their tired old roles and discover something new—together? And what will Maria do when Clint slowly begins to win her heart despite her best intentions not to fall in love again?
This second chance, seasoned romance is part of the Indigo Bay Christmas Romance series and can be read as a standalone. It is also connected to Jean’s series called The Cowboys of Sweetheart Creek, Texas.

Sweet, heartwarming, small town, second chance romance
Sweet Joymaker is a sweet, heartwarming, small town, second chance romance. I love how hard Clint worked to make Maria see she was worth loving. I love Ms. Oran’s books. She has the best characters, great towns and unique plots. This book kept me reading well into the night because I could not put it down. Sure, I knew they would get their HEA, but I wanted to see how that was accomplished.
Loved this story
Fifty-some year old mom––her mindset still on being wife, mom, housekeeper, cook, adviser, and problem-solver––runs off to avoid an issue she'd rather not deal with and comes face to face with another.
Clint had been pining for her for years. He follows her to Indigo Bay and proceeds to show her what she means to him. (He's a keeper!)
