It’s never too late to find love…
When Juliet Scott falls for ruggedly handsome Pete while away travelling, she never imagines how different her life will be to that of her sister, successful and beautiful model Hero. Based on a cattle station in the vast Australian Outback, Juliet’s life is now simple, down-to earth and honest, and the perfect antidote to the chaotic celebrity lifestyle that Hero leads in the UK.
With her striking brunette hair, perfect posture, and mesmerising green eyes, it is no wonder Hero has come so far in such a superficial industry. But when tragedy strikes, Hero finds herself in the arms of her sister, recuperating from a terrible accident on the other side of the world.
With her modelling career in tatters, and her scars more than just skin deep, Juliet worries that Hero will hide behind the mask she wears forever. But does Australia have something, or someone, to offer that London never could?
What I Thought:
Perhaps I’m mellowing as I get older, but I find myself reading more and more romance novels – purely because, although the path of the characters is not smooth, you can be assured that nice things will happen to them by the end.
This by no means is meant to say that Second Chance at the Ranch is predictable – the journey to the happy ending has its share of heartbreak and tragedy, and the characters themselves are appealing and worth rooting for.
Hero is beautiful, successful and it would be very easy to hate her, and yet she is a complex character with hidden scars and a deep-seated fear of rejection which, at some points can make you want to shake her as she can’t see what is in front of her. Luckily for her (and us!), there’s a rugged Australian farmer waiting to show her that she is loved and wanted.
This is the first one of Maxine Morrey’s novels that I’ve read and it certainly won’t be the last if they are all of this standard. It’s a compelling story, peppered with likeable characters and definitely leaves you with a warm feeling – let’s face it, we could all use that right about now!
