Happy Monday and happy Martin Luther King day!
Thrilled to share my review for this book all about second chances and reinventing yourself! Big thanks to Rachel for my invitation to the tour, and to Maxine Morrey for her delightful story!💛
Second Chance At The Ranch
It’s never too late for a second chance at love in this uplifting and warm-hearted romance.
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?
A sweet Romance about life’s second chances and reinventing yourself!
An engaging love story set in rural Australia… A book full of heart, hope, family, and lots and lots of angst… I can be a bit of a drama queen myself so I do love some good old fashion drama in my books!
Juliet and Hero are sisters and have always been close… however, Juliet is now living in Australia after falling in love with Pete… meanwhile hero is busy being a famous supermodel in the UK…. when tragedy strikes Hero finds herself heading to stay with her sister in Australia to heal her scars, inside and out… never did she ever think she would be drawn to such an isolated area or fall in love… but can Hero’s frozen heart be thawed?
I really liked Juliet and her romance with Pete was very very sweet! Hero on the other hand took a while for me to warm up to… she was very cold and distant and it was hard to believe she was the sister of Juliet…. but as different as the sisters were, they were really there for one another and the bond between them appeared to be unbreakable…. Hero and Nick’s love story was very… will they won’t they? Boy oh boy did both of these characters have some major issues and baggage…. a Romance filled with drama and frustration…
A wonderfully told romance filled with engaging characters and a beautiful setting! Recommend!
🎵 Music running through my mind, this song was running through my mind for obvious reasons! Hero is a great name, but I think if that was my name I’d feel a lot of responsibility to live up to its meaning!
… Where have all the good men gone
And where are all the gods?
Where’s the streetwise Hercules to fight the rising odds?
Isn’t there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
Late at night I toss and I turn
And I dream of what I need
… I need a hero
– Bonnie Tyler 1984

Maxine has wanted to be a writer for as long as she can remember and wrote her first (very short) book for school when she was ten.
As time went by, she continued to write, but ‘normal’ work often got in the way. She has written articles on a variety of subjects, as well as a local history book on Brighton. However, novels are her first love.
In August 2015, she won Harper Collins/Carina UK’s ‘Write Christmas’ competition with her first romantic comedy, ‘Winter’s Fairytale’.
Maxine lives on the south coast of England, and when not wrangling with words loves to read, sew and listen to podcasts. Being a fan of tea and cake, she can (should!) also be found doing something vaguely physical at the gym.
