A second chance at love on Big Heart Ranch

My Thoughts:

It was a nice trip to get to go back and visit Big Heart Ranch and this time to spend it with the youngest Maxwell sibling, Emma. Emma is a widow and a mom of two year old twin girls. Zach, her brother-in-law and ex-Navy Seal, has come back for just a stopping point before he moves on to his next adventure. Zach, Zach, Zach is definitely our strong, silent, and brooding hero who tries to keep his heart encased in the ice barrier surrounding it. Emma, feisty and bossy with a lot of Christmas cheer tries to break into that barrier, not knowing her heart is on the line as well.

I liked going back to the ranch around the holiday season meeting up with old friends and greeting new and watching Zach and Emma dance around the very real issues that were keeping them apart. I thought this was a well told love story of second chances, letting go of the past, living in the present, and embracing the future with God’s blessings.

I received a complimentary copy of this novel. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.
