SECOND CHANCE RANCH
The Trails’ End Ranch is For Sale.
Pediatric nurse, Jennifer O’Reilly returns home to Hawk Ridge, Colorado to establish a mountain recreation camp as a safe adventure for children battling cancer. Her path to ownership depends on developing a profitable business plan to convince the bank she can manage not only the camping facility, but the entire Trails’ End Ranch operation.
Generations earlier, one misplayed hand of poker lost the family ranch, and Zac Davidson, youngest son and financial genius of the Circle D, wants it back. Intrigued since childhood by the legend of his great grandfather, Zac is the only family member who holds out hope that one day the Trails’ End would become Davidson property again. When the Trails’ End goes on the market, cost is no object — only Jennifer O’Reilly stands between Zac and his dream.
Once high school sweethearts, Jennifer and Zac have wounded each other, and the scars run deep. Jennifer is forced to reveal a secret she’s protected for twelve years. Will it jeopardize the future of both of their dreams or offer them a second chance?
Definitely a read to lose yourself in. I loved the deep characterization and angsty plot -- both made for an emotional read. Harders has pit her hero and heroine against each other in a high stakes battle that threatens to irrevocably fracture their relationship forever. And it's already on shaky ground. Has been for twelve years. The way their story unfolds, how the past and present merge into a triumphant conclusion, made me want to stand up and cheer. A soul-satisfying tale about forgiveness and acceptance.
