ABOUT THIS BOOK
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?
Emotional, engaging, and heartwarming, SECOND CHANCE AT THE RANCH by Maxine Morrey is a wonderful contemporary story of love finding you when you need it most.
Juliet and Hero are more than just sisters, they are the only family that they have so when Juliet finds the love of her life in the Australian Outback, Hero is delighted for her caring and compassionate sister but she understands that their relationship will change. But it's fine because Hero can throw herself even more into her successful modelling career where she wears a mask of cool control and detachment. However underneath it all, Hero is still that little girl that yearned for her parent's love which they were unwilling to give. As Hero gets to know Juliet's new extended family she cannot help but fall under their spell a little, especially around Nick, but Hero knows that opening up leads to heartbreak so she runs away. But when tragedy strikes, Hero's life will turn upside down and inside out but maybe she will find the path she was destined to follow and open herself up to love.
I really enjoyed this book and while at times Hero annoyed me because she was so determined to remain alone, as we learn about her childhood I could understand her reasons. The setting is tranquil and inviting, and the home and lifestyle of Juliet and Pete were really appealing. There is drama, secrets, sadness, and hope and I thoroughly recommend SECOND CHANCE AT THE RANCH by Maxine Morrey to all contemporary fiction fans.
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. Coming in first, she won a handful of book tokens – perfect for a bookworm!
As years 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 book on Brighton for a Local History publisher. However, novels are what she loves writing the most. After self publishing her first novel when a contract fell through, thanks to the recession, she continued to look for opportunities.
In August 2015, she won Harper Collins/Carina UK’s ‘Write Christmas’ competition with her 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. As she also likes cake she can also be found either walking or doing something vaguely physical at the gym.
