“Second Chance At The Ranch” Review

Hello Friends!

Like I said before, I’m going to try and post more reviews, and today I bring you a new review.

Second Chance At The Ranch“, written by Maxine Morrey, a contemporary romance, published on September 27th 2018 by HQ Digital.

I received a complimentary copy of this book thanks to Maxine Morrey via NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.


second-chance-at-the-ranchIt’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?

About The Author

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, aswell 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.

My Review

This was the first every book I have read of Maxine Morrey and I quite enjoyed it.

Following Hero, this novel brings us to a storyline full of emotion. Not only did it have romance, it have family relationship (in this case, Hero and her sister Juliet), and since family means a lot to me, I was quite emotional about the characters’ interactions. I felt as their relationship was such an important pillar in the novel.

Speaking of the characters, I felt very invested in the characters because of how realistic they sounded, plus, once we get to meet them more and as we uncover their past and their ideal, it’s hard not to feel for them, especially Hero.

I won’t enter in any specific aspects about the plot or how the story will turn out, but I recommend the book. It had a good pace, it bring us images of Australia (a place I would love to visit) and it had drama, romance and engaging characters and scenes that made me visualize, feel as I was part of the group and was transported to that moment.

Overall, I enjoyed, and loved how it entertained me until the very end and how I hope I could read more about every character and their future.
