Second Chance Ranch by Liz Isaacson ♥ Review & GIVEAWAY ♥ (Inspirational Romance)

After his deployment, injured and discharged Major Squire Ackerman returns to Three Rivers Ranch, anxious to prove himself capable of running the cattle operation so his parents can retire. Things would be easier if the ranch wasn’t missing 1.6 million dollars, which forces Squire to hire Kelly, the girl who rejected his high school prom invitation, as his accountant.

She’s back in town with her four-year-old son, living in her parent’s basement until she can get her life back together. With fresh ink on her divorce papers and open gashes on her heart, she’s not ready for much beyond her new job on the ranch.

Squire wants to forgive Kelly for ignoring him a decade ago. He’d like to provide the stable life she needs, but with old wounds opening and a ranch on the brink of financial collapse, it will take patience and faith to make their second chance possible.

For fans of inspirational western romance authors Kimberly Krey, Becky Wade, and Denise Hunter.

A wonderful romance that was inspirational in more ways than one!

First of all, the synopsis does an excellent job of setting up the tension in this story from the very beginning: A man scorned by the woman of his dreams years ago, and now she is back in his life, all day, every day. I was GLUED to this book waiting to see how the inevitable confrontation surrounding that event would play out!

I liked reading Squire because he was realistically damaged. A war veteran with PTSD and a broken heart, he needed someone special to love and understand him. He needed that person to be Kelly.

Kelly was also damaged and had some trust issues as a result of a past betrayal. Needless to say, these issues made for some intense conflicts with Squire.

The book talks about God and faith, but it wasn't over-the-top or too "in your face." Rather, those elements were inserted into the story as they might come up in every-day, real life by way of going to church, etc.

Kelly and Squire must work together to find the 1.6 million dollars that went missing form Three Rivers Ranch. Ultimately they do solve the mystery, but the way it ended was VERY unexpected! I enjoyed that twist in the story.

All in all, this was a very good, sweet romance novel, and I think this will turn into a wonderful series!
