Second Chance Ranch by Liz Isaacson book review

A new Christian western romance from bestselling author, Elana Johnson, writing as Liz Isaacson for her contemporary adult romance debut.

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.


My thoughts:


Squire comes home after getting hurt overseas.  He wants to help run the ranch so his parents can retire but they need a new accountant to help as their old one passed away.  Kelly is an old family friend and Squire’s sister best friend.  She applies for the job and gets it but is not prepared for what is involved.

The author does a great job with this story.  I was hooked from the beginning as I wanted to know who took the money was it really the old accountant or maybe even Squire’s parents.  He use to have a crush on Kelly and even invited her to the prom but she shot him down or did she?

The setting and the characters are great.  Each one has their problems and with the help from the other they can over come a lot of obstacles.

I will be looking for more books by this author.
