Second Chances
Kristie Leigh Maguire

Jane Porter’s dreams of marrying Mike Farley, the handsome cowboy who lives on the neighboring ranch, are shattered when Mike suddenly marries a redheaded stranger he met at the Wild Horse Saloon in Casper , Wyoming . After Mike stomped all over Jane’s heart with his cowboy boots, can Jane ever trust her heart to a man again?
Mike Farley marries beautiful Samantha Jo Smith after a whirlwind courtship with no thought to Jane Porter, his childhood sweetheart and the woman everyone in Fremont County thought he would marry one day. Mike soon learns to regret his hasty marriage to Samantha. Can Mike win back Jane’s heart even though he had shattered it into a million pieces?
Longtime friends and neighbors Jim Porter and Liz Farley turn to each other for support, and help in raising their children Jane and Mike, after the unexpected death of their spouses. Will Jim and Liz’s friendship turn into something deeper even though they both feel they have had, and lost, their chance at love?
Is it ever too late for love? Is it ever too late for second chances?
Set in rural Wyoming , Second Chances is a delightful read that will warm your heart. One reader stated, “I read it through in an evening, and felt as if I had spent that evening with ‘salt of the earth’ folk.”

Most of the characters in this book were really flawed, and I have to tell you that half way through the read I couldn't imagine how this would work out. But this is one skilled author and this was a really satisfying book. She really explores the characters motivations and leads everyone on quite a journey! I particularly enjoyed the character of Sammy Jo, it would have been so easy to turn her into a paper cut villain but I felt sympathetic towards her, which made the relationship between Mike and Jane all the more interesting. I can't wait to read more books by this talented author.
