Lori Dayton left her hometown four years
ago to pursue her dreams. Not only did she leave behind her
family, but she left behind Dean Wilcox, the cowboy of her
dreams. Home for the first time since leaving, Lori is
disconcerted to see Dean at the bar where she and her brothers
are having drinks and playing pool. And, if the looks he is
giving her are any indication, Dean doesn’t plan of forgiving
her anytime soon.
Dean Wilcox has never gotten over Lori’s
leaving him for the bright lights of the city. He has had
four years to get over her but he still wants her with as much
passion as he did so long ago. No matter that she fled, what
matters is that she is back. And back in his arms is where
she is going to stay.
Can these two lovers forgive each other
and have a second chance at love?
Could Mackenzie McKade grab my
heartstrings any tighter than what she did with Second
Chance Christmas? I don’t think so. I still haven’t
recovered from the emotional ride that this novel took me on.
Dean had valid reasons for being upset with Lori. And Lori,
while mostly innocent, needed to accept some of the blame for
his animosity. I found her character completely realistic and
while she wanted to be with Dean forever, she wanted to be
with him because he wanted her to be. Not because she was an
Second Chance Christmas was
a great holiday story – one that I will reread in the future.
With each and every book Ms. McKade’s writing takes me on a
great journey – one that I have no intentions of ever
returning from. Her books are fabulous.
