Second Chance Christmas by Pamela Tracy
The Rancher's Daughters Series Book Two
Elise Hubrecht had, in a way, run away from home after high school. After a tragedy, she blamed herself and felt that staying out of Apache Creek was the best cure. Leaving her family and friends behind. Including the man she loved and was going to marry. And now, ten years later, it's time to come home.
Cooper Smith felt burdened after returning home when his father fell ill and then passed away. He had a store to run, a mother who was still grieving deeply, and a younger brother who decided to start misbehaving. Even in his busy life, he still felt lonely. Especially since the cause of that loneliness just came back to town.
Another fantastic series by this author. In book one, Finally a Hero, her older sister finds happiness at home while Elise and the youngest sister, Emily, are still away. Now that Elise has returned, maybe she can put the past behind her and start living again. Looking forward to the next book.
