    A promising debut

    Filled with tropes (small-town/return to hometown/second-chance/fling), a touch of mystery, a dash of intrigue, vivid imagery, and fascinating characters, Her Second Chance Cowboy is a highly polished debut by Makenna Lee. Reese and James have such intense chemistry from page one, their decision to have a summer fling is inevitable. Of course, the real story is how they turn that temporary arrangement into a long-term commitment. Along the way, they have to deal with past hurts, lack of trust, miscommunication, incompatible dreams, and external forces that seek to separate them. Good thing, there’s also a fun treasure hunt that helps strengthen their bond. Overall, this is a light read with some sweet steam. Being the first book of a series, Her Second Chance Cowboy suffers a little from multiple subplots and the introduction of numerous characters who could have their own stories someday. These made the book longer than it has to be and may have taken the focus away from Reese and James at various parts of the book. Aside from these, this promises to be a series worth following.

    This was a sweet romance with a bit of a mystery

    James and Reese take a chance on a casual fling, with her career opportunities and his determination to never get married both standing in the way of any lasting relationship. What makes this story unique is that it's not just their undeniable chemistry or their family connections that seem to work toward bringing them together. There's a bit of folklore surrounding the land that encompasses both families, giving destiny an unexpected hand in writing their names in the stars. As much as I loved watching these two fall in love, the second half of the book felt a little weak to me. I was hoping for a stronger connection that would bring these two to their HEA, and while they do overcome the obstacles in the end, their separation felt needless and a little too long, and I just couldn't feel the intensity of their love. The story flows really smoothly and the characters are vibrant and memorable, and I really enjoyed the way they shared their favorite romance novel together. I'm looking forward to reading more in this series. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

    Get swept away with this second chance romance

    I was swept away with this second chance romance. Reese has returned to Cypress Creek to complete a submission for National Geographic and to buy her grandparents cottage. She has many memories wrapped up in their cottage but the last person she expected to find on the roof is James, the boy who broke her heart in high school. James lives to take care of the land and ranch. He avoids relationships after experiencing his father’s downfall after his mother died in childbirth. He doesn’t want to experience that kind of pain. Having Reese walk back into his life is unexpected and wonderful. He knows he screwed up as a teenager and wants to make it up to her. There is so much beauty in the rebuilding of their relationship and trust. They stumble onto a family mystery that has them following clues which enhances the connection they share. At the same time, there is the added pressure from an outside developer that wants to buy land in Cypress Creek to turn into a resort. There are several challenges as Reese pursues her dream to be a photojournalist who travels the world with James’ issues with love and relationships. I experienced all the emotions with this couple and found myself wanting to live in Cypress Creek.

    Fantastic Book!

    This was such a heart-warming story and was easy to read. It was full of emotions, second-chance romance, and a mysterious treasure hunt. Reese Turner was a freelance photographer and was hoping to get a position with the National Geographic. She returns to Cypress Creek to try and buy back her grandmother’s cottage. She was taking pictures of the area for one of her previous employers, Mr. Everett when she encounters James, the boy who broke her heart. She plans on spending some time in Cypress Creek while waiting to hear back from National Geographic. She realizes that Mr. Everett is wanting to build a resort in Cypress Creek, but she couldn’t allow that to happen to her grandmother’s cottage. James MacLachlan was happy in Cypress Creek. After watching his father become a stranger when his mother died in childbirth, James won’t risk having long term relationships or having children. His emotions for Reese scares him, but he hopes that having a summer fling with her will cure him. They find a letter that sends them on a treasure hunt solving the clues left by his ancestor. As he slowly starts to question his future, Reese hears back from National Geographic leaving James few options. This was truly a wonderful book to read and I fell in love with the small town and its people. I look forward to reading future books from this author.

    New (to me) Author

    I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This was the first time I read anything from this author. I enjoyed most of the story line but there seemed to be too much “stuff” unnecessarily crammed into the pages. There were so many twists and turns and side plots that never really developed and so much angst that could’ve been avoided by just some honest communication.
