My review: Second Chance Hero by Winnie Griggs (Texas Grooms #6)
I like this series. Second Chance Hero is a well told story that draws you right into it. This is the sixth book in the Texas Grooms series. I really liked Nate and Joy's characters especially.
Nate Cooper is new to Turnabout Texas. He has a past he is ashamed of. Nate has opened his own store making saddles, bridles and other leather goods. He has a dog named beans. He would be more honest about his past but does not want others to figure out that his where he met his friend.
Verity Leggett is a widow raising Joy a cute little girl. Verity makes hats and helps her Uncle out. Verity is such a mix of capable assistant to her Uncle, mother or in the choir but then in other ways she is afraid to take risks.
Joy is cute. She loves animals and carries her doll every where with her. She is five years old.
Nate gets hurt saving Joy from being run over by a wagon. He does not want to stay at the Doctor's clinic over night. He keeps telling Verity that he is no hero.
The setting is Turnabout, Texas April 1897
There is plenty of drama, interesting characters, lots of relationships and a clean read. It makes you want to come and read some more about Turnabout and see what they are up to now.
I was given this ebook to read by Net Galley and Harlequin. In return I agreed to give a honest review of Second Chance Hero.
