Second Chance Season (Grand Valley #2) by Liora Blake

Return to Liora Blake’s Grand Valley series with Second Chance Season, in which an avowed country boy with a family duty meets an ambitious city girl with even bigger goals and who shows him just what he’s been missing.

Garrett Strickland is unapologetically country, fiercely loyal, and perfectly happy with his job at the Hotchkiss Co-op. Garrett is all about living in the present and not dwelling in the past—even if he was once on his way to a lofty agricultural sciences degree that would guarantee the brightest of futures, only to end up back home when his old man died, leaving behind a debt-ridden family farm that was impossible to keep afloat. After that, it was easy to see why dreaming big wasn’t worth the heartache. And until he crosses paths with a city girl who’s hell-bent on kick-starting her own future, he’s sure that good enough is just that.

Cara Cavanaugh is ready for more from life, even if that means changing everything; including dumping her boyfriend of ten years, turning down a lucrative job at a major newspaper, and leaving behind the upscale suburbs of Chicago where she grew up. Now, she just has to pray that temporarily relocating to the middle of nowhere in Colorado will be the first step in building a career as a freelance journalist—all she has to do is prove she’s got what it takes to make a name for herself. Unfortunately, her tony country day school is as close to “country” as she’s ever been. But when a goodhearted guy who looks like he just stumbled out of a country music video offers to help, she ends up falling hard…and discovering that the perfect story is a love story. And it’s theirs.

Second Chance Season, book two in the Grand Valley series, is a charming, feel-good romance, perfect for fans of Jennifer Probst and Kristan Higgins.

I loved, loved, this book! Garret and Cara are two characters that have a lot of chemistry since the beginning and I never wanted their story to end. Second Chance Season will make you swoon and laugh and make me want to live the farm-life.  If you were fans of Cooper and Whitney from First Step Forward, then you'll be sure to love this new couple.

Garrett Stickland is all country. He grew up country and proud of it. His life, friends, family and work are all in Grand Valley. Garrett once had a promising education and career, but he ended back home after his father passed to take care of the farm. But that fell through and his family farm had to be sold when it couldn't be financially saved. Garrett seemed content on just working and not leaving Grand Valley. But when a beautiful city girl gets lost and Garrett "saves" her, his life changes.

Cara Cavanaugh is a journalist, taking on the her next assignment in the small town of Grand Valley. Her job is to write about rural America and then move on. But what she never expected to fall for the small town community and the one man who she can't stop thinking about, Garrett Strickland.  So why not have a little fun with the hot county boy, and while she's here. She won't let her heart get involved, right?

Second Chance Season a sweet and endearing read with low angst and shows how two strangers can find love when you're not even looking. And can Braden please get a book next? I'm wanting this grumpy and brooding man's story!
