Good second chance story. Mack is content with life as it is, taking care of his ranch and his twelve year old daughter. Zoey, however, isn't as happy. She's getting to the age where she'd really like to have a mom, but her dad isn't cooperating. So, without his knowledge, she enters him in a magazine contest, hoping that he'll win and get introduced to a potential mom for her.

JJ is a photojournalist for the magazine and is the one assigned to do the story about him. She's not happy about it bec

This is only the second book by this author that I've read - I enjoyed it just as much as 'The Secret Wedding Dress'. Engaging characters, a sweet kid, misunderstandings but not too much angst, and a renewed romance. Very entertaining.
