A very enjoyable, captivating, dreamy read! One of those books that you just can't put down because you need to know what will happen next. I loved all the different settings, and especially enjoyed hearing about Jenna's travels to different countries.

Jenna's father gets married and this is where she meets Daniel Martin, a visitor from England attending the wedding. Sparks fly and she can't seem to get him out of her mind. Luckily enough, Jenna's father gives her a loaded credit card as a gift for working on the family ranch in Idaho without pay for many years; and Jenna decides to travel. She goes to England, where she spends time with Daniel again and is left feeling uncertain if he "is the one" or not.

I found Jenna to be somewhat spoiled (maybe I was jealous of her getting the credit card from her father!) and a little whiny and immature. Perhaps this is how the author wanted her to come across to the reader? Nonetheless, I still loved the story and had the book finished within a day because I had such difficulty putting it down.

Now I am on a mission to find more books by this mother/daughter duo author, Penny Appleton. I can't wait to read more about the extended family members!

Thank you so much to Goodreads and the author for sending me a lovely personalized note with the book. I am very excited to read more of your books! Keep up the good work, and keep on writing!

This is the second book in this series, with a third planned to be released in the near future. This one looks at Jenna and her travels around the world and Dan whom she meets at her fathers wedding. They live countries apart but can they find a way to be together.
Penny writes a beautiful love story which is full of ups and downs and life. She writes in such a charming way that you are almost sad to reach the end of her stories.

Sweet travel adventure

After reading Love, Second Time Around, I definitely wanted to know more of Jenna's story! This was sweet and clean and took me to Idaho, England, Japan, and Australia! This is my kind of travel! I'd rate it PG.

This was just an average romance. It never really captured my interest, but my sister enjoyed it. I felt that the lead male character's personality was not brought out sufficiently well for me to care about him. I did enjoy the descriptions of the countries visited by the heroine.

I was crying at the end, and I wished Blue was mine--despite being afraid up horses up close. But I could definitely feel the love and connection.

Again wonderful

Really enjoyed the second book in this series from this author. Finished this one in one day. Love the way she writes and keeps the reader on the edge of their seat.

It was a perfectly pleasant well-written read, but it didn't really stand out. I did like some of the cultural details that came out during the heroine's travels.
