Elaine
With adorably twins, their widowed Mum and the Fortune family, this story is packed with great characters, lots of love and a heartwarming romance.

Callum Fortune and his two brothers are helping rejuvenate the small town of Rambling Rose in Texas. One of their projects is a paediatric hospital and it is at the opening of this that Callum first spots Becky Averill and her twin daughters. There's instant attraction between them but he's certain he's not a man for commitment after his first

YAWN.... DNF

It's obvious this book is part of a series as the author spends chapters going on and on about the history of the family. While some of it was relevant, some I don't think was. It almost felt like the author was trying to push the other books rather than telling this story.

I found Callum to be incredibly immature for not only someone his age but for someone has successful as he was. The love struck puppy dog act didn't fit with his character.

I found both Callum and Becky to enjoy

Heartwarming!!

A truly great heartwarming story! Michelle Major is always able to bring out the smiles and the heart melting emotions. I instantly fell in love with these characters and I absolutely became invested.

I devoured this story. I couldn’t get enough. I truly enjoyed my escape into Rambling Rose. I am such a fan of Michelle Major’s writing. Her books feel like home. I am anxiously waiting for her next book!

Michelle Major begins a new Fortune family saga with a sweet, heartwarming story of a perfect couple.

Becky Avrill and her husband Rick decided Rambling Rose, Texas was the perfect place to set down roots and raise a family. They were both thrilled when the home pregnancy test showed positive. Becky's joy was shortly to be destroyed when Rick died in an accident early on in her pregnancy. It's two years later and Becky and her sixteen-month-old twins, Luna and Sasha, are doing just fine. Becky, a

A Wonderful start to a new series in the Fortunes of Texas series!

This is where he meets widow/nurse Becky Averill and her two adorable twin girls. Instant attraction on both of their parts. When an emergency happens as soon as the doors open, Callum offers to watch the girls. And that begins the journey for them. Both of them ha baggage, ...more

Another branch of the beloved Fortune family has stolen my heart! The kick-off to a new Fortunes of Texas series is always exciting, and Michelle Major brought her A game with FORTUNE'S FRESH START, the start of the Rambling Rose sub-series! I'm super excited to get more of Callum's sibling's stories in the future books.

Callum catches a reader's eye immediately with his self-assured way and when we see him jump to the aid of a single mother, we start to melt from the start. Watching him interact

I enjoyed this heartwarming contemporary romance. I enjoyed getting to know the characters and seeing that connection. Callum isnt interested in sticking around in town once he's done with his currently project and after his last relationship getting involved with Becky isn't the best idea, at least that's what he thinks. Even after that its hard to stay away and its so cute seeing how Callum, Becky and the twin were. This is a fast paced contemporary romance and if you are looking for a sweet ...more

As a huge fan of Michelle Major's books, I was excited to read another this winter break and it certainly did not disappoint! I love her "second chance romance" perspective, which draws you into the characters as they search in their hearts for love again. Becky and Callum are both enjoyable, realistic portrayals of people that I would love to meet in real life, and I cheered for both of them in the book! Wished I lived in Rambling Rose, Texas myself to get to know the wonderful people in Ms. ...more
