Second Chance Bride - Guest Review

 Review by Kimberly Field

Second Chance Bride by Trish Morey is the second book in the Montana Born Bride Series. I am a sucker for bride books and this series is going to be one of my favorites.

Second Chance Bride had me intrigued me from the first page.  I could tell that it was not going to be your typical bride or jilted bride story and boy was I right! I loved that it opens in Australia, and could picture Mitch and hear that sexy Aussie accent. Scarlett just delighted me with the way she worked things out in her head.

Scarlett and Mitch meet under quite unusual circumstances and then go their separate ways after a not so great beginning only to run into each other again on the street after Mitch helps save her from a drunk. Scarlett offers to buy Mitch coffee (really that is all she can afford.) Scarlett is in Australia, because she wanted to surprise her cyber boyfriend only to be surprised herself. She had only bought a one way ticket and needs to get home to Marietta Montana to help take care of her ill mom and give her sister a break. Scarlett had been trying to find work so that she can get the air fare. Mitch feels like he needs to help her because she reminds him of his sister (he wishes someone would have helped her) and offers her a business proposition. Scarlett would pretend to be his girlfriend at a wedding where he is the best man and in exchange all expenses would be paid and he would buy her plane ticket home. Mitch had been dreading going to the wedding because the groom is marrying his ex-girlfriend and at least with Scarlett there it will much more enjoyable.  Of course neither of them had counted on their undeniable spark flying chemistry as they get to know each other during all the festivities.

I loved this story; it was fast paced, filled with charming characters, sexy, sweet and everything you want in a great romance story. I also enjoyed getting to know about parts of Australia that I had never heard of and I liked the comparisons to Montana and the story does end in the lovely Marietta. I wish this was real town I could move to. This was the first book I have read from Trish Morey and it won’t be the last.  I highly recommend it!
