The Littlest Cowgirls continues The Mountain Monroe series with a story full of emotions – and not all of them are the lovey-dovey kind, at least in the beginning.  Wyatt will finally come face to face with reality in the form of one very pregnant Monroe twin… and certainly not the twin he’d thought he’d spent one unexpected night with.  Ashley is determined to make sure that her twin, Laurel gets exactly what she wants, and what Laurel wants is to not have Wyatt as her twin daughters father on the birth certificate, in fact, what she really wants is for that night to never have happened but since she’s bearing the results of that night then the least Wyatt could do is sign away his parental rights to the girls – after all, he certainly never wanted to settle down with kids anyway!

Throughout the series, we’ve watched Laurel find happiness with Mitch, and for Ashley to begin the growing process of not being what is expected of her but to find her own journey – even if that moves her away from the safe niche she’s had in Hollywood.  Now Ashley is about to come fully into her own as she tackles roles far beyond what she’s ever done before, yet knows with a heartfelt certainty that it is the right path for her right now.  Of course, that doesn’t mean there won’t be speed bumps along this new road she’s traveling – and one of those just happens to be the attraction she has for one very annoying man, Wyatt.

I have to be frank in the fact that I never warmed up to Wyatt.  I don’t know why that was, he certainly turned himself around by the story’s ending but that’s what happens sometimes – that reaction certainly took nothing away from the story nor his interactions with the Monroes, Gabby, or Laurel and Ashley.  Now, Ashley, I adored for several reasons but mainly because she’s looking in the mirror and not liking what she sees and sets out to change herself into the woman she wants to be, one that she believes is capable of the multi-tasking career moves she’s making.  And a woman who can stand toe-to-toe with Wyatt on her own terms.

We get the chance to run into several familiar faces in Second Chance, and perhaps get a different viewpoint of some of those family members along the way.  I enjoyed being back in this series, and while I still have some catching up to do I’ve had fun with the Monroes and their small mountain town.

I own a Kindle edition of this title.
