Book 2 in the Second Chances Time Travel Romance Series
The mysterious "Reverend Johnson" is at it again: trying his hand at finding people who are at the end of their rope, desperately needing him to step in to give them a second chance at happiness.
Delaney Goodman has been running from her painful past all her life. Dreams of working with horses have long been replaced with the reality of doing anything to make ends meet. About to hit rock bottom, she accepts a stranger's proposition, even if it sounds too good to be true. She figures she has nothing, not even her dignity, to lose. She awakens in an unfamiliar setting - and century - and quickly discovers that she will need more than her charm to complete the task assigned to her.
On the surface, Tyler Monroe has everything going for him - good looks, the respect of his friends and neighbors, and a thriving horse ranch. However, his past holds deep wounds with thick emotional scars. When a brazen, beautiful woman arrives in town, Tyler makes an impulsive decision that will make him question everything he knows.
Tyler is unlike any man Laney has ever met. Laney is exactly the kind of woman Tyler wants to avoid. As the attraction between them grows, questions arise that stretch the boundaries of trust for both. The secrets that threaten to tear them apart could be exactly what Tyler and Laney need to bring them together.

It stands alone, I can't think of any book I could compare it to.
Everything! Great voice and characterization!
Yes, the utter hopelessness of Delaney Goodman's situation from the onset of the book and beyond.
He doesn't trust women, she don't trust men!
Although raised in different centuries they both have deep emotional scars that effects their relationships with the opposite sex, and each other.
Yet they have something in common; their love for horses.
Who is trying to hurt the horses?
Proud Canadian who loves Jesus, Dogs, Country Music, Lilacs, Gregory Peck movies and audio-books with a HEA.
I really enjoyed this story. Laney and Tyler are soul mates separated by time. They both needed each other to heal their broken hearts. The intrigue was very nicely done. I really didn't see how they would get their Happily Ever After.
Realistic time travel story. Good characters overcoming obstacles to end up together. Ending leads directly to book 3. I have been reading these in order which I suggest to anyone to do the same. Love the Narrator.
This was an awesome book to read and an awesome audio book to listen to. Cody Roberts did an outstanding job of narrating this audio and I really enjoyed listening to his voice. I do hope to hear him again.
I love this book of second chances and time travel. Delaney Goodman, a beautiful, lonely young woman raised in foster homes, with no family of her own, just wished to be able to work with horses, as a trained equine massage therapist. But with no way to pay for schooling and no place to stay, she was on her last hope. Tyler Monroe, never planned on marrying because of what happened between his mother and father when he was twelve. As the owner of a thriving horse ranch in Montana Territory, he thought he was happy and contented the way things were with his life. But the mysterious and loveable Reverend Johnson had other plans up his sleeve.
This audio book, just pulls you in from the beginning. I love how the author takes an idea about time travel and just runs with it, spinning a wonderful tale of romance, humor and a mystery/suspense to keep you listening. With a beautiful heroine and a handsome sexy cowboy/hero, how can you go wrong! Each one of Peggy L. Henderson's time travel books, is so different, I'll never get tired of listening to them. I love the characters, yes even the one who turns out to be the bad guy, who needs a story of his own and a second chance at a happy ever after. JudyE
This is one of the best I have heard.
.I liked the second half when Laney got to work with the horses and Tyler and her talked and communicated more while out riding. They became closer by learning about each other. He also saw how she worked with horses. Laney had showed him that she knew how to take care of sick and injured horses.
I loved Cody's voice of all the characters. The men were sexy and strong and Laney sounded soft not whiney like others I have heard for a woman. Cody has just the right amount of a twang that makes him sound so sexy, but not overdone.
I cried when Tyler brought Laney to his ranch and left her by her self in her room. I felt sad because Tyler didn't trust Laney.She felt so alone, not knowing what she was to do. I got anger with Gabe for treating Laney so badly trying to save himself. I loved when Tyler took Laney out riding, looking at the horses.
I liked the way it came alive with audio and gave me a new imagination and insight by hearing the story. This story brings out a lot of emotion in a reader. Well written story. Highly recommend listening to it.
Absolutely, I already have. Time travel, romance, realistic Characters, family drama, Love, anger, tender spots, what more could you want??
My favorite is Tyler. He just warmed my heart as we follow his journey from being angry about Laney being there and not wanting to fall in love, to embracing him life. I was fun to see him change from a hard man to a soft "melting like butter" man.
It is hard to pick just one. the book flowed so well. If I had to pick one it would be when Tyler was cooking and Laney said he could cook and she would go to (she almost slipped and said work). Tyler then said she could go work on the ranch and he would stay home and do the "easy" work.
I was so upset with Gabe. He is such a snake. He is so mean and nasty. I was just hoping he would get his payback.
this has to be one of my favorite books. I have read it 2 times on my kindle and listened to it once (so far) on my phone.
The first book in the series, "Come Home to Me".
Cody is one of my favorite performers. He "gets" the characters he plays and his prose is smooth and well done.
Yes, and I have!
I really loved this book. It is a story about a young woman who is down on her luck and sees her only option is to sell her body. Her first "John" is willing to give a chance to use her talent with horses rather than her body for food and shelter. Through her new job, she learns that she is worth much more than a paid escort. Her new job not only helps the horses that she is working with, but also their owner who has his own past ghosts.
If this seems a bit vague, it is meant to be since I do not want to give ANYTHING away!
This book left me wishing I'd just watched the movie. Fortunately, the narrator is so perfect for it and the writing is so good, that it's easy to feel like I really did just watch the movie.
I think it's a great portrayal of what life would be like if any one of us was thrown back in time to 1872. Imagine all the things you wouldn't know how to do suddenly. Simple things like cooking and cleaning could become elaborate tasks. Sickness couldn't be treated easily, and there weren't even bathrooms!!
Delaney had a rough life in current times, and gets her second chance. Tyler is used to the rough life of 1872 ranching but nothing could have prepared him for the arrival of a 21st century woman
This is supposed to be romance? After 3 hours of people bagging on the heroine I gave up.
I'm not sure. I really loved the first book in this series.
I found Cody's voice very distinctive. I wasn't a fan of the drawl.
Romance novels are supposed to be light and fun. This made me want to yell at the writer. The heroine is lampooned, criticized, restricted and duped. The premise of her being with the hero was ludicrous (married for a bet). Even though he says he loves her, he is so critical and mean to her I just wanted her to run.
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Great follow-up book where Rev. Johnson plays match-maker through time an offers desperate Laney a mission and in return she'll get her heart's desire which is working with horses.... and possibly the love of a good man. It's an offer she can't and daren't refuse but he failed to tell her that it's 150 years in the past.
Handsome and caring Horse breeder Tyler has a lot of emotional baggage and wants to stay away from women, especially fallen ones, but he's been set-up and is about to tell the expected mail order bride to go home but when he sees Laney step off the coach his resolve crumbles into dust. But this isn't the life, or century, Laney was expecting nor is she what Tyler is accustomed to in women which makes for a very enjoyable listen as chemistry, need, disastrous events and a vengeful hidden enemy bring two haunted but likeable characters closer together. As the character development brings mutual attraction, trust, lust, passion, sex and a tender love story, someone evil is plotting Tyler's downfall and Laney becomes a pawn in his terrible revenge with heartbreaking results.
Worth a credit? From the beginning to the end I enjoyed and was captivated by it all, the characters, the sweet romance, the unfolding dramas and the unfortunate dilemmas made me unable to hit the pause button until I realised dawn had broken and a new day was quickly approaching. So, yes a very credit-worthy listen that's got a hero you can't help but fall for and a great Narrator that brought him, and all the other characters, to life
