I really enjoyed this second chance at love romance. Both of the main characters are in their forties and have lived separate lives in different states for over twenty years before crossing paths again. With the death of her estranged father, Bonnie has to go back to a home that holds bad memories in order to literally get rid of her past. The last thing Bonnie was expecting to find when faced with severing the last ties to her father is being able to reconcile with a past love.
The fact that Rohn had gone on to truly fall in love and cherish another woman in their time apart was a realistic touch to the story that I appreciated. Rohn's and Bonnie's lost chance at love was traumatic for them both but their lives didn't end and they both moved on with their lives. Rohn is the kind of man that you would want for yourself and your best friends and was a perfect fit for Bonnie. Bonnie is strong and capable, and although she carries the scars from her relationship with her father and her guilt over her loss of Rohn; she didn't let it stop her from leading a life that she was enjoying. Bonnie wasn't looking to be saved and didn't really need to be, but reconnecting with Rohn despite the reason for their separation was a nice turn to her life. Bonnie doesn't really think that she deserves a second chance with Rohn, but it just goes to show that you can't presume what is best for other people.
MIDNIGHT WRANGLER is an enjoyable read with a touch of humor mixed in. If you enjoy sweeter romances with a small town setting and the added bonus of the characters being real grown ups this is a great one to pick up!
