About the Book:
Missy Piers is a school teacher, a young widow, and the only woman in town fiery enough to put a grumpy old blacksmith in his place. So when Leo asks her to help him catch a wife, she’s reluctant to do so.
Until she starts to fall for the awkwardly charming farrier.
Leo doesn’t know what to do about the infuriating yet intoxicating widow. She’s bossy, uptight, and…beautiful. And she makes him feel things he thought long buried.
Falling for Leo isn’t in Missy’s plans, he’s stubborn and entirely too handsome. So why does his presence make her weak and why does his touch make her yearn for something more?
When these two opposing spirits are offered a second chance at what they’ve lost, will they find love or will their hearts forever be lonely?

A Second Chance Tale Steals My Heart
Missy is a widowed schoolteacher who has had her dreams of happily ever after crumbles, but it wasn’t when her late husband died. Her marriage was one that left her bereft of love and companionship. When she “borrows” a bucket, it brings her path across Leo’s, and the story starts there. She finds the blacksmith rough around the edges and ornery as an old mule with a thorn in his hoof.
She was quite surprised when Leo darkens her schoolhouse door with a proposition. He wants her to help him keep a wife and to teach him all he needs to know about gentle manners to do just that. As I read through the pages of this book, I found myself feeling as if I were a fly on the wall during their lessons. The yearning that Missy and Leo experience is palpable. Missy wants to be truly loved, and to have her own children to teach along with the town’s flock. Leo wants someone to share an intimate connection as well as the rest of their lives.
As the reader, I felt the fear, pain, and uncertainty that both well-written characters suffered. In the end, when Leo finally shows Missy how he truly feels about her, I craved the love and companionship that both Leo and Missy were searching for, and eventually found in one another. Another well-written, sweet love story by Lynn Winchester that I found hard to put down, even after the book covers was closed.
