Historical Fiction Book Review: The Outlaw's Second Chance

Publisher's Description

"When Cort Stanton and Aubrey Huxley try to claim the same land in the Oklahoma Land Run, Cort offers a deal—one that could help him keep his freedom. After taking the blame for his brother's crime, Cort needs to lie low, so he gives Aubrey the land for her horse ranch…if she'll hire him. Now he just has to avoid growing too close to the gorgeous seamstress, who can never know his secret.

Aubrey refuses to depend on any man, even one as handsome and kind as Cort. Yet, as they work together to make her dream a reality, it's impossible to imagine life on the prairie without him. And though Aubrey knows Cort has secrets that stand between them, she can't help but wish she could stake a claim on his heart."

My Review

In the historical novel, The Outlaw’s Second Chance, Angie Dicken has authored an endearing story of late 19th century pioneers who struggle to find forgiveness, redemption and love while fighting to survive and to secure a better life for themselves in the prairie lands of Oklahoma. Abounding with rich historical detail, this well-researched novel deftly draws the reader into the arduous adventures of those who chose to pursue the dangers and triumphs of daily life on the prairie. 

Ms. Dicken’s writing style is thoroughly engaging and delightfully descriptive. The story she has crafted is utterly enjoyable and inspiring. The well-paced plot, well-rounded characters, and well-drawn setting blend together to create an abundantly entertaining and satisfying reading experience offering just the right combination of history, intrigue, romance, and adventure. Entertaining from the first page to the last, The Outlaw’s Second Chance is a wonderful novel that deserves to be purchased, read, enjoyed, and recommended often.
