Welcome To Last Chance by Cathleen Armstrong

About the Book:

She's learned you can't count on anyone--but she didn't count on landing in Last Chance.
The red warning light on her car dashboard may have driven Lainie Davis to seek help in the tiny town of Last Chance, New Mexico, but as she meets the people who make this one-horse town their home, it's her heart that is flashing bright red warning lights. These people are entirely too nice, too accommodating, and too interested in her personal life--especially since she's on the run and hoping to slip away unnoticed.

Yet in spite of herself, Lainie is increasingly drawn into the small-town dramas and to a handsome local guy with a secret of his own. Could Lainie actually make a life in this little town? Or will the past catch up to her even here in the middle of nowhere?

My Thoughts:

Wow, Lainie is one tough young woman!  But she's had to be to get as far as Last Chance.  Now the question is can she let down her walls of protection in order to heal and learn to trust?

Ray owns the local bar, but he's a reluctant businessman dreaming his way out of the town that made him who he is today.  When his hopes for the future collide with Lainie's past, sparks fly and the drama gets intense...and I don't necessarily mean the romantic kind!

Fayette is a hoot, Elizabeth is a sweetheart and Steven is trouble on two legs.  Stay in Last Chance a while and you'll meet a whole cast of quirky characters...kind of reminds of me Mitford, just with more attitude!

I fell in love with Cathleen's little town, and her writing had me grinning and crying: sometimes in the same chapter.  I hope she keeps going with these characters, or at least writes more novels with this small town flavor.

I received a copy of "Welcome to Last Chance" from Revell Publishing in exchange for an honest review.  Cathleen Armstrong in a new author to keep your eye on, and to put on your list of 'must reads'.  Four out of five stars from me.

Pick up a copy of "Welcome to Last Chance", available in stores now, put up your feet and enjoy a great reading experience!

Happy Reading!
