Book Review: One More Last Chance

One More Last Chance (A Place to Call Home, #2)Author: Cathleen Armstrong
Publication Date: May 6, 2014
Publisher: Fleming H. Revell Company
Series: A Place To Call Home # 2

Sarah Cooley has come home to Last Chance, New Mexico, for one reason--because it doesn't change. After an engagement gone bad with a man who wanted to change everything about her, Sarah is more than ready for the town whose motto may as well be, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

Chris Reed, on the other hand, wants nothing more than to spark some change in the little town. As the new owner of the Dip 'n' Dine, he's shaking things up to draw folks from all over the Southwest into his restaurant.

As it turns out, the winds of change are blowing into Last Chance--just not in the ways that Sarah or Chris might expect.

With the same evocative writing and fascinating characters that won fans for her debut novel, Cathleen Armstrong invites readers back to Last Chance for a soul-searching, romantic story of two people navigating the twists and turns of small-town life.

“Not that you aren’t as cute as a bug’s ear, of course. That just makes it icing on the cake.”

“I’m a small town girl now.”

There were no secrets in Last Chance.

Much like the first book in this series, One More Last Chance provides readers with a cozy small town feel and a heroine who is ready to change her life and make a difference. Sarah Cooley is a college graduate who is ready to start her career as an elementary teacher back in her hometown. Sarah returns and is able to rent a small house just down the street from her grandmother. She notices that not much has changed in the small town since she last saw it, nothing except the new owner of the Dip ‘n’ Dine, Chris Reed.

Anything that happens in a small town is sure to make readers laugh and feel that they are part of all the banter. Last Chance, New Mexico is no different. There is a wide range of fascinating characters, including Sarah and Chris, who keep Last Chance afloat with all their gossip, drama, and overall togetherness. Anyone who has ever lived in a small town will of course be able to relate to this charming story.

The romance as well as all the endearing characters made this book a really fun, easy read. I often thought to myself that this would be a perfect series for a young adult or preteen who is just starting out in the romance genre. The book has some really great messages behind it, and having read the first book in this series I can say the same for it as well.
