At Home in Last Chance

What happens when the life you're running from won't let go of your heart? Kaitlyn Reed and Steven Braden have always had a similar philosophy of life: when the going gets tough, they get going--out of town and away from the problem. Now they are both back in Last Chance, New Mexico, and trying to start over.

Kaitlyn is working to reestablish a relationship with the seven-year-old daughter she left behind six months earlier. Steven is trying to prove to his family that he is not the irresponsible charmer they have always known him to be. As Kaitlyn and Steven find themselves drawn to one another, one big question keeps getting in the way: How will they learn to trust each other when they don't even trust themselves?

With emotional depth and characters who leap off the page and into your heart, Cathleen Armstrong invites you to return once more to the dusty and delightful town of Last Chance.

Review by Blanche Mancuso

I have read several books in this series and enjoyed every single one of the stories. Each one can be read as a stand alone novel. I have grown to love the town of Last Chance and the people in it. Mrs. Armstrong has become one of my favorite authors after having read several of her books. Mrs. Armstrong guarantees to always bring a great plot with strong characters of family and friends through prayer.

I don't usually comment on the romance in stories but the romance between Kaitlyn and Steven was really good. It had just the right amount of romance without being over the top or distracting from the story as a whole. A quick read and one that I would suggest to others to check out.

Cathleen Armstrong lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband, Ed, and their corgi. Though she has been in California for many years now, her roots remain deep in New Mexico where she grew up and where much of her family still lives. She is the author of Welcome to Last Chance, winner of the 2009 American Christian Fiction Writers Genesis Award for Women's Fiction, and One More Last Chance.
