Last Chance Hero
The inhabitants of Last Chance, New Mexico, could not be more pleased. Dr. Jessica McLeod has opened an office right on Main Street. Andy Ryan, the best athlete the little town ever produced, has ended his short career in the NFL and has come home to coach the mighty Pumas of Last Chance High. Unfortunately, Dr. Jess immediately gets off on the wrong foot when she admits that she's never seen a football game, isn't really interested in doing so, and, in fact, doesn't know a first down from a home run. Meanwhile, Coach Ryan is discovering that it's not easy to balance atop the pedestal the town has put him on. When this unlikely pair is drawn together over the future of a young player--whose gifts may lie in the laboratory rather than on the football field--they begin to wonder if they might have a future together as well.
With the flair that has made her Last Chance books a favorite among readers of contemporary fiction, Cathleen Armstrong draws on the passion Americans have for the traditions of small-town high school football.
Review by Blanche Mancuso
This book, Last Chance Hero by author, Cathleen Armstrong was a book that once I started reading I could not lay it down. Last Chance could have been written about every small town around America or even the world. What I mean by this is that parents marry and become families of their own raising young men and women, who are taught in schools and churches on what our God given rights are. All boys and girls can learn to love God, to be honest and loyal to their family, to their God and country, and fellow citizens.
Jessica was great. She was a bit stubborn but friendly at the same time. Also, the spark of romance between Jessica and Andy was nice. This is the last book in the series but I am ready to see the next series or book and read it by this author. I have read another book in this series and each one can be read as a stand alone novel. This author has become a favorite author of mine. I would recommend this book to readers.
