Sassy Server as a Single Mother

At Home in Last Chance

Cathleen Armstrong

Last Chance #3

What happens when the life you’re running from won’t let go of your heart?

Kaitlyn Reed and Steven Braden have never thought much about responsibilities, or consequences, or even people who might be counting on them. If they didn’t like the way life was unfolding, they just took off, and let someone else pick up the pieces. But that long, open road has a way of circling back, and now they are both at home in Last Chance, wondering if there is one more chance for them.

Kaitlyn wants more than anything to reestablish a relationship with the daughter she left behind six months earlier, but seven-year-old Olivia is in no hurry to let her mother back in her life. And Chris, the older brother who took them both in, still treats her like the wayward little sister she has always been.

Steven is trying to prove to his family that he is not the irresponsible charmer they have always known him to be. But that’s not proving easy, as “Steven is just Steven” has long been the prevailing viewpoint of not only his family, but the whole town.

Kaitlyn and Steven find themselves drawn to one another, despite the misgivings and warnings of the fine folk of Last Chance. And as their relationship unfolds, they learn to understand, trust, and forgive—first each other, and finally themselves.

     I was really impressed at this overview. I didn’t even notice how long it was (compared to the one on the back of the cover) until I put it into Windows Live Writer. I personally like this overview much better than any other. All the information provides a more complete idea of what you’re getting yourself into when you pick up the book.

     At Home in Last Chance is a sequel to Welcome to Last Chance (and one other book), but the book itself provides enough context to start any where you like. I really liked this one in particular. Kaitlyn finally takes a real role as an adult, and we’re rooting for her the entire time. For a lot of the characters it seemed like if the liked the daughter then they liked the mother, and when they didn’t like the daughter the feeling followed through to the mother. It was kind of cool.

     This series was soooo cute. I loved the little small town, and how they really had only one or two of different kinds of stores. They also have a problem with alcohol, so there is no bar. It is just cute, and you can practically see the little Victorian homes lining the adorably small town streets. Time to try something new… Contemporary Fiction. Contemporary Western Fiction.

I received a copy of this book from the publishers in exchange for my honest review.
