Book Review: One More Last Chance

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.

While I really enjoyed this book, I found that I far more enjoyed Chris' story than I did Sarah's story. I found Sarah's attitude about things never changing, even things that logically change all the time, to be a bit unrealistic and unsettling. That being said, the book is a good one that won't disappoint. Life does have a tendency to change in ways that we least suspect and this is exactly what happened for both Chris and Sarah.
