“For a while I thought maybe I was supposed to help all the lost souls wandering the halls of The Paradise,” Noah said, with self-deprecating humor…
“They’ve all told me how much you’ve counseled them,” Callie said. “There’s a reason everyone thinks you’re an angel.”
“Yes, but now I realize it wasn’t just about them.” His gaze centered on her. “I think maybe I was supposed to wait for something else. For someone else.”
When Callie Dalton’s charismatic, televangelist husband falls into disgrace, Callie goes down with him. Now he’s dead, leaving Callie to face the wrath of the public alone. With nowhere else to go, she takes her two young children and escapes to a place she’s spent most of her life trying to forget.
Shellwater Key holds memories of sweet childhood friendships…and the tragic death of her mother. Most everyone is horrified when Callie moves back in to the same house where her mother died, but after the scandal her options are limited. Except that same house now comes with a bonus…a handsome “pool boy” with changeable eyes, a killer smile, and shoulders wide enough to carry every one of her burdens.
Noah Johnson isn’t actually a pool boy. He’s the carpenter and resident “angel” at The Paradise Dinner Theatre, now owned by her friend, Layla McCarthy. After a disastrous and humiliating job hunt, Noah helps engineer a position as House Manager at the theatre. A chance to start over is an answer to prayer, but every instinct warns that proximity to the sexy and enigmatic Noah could be the most dangerous complication to Callie's life…and her wary heart. But when she learns the truth about Noah’s story and his former occupation, she's ready to run again. It will take a willingness to face her tragic past and embrace the possibilities of tomorrow for Callie to find the love that will finally set her free.
Great Addition Shellwater Key Tales
Last Stop At Paradise is an intense character driven novel. I could feel Callie's desperation as she tries to overcome her husband's duplicity. Wallace uses Callie, hated and reviled, to demonstrate the lessons of letting go, grabbing life, and going for the gusto. As well as, showing we are all human and face temptations, and sometimes succumb to those temptation; no one is exempt to human fragility.
Noah's fighting his own demons; yet, he knows God has something in store for him when he settles in Saltwater Key. Wallace builds the romance slowly as Noah and Callie battle their own insecurities and demons.

Last Stop at Paradise by Kristen Wallace
I loved this book! I loved the 3 old friends Layla, Emma and Callie. Their personalities fit together and they were constantly
The same thru the whole book.Callie met a lot of people going
To work for the Paradise Dinner Theatre. One of the friends was
Noah. He kind of liked Callie! Kristen has this book full of interesting charters. I would definitely recommend this book.
I was given this Advanced Readers Copy to voluntarily honestly
Get ready for Noah's backstory!
Kristin's books are heartfelt and usually make me tear up. This one made me cry. I'd been looking forward to finding out more about Noah Johnson since the very first book of the Shellwater Key series. I knew his backstory would be a good one, but I never suspected it would be so heart-breaking. I like how she includes religion in her books in a respectful way. This was an excellent end to the series, and I enjoyed it very much. (I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.)
