The red warning light on her car dashboard drove Lainie Davis to seek help in the tiny town of Last Chance, New Mexico. But as she encounters the people who make Last Chance their home, it's her heart that is flashing bright red warning lights. These people are entirely too nice, too accommodating, and too interested in her personal life for Lainie's comfort--especially since she's on the run and hoping to slip away unnoticed.
Yet in spite of herself, Lainie finds that she is increasingly drawn in to the dramas of small town life. An old church lady who always has room for a stranger. A handsome bartender with a secret life. A single mom running her diner and worrying over her teenage son. Could Lainie actually make a life in this little hick town? Or will the past catch up to her even here in the middle of nowhere?
Cathleen Armstrong pens a debut novel filled with complex, lovable characters making their way through life and relationships the best they can. Her evocative descriptions, observational humor, and talent at rendering romantic scenes will earn her many fans.
Great book, loved it, can't wait to read the next one.
Highly recommend this book
This was a great read. I grew up in a small town and I'd swear some of the characters in Last Chance are people I know, except they're in another state. It's so nice to find a book that isn't full of swearing, gratuitous sex or God-bashing.
I thought the characters well developed and believable, and the dialogue natural.
I'm looking forward to more from this author.
Some of the hyper religiosity put me off, but the writing is very good. Interesting read.
