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.
I read the first book in this series quite a while ago and really enjoyed it. I was eager to dig into this, the second book of the A Place to Call Home series.
I found it very interesting that Sarah absolutely could NOT stand Chris in the beginning of the book. I couldn't wait to see how the author was going to develop a love story when Sarah didn't even want to be civil to Chris.
Chris, however, was smitten as soon as he laid eyes on Sarah. It made for interesting dynamics and storyline. Add in a seven-year-old niece with abandonment issues and it made for a delightful read!
The third book in this series is about Kaitlyn, Chris's sister, who I really disliked in this book. I'm excited to get my hands on the third book and read how the author brings about Kaitlyn's redemption.
