Last Chance Christmas

Dear Reader,
I've been wishing for a miracle for my oldest boy, Stone, and this Christmas my prayers might just be answered!

Her name is Lark, and she's here in Last Chance, looking into her father's past-and stirring up a whole mess of trouble without meaning to. As the chief of police, Stone sure has his hands full trying to keep up with her. Ever since his wife died, Stone's put everything into raising his daughters and dodging the Christ Church Ladies' Auxiliary matchmakers. And it's clear Lark has been through some trouble and could use a place to finally call home. I only hope Stone can let go of the past soon enough to keep her . . .

Goodness, I need to stop talking and finish up Jane's highlights so we can make the town tree-lighting. You come back by because the Cut 'n' Curl's got hot rollers, free coffee, fresh-baked Christmas cookies-and the best gossip in town.

See you real soon,
Ruby Rhodes

My thoughts...

Stone is the Chief of Police in a small town in South Carolina. A charming place where you can hear all the latest gossip at the beauty parlor. A church or two on every block. Stone has two daughters, his mother Ruby, is determined to find him a wife.

Lark is in town to fulfill her father's last wish, to spread his ashes in the place he loved...Last Chance, South Carolina. When the two meet Stone realizes she is hurting deeply and needs a place to call home.

This is not only a romance but a look into the 1960's civil rights battle. An interesting read with a disappointing ending. I give it 4 out of 5 stars.

I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

I read Last Chance Beauty Queen by Ramsay a couple of months ago and mostly enjoyed it. I'll have to give this one a try too. I'm sorry the ending was disappointing. Does it wrap up the story or is there room for other books?
