Desperate to escape her circumstances, Lainie Davis leaves with only her boyfriend's backpack and a cheap car that she hopes will take her far away. When her clunker only takes her as far as Last Chance, New Mexico, Lainie is forced to seek help in this close-knit town with people who seem almost too nice to be real. Within the small town atmosphere, Lainie finds a change within herself and a possible love interest, but time is running out as Lainie's old boyfriend is searching for her. Will Lainie's past always dictate her life? Or can she find a fresh hope for the future? Read more in Welcome to Last Chance by Cathleen Armstrong.
Welcome to Last Chance is
Cathleen's Armstong's debut novel and the first installment in the A
Place to Call Home
series. For readers who enjoy the small town atmosphere setting,
this novel is spot on. The characters were likeable and the suspense
of knowing that Lainie's old boyfriend was looking for her kept the
story moving. Personally, I felt there were some mixed moral
messages, but in light of Lainie's emotional and spiritual state when
she arrives, I can understand why they were in the book.
to Last Chance is a
tender story about life's changes and starting anew. I recommend it
only to readers who enjoy stories set in the small town atmosphere.
If you don't enjoy that setting, you probably won't enjoy this book.
If you do like that setting and are looking for a sweet fiction book
to curl up with over the weekend, Welcome to Last
Chance by Cathleen
Armstrong is for you.
Right now, Amazon and Barnes & Noble both have Welcome to Last Chance on sale for $1.99 for their e-readers.
