One More Last Chance By Cathleen Armstrong

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 loved Cathleen's debut book Welcome to Last Chance but this one blow me away.
I never put it done once I started reading it. I fell in love with Sarah and Chris and I just had to know how it was going to end. To say I was so happy is an understatement.
If by chance you read book one in the A Place to Call Home series then you will remember some of the characters in this book as will they make an appearance in this story.
I have to say this is a must read and I highly recommend this book. This is a book Binge book no doubt.
I gave 5 stars to this book.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.
