Revell Presents Welcome to Last Chance A Novel by: Cathleen Armstrong

She's learned you can't count on anyone--but she didn't count on landing in Last Chance.
The red warning light on her car dashboard may have driven Lainie Davis to seek help in the tiny town of Last Chance, New Mexico, but as she meets the people who make this one-horse town 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--especially since she's on the run and hoping to slip away unnoticed.

Yet in spite of herself, Lainie is increasingly drawn into the small-town dramas and to a handsome local guy with a secret of his own. Could Lainie actually make a life in this little town? Or will the past catch up to her even here in the middle of nowhere?

About The Author

Cathleen Armstrong lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband, Ed, and their corgi. Though she has been in California for many years now, her roots remain deep in New Mexico where she grew up and where much of her family still lives. After she and Ed...

My Review:

Lanie Davis is on the road to no where, she is fleeing a bad relationship, and fate sends her to Last Chance, NM. The middle of no where, not even an open motel to lay her head in. Her car has sputtered its last sputter, and she has no idea what to do, or where to go.
Is it a coincidence she ends up here? I think not, God has placed her exactly where he wants her. Whether she wants it or not, the town seems to embrace her. Especially Elizabeth, who treats her like she is her own.
She also starts a rocky relationship with Ray, the local bar tender.
We also have the wayward brother Steve returning from the military, he is to relieve Ray of the bar. Ray is a wonderful artist who has sacrificed for his brother.
Be ready to feel at home in Last Chance, a place where everyone knows each other, and when something happens to one, they lend a hand. Makes you want to live there. We learn some good life lessons, one I personally find myself doing, judging, and they regretting. The Church Community is amazing, but of course there are always those who judge! Love how they learn to accept.
Will Lanie be to headstrong to accept the gift that she has been given? Will Ray finally have enough, and close the bar, and leave? Be ready for a quick, page turning read!

I received this book through the Revell Book Blogger's Tour, and was not required to give a positive review
