Last week I reviewed Cathleen Armstrong’s debut novel, Welcome to Last Chance. This week, her second novel, One More Last Chance, launched. I’m delighted to share it with you.
Chris Reed, the Dip ‘n Dine’s new owner, is determined to make changes in the menu, much to the frustration of Carlos, the cook. Sarah Cooley, Elizabeth’s granddaughter, has returned to Last Chance to teach. She, like many of the Last Chance townsfolk, doesn’t like change. And then there’s Olivia, who brings change to both of their lives in ways neither expected.
Once again, Cathleen has written a captivating and engaging novel. Not only are her characters likable and fully developed, but the town of Last Chance is itself a “character,” drawing the reader into the setting of rural New Mexico. As the plot twists and turns, we fall in love with both the characters and the town.
I know you’ll love the Last Chance series. It has a flavor unique among women’s fiction – grace with a side of chili.
