Kaitlyn Reed and Steven Braden have always had a similar philosophy of life: when the going gets tough, they get going–out of town and away from the problem. Now they are both back in Last Chance, New Mexico, and trying to start over.
Kaitlyn is working to reestablish a relationship with the seven-year-old daughter she left behind six months earlier. Steven is trying to prove to his family that he is not the irresponsible charmer they have always known him to be. As Kaitlyn and Steven find themselves drawn to one another, one big question keeps getting in the way: How will they learn to trust each other when they don’t even trust themselves?
Cathleen Armstrong is the author of Welcome to Last Chance, winner of the ACFW Genesis Award for Women’s Fiction in 2009 and the first volume in the series A Place to Call Home. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband, Ed, and their corgi, but her roots remain deep in New Mexico where she grew up and where much of her family still lives.
These books just keep getting better and better! At Home in Last Chance is book 3 in Cathleen Armstrong’s A Place to Call Home series. Favorite characters from previous books make their appearances along with prodigals Kaitlyn Reed and Steven Braden. These two characters are known for their mess-ups and lack of commitment. And in a small town, its hard to overcome the expectations of friends and family. Kaitlyn and Steven both mourn poor past decisions and their tendency to run when when things get tough. They aren’t cut a lot of slack by the inhabitants of Last Chance — they have to prove themselves.
Proving oneself — isn’t that what keeps many people from trying in the first place? Made to feel like a failure or a ne’er-do-well, people often just give up before they start. At Home in Last Chance made me examine my own motives, choices and opinions. This contemporary romance novel provided another great visit to this little New Mexico town. Can’t wait to return with book 4, Last Chance Hero. More on that one in a few weeks.
