Last Chance Hero

by Cathleen Armstrong

What happens when your heart is intercepted before you even know it’s in play?

The folks in Last Chance, New Mexico, could not be more pleased. Dr. Jessica MacLeod has opened an office right on Main Street and Andy Ryan, the best athlete the little town ever produced, has come home from the NFL to coach the high school football team. Unfortunately, Dr. Jess immediately gets off on the wrong foot with this football-obsessed town when she admits that she’s never seen a football game, isn’t really interested in doing so, and in fact doesn’t know a first down from a goalpost. 

Despite having little in common, Jess and Andy find themselves drawn to each other. But when a disagreement over the future of an injured player puts them both on the defensive, it begins to look like this game is over . . . 

Cathleen Armstrong lives in Orange County, California, with her husband, Ed, and their corgi. Though she has been in California for many years now, her roots remain deep in New Mexico. Her debut novel Welcome to Last Chance won the American Christian Fiction Writers Genesis Award for Women’s Fiction. She is also the author of One More Last Chance and At Home in Last Chance.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

 Dr. Jessica MacLeod is the new Dr in Last Chance, New Mexico. Not realizing how much of a football town it was, Jessica let everyone know she didn’t know anything about football, had never been to a game. Which was not good for her. And to make matters worse, the Dr. is attracted to the towns high school football coach, who just happened to play for the NFL. Dr. Jessica better change her attitude about football or she could have problems in Last Chance. Even though I didn’t enjoy this book as much as I did the others in this series, it was still an enjoyable read. If nothing else, it sure tells you what happens when a new non-football person moves into a town crazy about their high school football team. Cathleen Armstrong weaves together a fun and entertaining story that will give readers several hours of good clean, enjoyable reading. This entire series is a wonderful set of books for you to add to your wish list!

Revell Presents……At Home in Last Chance by Cathleen Armstrong

At Home in Last Chance

by Cathleen Armstrong

At Home in Last Chance by Cathleen Armstrong

What happens when the life you’re running from won’t let go of your heart?

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?

With emotional depth and characters who leap off the page and into your heart, Cathleen Armstrong invites you to return once more to the dusty and delightful town of Last Chance.

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. She is the author of Welcome to Last Chance, winner of the 2009 American Christian Fiction Writers Genesis Award for Women’s Fiction, and One More Last Chance.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

For me, this was a really heartwarming story. Kaitlyn was trying to get her life together after leaving her child with her brother to raise. Now she has to prove that she is the mother her daughter needs in order to get her daughter back. On the other hand, Steven is trying to prove that he has grown up, and ready to settle down. But would Steven and Kaitlyn be able to make a go of it together, with all of their past failures?

I have really enjoyed Catherine Armstrong’s A Place to Call Home Series, and I so much enjoyed this third book! The characters are very realistic and enjoyable to get to know. The lives of the characters sure keep readers wondering what will happen next! And I appreciate the detailed info about this little place called Last Chance. It is sure a place I would love to visit!
