At Home in Last Chance

Title:  At Home in Last Chance
Author:  Cathleen Armstrong
Pages:  304
Year:  2015
Publisher:  Revell
The story began in Welcome to Last Chance, continued in One More Last Chance, now continues with At Home in Last Chance.  The novels focus on a small town that closes up at night; people don’t lock their doors and know each other’s business.  The characters readers met in book one are continued to be enjoyed through all three novels.  In each book, one character is the center of the writing as each learns how to live again when they felt as if they were beyond one more chance.
In this latest installment, we are following Chris’s younger sister Kaitlyn who we met early in the books.  She has abandoned her daughter Olivia to her brother’s care so she can take off to live.  Kaitlyn is a single mom and a very young woman who feels as if she can’t enjoy living if she always has to take care of her daughter.  Now, she finds herself once again in Last Chance, working for her brother in his diner and trying to regain the trust of her daughter.  Kaitlyn is a hairdresser by trade, but without a salon in the small town she is waitressing and hating every minute of it.
During her work time, Olivia goes to school and Elizabeth’s after school hours until either Chris or Kaitlyn get off work.  Kaitlyn meets Steve who has grown up in the area, served in the military, but whose past mistakes are shared with Kaitlyn as a way to warn her to stay away from him.  However, as they begin to spend time together, Kaitlyn and Steve begin to see that no matter how others view them, learning the truth of their lives from each other opens hearts. 
There is a lot more to the novel than I am sharing with you; it is entertaining while reminding us not to take gossip as gospel!  The romance, adventure and faith of the story make for a quick reading, but not a story to forget anytime soon.  I don’t know if there will be more stories from the author centered in the town of Last Chance or not, but do enjoy all three books as they are outstanding!
My rating is 5 stars!
