The red warning light on her car dashboard forces Lainie Davis to seek help in the tiny town of Last Chance, New Mexico. But as she encounters the people who make Last Chance 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 for Lainie's comfort - especially since she's on the run and hoping to slip away unnoticed.
Yet in spite of herself, Lainie finds that she is increasingly drawn in to the dramas of small town life. An old church lady who always has room for a stranger. A handsome bartender with a secret life. A single mom running her diner and worrying over her teenage son. Could Lainie actually make a life in this little hick town? Or will the past catch up to her even here in the middle of nowhere?
Welcome to Last Chance, author Cathleen Armstrong's debut novel, is filled with complex, lovable characters making their way through life and relationships the best they can.

- Coincidence by Maureen on 8/11/13
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!
