Review: One More Last Chance by:Cathleen Armstrong

 One More Last Chance (A Place to Call Home #2)
About the Book:
Sarah Cooley has come home to Last Chance, New Mexico, for one reason–because it doesn’t change. After an engagement gone bad with a man who wanted to change everything about her, Sarah is more than ready for the town whose motto may as well be, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
Chris Reed, on the other hand, wants nothing more than to spark some change in the little town. As the new owner of the Dip ‘n’ Dine, he’s shaking things up to draw folks from all over the Southwest into his restaurant.
As it turns out, the winds of change are blowing into Last Chance–just not in the ways that Sarah or Chris might expect.
With the same evocative writing and fascinating characters that won fans for her debut novel, Cathleen Armstrong invites readers back to Last Chance for a soul-searching, romantic story of two people navigating the twists and turns of small-town life.

My Review:
 Sarah is tired of change and tired of men, men that are trying to change her. So she heads back home to Last Chance, Mexico in the hopes that she can get a break from all these guys that want to change her. Nothing and I mean nothing bothers her more than that.

 The new owner of the Dip 'n' Dine, Chris wants the complete opposite--change. He would like this town to liven up a bit. Of course, the town doesn't see things his way, they enjoy everything just the way it is. He is going to need some help if he is ever to convince the townspeople that change is needed and needed soon.

 I love the down home country feel of this plot line. Each of the characters coming from humble beginnings are able to see life through to the end. Their honest character seeps through the pages into your heart as soon as you meet them! This series is full of life, love and family. I can't wait to see whats next!

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from Revell.
