Book Description

"Last Chance captures the essence of Southern charm and quirkiness. I'm totally captivated!" --- Sherryl Woods, New York Times bestselling author

Molly Canaday wishes she could repair her life as easily as she fixes cars. She was all set to open her own body shop in Last Chance when her mother ran off and left her to manage the family yarn shop instead. Now guided by the unsolicited-though well-intended-advice of the weekly knitting club, Molly works to untangle this mess. But her plan unravels when the new landlord turns out to be difficult-as well as tall, dark, and handsome.

Simon Wolfe returns to quickly settle his father's estate and then leave Last Chance for good. Still wounded by a broken heart, Simon is surprised when the town's charming streets and gentle spirit bring back good memories. Soon the beautiful, strong-willed Molly sparks a powerful attraction that tempts him to break his iron-clad no-commitment rule. Can Simon and Molly find a way to share work space-and build a future together in Last Chance?

Review

"Last Chance captures the essence of Southern charm and quirkiness. I'm totally captivated!" (Sherryl Woods, New York Times bestselling author)

"4 Stars! Ramsay's romance packs just enough heat in this holiday-inspired story, with lead characters who will induce both belly laughs and smiles. Her hero and heroine are in for rough times, but their heartache and longing had me longing right along with them."
(RT Book Reviews on Last Chance Christmas)

"4 1/2 stars! Get ready for a story to remember...with characters that define eccentric, off the wall and bonkers, but most of all they're enchantingly funny and heartwarmingly charming." (RT Book Reviews on Last Chance Beauty Queen)

"Witty, touching, and absolutely delightful - this story has heart!" (JoAnn Ross, New York Times bestselling author of The Homecoming on Welcome to Last Chance)

"Welcome to Last Chance is an impressive start to a charming new series, featuring quirky characters you won't soon forget." (Barbara Freethy, New York Times bestselling author of At Hidden Falls)

"Last Chance, South Carolina, is a caring community filled with the promise of hope. Come for a visit!" (Lori Wilde, New York Times bestselling author of The Welcome Home Garden Club)

"Ramsay strikes an excellent balance between tension and humor as she spins a fine yarn." (Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Welcome to Last Chance)

"A sweet confection . . . This first of a projected series about the Rhodes brothers offers up Southern hospitality with a bit of grit. Romance readers will be delighted." (Library Journal on Welcome to Last Chance)

About the Author

Hope Ramsay grew up on the North Shore of Long Island, but every summer Momma would pack her off under the care of Aunt Annie to go visiting with relatives in the midlands of South Carolina. Her extended family includes its share of colorful aunts and uncles, as well as cousins by the dozens, who provide the fodder for the characters you'll find in Last Chance, South Carolina. She's a two-time finalist in the Golden Heart and is married to a good ol' Georgia boy who resembles every single one of her heroes. She lives in Fairfax, Virginia, where you can often find her on the back deck, picking on her thirty-five-year-old Martin guitar.

3.0 out of 5 stars B- rating.... November 22, 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback
My Review:
On the one hand, I liked this book. The set-up for the story was good and interesting. The writing was clean and well-done. I loved the parallels in the book to Little Women...including the final scene. That definitely made this Little Women reader/lover a very happy camper. I liked the quirky little town and the knitting shop. And I loved Simon's assistant, Angel.

I did have problems with the characters though. By my calculations the heroine was 28 years old in the book. She still lives at home and still will NOT stand up for herself when it comes to her parents. What??? I understand this was a major source of the story's conflict, but it was never resolved. Instead something tragic happened to the family and it was swept under the rug as not important anymore. WHAT?? OMG, this drove me batty. I'm an idealist when it comes to my romance reading. I want a hero and heroine who I can look up to. While Molly was incredibly strong in some aspects, she CONSTANTLY let every single member of her family walk all over her. And she just took it, over and over again. Simon wasn't as bad....he did escape his tyrant parents 18 years ago. (And honestly, the way the story line is written it says that he made a mistake by doing so...ugh) Then he didn't stand up for himself or Molly any better when it came to her father trying to railroad him. Why, why, why??? This could have been such an amazing book, but that aspect ruined it for me.

okay, rant over. If you are a reader of the series, you will probably enjoy this one. I can see how the series is probably very good (which is good because I'm pretty sure I have a couple of these on my TBR pile.) The writing is clean and exceptionally easy to read. For this book, I simply had personal character issues.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Your life should be built on no regrets November 25, 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback
When Simon Wolf reconnects with Molly Canaday after 18 years apart the feelings are not just quick to reignite they are explosive. Both have kept their heart well protected from pain after trying to overcome difficult childhood experiences. Molly and Simon have chosen careers for themselves that fulfill destinies and desires. Simon is a gift artist and Molly and no frills auto mechanic. Both fought stereotypes that said no that is not the right career for you.

Simon and Molly fight the connection, ignore the chemistry, and keep pushing each other away to no avail. While Simon settles his father’s estate and rebuilds a relationship with his mother, Molly is attempting to pull her family back together and pick up where her missing mother left off. The one comfort they both find is in each other’s arms and while the reality is they may not live in a carefree town but life does not have to be this serious all the time

As trouble brews around them and issues are brought to the forefront Simon and Molly seem to finally realize that alone is not always the best way to live.

Hope Ramsay gives every reader characters that are full love, life experiences, and in search of a lifelong romantic match.

Hope Ramsey takes us an another visit to Last Chance, South Carolina, a town filled with fun, quirky people in a story rich with family, romance and the eternal struggle of trying to determine exactly where you belong and where your life is headed. Family and the ties that can bind you, shape you or push you away is a major theme throughout this novel and more than one person has to step back and reassess who they are and what they really want for their lives. And sometimes the only way to move forward is to turn around and face everything you thought you knew about your past and come to peace with it once and for all.

Simon Wolfe is back in Last Chance for the funeral of his estranged father and he isn't happy about it. He left 18 years ago feeling rejected by his parents because he couldn't be what they wanted him to be. Returning after all this time, Simon has to sort out what is real and what is not and when his own mother doesn't recognize him and the cute little daughter of his high school Coach and mentor has grown up to be a beautiful young woman who stirs something inside him he thought was dead, he realizes that the quick trip back home he had planned is going to be anything but.

Molly Canaday is having a rough time. She's 28 years old, still living at home, her mother suddenly decides to go see the world and leaves Molly in charge of the house, the family and her mother's knitting shop and her dream of owning her own car restoration business seems to be crumbling down around her ears. Her only solace is the joy she finds in restoring a beautiful old car and spending time with her best friend Les.

4.0 out of 5 stars Small Town Charm December 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I've been reading this series from the beginning and always enjoy my visits to this small Southern town. Like many series books this one includes a lot of characters who have little involvement in the story but who add to the homey atmosphere. Ms. Miriam is still playing matchmaker.

Molly and Simon both grew up in Last Chance. Molly was the daughter of the revered football coach; Simon's dad owned the car dealership. Both are talented and working in fields they love. Both know they are not what their parents want them to be. Both need to learn some self-love before they are ready to give love to others. While they are the main couple in the book, Molly's friend Les also finds love; not Molly as everyone in town expects but with an older woman.

While this book can by no means be considered a serious read it does deal with serious topics including how our marriages affect our children, how parents need to allow children to chart their own courses in life and how spouses need to pay attention to each other's needs and desires (and I'm not just talking about bedroom desires). Hope Ramsay's "take-away" idea in this book is that we tend to have more regrets about the things we did not do than the things we did.

While definitely not a chaste book, it is not terribly graphic either.

I'd like to thank the publisher for making a review copy available via NetGalley. Grade: B+
