My Review - One More Last Chance by Cathleen Armstrong

4 out of 5 stars
ONE MORE LAST CHANCE is the second book in the A Place Called Home series by Cathleen Armstrong. ONE MORE LAST CHANCE is an easy read, with a simple love story.  Nothing too outlandish to stretch the imagination, but a feel good book just the same.
Sarah Cooley has returned to Last Chance, New Mexico, her hometown.  Taking a job as a school teacher and being near family were perks, but the main reason she’s returned to Last Chance is because nothing ever changes there.  Ever.  After a failed relationship, with a man that seemed to thrive on change, Sarah is looking forward to the constants that Last Chance provides her. 
As the new owner of the Dip’n’Dine, Chris Reed can’t wait to put his mark on Last Chance.  Owning his own restaurant is his dream, and he can’t wait to change up the menu and bring new life to the old diner.  But, he soon finds out the people of Last Chance like things just the way they are.
Sarah and Chris get off on the wrong foot, and continue to trip over each other.  Sarah hates the fact that Chris wants to change things, and Chris can’t seem to get the beautiful, but stubborn, brunette out of his head.  As they both deal with personal issues, somehow, their paths keep intersecting. Last Chance holds changes for both Sarah and Chris. The question is, will they allow the other to help them through their journey.
I really enjoyed ONE MORE LAST CHANCE.  The story was pretty predictable, but that didn’t impact the entertainment value.  Chris was a true hero in every sense of the word.  And Sarah, thought headstrong and tenacious, softened her sharp edges enough to allow her heart to experience love again.  Secondary characters like Juanita, Carlos, and Elizabeth definitely added warm and richness to the story.   The A Place to Call Home series is definitely worth picking up.  I will be looking for book three coming out in Spring 2015.
