Some things never change . . . and some things change you forever.
Sarah Cooley has come home to Last Chance, New Mexico, for one reason--because it doesn't change. After a relationship 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 charming characters that won fans for her debut novel, Cathleen Armstrong invites you back to Last Chance for a heartwarming, romantic story of two people navigating the twists and turns of life in a small town.
My Review:
I really enjoyed returning to Last Chance. This is the second book in the series. It can stand alone but the characters are the same. The book focuses more on Sarah and Chris. I loved both of them. The secondary characters are good too. Sarah moves back home because she loves it and had a relationship go bad. She loves how it never changes and especially the diner. Chris bought the diner and is trying to change things up a little but to much opposition from some town members including Sarah. The characters and plot are interesting and well developed. I liked the author's writing and atmosphere created. I recommend the whole series. It is a great small town feel to it. :)
