One More Last Chance by Cathleen Armstrong [Review]

one more last chance


One More Last Chance is the second book in Cathleen Armstrong’s ‘A Place to Call Home’ series. Sarah Cooley grew up in Last Chance and has recently returned, seeking a place where change is not likely. Relationship problems led her home, and she’s hoping to get a fresh start in Last Chance. Chris Reed is new to town and the new owner of Last Chance’s single restaurant, the Dip n’ Dine. He’s not used to small town life and is quickly learning the residents of Last Chance don’t like anything to change. While struggling with decisions about the restaurant, his wild sister and young niece show up unannounced. That’s when the real story begins!

One More Last Chance is a small-town story about family, love, and fulfilling dreams. It is the first title of Armstrong’s that I’ve read, but I purchased the first book in the series so I can see what happened before this one! I really enjoyed this story. All of the characters are realistic, and you’ll find yourself rooting for and against certain ones. Gran (Sarah’s grandmother) is one of my favorite characters. She’s supportive, solid, and spiritual. One More Last Chance offered the perfect balance of drama, suspense, family, and romance. I recommend this book to anyone who likes christian fiction, family stories, or clean fiction. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens with Kaitlyn in the next book in the series!!

*I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Publisher’s Synopsis:

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.

Cathleen Armstrong is the award-winning author of Welcome to Last Chance. Though she lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, her roots remain deep in New Mexico where she grew up and where much of her family still lives. Learn more at
