At Home in Last Chance by Cathleen Armstrong

Kaitlyn Reed does not enjoy being stuck in Last Chance, her desire to leave the small town only tampered by her young daughter, whom she has no wish to leave ever again. But working for her brother at the local diner and listening to the remarks of the townspeople grows weary, and she dreams of becoming something more than a waitress with a sketchy past. Steven Braden endures similar stares and whispers in the small town for his reputation as a womanizer and his lack of direction. Drawn together by their irresponsible pasts, Kaityln and Steven learn lessons of forgiveness and trust in their mutual desire to start fresh.

Having read the other books in this series, At Home in Last Chance has probably the most endearing characters, both of which recognize their realistic flaws and desire to move beyond past hurts. Their stories encourage the reader to cheer for their success. However, the plot, like the first two books, is still too simplistic and clichéd for the novel to contain much depth. The story has an overall pleasant theme and the connections of characters to the first two novels are notable, but it is not truly a book that one would have difficulty putting down. An average contemporary novel, this book is recommended for those who enjoy stories of small town folk and happy endings.

I received a copy of this book from Revell Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
