Product Description

Kaitlyn Reed and Steven Braden have always had a similar philosophy of life: when the going gets tough, they get going--out of town and away from the problem. Now they are both back in Last Chance, New Mexico, and trying to start over. Kaitlyn is working to reestablish a relationship with the seven-year-old daughter she left behind six months earlier. Steven is trying to prove to his family that he is not the irresponsible charmer they have always known him to be. As Kaitlyn and Steven find themselves drawn to one another, one big question keeps getting in the way: How will they learn to trust each other when they don't even trust themselves?

    One thing I love in book series is watching characters I dislike come to redemption. And one thing I adore is authors who can make you love the unlikable character. Cathleen Armstrong does just that in At Home in Last Chance. As with the other Last Chance novels, the town is a character all its own, and the side characters live and breathe, full of quirks and strengths and foibles. A story full of depth and truth. Please dont miss it!

    Review from Rambles of a SAHM

    Meets Expectations: 4
    If you've been reading this series you know that Kaitlyn Reed is a mess. In the last book, One More Last Chance, she abandoned her daughter at her brother's house and rode off into the sunset with her current love interest. Only to be abandoned herself by said lover. She not only had to call her brother to rescue her but she had no choice but to return to Last Chance with him.

    Like most small towns Last Chance residents tend to know everyone's business. That business includes Kaitlyn's story. So how does one go about repairing the damage they've caused in such a tight-knit place? Kaitlyn soon realizes that it takes time and perseverance.

    She decides one of the first steps is to swear off of men. But then the handsome Steven Braden crosses her path. He's also a mess of his own making. According to everyone that has an opinion these two should stay clear of each other. But sometimes contrary to popular opinion God begins to do a work in the most unlikely places.

    This is a great story of restoration and healing, not only from the community but from Kaitlyn and Steven themselves. Because sometimes the hardest person to forgive is yourself.

    I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.

    I liked it, but the pacing was slow

    THOUGHTS:

    // Cathleen Armstrong's writing style is well-rounded and full of spunk. She takes on a vibrant youthful approach, and I have to admit that I appreciated this aspect of her writing so very much, because while I don't read contemporary novels all that often, her choice of words really energized the prose, and this is what actually kept me reading

    // There were times however, when I wondered if this narrative was actually geared towards a more younger audience; even so, it works for every group of readers

    // In short At Home in Last Chance is a tale that paints the conflicts and strife that painful divorce situations, prejudices, family dynamics, and child abandonment can evoke. It is also a story about the perseverance in redeeming ones self-esteem, and further highlights the different emotional themes surrounding these delicate subjects. It was carried earnestly through sensitive and vulnerable characters that were believable

    // Living in a small town myself, I can state that the narrative's portrayal of small town living is a very realistic one which only added to the plot's effectiveness

    // The romance in this prose is very thin; in that, it has no real spark to it. So if you're looking for romantic story line to make that fuzzy heart flutter, this may not be the one to go for

    // At Home in Last Chance reminded me that while we often fear change, no matter how difficult it may be, it is possible to embrace it and at times, even necessary for our own well being

    WHAT I LIKED:

    (+) Unlike most of the contemporary novels that I have read, At Home in Last Chance had an authentic appeal to it and a real heartrending feel too, but the highlight for me was in the solidly and well-crafted characters. They were vibrant and believable; more particularly, their ordeals and internal conflicts, and how they aimed to find resolve in them

    (+) It is Kaitlyn Reed however, who proves to be the real gem in this narrative. If anything, I often found myself expressing complete admiration towards her humble and meek composure in spite of the buried animosity that the townsfolk in Last Chance held against her, and despite how weighty the consequences of her choices were. Not once did Kaitlyn show signs of resentment or malice. Instead, she accepted the repercussions and regret that stemmed from having done something beyond reparation

    (+) All the supporting characters were authentic and interlaced wonderfully with Kaitlyn's story. Gran however: the all-tender, all-knowing grande dame who holds everything and everyone together, was by far my favorite ♥

    WHAT I DIDNT LIKED:

    (-) Given the premise, I'm left wondering if At Home in Last Chance is actually the last book in its series, because while many issues were addressed, they essentially go unresolved. Thus leaving the reader with a lot to be desired

    (-) I found the pacing of the narrative to be a bit sluggish, but with the added essential tension between each character's internal conflicts, it sufficed to keep me interested

    (-) My main quibble with this book is that I found it to be a trifle long and too ordinary at times; this in turn, made the overall narrative feel much like a soap opera

    Personal Rating:

    Plot | 6/10

    Characters | 8/10

    Setting/Mood | 6/10

    Moral Value | 9/10

    Cover Art | 5/10

    Overall | 7/10

    At Home in Last Chance is the third book in Armstrongs A Place to Call Home series. Like the first two, this story is set in Last Chance, New Mexico. Kaitlyn Reed was introduced in the 2nd book, One More Last Chance, as Chris sister who dropped off her daughter and took off with her new boyfriend. Kaitlyn has returned to Last Chance in an effort to clean up her life and take care of her daughter. However, she finds it hard to escape her past mistakes in a town so small and seemingly judgmental. Throw in Steven Braden, charmer extraordinaire, and Kaitlyns task gets much more difficult. At Home in Last Chance is a story in which you cant help but care about the characters, and Armstrong adequately avoids predictability. I dont love the cover, mainly because its not at all how I picture Kaitlyn. Despite that, the story feels honest and realistic. Fans of Chris & Sarah will love seeing their story continue in this Last Chance novel. Highly recommended for fans of Contemporary Inspirational Fiction!
