Kathi Macias writes a hometown tale reminiscent of Anne of Green Gables, yet with a modern-day twist in Last Chance for Justice: A Bloomfield Novel.
She masterfully weaves a tale of mother-daughter love, complete with small-town gossips, a sweet romance, and a bit of mystery. I was enamored by the uplifting story, endearing characters, and the snuggle-down tale of loss, love, redemption, and discovery.

A Delightfully written story
Kathi MaciasÃ¢ÂÂ writing in this book flows flawlessly from beginning to end. I noticed in another review that someone had the same thought that I did about the writing reminding us of the Mitford Series.
I loved the two main characters, Lynn, the Mom and Rachel, the daughter. I loved the way both of them put God first in their daily lives, the way they loved each other, and the way they opened themselves up to new adventures together.
There is an old mystery looming that needs to be unraveled, new friends and old friends to meet and renew friendships and maybe more, an estate to settle and lives to settle.
This is a very easy book to read and I would recommend it to Young Adults and Adults alike. Last Chance for Justice was the first Kathi Macias book that I have read and I now plan to read more, I would love to find out about other people from Bloomfield, plus other books she has written.

An Inspirational and Smile-at-the-End Book
How long does it take to clear the name of an innocent man? So far, Last Chance Justice has waited several decades. In fact, he died with his name still bearing the shame of the missing $7.14 from the church offering.
(I know, Last Chance is a strange name--with an interesting reason why the Justice family called him that.)
Lynn Myers, recently widowed, now finds out her brother Myron has passed away, leaving her with a huge old house next to a graveyard and an old mystery. She and her just-graduated-from-college daughter Rachel set off for Bloomfield, the town where Lynn had been born and raised. A small town heavy in small-town activities and big-time gossiping. A week or two to settle the estate, and they should be able to leave there and go back to the home she'd had with her beloved husband.
She didn't care about this old mystery her brother had tried unsuccessfully to resolve. Really, $7.14? No one in town even seemed to remember the incident. Except Homer Tatum, deaf and hungry at the local retirement home; Jason, the scruffy, smelly, supposed caretaker living on Myron's property; and Miss Pearl, the last living member of the Justice siblings. Why bother?
And yet--It had been one of Myron's last wishes. And Rachel is interested--or maybe she just wants an excuse to stay in Bloomfield a little longer where two guys are vying for her attention.
To find out the answers, you must buy the book. I mean, it's by Kathi Macias, one of the best inspirational writers in the business--how far wrong can you go?
