I really enjoy Miralee Ferrell. I have never read a book by her that I didn't enjoy. This book is no exception. The story captivated me from page one and didn't let me go until the very end. There was a surprising twist that even I didn't see coming! Justin and Alexia's interaction was tension filled. Sweet Toby provided the perfect relief to the suspense and tension. His little boy antics filled my heart!
The best part of the story was the message. I love how Miralee takes a deep, meaning filled message and integrates it seamlessly into a story. Both Justin and Alex had to learn to let go of their bitterness, anger, and mistrust in order to gain all that the Lord has for them. That's certainly easier said that done and Miralee does a great job of expressing that in each of her characters.
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is a great edition to the Love Finds You series and I look forward to reading more fantastic books by this fantastic author.
I love this book! It kept my interest from the beginning until the very end. The mystery and suspense is great.

Love Finds You in Last Chance, California has romance and mystery and is so intriguing I did not want to stop reading. This is a great book to read and I definitely recommend it especially if you like romance and/or mystery. I will be reading more of Author Miralee Ferrell's books.
I received a complimentary copy from the author in exchange for my honest review. This review is one hundred percent my opinion.
Another great book by author, Miralee Ferrell. I love the historical setting of this novel, the late 1800's end of the gold mining era in Last Chance, CA. Alexia is trying to tie up loose ends following her father's untimely death and save their ranch. Unbeknownst to her, her father had recently found gold and reached out to a friend to come help him find answers to some mysterious things going on at the ranch as a result. A mysterious stranger, Justin, comes to the ranch looking for a job and a more stable environment for his young son. This story has enough mystery and action to keep you turning the pages. There are horses stolen, fences cut, contracts dropped, love spurned, intrigue, murder, and a bit of romance. Can Alexia learn to trust God and those around her in time to save the ranch?
I look forward to reading the next book in the series. I was given a copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review which I have given.
California was a wild and beautiful place in the late 1800s: mountain peaks, plateaus, valleys, canyons, rushing streams, magnificent forests so much natural beauty. One would think everyone should have been able to live in peace. But it seems there are always people who want more than their share and will go to any lengths to get it. Those who want to live in peace often have to be willing to fight to maintain that peace. Love Finds You in Last Chance, California shows the worst and the best of human nature. A young woman whose father has died suddenly is trying to keep their ranch going but encounters one unwelcome surprise after another. A young man whose wife has died and left him with an infant son is intent on providing a home for his son and repaying a debt to an old family friend. Evil forces are at work against both of them and it causes them to find a renewed faith in God. As with other books by Miralee Ferrell, there is romance, drama, and surprising twists to the story. There is a redemptive quality to the book that I always find enjoyable and uplifting. I recommend the book because it drew me in and I could picture the events and the various scenes quite easily. It made me want to be there.
I appreciate receiving a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.
Have you ever wondered what it would feel like to live in another place and time? This was a heartwarming story that takes you back to 1877. Ms Ferrells descriptive writing will take you to the mountain ridges of Last Chance, California. Your mind will see the rocky ridges, the steep cliffs, the cedar and fir wooded lands, and the beautiful grassy meadows of a California horse ranch and the surrounding area. You will enjoy a time-accurate story without being bogged down by historical facts.
Romance is blossoming between characters, while complimented with a mix of mystery and suspense that will keep you turning the pages. I enjoyed the innocent touch of a child woven within the story. I always enjoy the way this author shares her Christian faith through her writing. When a book is entwined with these wonderful qualities and surrounded by an engaging plot line, you will not be disappointed. Very enjoyable!
