Last Chance Hero - A Place to Call Home 4 - by Cathleen Armstrong

Cover Art

About the book:

What happens when your heart is intercepted before you even know it's in play?
The folks in Last Chance, New Mexico, could not be more pleased. Dr. Jessica MacLeod has opened an office right on Main Street and Andy Ryan, the best athlete the little town ever produced, has come home from the NFL to coach the high school football team. Unfortunately, Dr. Jess immediately gets off on the wrong foot with this football-obsessed town when she admits that she's never seen a football game, isn't really interested in doing so, and in fact doesn't know a first down from a goalpost.

Despite having little in common, Jess and Andy find themselves drawn to each other. But when a disagreement over the future of an injured player puts them both on the defensive, it begins to look like this game is over . . .

My review:

This was a pleasant story with a hint of romance and a town full of quirky characters!  I found Jessica and Andy somewhat interesting and it was a little amusing to see how Jessica was being so stubborn about not wanting to even attend a game and give it a chance.  I also liked seeing how she had to learn to adapt to a small town and their interfering ways when she was used to living in a big city.  There was an interesting medical case I would have liked to see more about.  There was a little bit about faith in the story, but not much involving the main characters.  I would have liked to have seen more to Jessica's faith journey also.  I loved the town of Last Chance and getting to see the fun characters again.  I also liked getting to know Gabe and his family and could sympathize with his situation.  This story did work well as a stand-alone.  I liked the story, but it did seem a little boring to me.  You might like it if you like contemporary fiction with a hint of romance and stories set in small towns.

I received this book free from Revell in exchange for an honest review.
