Last Chance Beauty Queen--My Review

About the Book:

Dear Reader,
Gracious me, my beautiful daughter Rocky sure could use my help. I always knew she wasn't much interested in the local boys - but who'd have thought she'd come home with English royalty? 
Trouble is, Hugh wants to buy some of our folks' land. We don't want to sell, but Rocky's job depends on her closing the deal. And though Hugh's obviously smitten, I'm not sure he's right for my Rocky. Oh, he's classy and handsome - and you should've seen the way he judged pies and fixed stock cars at our Watermelon Festival! - but what do we know about him, really? I know I sound like a nervous mother hen, but after forty happy years with my Elbert, all I want is to see my little girl find the same. 
Well, time for me to quit chattering and get back to Miss Bray's wet set. Always nice talking to you, and remember: the Cut 'n Curl's got hot rollers, free coffee, and the best gossip in town.
See you real soon, 
Ruby Rhodes

My Comments:
This is another in the series of books about the Rhodes family from Last Chance South Carolina.  Like the others, it straddles the line between mass-market romance with its steamy bedroom scenes and Christian romance with its church services.  In other words, it has both.  The church scenes are brief and make a point; the bedroom scenes are too.  Yes, you know what they are doing, and they do it outside of marriage, but if you didn't know how to and were looking for instructions, you'd be a little confused.  

I liked Rocky/Caroline.  I related to her insecurity and desire to please.  Ms. Miriam and her marriage predictions make me smile--at first her description sounds nothing like the "right" guy; later we learn she was spot-on.  Hugh was a sweetheart and I loved the descriptions of his smile.  There is more than one resolved romance in this book and Hope Ramasy foreshadows where she is going with the angels, so my guess is that there is at least one more book in this series.  I look forward to reading it, and give this book a B+.  

I'd like to thank the publisher for making a review copy available via NetGalley.  I was not obligated to write a positive review (or any review).

  1. Oh - this reminds me I have Home at Last Chance that I need to add to my reading list in the next month or so. I enjoyed the first book - an easy read.
    Thanks for sharing your review.
