Last Chance Book Club: Book Review



About the Book:
After a painful divorce, Savannah White wants nothing more than to find her happy place. So when she gets the chance to pack up her life -and her son - and move to the idyllic town where she spent childhood summers, she jumps at the opportunity. Last Chance is just as charming as she remembered. She's even invited to join the local book club, where talk soon turns to Savannah's plan to bring the ramshackle downtown movie theater back to life. A new challenge is just what Savannah needs to move forward.. . . 
Dash Randall wants to put his fortune to good use, but he remembers Savannah as the bratty "princess" who descended upon him each June, causing no end of trouble. But the teenager he remembered has grown into a gorgeous and generous woman, and it isn't long before Dash finds himself wanting to make brand new memories with Savannah. But first, Dash and Savannah will need to make peace with their pasts to find a new chance for love.

My Comments:
Like the other books in  this series, Last Chance Book Club is a fun romantic novel full of quirky small-town characters.  Like the other books in the series, it includes both church services and a steamy bedroom scene.  Like the other books, it ends in happily ever after.

Savannah's parents never had time for her when she was a child, but her grandfather, who she visited each summer, made her feel cherished and special.  What she didn't realize as a child is that love is not finite--giving love to someone doesn't mean less love for someone else. When her grandfather took in Dash, she felt threatened and strikes out at the interloper.  Now they are meeting as adults.

Characters from the other Last Chance books make appearances but the book stands well on its own.  

I liked the way Dash tried to be to Savannah's son what Savannah's grandfather had been to him--a man who did "guy" things, a man who showed him by actions how a man should act.  Dash is also a recovering alcoholic and now that he has learned to live without drinking, he needs to learn how to live his life away from alcohol.  

I'd like to thank the publisher for making a review copy available via NetGalley.  Grade:  B+.
