I look forward to each visit when it comes to delving into the world of Last Chance. The author has created a cozy Southern Small Town where the people have their quirks, traditions, and a place where people really can get their chance at happiness.
This latest installment is a Christmas short story between the town’s new doctor, Tom Crawford, and the florist, Teri Summers. Tom’s from Boston and struggling with Southern mistrust, his first Christmas away from family, and seeing where his future will lead. Teri is a divorced woman caring for her son and trying to help Aidan navigate the world that is tough on a kid with Asperger’s who doesn’t like Christmas.
Tom is very taken with Teri and with Aidan, but he has the hard task of convincing Teri to open up and let him in and believe that he can handle all of her and Aidan. Aidan is looking forward to seeing an angel for Christmas and his quest might bring something wonderful for others, too.
The story is short, tender, and full of heart. I enjoyed all three of the main characters, Tom, Teri, and Aidan, and the fun of spending Christmas with the folks of Last Chance. Like any good Christmas romance it’s all about believing- Aidan in his angels, Teri in another’s acceptance, and Tom in taking another chance on Teri. It was short, but still gives a complete story with a happy for now resolve.
Contemporary Small Town Romance fans would enjoy this holiday snippet. The story can be read as a standalone and is a nice intro to the series.
I received this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.
Romance Roundabout #392 CR
This was a heartwarming story set in a small town. It reminded me of my enjoyment of watching Christmas movies on the Hallmark and Disney Channels. I love the warm fuzzies I get from the movies. And then there are the quintessential must-watch Christmas movie list- every year favorites. I shared A Christmas Card with our readers last year, but I thought I would share some more. I could honestly list a few pages worth because I love Christmas and Holiday movies, but I gritted it out and narrowed it down.
Here’s a Top Five:
- A Charlie Brown Christmas
- National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
- Irving Berlin’s White Christmas
- It’s A Wonderful Life
- Holiday in Handcuffs
