This seemed a nice story to grab up as I near the end of my summer reads and I already really enjoy the series of books about the small southern town of Last Chance by Hope Ramsay. This is definitely a short story as the subtitle informs us and it gives a quick sweet, story about a whole new Last Chance Heroine.
A young, stressed widow, Amanda Wright, is taking her four year old son and eighty year old grandmother to the Watermelon Festival. Her grandmother still believes her dead husband is alive and gets upset when she hears the new local radio personality replacing her husband on the radio broadcast at the festival and her son who can only talk of finding grandpa in the radio and riding the ferris wheel. Amanda busily tries to keep both of her charges distracted from their fixations and happy with other things even while hearing the new guy, Grant, interviewing Ms. Miriam and get one of her enigmatic matchmaking pronouncements. Amanda has no plans to learn anything further about Grant or find out if she could be his match, but even she can’t anticipate just how fate will take part in her life.
The story was adorable and I loved it. The characters were the best part for me and I enjoyed the build up to the big moment. The ending left me with my mouth gaping because I wanted a bit more after the build up. A few more pages or an epilogue would have made this even better for me. It was just a little issue and didn’t detract too much from the story for me. I recommend the story for fans of the series and for those who enjoy sweet contemporary romance looking for something short to tide them over or looking for a new small town romance series to try.
My thanks to Net Galley for providing the book for the purpose of an honest review.
