Book Description

 Mike Taggart has always been willing to take a gamble. But these stakes are just way too high - there's no way he's prepared to become a legal guardian to his five-year-old niece. His only option is to head from Las Vegas to Last Chance to sort things out as quickly as possible. Problem is, he arrives to find an inconsolable little girl, her sick cat, and a gorgeous veterinarian he can't get out of his mind.

Charlene Polk has two talents: healing sick critters and falling in love with the wrong men. Mike has trouble written all over him, but she can't leave him in the lurch. And the more time she spends with the sexy high roller, the more she sees that this ready-made family is the best stroke of luck they've ever had . . .

About the Author

 Hope Ramsay was born in New York and grew up on the North Shore of Long Island, but every summer Momma would pack her off under the care of Aunt Annie to go visiting with relatives in the midlands of South Carolina. Her extended family includes its share of colorful aunts and uncles, as well as cousins by the dozens, who provide the fodder for the characters you’ll find in Last Chance, South Carolina. Hope earned a BA in Political Science from the University of Buffalo, and has had various jobs working as a Congressional aide, a lobbyist, a public relations consultant, and a meeting planner. She’s a two-time finalist in the Golden Heart, and is married to a good ol’ Georgia boy who resembles every single one of her heroes. She has two grown children and a couple of demanding lap cats. She lives in Fairfax, Virginia where you can often find her on the back deck, picking on her thirty-five-year-old Martin guitar.

My Review

Last Chance, South Carolina is a fascinating place filled with interesting characters. I felt that Last Chance was missing a bit of the magic in this latest book in the series. Last Chance Family features the love story between veterinarian Charlene Polk and Mike Taggart, the mysterious gambler brother of the Methodist minister.

The love story between Charlene and Mike in Last Chance Family is compelling though predictable and does keep you interested. This is a good love story, but I wanted more Last Chance. We did not get to visit with as many of the former featured characters as I would have liked. The title is perfect for the story...Last Chance the story revolves around Mike and his niece Rainbow who just lost her mother. And it is about cats and how they can fill your life with joy. And be mysterious....

The Last Chance series is definitely a good romance series. I enjoyed the romance in Last Chance Family. I enjoyed the cats and the people featured. But there was no Golfing for God. Didn't know I would miss it.
