I received a copy of Welcome to Last Chance by from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Lainie Davis has never had anyone to count on but herself. Will that change when she finds herself stranded in Last Chance, New Mexico?
The red warning light on her car dashboard drove Lainie Davis to seek help in
the tiny town of Last Chance, New Mexico. But as she encounters the people who
make Last Chance their home, it's her heart that is flashing bright red warning
lights. These people are entirely too nice, too accommodating, and too
interested in her personal life for Lainie's comfort--especially since she's on
the run and hoping to slip away unnoticed.
Yet in spite of herself,
Lainie finds that she is increasingly drawn in to the dramas of small town life.
An old church lady who always has room for a stranger. A handsome bartender with
a secret life. A single mom running her diner and worrying over her teenage son.
Could Lainie actually make a life in this little hick town? Or will the past
catch up to her even here in the middle of nowhere?
Lainie has been on her own since she was 14 and she seems to have done a fair job so far. What she doesn't know she's missing welcomes her in Last Chance. She doesn't know how to ask for help or rely on anyone else. The longer she stays in Last Chance the more love she feels and the more she likes it. Each time she has the chance to get really close to anyone she turns tail and runs. I don't think she realizes this until Steven comes home and Lainie sees herself in him. Lainie has several chances to see how everyone in town takes care of everyone else no matter if they're related or not. She finds it hard to leave when she knows Nick is after her. I rally liked this book because it showed how when you let go you can grow with the help of everyone around you.
