Still healing from a divorce and determined to keep her rebellious 12-year-old son, Todd, out of her elitist ex-mother-in-law's control, Savannah White leaves Baltimore and heads for her childhood summer sanctuary, Last Chance, SC, to stay with her recently widowed great-aunt and—maybe—restore the decrepit town movie theater she inherited. The last thing she needs is Dash Randall, former baseball pro, recovering alcoholic, and her childhood nemesis, interfering in her life or her son's. But Dash has changed, and as Savannah begins to appreciate the man he has become, the barriers between them start to fall with romantic results that neither sees coming. Pompous Biblical quotes and references to Pride and Prejudice add to the overall fun.
VERDICT The ladies of the Last Chance Book Club keep the gossip flowing in this story graced with abundant Southern charm and quirky, caring people. Another welcome chapter to Ramsay's engaging, funny, hope-filled series. The discussion questions included will make this an appealing book club choice, as well. Ramsay (Last Chance Christmas) lives in Fairfax, VA.
