Book reviews are subjective. I tend to rate books not according to how “perfect” they are, seem to be, or are said to be in general but rather to how perfect they are to me. Revell provided me with a complimentary copy of this book for an honest review.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

“Promise me you’ll never again say you don’t have any options. Because you do.”
In At Home in Last Chance, Kaitlyn Reed and Steven Braden have some learning to do about staying put when almost everything in them wants to run. Kaitlyn has a relationship to rebuild with the young daughter she once abandoned, and Steven wants to prove to his family that he’s not an irresponsible playboy, despite his local reputation.
This novel is an easy read with a small-town feel and well-developed, believable main characters. I really got the sense of Kaitlyn’s and Steven’s uncertainty about themselves and each other, and the times when they were frustrated or enraged, I felt it. Parts of the book lagged to me, and it seemed that the same, rather straightforward story could’ve been told in fewer words/pages to keep the story interesting throughout, but overall, the book nicely conveys the message that as long as life isn’t over, you can start over.
While At Home in Last Chance can stand alone, it’s the third book in a series, A Place to Call Home.
