Sarah Cooley has come home to Last Chance, New Mexico, for one reason–because it doesn’t change. After an engagement gone bad with a man who wanted to change everything about her, Sarah is more than ready for the town whose motto may as well be, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
Chris Reed, on the other hand, wants nothing more than to spark some change in the little town. As the new owner of the Dip ‘n’ Dine, he’s shaking things up to draw folks from all over the Southwest into his restaurant.
As it turns out, the winds of change are blowing into Last Chance–just not in the ways that Sarah or Chris might expect.
With the same evocative writing and fascinating characters that won fans for her debut novel, Cathleen Armstrong invites readers back to Last Chance for a soul-searching, romantic story of two people navigating the twists and turns of small-town life.

My take on this book:
One More Last Chance is a light romantic read that has the small town feel that where it seems nothing ever changes, or that's what Sarah Cooley thinks. Chris Reed has just purchased the Dip n Dine Restaurant and plans on stirring things up a bit, little does Chris and Sarah realize just what sort of change might be coming to Last Chance.

I loved the characters and setting of this novel, a delightful read that I would almost label as feel good because it put a smile on my face more than a few times. While the characters have issues in their lives, it was the growth and change that  kept me reading to see how the story would wind up. Wonderful characters and a small town setting made this book a winner for me, and while I didn't read the first book in the series I had no problems diving right into this one, and enjoyed this story and characters so much that I plan on going back and reading the first book. 

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review.
