Kathi Macias’s Last Chance for Justice

About

Welcome to Bloomfield, where life is simple, love is real, and stories are shared.

Lynn Myers is still reeling from losing her husband of thirty-five years when word comes that her only sibling, an older brother, has also died. With no one else to settle the estate, she must return to her small hometown of Bloomfield, however briefly, to settle his affairs.
Lynn’s daughter, Rachel, has just graduated from Bible college and with no other commitments comes along to sort through her uncle’s huge old home, right next to the local cemetery.
It isn’t long before Rachel has two men — a handsome CPA and the youth pastor — seriously vying for her attention. At the same time, Lynn’s attention is drawn to a set of journals her brother has left behind detailing a long-standing Bloomfield mystery.
As they pursue solving this mystery, Rachel must make some personal decisions about her future, while Lynn is forced to face unexpected issues from her own past.

Review

This was the first time I had ever read a book by Ms. Macias and I found that I was in for a treat! I found her writing to be engaging and page-turning. Not to mention, I loved the way the mystery around Last Chance slowly unraveled though I will say, when I found out all the facts it was a bit anti-climatic. Lynn and Rachel came across as two very realistic women. I didn’t find any fault with their characters and enjoyed reading from both of their points of views (though Lynn’s reaction to Bloomfield seemed a bit unusual). The romance in the story was a bit more obvious that I would have liked, but I appreciated the hero and found him to be endearing. Spiritually, I loved how Rachel and Lynn both practiced praying before they made a decision and how God was always part of everything they did. The novel wasn’t intense, but it was fascinating and I wouldn’t mind picking up another novel by this author and reading it.

**I received this novel from Netgalley. My opinion was not influenced in anyway.**
