It is funny how you can relate to a character in one book and not relate to the same character in another book. This is one of those cases. I really enjoyed this book, but when I went back and read my review of the previous book in this story, I didn't click with some of the same characters. Too funny. I really liked Kaitlyn and I cried when she cried and laughed when she laughed. I found her very likable and relatable. Steven exasperated me, he was trying too hard but once he got it figured out, he was a favorite for me. I loved Speed Bump. *smile* Favorite character, of course is Elizabeth the feisty grandma. A great story that gets 4.5 stars from this reviewer.

About the book and Author:
Kaitlyn Reed and Steven Braden have always had a similar philosophy of life: when the going gets tough, they get going--out of town and away from the problem. Now they are both back in Last Chance, New Mexico, and trying to start over.
Kaitlyn is working to reestablish a relationship with the seven-year-old daughter she left behind six months earlier. Steven is trying to prove to his family that he is not the irresponsible charmer they have always known him to be. As Kaitlyn and Steven find themselves drawn to one another, one big question keeps getting in the way: How will they learn to trust each other when they don't even trust themselves?
With emotional depth and characters who leap off the page and into your heart, Cathleen Armstrong invites you to return once more to the dusty and delightful town of Last Chance.
Cathleen Armstrong lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband, Ed, and their corgi. Though she has been in California for many years now, her roots remain deep in New Mexico where she grew up and where much of her family still lives. She is the author of Welcome to Last Chance, winner of the 2009 American Christian Fiction Writers Genesis Award for Women's Fiction, and One More Last Chance.
