Who knew you had to know football to practice medicine in Last Chance?

Last Chance Hero


It’s not that Dr. Jessica MacLeod hates football; it’s just that she’s never in her life seen a game–or wanted to. But that doesn’t fly in Last Chance, where football is king and where the best athlete Last Chance High ever produced has come home to coach the team.

    What a beautiful cover! It takes me back to my high school day. Cool temps., bright lights and the much anticipated first football game. I loved this story. It’s a very sweet romance with complex characters you fall in love with.

    Just finished the series. I thought #4 was it, but the book didn’t tie up the loose ends, so I’m hoping there will be #5!

    What is the name of book number 4?? I’m trying to find it.

      Book 4 is Last Chance Hero. It’s available both in Ebook and paperback. Hope you enjoy it!

    Hello dear lady. I so appreciate your imagination and talent to write it down for us to enjoy.
    I’ve finished the four Last Chance books (A Place to Call Home series). All nicely done; each with a little something I didn’t see coming. But wait…isn’t there more?
    Will Andy and Jess be more? Will there be more babies with the marriages? How long can we keep Gran? What’s up with the Anderson family? Will Gabe go to college? Will he come back to Last Chance or even to San Ramon as a doctor? Will Zach make it to Arizona to college? What career path will he take?
    Am I missing something…who was the dark haired man who walked into the game with Gabe? Oh, dear lady, you’re not done writing yet are you?

    Just finished book #4 Last Chance Hero. And I, like the others here, was left wanting more. Too many loose ends and questions that need answering. I love your writing and living in NM myself I can relate to the small town feel and all of the chile references. 🙂 I am anxiously waiting for book #5 release – I hope there is one coming. There is so much more left to the story. Don’t leave your fans hanging!!

    I’m ready for your next book. There are so many things left unanswered! I’ve really enjoyed your series

    I agree with many of the others. Have really loved the books and am waiting for 5, and maybe 6?

    I loved this series! I am agreeing with the others…I just finished #4 and would love to see another one.

    I found the first book and bought it to fill an empty spot on my bookshelf and only picked it up because I needed something to read on breaks at work. I now have all four books and have read them all! I can relate to how some of the main characters feel like outsiders trying to find a way to fit in and be accepted. Elizabeth reminds me of my biological grandmothers with her old school “everyone is welcome in my home” ways and her love and relationship with Jesus. I sooo wish there were more books!

    Dear Cathleen–I loved every single book in your Last Chance series, and, like many of your other fans, would like to read more about Last Chance and the folks who live there! Your stories and characters become a part of our lives, and we want more! And … thank you for the special Halloween Last Chance short story you just posted on your website tonight!
