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. But a new start requires forgiveness from old wrongs, and how can they seek forgiveness from others when they can't forgive themselves?
What happens when the life you’re running from won’t let go of your heart?
Kaitlyn Reed and Steven Braden have never thought much about responsibilities, or consequences, or even people who might be counting on them. If they didn’t like the way life was unfolding, they just took off, and let someone else pick up the pieces. But that long, open road has a way of circling back, and now they are both at home in Last Chance, wondering if there is one more chance for them.
Kaitlyn wants more than anything to reestablish a relationship with the daughter she left behind six months earlier, but seven-year-old Olivia is in no hurry to let her mother back in her life. And Chris, the older brother who took them both in, still treats her like the wayward little sister she has always been.
Steven is trying to prove to his family that he is not the irresponsible charmer they have always known him to be. But that’s not proving easy, as “Steven is just Steven” has long been the prevailing viewpoint of not only his family, but the whole town.
Kaitlyn and Steven find themselves drawn to one another, despite the misgivings and warnings of the fine folk of Last Chance. And as their relationship unfolds, they learn to understand, trust, and forgive—first each other, and finally 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.
