Cathleen Armstrong in her new book, “Last Chance Hero book coverLast Chance Hero” Book Four in the A Place To Call Home series published by Revell this time the focus is on Jessica MacLeod and Andy Ryan.

From the back cover:  What happens when your heart is intercepted before you even know it’s in play?

The folks in Last Chance, New Mexico, could not be more pleased. Dr. Jessica MacLeod has opened an office right on Main Street and Andy Ryan, the best athlete the little town ever produced, has come home from the NFL to coach the high school football team. Unfortunately, Dr. Jess immediately gets off on the wrong foot with this football-obsessed town when she admits that she’s never seen a football game, isn’t really interested in doing so, and in fact doesn’t know a first down from a goalpost.

Despite having little in common, Jess and Andy find themselves drawn to each other. But when a disagreement over the future of an injured player puts them both on the defensive, it begins to look like this game is over . . . 

I want to go to New Mexico and live in Last Chance. Alas, it only exists in these wonderful books. I have said it before and I say it again I just like the name of this series, “A Place To Call Home”. And the name of this place is Last Chance, New Mexico. Andy is a former NFL player come home to coach his high school team in a town where football is king. Together they bring to mind cozy, easy places and people because when you are home there is always another chance. Jess is the young new doctor trying to set up a practice in a small town and she has no knowledge of football. And this is where the story takes off. Can these two even get along when it seems as if they have nothing in common? Can they work out their shaky pasts if they are going to have any kind of future? These and more questions have to get resolved with the help of God before the book ends. And then, of course, there is the romance. Jess and Andy are likable and Ms. Armstrong has a way of bringing you into the story and making the characters lives  very real.  I am sorry that this series is ending but I am looking forward to the next series from this very talented author.
