Description:

Dear Reader,

Yes, our town is way off the beaten path, but strange, wonderful miracles happen a lot around here.

I've owned the Cut 'n' Curl beauty shop for years, and I've seen folks come for a visit, then stay for a lifetime. Take Jane-that pretty firecracker of a girl who just arrived in town. I would swear she's running from something. She came with only five dollars in her pocket but she's worked real hard to make a fresh start. She's turned my son Clay's life upside down without even realizing it. 

And thank goodness for that! Ever since Clay left his country western band, he's played everything too safe. He needs to take a chance on Jane. Besides, the more he tries to keep his distance, the more he'll realize that he and Jane are singing the same tune.

But I should quit ramblin' and go check on Millie's permanent wave. Next time you're in Last Chance, be sure to swing by. We've got hot rollers, free coffee, and the best gossip in town.

See you real soon,

Ruby Rhodes

My Thoughts:

This is part of the Last Chance series.  In this one we meet Wanda Jane who goes by Jane and has been running since she was a teenager.  She ends up in Last Chance with 5.00 to her name and a love of singing in her heart.  The last thing she is looking for is love.  When she winds up at a shady hotel with a mysterious guy she is hoping to move on from there.  Will Last Chance help her or is she beyond help?

Clay Rhodes left Last Chance for Nashville but when relationships with Nashville fall apart he goes back home to find out where his life will lead.  The last thing he counted on was this girl who makes him feel like a teenager again.  Of course he never counted on two of his ex's showing up in Last Chance hoping to be rescued by Clay.

As this book moves on you can see the problems both Clay and Jane need to get passed in order to move forward in life.  In Jane's case she has a lot more to over come trouble seems to follow her everywhere.  In Clay's case he needs to move past being the dumped guy or the guy who remains their friend. 

This book was great with the small town appeal added to the relationships formed and bonded and watching as Clay and Jane figure out what they want in life.  I felt so drawn to this couple and couldn't put it down until the end came.  I really love everyone Ruby included she does such a great job of rallying people together.
