But a funny thing happens during the renovation when Aunt Mim goes into matchmaking mode and tries to match Savannah up with Reverend Bill Ellis. They were going to restore an old theatre that was in the middle of town. I received this book for free from Goodreads First Reads. I loved seeing her tell them off, though there was also some indication that there could be trouble ahead. She joins in with the community and makes her first friends when her childhood pal, Rocky, takes her to the book club meetings.
The ending felt rushed to me with answers to mysterious goings on provided, as well as news regarding a problem with Savannah's ex husband. This was a lovely return to the town of Last Chance, South Carolina. He also realizes, being a few years older now, that his problem with her had been plain old jealousy of having to share his aunt and uncle with her. Savannah is the quintessential beautiful single mom full of love but with a no nonsense attitude. Although I finished reading it, it was tough because I just had I found liking these characters a challenge! But the teenager he remembered has grown into a gorgeous and generous woman, and it isn't long before Dash finds himself wanting to make brand new memories with Savannah. The town embraces Savannah and Todd.
Love Miriam in all the books and this one she had a much larger role as it was her family. Then things started to change and I enjoyed seeing things progress as Savannah and Todd settled into the community and a relationship for both of them with Dash developed. Just like the other books it shares the same heart-warming experience and Miz Miriam still playing matchmaker. A more masculine sight Savannah had not seen in many years. Can't wait for the next adventure.
I have been enjoying this heartwarming series by Hope Ramsay. It was a perfect ending to a very sweet book. Things in it are so cute like the main characters aunt and the book club it is written so that you can visualize everything that is happening. And the cute kid, and a dog. Her ex mother in law is like a nightmare and her mother doesn't seem too swift either.
Divorce and fed up with everyone else. So she packed up and was ready to leave the next morning. I really liked that the author eventually let Savannah and Dash figure out how similar they've always been even when they were always fighting as children and thought the comparison between lots of drama in the novel to Pride and Prejudice which Savannah was reading in the book club humorous and appropriate. Savannah really wanted to get herself and her son out of Baltimore, so when her uncle died she and Todd left to go to his funeral. Savannah's ex husband Greg is a jerk and he doesn't know what he is missing in his wonderful son Todd. Savannah is furious at him for interfering but is just as mad at herself for her sudden attraction to him.
I am a single mother like Savannah with a 13 year old son very much like Todd. So all in all, it was an enjoyable read and I wouldn't mind going back and catching up on everyone else's stories. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. The books that we have will boost your interest in reading. Really, this book had everything I absolutely adore in a romance novel. She's even invited to join the local book club, where talk soon turns to Savannah's plan to bring the ramshackle downtown movie theater back to life. I wished I lived in Last Chance - mostly because Dash sounds like a major Texas Hottie! I really felt as though I had taken a trip to Last Chance.
She felt by moving back to where she spent her summers it would be better for her son to grow up. I grew up in the South and I still felt like the main characters were caricatures. Finally, it is made quite clear that there is no actual blood relationship Phew!! Last Chance is just as charming as she remembered. The ending felt rushed to me with answers to mysterious goings on provided, as well as news regarding a problem with Savannah's ex husband. I hope you all take a chance on Last Chance Book Club. I liked Savannah and how determined she was to raise her son right and restore the town theater her grandfather had left in her possession. Growing up she remember her summers in Last Chance and figure it would be a great place to raise her son.
However, most of her memories revolve around the periods she spent in the Midlands of South Carolina. Because she's the town matchmaker. I loved seeing Dash be semi-parental, but he also showed his fun and empathetic side. Last Chance is a small town where everyone knows everyone. A new challenge is just what Savannah needs to move forward. Besides the confusion we also got a more up close look at Savannah's mom and ex-in-law who showed up unexpectedly. LibraryThing Review User Review - penelopemarzec - LibraryThing Very entertaining! Hope remembers the term paper because it gave her such a rush to write it.
She's even invited to join the local book club, where talk soon turns to Savannah's plan to bring the ramshackle downtown movie theater back to life. Savannah coming back reminds him of what he was yet the possibility of something that could be is even more exciting. Dash and Savannah shared relatives but no blood and lots of time as children tormenting each other to distraction. And once she finished it, she put it away and the typewriter on which she had done her writing. A new challenge is just what Savannah needs to move forward. I loved seeing him let go of his obsession with Hettie and pursue his attraction to Savannah.
Dash becomes just the role model and father figure that Todd needs. Finally, one minor word of caution, I had read the previous books in the series and even so I occasionally got confused about who was who; it might work as a stand-alone but is probably more fun if you've read the others in the series first. What she didn't tell anyone was that they were going to move there permanently. Overall I liked this book. After her divorce Savannah packs up her son Todd and moves back to Last Chance with her Aunt and Cousin not blood related Dash.
