Welcome to Last Chance by Cathleen Armstrong is the debut novel from this new author. I had a hard time finishing it. I was hooked until about halfway through the book. I put it down and had a hard time getting back into it, I will admit I skimmed through the last half just to see how it ended. The main character was not real to me, she never formed into a person into my mind. I'm not sure why, I just couldn't connect with her.
From the back cover:
The red warning light on her car dashboard may have driven Lainie Davis to seek help in the tiny town of Last Chance, New Mexico, but as she meets the people who make this one-horse town their home, it's her heart that is flashing bright red warning lights. These people are entirely too nice, and too interested in her personal life--especially since she's on the run and hoping to slip away unnoticed.
Yet in spite of herself, Lainie is increasingly drawn into the small-town dramas and to a handsome local guy with a secret of his own. Could Lainie actually make a life in this little town? Or will the past catch up to her even here in the middle of nowhere?
