Book Review: “Last Chance Hero” ~ Christian fiction by Cathleen Armstrong

I’ll admit it, I read at the breakfast table. As I was eagerly moving toward the end of this book, I found myself tearing up (aka weeping) upon reading one of Armstrong’s scenes. I don’t want to say too much, so as to spoil this for the next reader, but it was about Andy’s recovering alcoholic father.

Beside all that, Armstrong delivers another nuanced, detailed, realistic, charming, lighthearted, believable romance. Jess, the new doctor in the small town of Last Chance, New Mexico, and Andy, a washed-up NFL player who is now a high school coach, light up the night with their story.

It’s hard to put my finger on Armstrong’s “magic”, but she has an excellent way with a story.

In Last Chance Hero, there’s a restaurant that serves New Mexican cuisine. If you’ve had it, please leave a comment.
