Hilarious, absurd, and impossible to put down!
Thank you, author Mark Time, for recommending this selection.
At Home in Last Chance (A Place to Call Home #3) by Cathleen Armstrong
Rating: * * * *
I love this book!
Kaitlyn has made her mistakes, but if you think you get to rub her nose in ’em, you got another think comin’. And then there’s feckless Steven, with a definite penchant for putting his foot in his mouth. I tut-tutted right along with Steven’s grandmother, watching Kaitlyn and Steven bump their way past the misunderstandings and ruffled feathers to a very satisfying ending.
I will definitely be adding this book to my collection. If you like this book, you may also enjoy The First Boy I Loved by Cheryl Reavis.

The Godforsaken Daughter by Christina McKenna
March 2015, Lake Union Publishing
Rating: * *
Nicely stitched together. Quite an unusual set of circumstances leads to the intersection between Ruby, Jamie, and Henry in a little town in Northern Ireland.
The incidental characters like the attorney who reads the will are so neatly drawn I can see them clearly in my minds eye.
The main characters have victim written all over them, which is the reason I rate the book 2 stars. The sundry side characters, however, are enormously entertaining and prevent the story from sliding into melancholy. Were they the main characters, I’d rate this 4 stars.
