"Last Chance captures the essence of Southern charm and quirkiness. I'm totally captivated!" --- Sherryl Woods, New York Times bestselling author

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

By the time I reached chapter 4, I was fairly certain that I'd never read the word 'big' so many times in one book. A man can't be a man, he has to be a big man, with broad shoulders, and a towering ... Read full review

About the author (2011)

Hope Ramsay grew up in New York but spent her summers in Bamberg County, South Carolina. These summer experiences inspired her series of stories set in the small, ficticious town of Last Chance. After college graduation, Hope made the pilgrimage to Washington, DC, and got a job working for a Congressman. After leaving the Hill, she worked at a variety of non-profit associations where she handled government and press relations. Her husband is a good ol' boy from Georgia, and there is a little bit of him in every one of her heros. When she's not busy writing, she and her husband pass the time sailboat racing on the Bonney Rose.
