Last Chance Summer: A Short Story by Hope Ramsay was a cute story about Amanda Wright who is a war widow living in the small town of Last Chance, South Carolina. Amanda is a teacher and mother to a 4-1/2 year old son, Ethan. She also lives with her Grandmother who is beginning to suffer the early signs of dementia. Together they attend the town’s Watermelon Festival, and there after a series of unexpected events, they meet the town’s new radio DJ, Grant Trumbull. Grant has recently left the big city in search of a simpler, less hectic lifestyle.
My only complaint with this story was that it wasn’t longer. I enjoy stories about small town life and the various characters who inhabit small towns. Just when the story was getting going and the characters were being developed, the story was done. I understand from a search of Amazon that there are other full length novels by this author in the Last Chance series. Those novels might be worth a look.
