Gracious me, my beautiful daughter Rocky sure could use my help. I always knew she wasn't much interested in the local boys - but who'd have thought she'd come home with English royalty?
Trouble is, Hugh wants to buy some of our folks' land. We don't want to sell, but Rocky's job depends on her closing the deal. And though Hugh's obviously smitten, I'm not sure he's right for my Rocky. Oh, he's classy and handsome - and you should've seen the way he judged pies and fixed stock cars at our Watermelon Festival! - but what do we know about him, really? I know I sound like a nervous mother hen, but after forty happy years with my Elbert, all I want is to see my little girl find the same.
Well, time for me to quit chattering and get back to Miss Bray's wet set. Always nice talking to you, and remember: the Cut 'n Curl's got hot rollers, free coffee, and the best gossip in town.
See you real soon,
The Last Chance Beauty Queen is the third book about Last Chance. In full disclosure I had not heard of this series before, so I started with book three. I would have never known this book wasn't a stand alone romantic tale. There was no expectation of my knowing characters or story lines. I love books that I can enjoy together so I fully plan to read both of the other books about Last Chance, after all I fell in love with the characters and the great little town they live in!
The story line of the book is a solid one, with a little bit of mystery, a little bit of romance and a good deal of "hum I wonder"... I love that bit of makes you think in a romance. I will solidly admit there were times in the book that I questioned who the lead would really end up with. Not many romances can trick me in that way. I would have to say that the author did a great job of that! I know I can't wait to grab the other 2 books and read more from this author!
