From Booklist
As the new owner of the Dip 'n' Dine in Last Chance, New Mexico, Chris Reed has big ideas for the caf', but his spicy enhancements are promptly extinguished by locals set in their ways. When his sister leaves her young daughter, Olivia, in his care, Chris must balance the caf''s problems with his niece's struggle with abandonment. Sarah Cooley never wants to feel like anyone's puppet again, and is determined to start a new, independent life in Last Chance. She is unimpressed by Chris, but when she observes his commitment to Olivia, Sarah decides to help by taking the girl under her wing. As Chris seeks Sarah's friendship, mutual feelings blossom between them. Then Sarah's ex-boyfriend arrives asking for a second chance, and she learns that some things, even when you want them to, never change. Armstrong continues her A Place to Call Home series with this sweet romance that features vivid descriptions of the Southwestern landscape, colorful supporting characters, and engaging relationships subtly shaped by Christian faith. --Kate Campos

From the Back Cover
Some things never change . . . and some things change you forever.

Sarah Cooley has come home to Last Chance, New Mexico, for one reason--because it doesn't change. After a relationship gone bad with a man who wanted to change everything about her, Sarah is more than ready for the town whose motto may as well be, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

Chris Reed, on the other hand, wants nothing more than to spark some change in the little town. As the new owner of the Dip 'n' Dine, he's shaking things up to draw folks from all over the Southwest into his restaurant.

As it turns out, the winds of change are blowing into Last Chance--just not in the ways that Sarah or Chris might expect.

With the same evocative writing and charming characters that won fans for her debut novel, Cathleen Armstrong invites you back to Last Chance for a heartwarming, romantic story of two people navigating the twists and turns of life in a small town.
