Overview
Kaitlyn Reed and Steven Braden have always had a similar philosophy of life: when the going gets tough, they get going--out of town and away from the problem. Now they are both back in Last Chance, New Mexico, and trying to start over. Kaitlyn is working to reestablish a relationship with the seven-year-old daughter she left behind six months earlier. Steven is trying to prove to his family that he is not the irresponsible charmer they have always known him to be. As Kaitlyn and Steven find themselves drawn to one another, one big question keeps getting in the way: How will they learn to trust each other when they don't even trust themselves?

Reviews - What do customers think about At Home In Last Chance (Place To Call Home V3)?

At Home in Last Chance  Apr 2, 2015
3.5 stars

Single mother Kaitlyn left her daughter Olivia in the custody of her brother six months ago and left Last Chance and her daughter behind to run off with a guy on a motorcycle. Now, after realizing the mistakes she’s made, she has returned to Last Chance wanting to start over. But starting over is hard to do when everyone is judging her for her mistakes and her own daughter has a hard time trusting her because she thinks her mom is just going to leave her again.

Steven is seen as the irresponsible black sheep member of his family. He’s used to using his charm to get everything he wants. After being away from home for awhile he is now back in Last Chance trying to prove that he is not the irresponsible charmer he’s been in the past.

Can the people of Last Chance forgive and look past the mistakes of Kaitlyn’s and Steven’s pasts to see them for the people they have become?

I liked "At Home in Last Chance". Even though it’s the third book in the A Place to Call Home series, I had no problem following it. The story could be both funny and sad at times.

The author did a good job with the small town setting, making me feel like I was in the small town of Last Chance. I liked how each of the characters had their own unique personalities. Kaitlyn’s daughter Olivia was cute and I thought it was funny when she gave some people glares sometimes, even if it wasn’t respectful. I really liked Elizabeth’s character as well. She was a sweet, loving woman who didn’t hold Kaitlyn’s past against her.

I did not care for Steven’s character in the first part of the book. He was conceited and cocky, thinking he could get anything he wanted with his charm, including any woman he wanted (in this case, that would be Kaitlyn). He just really annoyed me for the first part of the book, although he did grow on me in the second half.

I also though the faith content was lacking. There are very few mentions of any of the characters’ faith in the story. Some of the characters did go to church, but I don’t think Steven ever went for the right reasons. The only reason he started going to church again after not going for years was to see Kaitlyn.

Still, "At Home in Last Chance" was an easy read and a heartwarming story. I would like to read the first two books in the series to find out more about the characters of Last Chance.

*I received this book for free from Revell in exchange for my honest review.
 
Review from Rambles of a SAHM  Feb 20, 2015
If you've been reading this series you know that Kaitlyn Reed is a mess. In the last book, One More Last Chance, she abandoned her daughter at her brother's house and rode off into the sunset with her current love interest. Only to be abandoned herself by said lover. She not only had to call her brother to rescue her but she had no choice but to return to Last Chance with him.

Like most small towns Last Chance residents tend to know everyone's business. That business includes Kaitlyn's story. So how does one go about repairing the damage they've caused in such a tight-knit place? Kaitlyn soon realizes that it takes time and perseverance.

She decides one of the first steps is to swear off of men. But then the handsome Steven Braden crosses her path. He's also a mess of his own making. According to everyone that has an opinion these two should stay clear of each other. But sometimes contrary to popular opinion God begins to do a work in the most unlikely places.

This is a great story of restoration and healing, not only from the community but from Kaitlyn and Steven themselves. Because sometimes the hardest person to forgive is yourself.

I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
 
A Feel Good, Hometown Romance  Feb 2, 2015
"Never underestimate what the Lord can do, honey. He can take the biggest mess you ever saw and make something so beautiful it can take your breath away." -Elizabeth Cooley

What makes a book or series stand out from the others? For me, I know I have found a great book when it draws me in to the point of feeling like I am a part of the lives of the characters involved in the story. When I feel like I have come home. At Home in Last Chance is that kind of book. It has a simple hometown feel with characters you grow to love and want to read about again and again and that makes for a great series.

At Home in a Last Chance, the third book in the series, is about Kaitlyn Reed and Steven Braden. We first met Kaitlyn in book two as Chris Reed's sister, the mishap misfit with a seven-year-old daughter named Olivia that she left on her brother's doorstep shortly before taking off to parts unknown. Well, Kaitlyn Reed is back! The sometimes wild, hard-to-handle and often unloved young lady is finally finding her place and it's smack dab in the middle of Last Chance!

The one person that is helping her do that is Steven Braden, the town's failure and the Cooley family's outsider. Steven has a habit of running when things get tough and no one ever lets him forget it. Past choices have given him a name in Last Chance that he can't seem to shake and leaving is his only option--until he meets the infamous Kaitlyn Reed, the only person with a past shakier than his own but the one person that truly understands how he feels and what he is going through.

When the two misfits come together it makes for a beautiful and sweet story that will leave you smiling. I know I was! Kaitlyn's character goes through a slow, but major, character development and I loved seeing the change take place. She started out as a wild and spoiled girl and made a smooth transition into a devoted mother of one of the sweetest little girls ever. Steven Braden is Sarah Cooley's cousin. Sarah was one of the main characters in book two. Even though Steven and Sarah are cousins and are a part of the same family, Steven has always been brushed aside when it comes to important family issues. I love that he finally started standing his ground. It bothered me to no end when his aunt Nancy Jo would exclude him so easily and I was silently rooting him on.

Now, I generally find that in every book I read that at least one character worms it's way into my heart and takes root. This book, series really, was not exception. Sometimes it's the secondary characters that catch your eye and this is exactly the way it was for me with this book. Elizabeth Cooley is Steven Braden's grandmother and the patriarch of the Cooley family. She is a real treasure. She is lovable, endearing and wise. She always has the perfect advice for any given situation and everyone turns to her when they need a listening ear. I truly loved her and am so glad I got to spend time with her.

I have to say that Cathleen Armstrong really hit a home run with this series. It's a sweet and satisfying read that I would recommend to everyone. If you like a cozy hometown feeling and amazing characters that stay with you you'll really love this book and entire series!

An easy, inspiring, charming story of love.  Jan 27, 2015
…When Kaitlyn found herself alone and penniless and beginning to understand what a world-class idiot she had been, Chris, without a word of recrimination, brought her home and took her in (page 9)

At Home in Last Chance, by Cathleen Armstrong, is a story of creating new beginnings and learning to trust others as well as yourself.

I wish I’d realized this is book 3 in a series. Even though this works as a standalone, I feel as if I’ve missed some of the history of this book that would’ve made it even more enjoyable. With that said, I still enjoyed this story and felt a connection with the characters and charming town of Last Chance.

Kaitlyn Reed is struggling to put her life back in order, making it difficult to have faith in others, which gives her relationship with Steven Braden the tension needed to keep me turning pages. I like that their relationship takes some time. This makes the characters and plot believable.

With themes of hope, redemption, and learning to trust, At Home in Last Chance gives the reader an easy, inspiring, charming story of love.

4 Stars

First Line: Pure and simple, Kaitlyn Reed hated her job.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through Revell. I was not required to write a positive review. The options I have expressed are my own.
 
I Enjoyed This Addition to the Series.  Jan 27, 2015
At Home in Last Chance is book three in the A Place to Call Home series. It was so good to get back to this small town in New Mexico and catch up with the residents from past books. If you have not read the other books in the series, don’t worry, this book can stand alone.

What I really enjoyed, having read the other two books, is seeing things from Kaitlyn Reed’s and Steven Braden’s perspectives. It was amusing to watch a scene play out and view either Kaitlyn or Steven’s frustration with the way their extended family treats them. Having read the other two books, I knew that the family members reacted to them in the manner they did because of the way both of these characters had behaved in the past. This book did a great job of showing how people can change.

I honestly did not like either of these two characters when they showed up in small roles in the previous books. They had some pretty big character flaws. However, the author really did a good job of writing a story where they both grew up and became much more responsible. I ended up changing my opinions about both Kaitlyn and Steven by about halfway through the story. Along with the character growth of these two people, we see that it takes awhile for their close family to truly believe that they have changed their ways. While it may be frustrating, that is very truthful writing.

The one thing that I would have really liked to have seen in this book is an epilogue. I do not want to spoil anything about the story, so I will not put details. However, an epilogue would have made the story feel a little more neatly tied up in the end for me. But, this was still a very enjoyable book.

I would like to express my thanks to Revell for the complimentary copy I received in exchange for an honest review.
 
A Nice Read  Jan 26, 2015
What I liked about this book was how you could see God slowly revealing His plan for Kaitlyn and Steven. You could see how things could work out if dreams were pursued, challenges accepted.

Also like Kaitlyn's story, kind of the prodigal daughter. Cathleen did a great job of writing about how a small town would react and treat someone like Kaitlyn. She's different, doesn't fit into the mold of what a typical small town girl should be.

It took me a bit longer to connect with Steven, but I eventually did and liked him and could see the goodness in him.

This was not a fast-paced read, which does go with the small town feel. I didn't feel much urgency to get back to the book and see what was happening with characters, although I did want to get to the end to see how everything would work out.

I struggled a bit with the fact that when we were in Kaitlyn's POV she referred to them with their full names, not as Mom and Dad, as most of us would in our heads when thinking about our parents. But that is simply a stylistic thing for me for that did distract me but might not bother others.

Overall, a nice read that will pull on a mom's heart-strings as Kaitlyn wants to do the right thing, for once. This book can be read as a stand-alone.

Forgiving the Past  Jan 21, 2015
“Leaving you anywhere, even a good place like Uncle Chris’s, was a very bad thing thing to do. I should never, never, never have left you anywhere. Do you hear me? You are my own Olivia, and we belong together, no matter what,” Kaitlyn explains in Cathleen Armstrong’s novel, "At Home in Last Chance."

Third in A Place to Call Home series, this three hundred and five page paperback targets those who enjoy Christian contemporary romance. Containing a few slang words, the writing mentions having a child out of wedlock so may not be appropriate for immature readers. This reader wishes all pronouns of God were capitalized for reverence. The story ends with acknowledgments, the author’s biography, and advertisements for prior books in the series.

Having grown up in New Mexico and now living in California, author Armstrong has won awards for the previous two novels based in a small town in New Mexico.

In this tale, Kaitlyn Reed does not think much of herself, feeling she is a total failure at twenty-three years old. When she dropped off her young girl, Olivia, at her brother’s house in a remote New Mexico area, she high-tailed it on the back of a motorcycle for an adventure in the city. Broke both financially and emotionally, she returns to the tumbleweed town, yearning to capture the love of her now seven-year-old daughter.

Learning that knows everyone’s secrets, Kaitlyn has heard how Steve Braden is a playboy, flirting and hurting hearts he leaves behind. Needing to stay to take care of his grandmother, he wishes he could escape the past, knowing it is only months until he leaves for training at the police academy.

Kaitlyn tries arduously to be a good mother, although her brother has custody of Olivia. Desperately attempting to do her best, she is not at all like her perfect sibling who can do no wrong in their parents’ eyes. Hating her job at the café owned by her brother, she detests being told what to do and when, seeking a better life.

When Kaitlyn and Steve meet, the primary connection is her daughter and his grandmother. Thinking they are opposites, the two confused individuals’ backgrounds define their personal relationship issues.

With an anti-climactic ending, there is plenty of options for another book in the series to find out if Kaitlyn and Steve’s bond can test their need to accept themselves and others.

Thanks to Baker Publishing for furnishing this complimentary book in exchange for a review based on the reader’s honest opinion.

Great Book  Jan 20, 2015
Kaitlyn Reed and Steve Braden are both the black sheep of the family. When things get tough they tend to tuck tail and run the other way. Kaitlyn is trying to make amends with her daughter she abandoned and her brother who was left with all the responsibility. She working a job she hates in order to stay close and be with her daughter. And become the mother she deserves. Steve left his brother holding the bag years ago and is still trying to make amends to his family. They have been warned by all around to stay away from each other but seem to be drawn to each other. All activity centers around family as mom and grandmother Elizabeth brings the family together. She was one of my favorite minor characters, reminding me of my own grandmother, spunky, faith filled and a true delight to all those around her.

This was the sweetest little book, reminded me of the true meaning of family. If truth be told I found it to be refreshing. The characters are well developed and realistic. In fact they remind me of the small town I live in. The author Cathleen Armstrong did an outstanding job. At Home in Last Chance is book 2 in the A Place to Call Home series. It can be read as a stand alone or as part of a series. I have not read book 1, Welcome to Last Chance, but I do plan to read it in the near future and look forward to reading book 3.

I want to give a high-five to the author and publisher for bringing compelling Christian books that are entertaining and give hope to the reader with stories of faith. I was provided with this book in exchange for my honest review and I am so grateful for author Cathleen Armstrong and publisher Revell for their generosity.
