Review of Last Chance for Justice by Kathi Macias

Review of Last Chance for Justice

by Kathi Macias

Last Chance for Justice

Welcome to Bloomfield, where life is simple, love is real, and stories are shared.

Lynn Myers is still reeling from losing her husband of thirty-five years when word comes that her only sibling, an older brother, has also died. With no one else to settle the estate, she must return to her small hometown of Bloomfield, however briefly, to settle his affairs.


Lynn’s daughter, Rachel, has just graduated from Bible college and with no other commitments comes along to sort through her uncle’s huge old home, right next to the local cemetery.


It isn't long before Rachel has two men -- a handsome CPA and the youth pastor -- seriously vying for her attention. At the same time, Lynn's attention is drawn to a set of journals her brother has left behind detailing a long-standing Bloomfield mystery.


As they pursue solving this mystery, Rachel must make some personal decisions about her future, while Lynn is forced to face unexpected issues from her own past.
My Review:
Kathi Macias has touched my heart with this book.  I could relate to Lynn, even though I experienced grief due to divorce, while she was widowed.   I also loved the relationship between Lynn and Rachel.  I have three daughters and they are so precious to me.  I value time with them just as Lynn does with Rachel.   Rachel is seeking God's will for her life after graduating from Bible College.  I also attended wives' courses at seminary while my husband attended there.  Lynn has inherited her brother's home, which is right beside a cemetery.  The characters continuously refer to it as "creepy" but I love walking through cemeteries and reading the stories of peoples' lives on the tombstones.   My daughters and I visit them often.  Kathi writes with such incredible detail that I felt like I was a part of the story.   As I read, I kept telling my husband things about the book and I am sure he thought I was "off my rocker".   This story has a delightful mystery as Lynn and Rachel try to solve the mystery of the missing money and Last Chance Justice.   This kept me on my toes, trying to figure out what did happen to that money....money that ruined Last Chance's reputation.  
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.  All opinions expressed are my own.
