Review of "Love Finds You in Last Chance, California"

Review of Love Finds You in Last Chance, California

by Miralee Ferrell


It s 1877 and Alexia Travers is alone in the world. Her father has died unexpectedly, leaving her burdened with a heavily mortgaged horse ranch. Marrying one of the towns all-too-willing bachelors would offer an easy solution, but Alex has no interest in marriage. Instead, she dons men's trousers and rides the range, determined to make the ranch a success on her own. But despite Alex's best efforts, everything seems to go wrong: ranch hands quit, horses are stolen, and her father's gold goes missing. Alex is at her wits' end when wrangler Justin Phillips arrives in Last Chance with his young son, looking for a job. But there seems to be more to Justin's story than he's willing to share. Will Alex ever be able to trust him? More importantly, will the independent woman finally learn to depend on God? 

MY REVIEW:   I've never been to California so reading about Last Chance, California was  quite a treat for me.   I could imagine being there with the beautiful horse ranch spread far and wide before me.   Alex embodies the true Christian spirit in her character and I know that I could learn some lessons from her character.   This is a delightful pleasant read that involves some mystery as well as romance.    I love books that combine the two....mystery and romance go together well in my opinion.   I rate this book 5 stars and highly recommend it to readers. 
I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review.

About the Author:
Miralee Ferrell

Miralee Ferrell and her husband, Allen, live on eleven acres in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge in southern Washington State, where they love to garden, play with their dogs, take walks, and go sailing. She is also able to combine two other passions—horseback riding and spending time with her grown children—since her married daughter lives nearby, and they often ride together on the wooded trails near their home. 

Ironically, Miralee, now the author of eight books, with many more on the way, never had a burning desire to write—at least more than her own memoirs for her children. So she was shocked when God called her to start writing after she turned fifty. To Miralee, writing is a ministry that she hopes will impact hearts, and she anticipates how God will use each of her books to bless and change lives.
