REVIEW: Love Finds You in Last Chance, CA by Miralee Ferrell

Miralee Ferrell’s “Love Finds You in Last Chance, CA” is an entertaining romance wrapped in a mystery with strong characters, a delightfully wide-open setting, and solid Christian values. Alexis Travers has just inherited the ranch she worked with her father. His heart attack couldn’t have come at a worse time. Neither could the news that he just mortgaged the ranch at the bank, or that the money he got for the loan is missing, or that someone else picked up the gold samples he had appraised along with the report on the content. And not even the trusted ranch foreman, Uncle Joe, knows where Alex’s father found the gold on the property.

Justin is a father with a young son, traveling to Last Chance to repay the debt of his father to a friend. The telegram said that there were mysterious happenings and that they may be in danger. So Justin packed up and headed toward the Travers ranch. Sworn to secrecy about his true mission, Justin manages to get hired on at the ranch as a wrangler. And the situation turns out to be a blessed answer to prayer. Last Chance and the Travers ranch could really be the home that Justin and Toby are looking for. And, even though Justin has sworn off of love due to a bad experience, he can’t help his growing feelings for Alex.

This heartwarming novel is my favorite of Miralee’s books! She is a talented storyteller, weaving action, romance, drama and faith into a story that entertains, encourages and inspires.
