Love Finds You in Last Chance California
Love Finds You in Last Chance, California takes the reader back to the days of horse ranching in the far west when men were greedy for more land and the promise of gold. Miralee creates characters who show the spunk and spirit that made our country great. Alexia Travers is a strong-willed, stubborn woman who refuses to give up when her father dies unexpectedly, and she finds herself burdened with a mortgage and unpaid bills. Justin Phillips and his son Toby arrive to help, but mysterious things begin to happen. Can Alex trust her new ranch hand? The secondary characters add warmth, humor, and wisdom to this story of determination to keep the ranch working. The mystery of who is trying to sabotage Alex is skillfully woven into the story and keeps the reader guessing. Just enough other elements of surprise are thrown in to keep me turning the pages to see who wants Alex to fail. As Alex and Justin clash over what should be done on the ranch, Alex wonders if she can trust him, and Justin fights the feelings for her that can only get in his way. How these two work together to uncover the facts of her father’s death and who is threatening the ranch makes for an exciting story of adventure and love I think you will truly enjoy.
