"Last Chance for Justice" by Kathi Macias

About this book:

  “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.”

Series: Book #3 (of five) in the “Bloomfield” series. (Books are connected, but I had no trouble following along. Written by four different authors.) 

Spiritual Content- Many Prayers & talks to God; Scriptures are mentioned; Talks about God, Heaven, trusting God & praying; ‘H’s are capital when referring to God; Church going; Mentions of Bible reading; Rachel has a degree from a Bible college.

Negative Content- Minor cussing including: two ‘stupid’s; Living next to a cemetery and mentions of corpses & dead people; Mentions of divorce & a wife who left.   

Sexual Content- a forehead kiss, and two semi-detailed kisses; Touches (barely-above-not-detailed); Dates & mentions of crushes and kisses; A mention of woman who died in childbirth; A bit of love, falling in love & the emotions.

-Lynn Myers, age mid-50s
-Rachel Myers, age 22
                                        P.O.V. of switches between them, John & Hayden (twice)
                                                        303 pages (with a recipe)

My personal Rating- 
The first book I read by Kathi Macias got a five-star rating from me—no small feat as y’all know—and I’m sad to say it’s taken me a year and a half to pick up another book by her, why I’m not sure! She’s a great, clean, characters-with-great-faiths author! I really enjoyed “Last Chance for Justice”. (Even though I got caught up more in the John vs Hayden then the mystery, most of the time. ;) )

See y’all on Friday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.

Series: Book #5 in “Mandie” series. (Read the reviews of: #1 Here! #2 Here! #3 Here! And #4 Here!) {There also is the “Young Mandie Mystery” series, (Book #1 review Here and Book #2 review Here!) but they do not connect together well}

Negative Content- April’s baaaaaack! (Not as bad this time though.)
