"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.”

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.
