I received this book from the publisher and netgalley in exchange for an honest unbiased review. This is the first book that I have read in the Last Chance series by Hope Ramsey. I have always wanted to read one and had put them on my to read series. So when I had the opportunity to read this ARC before it real eased I jumped at the chance. Having not read Hope before I was not sure if her writing style or characters would be something that I liked. However, she proved me wrong and I found that he were great. She did a great job of giving you enough back story on the characters to understand how they ticked but didn't give you too much. Hope also did a great job of making the story steady and not rushing it to get to the climax of the book. She really had me hooked at the first fire that took place and kept me until the end where you found out who'd done it.
In addition, I really enjoyed her writing style. She mixed the story up to have romance, family and mystery which are the three topics I enjoy. If there was one part that I found was lacking was information about agent Bailey. I think she gave you enough about Sabina's sister to know her but when it came to Agent Bailey you were left feeling like you didn't really know who he was other than an agent checking out the fires.
I am very interested to read the previous books in this series so that I can learn a little bit more about the town and the other residents. In addition, I can't wait until the next book in the series comes out. Another great author to my reading list!
