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.

If you would like to read the first chapter of Last Chance for Justice, go HERE.

We travel with two woman, Lynn and Rachel, as they make their way to small town Bloomfield to tie up some legal technicalities concerning their deceased brother/uncle's estate. Returning means confronting all the people Lynn left behind to marry her husband, and their differing opinions of her. They soon realize their visit just took a turn for the opposite, they have a decades old mystery to solve.

I enjoyed my short stay in Bloomfield. The characters were well presented, they each held pleasent demeanors.  The food sounded absolutely delicious- much of the details were on food the characters were always eating or so it seemed. 

The mystery sounded so unique and intriguing, but I was disappointed to find that there really wasn't a 'mystery' so to speak of. The book seemed to concentrate on Rachel and her decision of whom to marry, John or Hayden. The romance was sweet yet puzzling at the same time. Rachel displayed mixed emotions and the romance was quite unrealistically fast. 

I wanted consider this book to be a mystery, but more of a sweet romantic contemporary. I enjoyed my time reading Last Chance For Justice, and give it a 4 out of 5.
