This next three novels in this series will center around the women of the Last Chance Book Club as they meet to discuss literature and love. In each novel, the book club will be reading a classic novel, with the same themes playing out in the modern-day story.
While the Last Chance Book Club reads Pride and Prejudice, divorced mother Savannah White returns to Last Chance to attend her Great Uncle Harry's funeral and to visit her Aunt Mim after the death of her husband. Savannah hasn't visited Last Chance in ten years, so it comes as a shock to discover that her kissing cousin Dash Randall has everything taken care of. Savannah doesn't much like her cousin by marriage. When they were kids they fought like cats and dogs.
Dash is not so wild about this turn of events because Savannah and her bratty son end up staying at Aunt Mim's house and generally making his life miserable. Dash is determined not to help Savannah in any way . . . until Hettie Marshall asks him to. And Dash would do anything for Hettie, especially now that Hettie is a widow. In fact, Dash wants to turn himself into the kind of guy Hettie could love.
But a funny thing happens during the renovation when Aunt Mim goes into matchmaking mode and tries to match Savannah up with Reverend Bill Ellis. Hettie's not so wild about that turn of events. And, as it turns out, neither is Dash.
Hope Ramsay grew up on the North Shore of Long Island, but every summer Momma would pack her off under the care of Aunt Annie to go visiting with relatives in the midlands of South Carolina. Her extended family includes its share of colorful aunts and uncles, as well as cousins by the dozens, who provide the fodder for the characters you'll find in Last Chance, South Carolina. She's a two-time finalist in the Golden Heart and is married to a good ol' Georgia boy who resembles every single one of her heroes. She lives in Fairfax, Virginia, where you can often find her on the back deck, picking on her thirty-five-year-old Martin guitar.
