Last Chance Knit & Stitch by Hope Ramsay  "Last Chance captures the essence of Southern charm and quirkiness. I'm totally captivated!" --- Sherryl Woods, New York Times bestselling author

Molly Canaday wishes she could repair her life as easily as she fixes cars. She was all set to open her own body shop in Last Chance when her mother ran off and left her to manage the family yarn shop instead. Now guided by the unsolicited-though well-intended-advice of the weekly knitting club, Molly works to untangle this mess. But her plan unravels when the new landlord turns out to be difficult-as well as tall, dark, and handsome.

Simon Wolfe returns to quickly settle his father's estate and then leave Last Chance for good. Still wounded by a broken heart, Simon is surprised when the town's charming streets and gentle spirit bring back good memories. Soon the beautiful, strong-willed Molly sparks a powerful attraction that tempts him to break his iron-clad no-commitment rule. Can Simon and Molly find a way to share work space-and build a future together in Last Chance?



MY REVIEW:

        Simon Wolfe has issues with his hometown or should I say the bad memories his hometown bring to mind.  He left home some 19 years ago and has never returned until today, the day of his father’s wake.  He figured he would be in then out again.  He has an art piece that has been commissioned to be done that he has to get back to that is due in two months. 

     But, now at the wake he finds out from his aunt that for the last five years that not only has his mother’s mind been slowly slipping away, but the business, car dealership which employees 40 people, is going belly up.  Everyone is truly expecting him to stay.

     Molly Canaday, the young lady that recued Simon on the side of the rode with the tow truck has her own problems to deal with.  Coach her father is off on a fishing trip, her one lazy brother is just hanging around doing nothing, the other twin (the good one) is off at college, and her mom who owns the Knitting shop that she helps out with when not working at the garage, has run away from home.  And like that is not bad enough she has left Molly in charge of it all.

     Did I happen to mention that her mother did everything for family like cooking, cleaning, laundry grocery shopping and paying the bills?  Yeah, well, Molly does not do any of those things at all. With maybe the exception of buying groceries.  Now, the light bulb has just gone off.  Not good.  Let’s just say Molly is not happy, because of her mother running away from home has really made her have to really take a look at her own life to see where she needed to make some changes.

     What did she see?  No man (a grease monkey), which was okay with her, no southern lady (made everyone else nervous), a girl who liked to knit who wanted to open her own body shop not run her mom’s yarn shop.  So now what?  You will have to read it and see.  I really had a fun time reading this one.  Provided by netgalley.com
