Last Chance for Justice by Kathi Macias is the third Bloomfield novel.

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.

I love the cover of this book, it makes me want to visit an old house and do exactely what the women in this book end up doing. Lynn and Rachel (Lynn's daughter) go on an adventure to take care of Lynn's brother's estate as everything was left to her. He left behind creepy old house with a strange man who lives on the property and takes care of the cemetery, which is right next to the house. Lynn discovers journals that lead them on a trail of mystery about a man called Last Chance. Meanwhile, Rachel is turning the heads of every young man in town and giving the town something to gossip about.

I really liked this book at the beginning, the mother/daughter relationship reminded me of my mom and I. I love old houses that have a little mystery and I felt like I was in the story standing in the house. Unfortunately the mystery part was not so mysterious and by the end of the book I was very disappointed. This could have been a great mystery book but there is no twist and it becomes very predictable.
This is a sweet story with Rachel and her mother, but if you like some mystery you might not like this book.

"I received this book from CFBA for free in exchange for an honest review."
