Last Chance for Justice

Lynn Myers is trying to find a way to move forward in her life now that she has lost her husband Daniel after being married for thirty-five years. How does one simply pick up the pieces and move on? It doesn't help when she also receives a letter in the mail informing her that her only brother, Myron Cofield has also passed away and didn't want her to know about it. He stipulated in his will that his attorney was to wait at least three weeks after his death before notifying Lynn that she has inherited everything he owns. The only thing is, all he owns is in the small town of Bloomfield that Lynn grew up in as a child and subsequently moved away from when she married Daniel. Is it possible to go back to her beginning to try and find a new path this late in her life?

Armed with her dog Beasley and her daughter Rachel that has just returned home after graduating from Bible college, both women set off on a road trip to see just what Myron has left them. All they know is he used to live in a creepy two-story house next to the town's cemetery, I mean seriously who would want to live there? But all Lynn knows is that she can't continue to live in the house she and Daniel shared because everyday was another constant reminder of what she didn't have any longer and the person she loved would no longer answer her calls for him in their home.

When they arrive in Bloomfield, they are delighted by just how truly the small town feel really is. The waitress, Jolene Trump at Bert's Barbecue is still working there and must be about seventy now. However Lynn soon realizes that a lot of the people she grew up knowing are still living in Bloomfield, population 9, 978 and still home of the annual Spring Fling Festival. After meeting with her lawyer, Lynn and Rachel learn that the house is still situated at the end of Cemetery Road and that her brother insisted that the grounds keeper, Jason would be provided a place to live as long as they owned the house. He carry for the "garden" as he called the cemetery and the people buried there were his plants! He took his job very seriously and it seemed as if Myron and Jason had a great friendship since both of them lived like recluses.

It doesn't take Lynn long to learn that her brother Myron was in the midst of attempting to solve the mystery of righting the wrongs of long time resident Last Chance Justice. He hoped that Lynn would carry on in his quest if he died before finding out the truth. Now it's up to Lynn and Rachel to find out just what happened to Last Chance Justice before it's time to decide whether to sell Myron's home or will the call of small town Bloomfield speak volumes to both Lynn and Rachel and call them back home instead.

I received Last Chance for Justice by Kathi Macias compliments of B and H Publishing Group and Christian Fiction Blog Alliance for my honest review and received no monetary compensation for a favorable one. I really loved this novel first of all for the small town appeal that Bloomfield immediate draws the readers in and makes you want to stay here. Second, is the mystery of finding out what happened to Last Chance Justice and if its possible this many years later to finally solve the town's mystery and bring the reputation of the town's most notorious criminal to rest in peace once and for all. I can't wait to read many more books in the Bloomfield series and just know that I will come to love them as much as the delightful characters you meet in this one. Hands down a 4.5 of out 5 stars in my opinion and a great novel to add to your summer reading list.
