Last Chance for Justice by Kathi Macias

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.

There is nothing better than a mystery that captures your attention and doesn't let go until the very last pages.  The story of Last Chance, a young boy accused of stealing a small sum of money, was heart breaking. He insisted until his death that he was innocent, but sadly the residents of Bloomfield didn't believe him. The only person still alive to defend his honour was his 90+ year old sister, Miss Pearl.

After Lynn's brother passed away, she inherited his home that borders the town cemetery. Even the big old house is kind of creepy, and Lynn can't wait to leave town and all of it's memories behind.

However, Lynn and her daughter Rachel are soon drawn into the mystery of Last Chance. Reluctantly at first, they are also drawn into the hearts and lives of the residents of Bloomfield.

The characters in this great novel are lovable and believable, and Bloomfield quickly became a place that I would love to visit.  I highly recommend this one!!
