"Last Chance captures the essence of Southern charm and quirkiness. I'm totally captivated!" —- Sherryl Woods, New York Times bestselling author

Jenny Carpenter is the unrivaled pie-baking champion of Last Chance, South Carolina's annual Watermelon Festival and the town's unofficial spinster. With her dream of marriage and children on hold, she focuses on another dream, turning the local haunted house into a charming bed-and-breakfast. But her plans go off course when the home's former owner shows up on her doorstep on a dark and stormy night . . .

Mega-bestselling horror writer Gabriel Raintree is as mysterious and tortured as his heroes. His family's long-deserted mansion is just the inspiration he needs to finish his latest twisted tale, or so he thinks until he learns it's been sold. The new innkeeper proves to be as determined as she is kind, and soon Gabriel finds himself a paying guest in his own home. As Jenny and Gabe bring new passion to the old house, can she convince him to leave the ghosts of his past behind-and make Last Chance their first choice for a future together?

Ramsay turns her seventh Last Chance contemporary Southern romance (after Last Chance Knit & Stitch) into a surprisingly successful haunted house tale, exploring dark themes about the past interfering with the present while making a delightful tribute to Jane Eyre. Horror writer Gabriel Raintree pushes his way back into using his old family home in Last Chance, S.C., as a writing retreat, even though Jenny Carpenter has just bought the building and is almost ready to open it as a B&B. The unsettled ghost of Gabriel’s brother, Luke, is as attention-seeking and strongly opinionated as Jenny’s book club friends, who would rather push her into a romance with attractive young Pastor Tim than allow her to embrace the idea of a happy spinsterhood. Jenny’s brave self-aware response—reinventing herself with a new fashion style and pursuing Gabriel for physical passion without expecting wedding bells—yields an upbeat, empowering, and still sweet novel about balancing community pressure with personal needs.
