Overview


After being married to their careers instead of each other for ten years,

Sheila Rushmore is Ace's current girlfriend and a woman who is used to getting what she wants - except Ace's commitment to marriage. When Sheila realizes Lynette may be the cause, she launches a plan to play the hand of God, instead of allowing
God to bring the love they all desire in His way.

    God Is Good! All The Time!!

    Ace Bowers is a pilot for one of Atlanta's major airlines and a God-fearing man. Lynette Bowers is pediatric dentist and a praying woman. It's been four years since their divorce. To her surprise, Lynette is beginning to have feelings for her ex. Again. Even though Ace has been seeing another woman for two years, he can't stop thinking about the woman he was once married to. He doesn't want to hurt his girlfriend, Sheila, but if God is leading him to reunite with Lynette, he is more than willing to let the Lord have His way. Sheila can tell something isn't quite right; especially when Ace calls her by his ex-wife's name. She doesn't have the close relationship with God that Lynette has, so she isn't trying to seek the Holy Spirit's guidance in this matter. When she finds out what's going on, she calls on her manipulative friend, Cassandra, to devise a plan that will help her keep her man. In The Last Woman Standing the author doesn't mention God just every now and then. He is a main focus in the story and, most importantly, the name of Jesus isn't left out: Ace and Lynette both love the Lord. They include the heavenly Father in their conversations with each other and other people. They don't just seek Him when they're troubled, they include Him in every aspect of their lives and they teach their teenage daughters, Carmen and Jada, to do the same. Lynette's parents, Pop Walter and Mama Claudette, are a couple who honor God first, then each other. Lynette's best friend, Audrey, and her husband, Kirk, are good examples of how spouses in a Christian marriage should relate to one another. Grandma Toot lives her life according to God's Word and she has a spiritual discernment that will make the devil flee! My favorite character, Jamal, is a nice, respectable young man who has a close relationship with God and knows how to treat a lady. And even though Sheila kept rationalizing, deep down she knew God was trying to do something in her life. I had seen McCollors' name often and I always meant to read her work. The cover drew me to this one and I'm glad it did; otherwise, I would have missed out on an entertaining read that teaches valuable lessons without being preachy and includes a thought-provoking sermon. I won't go on and on about all of the important messages this inspirational novel sends. I'll just mention one: Christians don't always get it right, but God is forgiving and if they would learn to trust in Him and follow His lead, things will turn out for the best.

    The ex wife/husband had amazing chemistry, you could feel their connection was so strong and not just because of their children together!
    I felt bad a little for the girlfriend because her man should have handled it better. Overall it was an outstanding, love story!

    Couldn't put it down...and didn't want it to end

    The Last Woman Standing was the first book I read by Tia McCollors. I opened it up on a Saturday morning; tried to put it down to do some chores; but ended up turning on the stereo (Joe Sample and Jane Monheit) and listened to music while finishing this book all in one sitting. I have never read a book that had me rooting for all the main characters at the same time - even though in some cases they were in opposition of each other. I laughed aloud, found myself commenting aloud to no one in particular, and didn't want the story to end. I think everyone can relate to and/or identify with someone in this book. I would even suggest this book to men (even though it may expose some of our womanly secrets). The characters are so real and the story shows how people take their faith and apply it (sometimes inaccurately) to their everyday lives. Just like all of Tia's books, this one was (in the author's words) a "sweet blend of faith and fiction". And it sparked an interest in all of her books which I went back and read over a two month period after buying them.

    This book brought about a lot of fun questions in book club. The women had some strong comments and feelings about the main male character and his girlfriend. And the cover inspired our hostesses to have a Fiercest Shoe Contest at our meeting, and the author attended.

    AAMBC Book Reviews

    The Last Woman Standing is a novel that speaks on a divorce couple (Lynette and Ace) who are dating other people and are still cordial for their children sakes. However, one tends to wonder how they can be so cordial and such good friends after they divorced? Is there more than meets the eye? Although Lynette and Ace have two lovely girls, Carmen and Jada, it appears that under that thick skin they still have feelings for one another. When the two ladies meet, Lynette and Ace's girlfriend, Sheila, surprisingly they keep their cool under these measures. Sheila desperately wants to marry Ace and have his children regardless of his past marriage and children, but it appears after two years, he is not ready for another serious relationship.

    Tia McCollors novel is well-written, yet at times I found it rather slow in pace and lack of excitement (page-turner). She shines on some passages from the Bible from time to time to deliver a message to those who believe in God's Word and how it relates to our social life or relationships. This book is for those who enjoy reading contemporary fiction, women's fiction, general romance, and/or Christian fiction books.
