Hallie O'Rourke walks into the Last Chance Café for refuge from a snowstorm, a pick-up that has gasped its last, and a life that has gone from bad to worse. As her temporary refuge develops into much more, she guards her secrets and strives to protect her young daughters' safety. Has her life finally taken a turn for the better? Is it too good to last? Is this a mystery with a heavy dose of romance or a romance with an undercurrent of intrigue? Christine Marshall's narration takes the best techniques from both genres. Her colorful characters become familiar quickly and (except for a few villains) make this little town and its diner seem like a great place to be. J.E.M.
