Dash has had his fair share of obstacles over the years, not the least of which has been overcoming a drinking problem. Just when he's got his life back on track, in walks his childhood nemesis and her sullen, spoiled son. Of course, Savannah is no longer a girl (he can't help but notice that!) and the years have changed them both. Soon the mutual wariness grows into an all-consuming attraction, but an actual "relationship"? - Neither one is sure that's a very bright idea.
Well, overall I really enjoyed this, though I did have a few issues. In the beginning I spent entirely too much time trying to figure out if Dash and Savannah were actually related! There was too much "well my mother's aunt's sister married so-and-so, and your grandfather is my second cousin's uncle by marriage" - gave me a headache. Finally, it is made quite clear that there is no actual blood relationship (Phew!!). I liked both of the main characters. Dash has been featured in the earlier `Last Chance' books and it was nice to get his backstory. Savannah was a sympathetic character, a woman who recognizes that she's stuck in a dead-end situation and decides to do something about it.
(I don't consider the following "SPOILERS", but someone else might):
As far as the actual "romance", I felt that the fact that Dash spent the first 50% of the book pining after an unrequited love interest took away a bit from his relationship with Savannah. When that issue is finally put to rest (a little too "neatly", I might add), then Dash and Savannah enter into a no-strings-attached affair. Their mutual delusion that it was "just sex" got old after a while. In fact, the words "dirty sex" (or some variation thereof) are used about a dozen times. It just seemed silly, since we, the readers, can see how obvious it is that these two do have real feelings for each other. Ho-Hum. The ending felt way too rushed, with everything being wrapped up in an abrupt manner. I'm not a huge fan of epilogues, but frankly this story could have used one.
All in all though it was a sweet story about two nice people who both deserve a little love in their lives. You'll get a chance to catch up with various "Last Chance" characters, and it's always a pleasure to spend some time in that delightfully quirky little town. One more thing: If you were slightly put-off by the "angel woo-woo" aspect that the earlier books contained, you'll be happy that there's very little of that included in this story.
Occasional use of strong language and there is some (mild) sexual content. While it's not strictly necessary to read the other books in the series before reading this one, you might find yourself overwhelmed by the series regulars if you don't.
"No, not exactly. It's just that Nita Wills, our librarian, doesn't believe in happy endings. So every book we read has a sad relationship at its core. I swear, the girls are getting tired of it. Tomorrow's meeting might be the last straw. Nita told me this morning when I ran into her at the post office that she was thinking about another Nicholas Sparks book for this month's read. And you know what that means."
"No, I don't."
"It means either the hero or the heroine will end up dead at the end of the book."

I will re-read this book and always look forward to more from this author.
I loved the mysteries, introduction of the animals, all of this added to the romance and charm of the small southern town.
The characters, the town, the south at it's best.
