Yes, our town is way off the beaten path, but strange, wonderful miracles happen a lot around here.
I’ve owned the Cut ‘n’ Curl beauty shop for years, and I’ve seen folks come for a visit, then stay for a lifetime. Take Jane-that pretty firecracker of a girl who just arrived in town. I would swear she’s running from something. She came with only five dollars in her pocket but she’s worked real hard to make a fresh start. She’s turned my son Clay’s life upside down without even realizing it.
And thank goodness for that! Ever since Clay left his country western band, he’s played everything too safe. He needs to take a chance on Jane. Besides, the more he tries to keep his distance, the more he’ll realize that he and Jane are singing the same tune.
But I should quit ramblin’ and go check on Millie’s permanent wave. Next time you’re in Last Chance, be sure to swing by. We’ve got hot rollers, free coffee, and the best gossip in town.
See you real soon,
About the Author
Hope Ramsay was born in New York and grew up on the North Shore of Long Island, but every summer Momma would pack her off under the care of Aunt Annie to go visiting with relatives in the midlands of South Carolina. Her extended family includes its share of colorful aunts and uncles, as well as cousins by the dozens, who provide the fodder for the characters you’ll find in Last Chance, South Carolina. Hope earned a BA in Political Science from the University of Buffalo and has had various jobs working as a Congressional aide, a lobbyist, a public relations consultant, and a meeting planner. She’s a two-time finalist in the Golden Heart and is married to a good ol’ Georgia boy who resembles every single one of her heroes. She has two grown children and a couple of demanding lap cats. She lives in Fairfax, Virginia, where you can often find her on the back deck, picking on her thirty-five-year-old Martin guitar.

After a bit of a slow start for me, this one became a sweet romance between Jane and Clay, two opposites who attracted. I am not sure if this is the beginning of a series but it should be since there are so many sassy and fun characters in a small town beauty parlor. I could see a book for each character. Jane is running away from her past and finds Clay, a broken musician (sorry, country — this is in the South, you know). This book will get you in the mood for spring!
