About the Book:

It’s 1877 and Alexia Travers is alone in the world. Her father has died unexpectedly, leaving her burdened with a heavily mortgaged horse ranch. Marrying one of the town’s all-too-willing bachelors would offer an easy solution, but Alex has no interest in marriage. Instead, she dons men’s trousers and rides the range, determined to make the ranch a success on her own.
But despite Alex’s best efforts, everything seems to go wrong: ranch hands quit, horses are stolen, and her father’s gold goes missing. Alex is at her wit’s end when wrangler Justin Phillips arrives in Last Chance with his young son, looking for a job. But there seems to be more to Justin’s story than he’s willing to share. Will Alex ever be able to trust him? More importantly, will the independent woman finally learn to depend on God?

My Review:
For starters, let me start and say that Love Finds You is THE best collection of books that you will ever find!!! I LOVE these books and they are all unique in their own way. I have almost every one that has released thus far, and will continue to collect them until they aren’t written any more (which I hope will be years down the road!). So, that being said, I will say this now: Miralee Ferrell is a WONDERFUL author! I have read her books in the past, and they all have pulled me in instantly, and made me a part of her stories. Love Finds You in Last Chance, California, her first Love Finds You novel was no different. It was an EXCELLENT read!

Sitting down and opening this book, I was captured from page one. The tragedy of Ben Travers was a sad start, I will admit but, pushing past the sadness and moving on in the novel, I fell in love with Alexia “Alex” Travers and Justin Phillips. Their characters quickly became my friends. But, oh what a sweet little character Toby was….he stole me heart completely!!!

The plot line was fantastic! Miralee added suspense to this love story. Things were happening Alex and her ranch after the tragedy with her pa, and just when I thought I had it figured out, in comes a new twist and happening, and bam! On with more page turning. That is excellent work! I loved the messages from God that Miralee had woven in. A story of a last chance at love, forgiveness, hope, and trust (both in God and in people!) made up this heartwarming suspenseful love story!

Most definitely worthy of 5 stars. I highly recommend that if you have never picked up a Miralee Ferrell novel before, please start here with this INCREDIBLY FANTABULOUS novel! And, if you’re new to the Love Finds You collection, start here in Last Chance, California! Miralee will have you hooked for life, both on her books AND the Love Finds You books! Well done, hats off, and two thumbs up to Miralee Ferrell!
