First Sentence
Joel Royer laid a hand on Hallie's forearm and cleared his throat in an effort to get her attention, but she couldn't look away from the body, the remnant, the wax figure that had once been her stepfather. Read the first page

I had seen the movie and I wanted to learn more about the character. I was not dissapointed. It is really a good book.

I was surprised to read all the good reviews for this book. I was not impressed though I read the entire book. From what I could gather, Hallie wasn't in town long enough to form any great relationships with anybody. It was a bit on the cheesy side. And everything worked out just a little too smoothly all the time. From the moment she walked into the cafe she had a job, a beautiful home to stay in, a decent vehicle to drive and money. Course, she had the perfect kids and everything went along perfectly and the neighbors were instantly all her friends. I didn't feel any real chemistry between the two main characters and I thought the plot had a lot of holes. The big climax with her ex-husband was boring and I thought it was ridiculous when she left. I am a Miller fan, but this just didn't do it for me.

There are some wrong doings dealing with the death of her step-father. The authorities said it was petty theft. A stranger shows up at the funeral telling her that is was murder and tells her there's a box that contains evidence of the fact. When locating the box, Hallie's husband appears demanding the box be turned over to him. She knows he's involved now. She feels the urgency to get out-of-town with the box, so Hallie O'Rourke grabs her 2 girls, jumps in a broken down truck and heads out with no more than the clothes on her back. Hallie ends up in Primrose Creek at The Last Chance Cafe during a snow storm after they have walked several miles. The truck is broke down, there's no money, no plans, and she's got 2 little girls that are hungry and scared.
Chance Qualtrough, single and a local rancher, takes one look at Hallie standing in the door of the cafe and feels the need to "take her under his wing." He offers to help her find a place to stay- thinking of his aunt's vacant house the whole time. The owner of the cafe offers Hallie a job of waitressing. Hallie decides to take both offers so she can "stop for a minute" and think about what her next move will be. And there is something about Chance that tells Hallie to trust hime and allow him to "protect" her and the girls. Instead of a night or 2 of rest and thinking, Hallie's stay turns out to be longer (there's peace here, could this be what she has been for). In the back of her mind she knows that her ex-husband is looking for her- she has something that is wanted by the possible murderer of her loved step-father, something that could ruin a man and career.
Chance has a home but it's lacking love and warmth. He thought he had found it one time, a long time ago, but it turned to someone else.

Hallie O'Roarke found sanctuary in Primrose Creek after being forced to flee Phoenix in fear for the lives of herself and her twin seven year old daughters. When her stepfather is murdered in his home in what appeared to be an attempted robbery, Hallie is skeptical. Not only was Lou a vetran police officer, but to Hallie, it just didn't seem like something that would happen to him. When she finds evidence that he was murdered due to an investigation he was in the middle of, Hallie knew that she would have to leave town.
Chance Qualtrough felt an electrical charge when he first laid eyes on Hallie O'Roarke. He wants to shake her and hold her at the same time, but he knows the only thing that he can do to earn her trust is keep her daughters safe. Soon, Chance can't imagine letting her or the twins go.
The Last Chance Cafe is a very emotional read about a woman that is on the run and doing everything she can to keep her daughters safe. Not knowing how she's going to keep going on with no money or job, Primrose Creek is a haven that she doesn't want to leave. However, she knows that good things don't last forever and soon her past will catch up with her. The only thing she knows, aside from her fierce desire to keep her daughters safe, Hallie doesn't want to leave Chance and the new love that she has found.

I'm not much of a murder mystery book lover, but I do like books that tend to have a bit of mystery mixed in with a love story. A fluffy book that won't scare the heck out of me! That's exactly what the Last Chance Cafe was...a good love story with a bit of a murder mystery in there.
It is the story of Hallie and her twin daughters. They are on the run from people who murdered her stepfather. Her car breaks down in a snow storm and she finds the Last Chance Cafe...and a wonderful cowboy. The story goes from there...love, trust, murder, and thrills. It's a good, quick read. Especially if you're looking for a light-hearted mystery romance!

While this story was both interesting and entertaining, it could have been improved by a more detailed description of the setting. Nevada has several distinct characters - the highlands, the Mojave desert lands and the Great Basin valleys. The start of the book had me recalling blinding snowstorms I'd experienced out in the lonely sagebrush scrub, but later on, it became clear that Primrose Creek actually lay somewhere around Lake Tahoe, within easy reach of both Carson City and Reno. Unfortunately, that magnificent landscape - which could have become a major character in the novel - was never adequately described. Okay, the entire point of the book was to tell a love story (and it's probably too easy to criticise authors who've clearly sweated blood over their work), but I do believe that setting is important, especially when the author chooses a location as fabulous as small-town Nevada!
