Book Review: Last Chance for Justice by Kathi Macias

News of her brother Myron's death brings Lynn Meyers back to Bloomfield. Still reeling from the loss of her husband, Lynn isn't eager to return to the small town she left  years ago so she can settle her reclusive brother's estate.

Rachel, Lynn's daughter, has just finished Bible college. She joins her mother on the trip to Bloomfield and soon gains the attention of two eligible bachelors.

The two women become caught up in investigating a decades old mystery that was close to Myron's heart. The more time they spend in Bloomfield, the harder it seems to leave.

After years of creating powerful, heartrending faith-filled stories, Macias turns to a lighter style that remains true to her Christian readers. With Last Chance for Justice, the author has created an easy read that is sometimes funny, sometimes sad, and always entertaining. Masterfully told, this is the story of two women coping with uncertainty. Lynn has already lost her husband of thirty-five years when she receives word that her only sibling has died and bequeathed his creepy home by the town's cemetery to her. Her daughter Rachel has just finished college and her temporary job fell through, so she returns home in time to learn of her uncle's death and her mother's planned trip to Bloomfield. They journey together, not knowing what to expect. While Lynn is facing issues from her past, Rachel is praying for guidance for her future.

Everything readers come to expect from one of Macias' books is here: masterful storytelling, a strong plot, engaging characters, and faith. The difference being that Last Chance for Justice is not as emotionally charged as her books on human trafficking or persecuted Christians. I like this style. Macias does well with it.

Last Chance for Justice is the fourth Bloomfield novel released by B&H Publishing. Featuring multiple authors and titles spanning a mix of traditional print and eBook-exclusive formats, these are all stand alone projects set in the small town of Bloomfield.

If you enjoy faith-based cozy mysteries, you should give Last Chance for Justice by Kathi Macias a try.
