Welcome to my Monday Minis Reviews where I share shorter reviews of books I’ve read.

I’ve got a fun summer romance to share today.

Last Chance Motel

A Last Chance For Romance #1

by Abigail Keam



Genre: Romance

 My Review

This is such a fun read. I was sucked right in. Might be partially because its set in the south and I’m a southern gal. Plus, I love staying in the quaint family owned motels along the coast.

The divorce was tough on Eva and I admired her pluck. She heads to Key Largo and a brand new beginning, buying a worn down little motel and fixing it up.

The author kept the romance real. With Eva just divorced it wasn’t an instant love thing with her contractor, Mike. In fact, the fun thing about it was Eva didn’t like him at first. Those kind of romances are always a delight to read about. The clashes. The first sparks. It makes finding out if they get together or not that much more fun. Especially after Eva’s ex shows up with divorce remorse.

As the motel took shape, it was fun to learn of Eva’s ideas for it and how she puts her own signature on things.

A sweet, fun beginning to the romance series. If you like them light and humorous, this is one for you. Perfect for reading by the pool or a cold winter’s day when you wish for summer to come.

There are four more books in the series and each can be read as a stand alone. Different characters wind up at the Last Chance Motel and we get their stories.  I’ll be grabbing them too.

4 Stars



Eva Hanover – a brilliant career, a gorgeous brownstone in Brooklyn, and a sexy husband. Or, at least, she thinks so. In a wink of an eye, Eva’s husband leaves her. She loses the brownstone and her career. With only the clothes on her back, she flees cold New York for the sunnier climate of Key Largo.

As Eva puts it, her marriage went south and so does she. Stuck in Key Largo, it is sink or swim for the devastated Eva. Starting over is hard for anyone, but Eva wonders if she can. Determined to make a new life, Eva buys a rundown mid-century motel and renovates it. She hires Mike Bishop for her general contractor, but from the very beginning they cross swords of how to remodel the Last Chance Motel. It irritates Eva that many of Mike’s ideas are betters than hers. It couldn’t be that Mike bothers her because he is handsome, sexy, and rugged, could it? Eva needs a handsome and sexy man around her like she needs another hole in her head. Yet, she finds herself drawn to Mike and is grateful for his help.

In the midst of the motel’s renovation and her growing feelings for Mike, her ex-husband shows up and begs for her forgiveness, saying the divorce was a mistake. He wants her back.

What is Eva to do? Does she throw in the towel on the motel and go back to her ex, or does she stick with the renovation and Mike? One thing Eva does know, as the Last Chance Motel comes back to life, so does she. Step by step, Eva is determined to find purpose and happiness in life again. The question is how and with which man?


Check out the other books in the series. I just love the sassy, colorful covers and can’t to read them too!

  4. Sounds cute, and I like the covers. For some reason, though, when I saw the covers I thought “mystery series” rather than “romance.”

  5. I’ve seen this one around, love that cover , well all of them. They have a 1920s feel to them…. Yep, I’m catching up, all the posts I’ve missed. Since my laptop broke down I got right behind and out of my usual routine! 😀
