Last Chance Christmas by Hope Ramsay

 Release Date - September 25, 2012 The last thing photojournalist Lark expects is to find herself in the small town Last Chance, but that's exactly what happens after her father's death. His final wish was to have his ashes scattered on the town's mini-golf course. What Lark doesn't know is that her dad fled town right after the death of a prominent member of the town. Many people object to her presence and the owners of the mini-golf seem unwilling to consider her dad's last wishes. Stone, the local police chief, isn't happy that Lark's in town, and he is one of the first to admit he wants her gone. The widower is busy raising two girls, and his oldest daughter's fascination with Lark's work isn't helping.

As a single mom, she needed that job, worse her reputation is in tatters. When she's given the chance of a lifetime to move her and her young daughter to Kelleys Island in Ohio, she's hesitant. Ohio's weather is nothing like Miami's, but she needs a job that makes her happy. Working at sleazy hotels is not making her happy. Once she arrives on the island, she learns Mason didn't exactly tell the truth. The Lake Erie island does have a brewery and cabin rentals, but it's not completed. If she stays, Rachel would be helping with everything from the construction to the

He's moved on and ten years later, he and his second wife have a child and another on the way. Merritt and Luca are happy and settled into an enjoyable life. One night, a knock on the door changes everything. Lydia is back and demands to see her husband. Luca's out of town, but Merritt turns the stranger away. She needs time to process what she's learned and decide if this stranger is a con artist or the real deal. It's the real thing. Lydia's been held captive for many years. At the very least, Merritt feels they should help Lydia start over. It doesn't take long before Merritt realizes there is far more to Lydia's story than she could have imagined.  Unmissing takes a lot of turns. It's hard to like Lydia, even though she was kidnapped and treated badly for so many years. It's hard to like her when she could unrave
