Publisher's Book Description

“With danger drawing ever closer, their only hope of saving their futures lies in each other. 
As a midwife, Catherine Remington is successful in bringing new life into the world, but she's failed one too many times in finding true love. When she's accused of a murder she didn't commit, she's forced to flee to Colorado to honor a patient's dying wish by delivering a newborn infant to his father. 
The repentant prodigal Dylan McQuaid is finally back in Fairplay. As sheriff, he's doing his best to prove to the town he's a changed man and worthy of their trust. When a woman shows up with an infant son he didn't know he had, Dylan is left with only complicated choices on what to do next. 
Having grown attached to Dylan's son, Catherine doesn't want to part ways with the infant, but what she doesn't bargain for is how easily she'll fall for the charming sheriff, or how quickly the past will catch up with her and put their love and lives in danger.”


My Review

The Last Chance Cowboy is the final book in the remarkable Colorado Cowboys series by Jody Hedlund. Once again, Ms. Hedlund has succeeded in crafting an amazing novel that is packed with memorable characters, rustic settings, and a captivating plot. This marriage-of-convenience story is well-written and thoroughly entertaining. Enriched by the perfect combination of history, adventure, and romance, it is a book that uplifts while it entertains. 

Like the other books in this series, this novel is set within the busy ranches, small towns, and rugged mountains of the Colorado Territory. In this rural land, assumptions, misunderstandings, secrets, dangers, and fears, create plenty of obstacles for the characters to overcome. Though they endeavor to do that which is selfless and honorable, they are challenged by the consequences of their choices and their own insecurities. As they face significant dangers that threaten their futures and their goals, they must also confront issues of trust, truth, and forgiveness. As their story unfolds, the novel grows increasingly moving and thoughtful. 

The Last Chance Cowboy is a memorable story worthy of a reader’s time and attention. Its important themes of forgiveness, trust, honesty, and second chances fill this book with meaning. It is a special novel that is wonderfully romantic, adventurous, and emotionally-impactful. I recommend it wholeheartedly.
