Bloomfield a town I could love and hate. :) No, not really. I love the small town, homey, interconnected community feeling of places like Bloomfield. I can see how that same great place could drive Lynn Myers up the wall too. Everyone in your business and meddling, knowing things almost before you do. It could definitely cause a love/hate relationship.

That in itself is part of what makes the book fun. The town itself comes to life. Lynn left it behind years ago along with all the peer pressure and community expectations. She thinks she's over it. But coming home for a visit after losing her brother puts everything in a new perspective. Especially with her daughter Rachel along. Lynn may be in the later chapters of her life while Rachel is just starting, but their both facing the same questions. Where do I belong? What does God have planned for my life?

It's in the process of helping to fulfill Lynn's brother's dying wish that they find their own answers. Last Chance for Justice is a new chance for Lynn and Rachel.

Great story, funny and captivating. I enjoyed it so much, I kind of miss Bloomfield now.


Welcome to Bloomfield, where life is simple, love is real, and stories are shared.

Lynn Myers is still reeling from losing her husband of thirty-five years when word comes that her only sibling, an older brother, has also died. With no one else to settle the estate, she must return to her small hometown of Bloomfield, however briefly, to settle his affairs.

Lynn’s daughter, Rachel, has just graduated from Bible college and with no other commitments comes along to sort through her uncle’s huge old home, right next to the local cemetery.

It isn't long before Rachel has two men -- a handsome CPA and the youth pastor -- seriously vying for her attention. At the same time, Lynn's attention is drawn to a set of journals her brother has left behind detailing a long-standing Bloomfield mystery.

As they pursue solving this mystery, Rachel must make some personal decisions about her future, while Lynn is forced to face unexpected issues from her own past.
