In response to her father’s last request, Lark Chaikin travels to Last Chance, South Carolina, to scatter his ashes in a miniature golf course named Golfing for God. The first problem is that the town doesn’t want her there; the second is that something happened 40 years ago when her father was in town and the town doesn’t want to revisit what happened. Thus the stage is set for Lark to meet and enter a push-pull encounter with the town’s sheriff, Stonewall Rhodes, also known as Stone. Lark, who is a professional war photographer, has a past, as does Stone. As the story unfolds, the two main characters confront their own demons as well as the insistence of some of the town’s prominent citizens that Lark leave town immediately. Throw into the mix the Sorrowful Angel that Stone’s younger daughter keeps interacting with and his older daughter’s teenage romance with a shy newcomer in town whose parents have strong objections to their son becoming involved with a girl of a different religion.
The novel is a delightfully complicated romantic tale with elements of suspense and danger as well as a story line that delves into the emotional lives of the main characters. Hope Ramsay writes well and constructs a satisfying story that has many elements that evoke the ambiance of the rural south. The book is the latest in a series about the town of Last Chance and it may make the reader interested in seeking out the earlier books. It is definitely an enjoyable read.
