My Review:
On the one hand, I liked this book. The set-up for the story was good and interesting. The writing was clean and well-done. I loved the parallels in the book to Little Women...including the final scene. That definitely made this Little Women reader/lover a very happy camper. I liked the quirky little town and the knitting shop. And I loved Simon's assistant, Angel.

I did have problems with the characters though. By my calculations the heroine was 28 years old in the book. She still live

Last Chance Knit & Stitch by Hope Ramsay
I first wanted to read this book because it shows yarn and knitting needles.
I have read other books by this author and know it's going to be a good read.
Love that within the first chapter there is talk of a knit top done in the seed stitch. I had just finished a scarf with that stitch and it's stunning.

This is the eighth book in Hope Ramsay’s excellent Last Chance series. Molly Canaday’s life has gone crazy- her mom has taken a vacation and become incommunicado, her job has been taken by her best friend, a valuable car she is restoring is being held hostage by a sleazy banker, and she has met the man who could change her life.
Simon Wolfe has reluctantly come home to settle his father’s estate when he has car trouble and gets helped by Molly, the daughter of his old High School coach. His lack

I read this book right after I read "Dark and Stormy Knit". I always read these types of books, being a big knitter, but these types of books are always just too cutesy and happy and perfect for me.

That being said, this is one of the better knitting fiction books out there that I've read. The pacing is good, you can get into the characters, the storyline moves along at a decent pace. I'm not terribly in love with any of the characters, and I'm not terribly upset when the book ends, either. It's

I was fortunate to be able to receive an Advanced Reading Copy of this book several months before it is set to be released. I have loved every book in the Last Chance series, but I really think this one is my favorite so far. I loved the characters, some old friends and some new. There is one new character named Angel, who I'm hoping to see more of in future books. Angel is a very fun character. :) Reading these books makes you feel like you know the people.

This one was so fun to read, mostly because of how contrary Molly was. I liked Molly, loved that she wasn't a girlie girl and that she was happy with herself. I hated how everyone, even her own family wanted to change her, Molly is fine the way that she was.

I didn't really like Simon at the start of the book, it was only as things went on and the why of why Simon left came out that I was surprised that he came back, even for a death. I hated how people treated Simon, especially Molly's family.

Quick read. Loved Angel. He seemed real, as did some of the other characters. The knitting group was funny. However I thought the main character , who still lived at home was clueless a lot of the time. She didn't know how to cook, was clothes , or be a girl. I did believe in her determination to be who she was. Mama made a bad decision.

Last Chance Knit & Stitch by Hope Ramsay

This is the sixth novel in a series about the little town of Last Chance in southern USA. The town itself and the people in it are all very interesting and full of character. I guess I am enjoying stories about people who are trying to figure out how to do life together. What brings people that happen to live in the same town to want to work at actually being a real community of people who care about each other - warts, excentricities and all.

enjoyed the book, the small town expectations people had for molly showed though they had seen molly grow up they did not actually know her. Loved Angel character and personality. It shows the baggage people can have because of their parents views, values and expectations that can hinder, hurt and sometimes shape a child in who they should be without truly seeing them.

A very good addition to the series.
Molly Canady, daughter of Coach Canady, dreams of owning her own shop for restoring cars and to be taken seriously as a mechanic. She's a tom-boy down to her very soul preferring her loose-fitting trousers and her hands under the hood of a car with only two feminine quirks. She loves wearing pretty lacy underwear and she's a wonderful knitter. Her mildly dissatisfying life gets turned upside down in almost one day when her mother runs away from her life leaving Molly in charge of the home where ...more

Good book. Molly has been pretty content with her life. She enjoys her work as a mechanic and has plans to open her own body shop as soon as she sells the car she's restoring now. Her creative side is satisfied by her knitting. Then everything goes to hell when her mother runs away from home, leaving Molly in charge of the knitting shop and running things at home. The local banker is holding the car she's restoring hostage, and the building she wanted for her business is suddenly leased to someo ...more

Molly Canaday wishes she could repair her life as easily as she fixes cars. She was all set to open her own body shop in Last Chance when her mother ran off and left her to manage the family yarn shop instead. Now guided by the unsolicited-though well-intended-advice of the weekly knitting club, Molly works to untangle this mess.

Hearts: Three Hearts

Molly Canaday is a mechanic, knitter, and tomboy. She has big plans for herself in her hometown of Last Chance – find a space, open a body shop, live happily ever after. None of those plans include Golden-Boy-Returned-Home Simon Wolfe. Unfortunately, the moment Simon comes back to Last Chance Molly’s plans are burned to ash by the heat of their mutual attraction.

Review originally published at The Bookwyrm's Hoard.

I have mixed feelings about The Last Chance Knit and Stitch. In the first half of the book, Molly behaves like a teenager despite being in her twenties. She's perpetually angry, resentful, and rebellious. While she does have some legitimate reasons to be mad (particularly at her mother), Molly seems to always be looking for reasons to be angry or resentful. Frankly, it got old very quickly, and I almost put the book down.

I stuck it out, though,

I have read and loved all the other books in this series, but I really found this one not nearly as good as the others. The author had the makings of a great story. The main characters were also quite interesting and pretty well developed. I had two major problems with the book. I think the author tried to put too many major storylines in this book. It was enough for Molly and Simon to discover their attraction after all the years that had passed. However, the author also inserted two other majo ...more

Four stars for Last Chance Knit and Stitch, a fun Southern read by Hope Ramsay.

If you're looking for a fun, light romance with a Southern flair, Hope Ramsay's Last Chance Knit & Stitch will fit the bill. I love reading about quirky Southern towns and their inhabitants and often imagine what it would be like to live there. Yes, the iconic image of sipping sweet tea while sitting on a porch in a glider, springs to mind. But unlike some other books I have read recently, Knit & Stitch, didn

Molly Canaday has never been the delicate Southern flower that her parents want her to be. In Last Chance Knit & Stitch by Hope Ramsay, Molly loves her job rebuilding the bodies of cars and has big plans for her future, plans that don’t include marriage or a man. But when Molly’s mother leaves town and puts Molly in charge of the Knit & Stitch yarn shop, Molly finds herself re-evaluating her choices but is she willing to risk what she knows for the unknown?!

Molly and Simon were acquainted as children, when Molly was a tomboy and Simon played football for Molly's dad. Twenty-five years later, Molly is still a tomboy, fixing cars and avoiding domesticity. Simon is a famous artist, dropping back into town for his father's funeral, besieged by bad memories and childhood trauma. Though they seem an unlikely couple in their own eyes and those all over Last Chance, fate steps in and shows Simon and Molly that sometimes love is enough to overcome

He figured he would be in then out again. He has an art piece that has been commissioned to be done that he has to get back to that is due in two months.

Another enjoyable visit to Last Chance, South Carolina. I really like this series and the stories of ordinary people falling in love and working through various trauma, dramas, issues and just the stuff life throws at you. I also enjoyed seeing characters from previous books make brief appearances without clogging up the current story.

I did have an issue with the heroine, Molly being a doormat, especially with her dysfunctional family. Then again, it could be the author's believable writing tha

Hope Ramsay's Last Chance is a town populated by people we all know. They're not perfect; in fact, they're filled with self-doubt, as most of us are at one time or another. They can be small-minded and petty. They burn bridges and do other dumb things. They're all too human and, for the most part, ultimately likable.

Molly Canaday is one of Ramsay's most down-to-earth heroines yet. By day she's an auto mechanic, and her real passion is restoring classic cars. She hopes to own her own restoratio

For most of the book it seemed real familiar story to me. I checked and it showed pretty new dates on the web. Then I looked at copyright date and realized I probably read it decades ago. It holds up pretty well.

I like Last Chance. I have read one other book recently and a few members are the same. The scenes descriptions make you want to go down by the river and fish or swim. Last is a small town in the south that is struggling to survive. A place I would love to visit or live in.
