Last Chance Beauty Queen by Hope Ramsay

Last Chance Beauty Queen
By: Hope Ramsay

Dear Reader,
Gracious me, my beautiful daughter Rocky sure could use my help. I always knew she wasn't much interested in the local boys - but who'd have thought she'd come home with English royalty?
Trouble is, Hugh wants to buy some of our folks' land. We don't want to sell, but Rocky's job depends on her closing the deal. And though Hugh's obviously smitten, I'm not sure he's right for my Rocky. Oh, he's classy and handsome - and you should've seen the way he judged pies and fixed stock cars at our Watermelon Festival! - but what do we know about him, really? I know I sound like a nervous mother hen, but after forty happy years with my Elbert, all I want is to see my little girl find the same.
Well, time for me to quit chattering and get back to Miss Bray's wet set. Always nice talking to you, and remember: the Cut 'n Curl's got hot rollers, free coffee, and the best gossip in town.
See you real soon,
Ruby Rhodes

Christy’s Review:

This novel is basically a retelling of Pride and Prejudice set in the deep south of the United States. Because any version of P&P would be incomplete without an English Lord, one has been transplanted into this story, thank goodness! Add a watermelon pageant and a touch of supernatural and you’ve got a recipe for an adorable read. I really enjoyed this book. It’s a cute, fun romance – a perfect summer read. The love scenes aren’t over the top and the characters are believeable. My only issue with this book was the author’s over-use of several phrases and descriptors. But, glaze on through that and you’re sure to have a grand time with Rocky Rhodes and Lord Hugh down south, y'all.

  1. I've heard such great things about the Last Chance series, but I just haven't had a chance to read any of them. (I have the first one on my Kindle, maybe I should FINALLY read it!)
