Synopsis: It wouldn’t be summer without the Watermelon Festival, and single mom Amanda Wright is looking forward to a carefree day eating funnel cakes and sipping sweet tea. But with her inquisitive son and elderly grandmother in tow, she’s not in the mood for carnival rides or the kissing booth, until she hears a charming, funny voice over the loudspeaker.
Grant Trumbull is the new DJ at the local radio station, and his deep, booming cadence has all the ladies of the church auxiliary atwitter. Even without seeing his face, Amanda can’t help but wonder if he’s the one for her. When she finally comes face to face with the man behind the mic, summer is about to get a whole lot hotter in little Last Chance, South Carolina. (publisher)
My take: Last Chance Summer is a short story about Amanda Wright, her young son, and her grandmother who spend the day at the Watermelon Festival. It’s an annual event that the community of Last Chance, South Carolina look forward to the entire year.
When Amanda’s grandmother and then her son both go missing Amanda is beside herself with worry. Everyone looks for the pair and the new radio DJ who’s been broadcasting at the Festival all morning becomes part of the search. Like it or not, Amanda is about to meet the man with the attractive voice on the radio.
This is a very short story that ends on an abrupt, high note. Last Chance Summer is like a cold glass of sweet tea on a hot summer day. I enjoyed it and look forward to reading more of the Last Chance series.

I think this series looks really interesting. I have one of the books on my shelf, and hoping to collect more! Thanks for the review! =)
The title caught my eye because summer is ending and I feel like I’m grasping at a last chance to enjoy it. I’m back from my European vacation and I’m still in vacation mode. Don’t want summer to end!!
I often enjoy short stories, and this one sounds like it’s upbeat and fun. I like the cover, too!
This does sound cute and I like that it takes place in South Carolina!
Loving the sound of the Watermelon Festival and your description of this book being like a cold glass of sweet tea on a hot summer day
I love this series and enjoyed reading Last Chance Summer.. I think that the idea of a Watermelon Festival is so adorable..
Sounds like a very pleasant read.
I like this series, but like you, found the ending to this one to be abrupt–and I looked at the synopsis for the next one in the series and it doesn’t seem to be the continuation of this story.
This sounds like it could be a good series. I like the cover. It’s so summery!
