Last Chance Hero by Cathleen Armstrong…
What”s the book about?
The inhabitants of Last Chance, New Mexico, could not be more pleased. Dr. Jessica McLeod has opened an office right on Main Street. Andy Ryan, the best athlete the little town ever produced, has ended his short career in the NFL and has come home to coach the mighty Pumas of Last Chance High. Unfortunately, Dr. Jess immediately gets off on the wrong foot when she admits that she’s never seen a football game, isn’t really interested in doing so, and, in fact, doesn’t know a first down from a home run. Meanwhile, Coach Ryan is discovering that it’s not easy to balance atop the pedestal the town has put him on. When this unlikely pair is drawn together over the future of a young player–whose gifts may lie in the laboratory rather than on the football field–they begin to wonder if they might have a future together as well.
With the flair that has made her Last Chance books a favorite among readers of contemporary fiction, Cathleen Armstrong draws on the passion Americans have for the traditions of small-town high school football.

My opinion: 5 stars out of 5.
I found lost myself with Jess in a new, small town, when she came to practice medicine and be a new doctor. Surely it was hard for her to build new “bridges”, new food testings, new everything. The townsfolk are different than she was used to. Hard, but slowly she gained new friends, new patients, and new feelings for the town hero.
Written by a great storyteller. I enjoyed my reading.
Enduring a new place is a hard task to all, adapting, questioning everything most of the time if we ever will belong to a place we would call our home, and feel like it. Life in transition is a great stretch and stress to many, I assume.
I am happy that Jess found her new home, where she can continue to pass on the heritage and new challenges in the medical field, even if it meant learning to love sports and chilies.
