After marrying her high school sweetheart, science teacher Amanda Wright was left home when her husband joined the Marines and went overseas. He was killed while serving in Afghanistan, leaving her with a young son, who is now almost five-years-old. Then six months ago, she lost her grandfather, who was the local DJ. Now, between her job, raising her son and caring for her granny, who is in the early stages of dementia and often expects to hear her husband on his radio show, Amanda has her hands full. Looking forward to a day at the annual Watermelon Festival with her son and granny in tow, Amanda is taken aback by the charming, funny voice over the radio broadcast as he interviews the local matchmaker, Miriam Randall.

Grant Trumbull becomes the local DJ after the death of Amanda’s grandfather. Grant came to the small town three months ago, purchasing and reviving the fading station. An experienced announcer, he enjoys his work and is hoping to find the right woman and settle down. During the interview at the festival, Miriam tells him to go to the Lost and Found. So, announcing that he is heading to the Lost and Found, he extends an invitation to all of the single young ladies to meet him there.

Amanda knows that, with his deep, charismatic voice, the new DJ has gained the attention of many of the local women, especially the woman of the church auxiliary who hang on his every word, but she has no intention of accepting his open invitation. But when her son and her granny go missing, she runs to the Lost and Found, even though the last thing she expects when she comes face-to-face with the DJ, is how gorgeous he is. He is like her deepest fantasy come to life. Can this man be the soul mate she has been looking for, but never expected to find?

A delicious new short story in author Hope Ramsay’s wonderful LAST CHANCE series, LAST CHANCE SUMMER is a wonderful way to try out the series, if you haven’t already.

Packed with humor, the Watermelon Festival, southern charm, grief, dementia, new beginnings, quirky characters, small town dynamics, romance and love, this story is a delight.
