"Overall, this expressive character-driven story is about people who are given a second chance in life, finding new friends and family, and finding acceptance and love when one needs it most. If you enjoy reading unique stories filled with new beginnings and a bit of suspense, give this book a try."

- The Eclectic Review

"The overarching theme was one of redemption and belonging. At our core, human beings need connection with others. Even the worst of us. Even the most broken of us. The redemption theme of Last Resort reminds us that we all deserve a second chance, and with a little hard work and understanding for one another, we can all have one."
