I ran across a new author last month and decided to try her book, Her Best Catch. I'm glad I did. It is a very light, entertaining read and just in time for summer.
Allison Doll isn't looking for romance. In fact, she's a little aggravated that her best friend's romance has begun to ruin a perfectly good threesome. On top of that, she's busy keeping an eye on her mother who hasn't been the same since the death of her husband. She's also a little busy juggling a hectic work schedule. But at Sunday School one morning, life suddenly takes a turn when a famous ball player walks in and sets his sights on her.
This story isn't deep or heavy, which is why I picked it up. I like light reading, and this story hooked me from the first. I finished it in less then 24 hours because I didn't want to put the book down. The cast of characters are well drawn, and I found myself laughing several times throughout the story.
I read one review where the reviewer disliked the fact that in the story the 30-year-old Allison was worried about what her mother (and others) would say if she went on an overnight trip with a man even though they would have seperate rooms. The reviewer thought that was ridiculous. I, on the other hand, appreciated that. I am a 30+, single, Christian female, and I would not go on an overnight trip with a man I wasn't married to, even if there were seperate rooms. The exception, as in the story, is a mission trip, etc., where there are others along. So, it was nice to read about a character who thinks there is value in a good reputation and appreciates the opinions of those that have been in authority over her even though she's now a grown adult.
If you want to find out what happens to Allison Doll, you'll need to grab a copy of Her Best Catch by Lindi Peterson. If you're looking for a quick, light, wholesome read for this summer, check out Her Best Catch. I did, and I'm glad I did. All in all, a fun read and an author I'm looking forward to hearing from again!
I would like to thank the publishers of Her Best Catch for providing me with a review copy via NetGalley. I was not asked or required to give a positive review, and all the opinions in the above review are strictly my own. :-)
