Her Best Catch by Lindi Peterson
Allison Doll’s mother is rebelliously turning fifty, her two best friends have started dating and a gorgeous injured relief pitcher named Ashton Boyd has joined her Sunday school class, rocking her world into confusion, heartache and temptation, places she hasn’t visited in a long time, much less all at once.
But with the help of family, old friends she really hasn’t lost, a new friend she really can count on, and God, she begins to find out whether she’ll always be a girl waiting for life to happen or a woman who’s ready to commit to her best catch.
My point of view:
This book was so much fun, honestly! I was laughing out loud so many times I lost count! I love how Allison deals with everything around her spinning off kilter…she just manages to roll with the punches. The humor Lindi gives this character is amazing, I could so see myself saying (thinking) the same things! Allison makes a wonderful heroine, and Austin keeps her on her toes as her leading man….or he is just her good friend? Honestly, the book keeps you guessing how it really will end the whole time….in a good way, of course!
The supporting line up, er characters (little baseball humor there, hahaha) are not to be left out either. Allison’s mom is a hoot, I love her funny manners and independent ways! Grandma had her moments as well! Allison’s friends – close and not so close – are adorable, and almost deserve a story all to themselves!
I am so glad I had the chance to read this book, the memories will definitely stay with me for a long time to come!
Lindi Peterson definitely believes happy endings are just the beginning. She lives out her real life romance with her husband in a small Georgia town. When she’s not writing, she loves to read, bowl and spend time with her family.
