Playing for Keeps-LuAnn McLane

Playing for Keeps

LuAnn McLane

Signet, Mar 1 2011, $6.99

ISBN 9780451232762

Former Major League baseball pitcher Noah Falcon turned actor has been fired from the soap opera he performed on.  Decided a respite is in order Noah goes back to his old Kentucky home after two decades away.

Olivia Lawson attended Cricket Creek High School with Noah; she never forgot that the star athlete ignored the bookworm except when she tutored him.  He does not want to ignore her now as he thinks the schoolteacher is beautiful and her voice sexy, but she knows from the tabloids he is a playboy.  As their attraction grows, they perform together on stage in a local production where she realizes he cares about the play, the people and the town.  The audience can see that love flows between them, but she still she fears his rejection once he goes back to Hollywood.

This Cricket Creek contemporary romance is a fun tale due to the brisk banter between the lead couple.  With a strong secondary cast mostly the townsfolk who encourage the protagonists as they fuss, fight and fall in love, fans will enjoy LuAnn McLane’s mantra that “There’s no place like home.”
