Well done mystery with interesting plot and bad guys, but a little lacking on the romance side and weak at the end.

STORY BRIEF:

While waiting for the negative publicity to die down, her boss sends her to Gilbeytown for three weeks to do a story on the Beavers, a struggling independent baseball team.

As a female reporting on sports, she has to try harder at her job, especially when it comes to her boss, Skinny Martin, as well as her father, whom she calls Coach. When a national tabloid puts a risqué picture of J.T. in the locker room with two baseball players on their front page, Skinny is ready to fire her. Instead, he sends her on location to Gilbeytown, Pennsylvania to cover the town's baseball team, t...more

Great read overall. It was honestly pretty vanilla as far as the sex went and only mildly steamy but I liked the connection that JT and Tommy B had. JT is trying to make her way in national sports writing and is having trouble being taken seriously because she's a female in a male dominated environment. She gets sent to Gilbeytown on assignment as punishment and finds potential scoops in both Tommy B's presence in small town Gilbeytown, as well as all the mysterious accidents happening to sabota...more

DNF is my "can't finish" tag, in case people are wondering. My tragic problem with sports romance, especially with baseball, is that I know too much about sports. It's too bad Chris Coste's "The 33-Year-Old Rookie" was published about the same time as this book, because the author could have learnt something by reading it. Also, she could have derived some positive benefit by reading links at Baseball Think Factory, or Joe Posnanski's blog, or something that indicated research in some depth on w...more

funny, poignant and just purely amazing.

Over all, it was a good read. The story began a little slow, but as the book progressed. It was quite a read. The plot line was well developed and the writing style was pretty good. The overall story was pretty cute. The characters were quite developed and interesting. There was a bit of action, suspense, and a few steamy scenes. However, I thought the romance could have been stronger. The ending was also a bit weak. But, overall a good read.

First book by this author I've read. I'm a lover of books with a sports-related storyline. Baseball was the sport and I found the characters, both main and secondary, delightful. A really good book filled with baseball dialogue, a crime to be solved, and a sports-writer and major league baseball pitcher whose chemistry was amazing!
For anyone who loves a great sports storyline, I would highly recommend this book by Gemma Bruce.

I really enjoyed this book. It took me a while to get into it, but once I got to that point, I was hooked. I really felt for the characters and everything that they were going through.

I couldn't finish this one. Too predictable from page 1. Read the first three chapters, and the last couple of pages and figured I didn't miss anything. You can skip this one.
