When I read the book description of ‘Home Field’ I just knew this was a book I’d like to read. I love romance novels, and a romance novel about a professional athlete just sounded perfect. And that cover definitely made me want to read this book even more.

In ‘Home Field’ we meet young widow Julie Ellis. Julie lost her husband when he was employed in Afghanistan little over a year ago. The only thing that keeps Julie going is her beautiful young son. When Julie gets invited to go to a banquet, s

Laurie Winter’s Home Field is a deeply emotional read, one that will pull at your heartstrings and leave you wanting more of the Warriors of the Heart series.

From the very start of this book, I was pulled in, unable to put it down. I was gripped, and the more I read the more I fell in love with the story. The storyline was wonderful; the characters were amazing; the emotions were rich; the chemistry was palpable. In other words, it is what you would hope for from a romance read that hits you rig

This is my first time reading this author. I liked the premise. Being a Packer fan, I really liked the small town feel of the Warriors football team. I loved getting actual game time as part of the story!

Reagan and Julie have a cute first meeting and I could sense the draw between these two. Reagan is a good man and was very patient with Julie. A little over half way through, I was feeling pretty frustrated with Julie. I know grief is different with everyone but she really was tied in to the pa

It’s always a joy to read a really good book by a brand new author! Of course, it wasn’t without some shortcomings (really though, don’t most books have some?!), but the couple of things I thought could use some improving were pretty minor.

Julie Ellis fell in love with and married her high school sweetheart. Their marriage was cut devastatingly short when John, an Army Special Forces officer, was killed overseas. Now, one year later, Julie is doing her best to move on and raise her precocious se

Home Field was one of the best books that I have read this year. Laurie Winter captures her audiences heart and attention right from the very moment they flip the first page. Winters writes a beautiful story about Julie Ellis, a war widow who is trying to start over after losing the lover of her life who was killed in war. Trying to get answers on her husbands death consumes Julie, desperatly trying to find out how he was killed. Julie focuses her life around her son, who is passionate about foo ...more

This book was beautifully written and couldn't ask for more. Reagan was the typical nfl football star that didn't want a relationship just the fun, but when he met Julie at a banquet things started to heat between the two but Julie was always living in the past with her husband that died in war. The question is how or if she can move on and love again.

Warm and sweet

I really enjoyed this story. It had humor and warmth and sometimes I needed a Kleenex. The characters were people one could relate to. Great first book.
