5 out of 5 stars
The story Calling the Curveball: a Lawson Family Novel by Tracey Cramer-Kelly is a sports romance book. It is a story that hooked me in from the very beginning and I didn’t want to put it down until I had read the final page. It is an amazingly touching story with plenty of emotions. Mine went up and down the entire time that I read the book. There are times when my eyes were misty. This story has times that are heartbreaking and also heartwarming. I loved reading about the characters of Jamie Lawson and Kira Walker. Jamie is the local chiropractor after his dreams of playing baseball were dashed by an accident. He is a man that has not been in a serious relationship since his wife died. Then he sees Kira at a ball game he is the umpire for. Kira is a teacher. She is smart, beautiful, and caring. She is very attracted to Jamie when she first sees him. Is she thinking of just having a summer fling with him? These two seem right together. The attraction is there and undeniable. Is Jamie affecting Kira’s heart more than she is admitting? Jamie’s life is sometimes filled with guilt and grief. If he wants a future with Kira is he ready to let go of the past? Will these two find an HEA? Read this book to find out. The author does a wonderful job in making you feel the emotions that Jamie is going through and how his life is affected by his past. You find yourself wanting to heal the pain he is feeling. You also feel the emotions that Kira has from her point of view. I enjoyed reading how both Kira and Jamie banter back and forth as well as interacting with the other characters that are introduced. This is an amazing story that I highly recommend reading.
