Calling the Curveball: a Lawson Family Novel 3.5 stars
This is the first book in a new series and there are a lot of characters introduced in this book. This story has dysfunction and regrets and angst. It also has light moments – a dog who heckles an umpire, sweet romance and great friendships.
Purely personal opinion – I did not care for the male protagonist. I’m bummed too, because it caused me to feel differently about the entire book than I normally would. Honestly, I will absolutely stick with this series because I am interested in his brothers and their stories.
The story is well plotted and the characters are easily identifiable. There are absolutely redeeming threads in this story and while this particular story wasn’t for me, I WILL read more from this author.
