My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Calling The Curveball: A Lawson Family Novel is the first book in a new series by Tracey Cramer-Kelly. This was the first time I had read any of this author’s work so was unsure what to expect. Reading the blurb, this looked like just the type of book that I would enjoy and I’m so glad that I gave this book a chance as I really, really enjoyed it.
Jamie Lawson still hasn’t got over the death of his wife in a car accident 6 years previously. He is crippled by guilt as he was the driver of the car and they were having an argument at the time. Injuries he sustained in the accident put an end to a professional baseball career so now he umpires instead.
While umpiring a game he meets the beautiful Kira Walker, a divorced teacher who is in town to spend the summer with her sister’s family.
To say there is an immediate attraction is an understatement but both are broken, especially Jamie. From here we have the most amazing angst filled story of 2 people who are obviously very attracted to each other but are being held back by their pasts.
I loved the characters of Jamie and Kira and I was very quickly drawn into their story. My heart broke for them on so many occasions and being the big softie that I am, tissues were required.
Be prepared to be taken on an amazing roller coaster journey filled with highs and lows. Added to this is Jamie’s awesome family members who we get to meet. I’m sure we will get to know this family much more in the remainder of this series. I already have the 2nd book on my kindle waiting for me and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for this intriguing family.
