Book Review Her Best Catch by Lindi Peterson
Allison Doll’s mother is rebelliously turning fifty, her two best friends have started dating and a gorgeous injured relief pitcher has joined her Sunday school class rocking her world into confusion, heartache and temptation, places she hasn’t visited in a long time, much less all at once.
But with the help of family, old friends she really hasn’t lost, a new friend she really can count on, and God, she finds herself no longer a girl waiting for life to happen, but a girl who’s ready to commit to her best catch!
I won this book earlier this year and after reading a blog post by Lindi decided I needed to read this book.
The book is in the first person which is different from most books I read as the whole books is from her point of view. Allison is dealing with a mother turning fifty, and her two best friends have started dating leaving her feeling the 3rd wheel. Into her Sunday school class walks Ashton who is a injured releif pitcher for the Atlanta Braves. We see Allison and Ashton develop a friendship which has some issues in itself as Allison isn't quite sure what the relationship is. She also has some issues stemming from her father being a salesman and often on the road. This is an interesting story which I did enjoy. We see how someone deals
with being a single when friends are a couple and redefining a friendship.
