Under the Lights

A Boys of Fall Novel, #1

This is a terrific first book in new series about a small town in New Hampshire facing economic hardships and members of a championship football team that return to help the current team. While this sounds like it will be all sweetness, light and good feelings, it is so much more than that. Friendships reform but with lives spiraling downward, hope may be the only thing they have going for them. Chase seems to have more problems than most with a business failing, strained relationships and needing to get his life back on track. Kelly is the coach’s daughter and only child. She’s a police officer in her hometown. Chase shouldn’t be attracted towards her and she should have lost her childhood crush. These two characters are superbly written. There ups and downs are realistic. It won’t take you long to get involved with Stewart Mills and it’s residents. If the rest of the books in the series are as good as this first one, I suspect this series will find itself on a lot of readers’ must buy list.

Chase is having what must be the worst day of his life. His girlfriend is back at his apartment moving out with her new boyfriend. His good friend and business partner has run off with all of their money. Suppliers are calling about bounced checks. So, when the phone rings once more, he really doesn’t want to pick it up. On the other end is his high school coach’s daughter, Kelly. Due to budget cuts the high school will not have a football team unless enough money is raised. Kelly and two friends have a 2 week fund raiser set up and they want members of the state championship team to come back and help. Chase finds himself agreeing but he does know what to expect. Maybe a 2 week vacation?
