Goodreads:  When life throws you a curve ball…

Venus deMarley has just been hit with a wild pitch. At forty she’s finally found the perfect fiance, when Sophie–the daughter she gave up for adoption twenty years ago–suddenly reappears. Venus has another crisis on her hands as well: her eccentric millionaire dad just died and willed her his pet project–a rag-tag minor league baseball team called the Bronx Cheers–if Venus and Sophie can reconcile and once again become a family. Venus knows diddly about sports, but Sophie’s a jock, unlike her glamorous mom. And after two decades apart, these two women know nothing about each other, and rarely agree on anything. But maybe–just maybe–they have more in common than they think….

Ope’s Opinion:  I had such a hard time caring about the characters in this book.  The writing seemed flat.  The foul language seemed to be used to often and in inappropriate places.   I just kept reading, but wasn’t attached to any feelings for anyone.  I thought the premise of the story sounded good when I read it.   The story line was very predictable, which in my opinion isn’t always bad, but I couldn’t even get into this enough to root for the happy ending.

Rating:  Two Chairs – I may have one friend who might like this book.
