Hangin' Out With Coach
on April 12, 2012
Someone certainly didn't like Coach (Rex) Meredith, that's for sure. He was wrapped in netting and left hanging from the soccer field's goal post. Many an enemy he might have had considering the various and sundry deals he had made to ensure the boys' playing time.
Was Francesca that naïve? She didn't exactly fall for the coach's sick advances but she was more interested in "not letting the `imported' grapes go to waste"- her excuse for drinking the proffered wine. Stretches believability a bit as she must have known the consequences of imbibing in alcohol and its `loosening' effects. And to think the coach! Yuk! So ya, she did fall for the coach after first falling for alcohol's beckoning.
This book has me laughing. Not out of humor but from the sheer stupidity of the way she fell for the dork's advances. Francesca backs herself into some pretty tight corners and fights to backpedal out from them. (She's pretty quick.)
Meet Officers Reardan and Winchester, a pair of tenacious bulldogs. Not quite as tenacious as patronizing female juvenile officer Armstrong. Armstrong is like a dog chewing on a bone and sucking out the marrow til there's nothing left.
An interesting story. One that will have the reader turning the pages as it did me. The ending? Well, let's just say it was a surprise. It did have me wondering `Huh?'
