Gist adeptly balances flirty banter with gut-wrenching conversations, so that "Fair Play" draws equal attention to the despicable plight of Chicago's poorest. Don't miss the author's notes at the end of the book or her beautiful documented photographs that lend accuracy to the setting. I am in a book club reading "It Happened at the Fair" later this year; I don't think it will take much persuasion to add "Fair Play" to our reading list!
The plot was great and I enjoyed all of the historical details. It's a really good novel that keeps your attention.
Rating: PG-13 (innuendos)
We do know DeeAnne Gist has moved over to the secular market. But to include just a small amount of Christianity in this book muddies the waters. And the hero doesn't appear to have much of a spiritual arc. I'm a CBA reader and have read every one of DeeAnne's books before this one. It is the first novel I am disappointed in. Am not sure if I will continue to read her work but she is very talented. I really don't want to read fiction that doesn't have a Christian story arc in it and as an author I only writer stories with a strong spiritual arc. That being said, I think this work should appeal hugely to people looking for a clean romance in secular fiction.
I had already purchased the prequel to this book, read it, and enjoyed it. (Disclosure, I received an electronic copy of this book through Net Galley for my unbiased review.) I also purchased a paperback copy of this book for a blog giveaway. I'd have been disappointed if I'd purchased both the prequel and the book and discovered the prequel story was in Fair Play at the beginning. Also, the epilogue at the end of the novel felt like a "tacked on" ending and isn't at all what I've seen in her other books and I found it somewhat jarring. It just didn't work for me.
