Harper and Brook are starting their first year of marriage in Seattle (and of course, Blitz is there, too) and Brook is coaching for the Seattle State Sounds. Harper lacks a focused career, but her up and coming Team Stitches is certainly on the rise. Old friends intermix with new ones and Harper and Brook face various challenges as they try to acclimate to life in Seattle.
Some of the plot twists were a bit lost on me, but I liked how the book wrapped up in the end!
During a dinner at Brook’s boss’ house, Harper and Witney (another of the wives), get pushed into joining a new fantasy football league. The Real Coach’s Wives of Seattle is run by Angie O’Dwyer, the wife of Brook’s boss. This throws Harper and Witney together and they become firm friends.
As with previous books in this Queen of the League series, the chapters have a score tally and run-down on the progress of the leagues that Harper has joined. It’s a fun and different addition which works well.
JJ makes more of an appearance in this book than in the previous two. An ex-colleague of Harper, and friend to Brook, JJ shows up in Seattle looking to stay with them. There’s an air of mystery to why he’s visiting and Harper tries her best to get to the bottom of it. JJ isn’t the most reliable or trustworthy of people. I’d had my reservations about him before and they resurfaced in this third instalment. For all his faults, JJ is Brook’s friend and that shines through. He steps up to the plate and supports Harper in her hour of need, redeeming himself. I loved JJ’s ‘sofa king.’ I caught on immediately but it took Harper and Brook an age to figure it out. I won’t go any further on ‘sofa king’ but once you read it, you’ll know what it refers to. I might even use it myself!
There are plenty of new characters to get to know – a few of which sounded off alarm bells. Again, I don’t want to spoil the surprise or plot line, but you’ll know who they are when you come across them.
Team Stitches, Harper and Amelia’s online boutique selling knitted and crocheted garments, also make a comeback. They work hard to make the business a success despite no longer living in the same State as each other. It’s not easy for them but with a little help from a surprise stranger, things move full steam ahead.
Although the book probably falls into the category of chick-lit, it has some current topics running through it. In today’s society sexual harassment occurs. It always has done. The difference being that the victims are now coming forward, standing up and saying ‘hey, this has happened to me, and it’s not acceptable.’ It was an excellent addition that drills the message home that sexual harassment is not okay and will not be tolerated. Well done to Laura Chapman for bringing the subject up and putting that message out there.
I’m not giving away the ending, so you’ll have to read it for yourself. The whole story from start to finish had me captivated. I couldn’t put it down. It’s a brilliant third instalment in the Queen of the League series. Here’s hoping for a fourth!

Having read the first two books in the Queen of the League series, I was looking forward to catching up with Harper, to see what life had in store for her and her crew. One thing is for sure: it’s never a dull moment! Although Harper finds herself stuck in a job that she’s less than enthusiastic about, what’s going on in her personal life and other external conflicts really add to the chaos in her world. Particularly when one of Brook’s good friends shows up out of nowhere. Or when Brook’s employers do all they can to stir the pot.
And speaking of bad bosses… Harper never would have imagined she’d find herself in such a tough compromising position. Brooke’s job is very important to him, to the both of them. When his boss crosses a line that should have never even been embarked upon to begin with, she’s not sure which direction she should go in, who she should talk to, or if she should say anything at all. I really liked how Laura Chapman approached this- I felt as though it was a very real and honest look at how a woman, in this case Harper, feels when stuck in the middle of a bad situation.
I could see just how much growth Harper has had since First & Goal and Going for Two. It wasn’t so long ago that she’d been single, and while she enjoyed and appreciated her life as a single woman, it was like her story really began when she met Brooke, because she discovered so much more about herself. Fast forward to the present, moving out of state, starting over where she doesn’t know anyone, and having conversations with Brooke about potentially starting a family. Is she even ready for such a huge commitment? Are either of them?
And as always, there are layers of fantasy football league scenarios- while I haven’t signed up with any league as of yet, every time I read one of Laura’s novels, I always feel this immense need to do so! She makes it sound so fun, and I love that it showcases how fantasy football isn’t just a man’s game. What an awesome way to empower everyone into being part of something they enjoy. Three & Out is definitely a big win in my book for Team Chapman!
