Staff Reviews


Evvie Drake is a young widow done grieving the death of her husband because, frankly, he wasn’t a nice guy. Dean Tenney, a famous “has been” pro baseball pitcher, has a serous case of the yips (yes, this is a real condition!). When Dean rents the apartment in Evvie’s house they become fast friends and experience several curve balls life throws at them.

NPR’s Linda Holmes has written an intelligent, heartfelt novel about loss, love and starting over. A truly refreshing read!

“Evvie Drake is young and newly widowed, but no one knows that on the day her husband died, she had finally worked up the nerve to leave him. Dean Tenney is a major league baseball pitcher who has inexplicably lost the talent that made him a star. When Dean moves to Evvie’s small town to escape the humiliating sports headlines, their friendship proves to be just what both of them need. This is an absolute treasure of a novel — big-hearted, funny, sweet, and utterly satisfying. I cannot wait to sell this charming gem.”
