Eagle RiverEagle River by Isabelle Kane
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Eagle River is a New Adult sports themed romance set in and around Wisconsin and revolves around the sport of American football.

Kjersten and Galen were school sweethearts but broke up when Galen’s mother died. Unable to deal with the loss Galen cut Kjersten off, but never forgot her. When he sees her with a rival football star at a local fair, Galen’s jealousy rockets. He vows to apply to a college away from Kjersten.

Galen’s father is a disabled drunk, but Galen’s always had lots of support from his football coach, a man troubled by a secret he holds. At coach’s wedding, Galen and Kjersten are brought together once more, but their relationship path is still a rocky one, just how many times can a girl be left dangling before she walks away?

This storyline theme is a popular one, with high spirited players and a love triangle. I would like to see it have another run through editing to iron out areas with clunky dialogue, typos and areas where it needs it a bit of a polish to make it more of an enjoyable read.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A detective story with humour, a loveable arrogant main man, a mysterious fellow who could have been God or just a wise man? Set in sunny LA, we’ve just had our first fall of snow this year, so the warm Californian air appeals to me greatly this morning!The American football theme got on my nerves a little, but that’s just a female reader talking!It helped set the characters off.There are more books in the series too.
