“PitchPerfect” by LuAnn McLane did not fulfill my expectations. I liked the characters, but the premise of the story was lost on me. Mia is the daughter of a very rich man and decides that she needs to prove herself capable of handling her own life without the cushions of money and credit cards from her father. Her father sends an investigator to keep tabs on her unbeknownst to her. She meets a baseball player who is trying to make a comeback in the minor leagues. Cameron Patrick has a lot to prove. He needs to distance himself from the playboy image he established long ago and prove to his coach and team owner that he can handle himself and not get into trouble. Mia comes to Cricket Creek because that’s where her old battered used car died. In order to pay for repairs and lodging for herself, she takes a job as a waitress in the diner in town. She is a mess. First of all, she is unprepared for manual labor and secondly, she is having trouble keeping to the charade that she has made of her life. I finished the book, but was really not interested in it. I think for someone who just likes to read simple romance stories, this would be what you are looking for.
I received a free print copy of this book for my honest review from the publisher. The opinions expressed here are my own.
