HATCHER, ROBIN LEE
Nobody loves baseball more than ten-year-old Lyssa Sampson. Nobody. For as long as she can remember, she's had only one dream: to be a pitcher at the Little League World Series. But the widowed Coach Jenkins has other plans, and Lyssa has to do a little innocent scheming to make her dream come true. When Coach Jenkins appears to be interested in Lyssa's single mother, Terri, Lyssa sees an opportunity for a little matchmaking. Maybe her efforts will help her mother find happiness again-and give Lyssa a chance at her dream at the same time. But will Terri and Coach Jenkins let a ten-year-old deal with matters of the heart? Or will reason take over and spoil Lyssa's plan? Diamond Place, the third book in the Hart's Crossing series, is a heartwarming tale of hope, healing, and the power of love.
THIS SHORT NOVELLA MAKES A GENTLE, ROMANTIC READ. I FINISHED IT IN ONE SITTING WHILE WAITING AT THE DOCTOR'S OFFICE.
