My thoughts: Home Field is a beautifully written story about a war widow who tries to start over after the love of her life was killed in action. Julie is so caught up in the details of her husband’s death and all she has left is her son. Julie puts her complete attention into her son, who loves football. She is encouraged to attend a dinner with the professional football team to honor war veterans. Julie finds herself seated next to a very handsome and charming football player named Reagan. The rest so to say is history. Overall, I found this to be a cute romantic read. **I received a complimentary copy in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.**
