Review: The Perfect Score by Beth Albright

Title: The Perfect Score   
Author: Beth Albright     
Published: May 2014, Tule Publishing Group  
Format: E-book, 138 pages   
Source: Personal copy  

Ginny Bloom Hunnicutt is crawling back home to Cottonwood Cove Alabama, her promising CNN news-reporting career in shambles when an on-air flub cost her the job and cost CNN a lawsuit. Putting ego aside, she takes a position at the Chatterbox, the local weekly newspaper run by her mother, the town gossip. What’s a southern belle to do in a crisis but run home to her mama? But when a mysterious hot high school football coach rolls into town, Ginny’s luck begins to change. Seems he has more secrets than a shady politician and Ginny’s determined to dig up the truth, and write the story that will get her career back on track. Everyone knows in a small, southern town, nothing stays private.

But the more she delves into his past, the more she begins to fall for the former college football star. The coach’s star player has some secrets of his own and when Ginny uncovers it all, she must decide if she should reveal everything or follow her heart and protect the people she has grown to care for.

Author Beth Albright weaves a saucy southern tale filled with intrigue, romance and laugh out-loud comedy. From the bright lights of Friday night football to the darkened bedroom of unexpected lovers, it’s a richly layered story with more twists and turns--and mud--than an Alabama back road.

My thoughts: I fell in love with Beth Albright's writing when I read her Sassy Belles series and was excited to see she has a new book out. I find her books to be quick, fun reads full of that Southern charm.

I loved the characters in this book. Ginny lives by a great motto - family first - and is willing to do anything to help her mama keep her paper. She was quite the firecracker and I loved the relationship she had with both her mama and her sisters. I just laughed out loud at all the trouble those three could get themselves into!

The romance in this book is great - it's not at the forefront of the book, but does have it's fair share of time front and center. Right from the moment they meet, Ginny and Jared have some chemistry and it was fun to watch them figure out how to be together with everything else going on.

This was a great tide-over until Beth's new series, In Dixie, comes out and I am looking forward to reading that one. She just has such a fun way to her writing and she creates such fun characters. And that Southern charm - I just love it! It makes me want to pour a big glass of  sweet tea while reading her books!

  3. I haven't read any of her books yet, but I read all the reviews you have posted of books you have read of hers and I must get one to try. I don't mind when romance isn't to the forefront all the time.
