THE UMPIRE STRIKES BACK by Ron Luciano and David Fisher
Umpire Strikes Back - Ron Luciano

Ron Luciano tells of his experiences as an umpire in the minors and the American League then as a color analyst with the Game of the Week.


I have had this on my shelves for 39 years. I kept saying I was going to get to it. I have now finally gotten to it. And am I glad I did! It was so funny as he talks of being a talker on the field. I liked how he broke the chapters into playing positions. I loved the photos in the middle of the book. With baseball season coming up, and hearing about these players at the time and watching them on games and the news, I enjoyed myself. I liked how he talked of the changes in the game; and I even remember talk of orange baseballs. This is a trip down memory lane through the eyes of an umpire. It is still worth reading!

Audiobook Review - Rules Of Play
Rules of Play - Lane Hayes

This is book #2, in The Script Club series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading in order intended.


George is a scientist who drives an older vehicle that wants to die.  Aiden comes to his rescue however, and makes sure he can get a little more time out of the vehicle.  In the mean time - they find they have some things in common.


Aiden has always liked George and has just recently discovered what that meant and how much.  Choosing to spend more time together, they find a comfortable friendship that soon turns out to be so much  more.  The future for both is suddenly looking very bright.


I thought these characters were very sweet.  I listened to this and found myself hoping we will see this couple again.  The narrator made it an even better story as I was able to lay back and relax and just enjoy the book.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Double Play
Winning With Him - Lauren Blakely

This is book # 2 in the Men Of Summer series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  To avoid spoilers, and to get full enjoyment - I recommend reading the series in the order intended.


Declan has a new team and its far away from the love of his life.  When he runs into Grant its almost like their strangers.  Will he give him a second chance?


Grant knows he must focus and be the best he can be for his team.  He makes a point to get to know his teammates and be a better friend.  At night he still longs for the man that makes him whole.  Is it worth it to try again?


Grant is moving on. Declan is moving on. Can they find the courage to be together again?  This is an amazing installment for their story.  I cannot wait for the next book that is coming out soon.  I give this a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

East Van Saturday Night – Short Stories and a Novella

"...adventures were undertaken, friendships were forged, and character was created."

Download your copy now at




East Vancouver in the '50s and '60s was a low income, blue-collar neighbourhood. Kids grew up with minimum supervision. They left home in the morning, showed up for dinner, and were gone again until "the gun" sounded at 9 p.m. During the time away adventures were undertaken, friendships were forged, and character was created. East Van Rules was not only meant as a challenge, but also a code to live by.


These four short stories and novella highlight coming of age events; a ten-year-old playing for the elementary school softball championship, a teenage tough strutting his stuff at the local dance, a hippie youth hitchhiking across Canada during the Summer of Love.


Watershed moments told from a perspective that explains why you can take the boy out of East Van, but you'll never take East Van out of the boy.

STRIKE ZONE by Kate Angell
Strike Zone - Kate Angell

Brek and Taylor were engaged but she left him at the altar to guide a Thrill Seeker trip. He is now engaged to a quiet sedate woman which is what brings Taylor home. When they meet again Brek tries to show how little she means to him. He learns a lot of things--especially that she is still important to him.


Also Taylor's sister Eve who runs the Thrill Seekers office finds romance with Brek's teammate Sloan. He thinks he'll teach her but she teaches him what is means to truly love. When it looks like he might lose her he goes big.


I enjoyed this book. I liked Brek and Taylor. I loved Eve and watching her get the better of Sloan. The other secondary characters are also good. I'd like to see read of their stories especially Kasen (I hope he has one.)
