REVIEW: Turnabout's Fair Play by Kaye Dacus

Kaye Dacus’ “Turnabout’s Fair Play” is a wonderful novel! Jamie O’Connor just lost his job in sports marketing, and it sets him on a path of self-discovery. Flannery McNeill thinks Jamie is an arrogant jerk. But when they fall victim to their grandparents’ matchmaking efforts, Flannery learns that things aren’t always what they seem. And as she accompanies Jamie down this path, she learns that she’s dropped a few things on her own road to professional success.

This novel reminds me of the twisted comedic plots of Shakespeare. As Jamie and Flannery are being set up by their Grandparents, these young people return the favor. Arranging ways to spend time together to set up their Grandparents, these matchmakers have created a double-dose of romance. “Turnabout’s Fair Play” is a heart-warming, chivalrous romance that plucks the heart strings.
