Going For Two by Laura Chapman (Book Release Day Event)

In association with author Laura Chapman and publisher Marching Ink, Jersey Girl Book Reviews is pleased to host the book release day event for Going For Two!

In honor of Going for Two’s release, I’m sharing some fun facts about the book and Queen of the League series.

Though I’ve mentioned some football teams by name—the Nebraska Cornhuskers and Green Bay Packers—in the Queen of the League series, I wanted to shy away from focusing on any real players or real teams for specifics. Knowing how big of a part Brook’s high school team would play, I created a fake one: the Lincoln West Warriors. Even though all of the people associated with the school and team are completely fictional, I did throw in a few details from my own high school: the Millard West Wildcats. Both of our schools have green and black as our colors—though our other accent was gold while the Warriors are silver. Like a lot of the little things in these books, it’s a small tribute to my past.

I hope you will check out the other facts—view a complete listing of locations and dates on my website,—and the series.

Thank you, Kathleen, for featuring Going for Two—and me—today. Enjoy!

About the Book
Harper Duquaine is back for another season of fantasy football! This time she’s a year wiser and prepared to dominate the league. But while she finally seems to have her fantasy life in order, reality proves more challenging.

Her plans to peacefully play house with her boyfriend come to a halt when the high school suddenly names Brook its head football coach. The promotion comes with more responsibility on the field and less time at home. It also unexpectedly means more work for Harper, who already has her hands full helping a friend pull off the perfect proposal (while dodging questions about when she and Brook are going to get hitched already). Plus, a new development at work could leave her—and half of the fantasy league—jobless.

With the complications of her career and being “Mrs. Coach” adding up, Harper wonders if she’s committed to the life she’s already building or if there is something else out there.
