Going for Two (Queen of the League, #2)

About the book – from Goodreads: 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.
In honor of Going for Two’s release, I’m sharing some fun facts about the book and Queen of the League series.
Food can play an important part in a story. A lot can happen when people meet together to break bread. When I write a dish into one of my books, I like to know what exactly it would look like and how it would taste, whether or not those details make it into the scene. It can make a difference. Like, would someone really be able to go running only five minutes after eating a super heavy, cheesy dish? Probably not without spilling their cookies. With Harper hosting a number of football watch parties in Going for Two, and her being a hostess with the most-est, I needed a reserve of recipes for her to make to serve to the masses. This Spinach Dip is one of my favorite game day recipes, and it’s super easy to make thanks to the help of a slow cooker.
I hope you will check out the other facts—view a complete listing of locations and dates on my website, www.laurachapmanbooks.com—and the series.
Thank you, Chrissy, for featuring Going for Two—and me—today. Enjoy!
