About this ebook

In Texas, football isn't all fun and fanatics...it can be fatal.


Two years ago, I’d married for love.


Little had I known I was marrying into a threesome.


Now my wannabe ex is dead, and everybody thinks I did it.


Worse—I inherited everything…including the Roughriders, the NFL franchise the locals follow with a religious fervor bordering on a cult-like fanaticism.


Imagine, in Dallas, a woman, and worse, a Northerner, running their sainted team?


My name is Brinda Rose, and I’m a Jersey girl caught in the net of Southern pretense, privilege, and back-stabbing, with nary a rule book to guide me.


The whole city seems out for my blood.


But the NFL gave me 90 days to solve my pesky little legal issues and prove I am up to the task of running an NFL franchise. Big of them.


My pal, Lucky O’Toole sent reinforcements in the form of a long, tall, drink of Texas charm named Paxton Dane, although he’s as clueless as I am in the kind of voodoo needed to fend off the coffee-klatch of bored, bitter wives of the power brokers in town.


Intent on protecting their positions (even if it means defending the scum they married) they feast on newcomers with a piranha frenzy.


As if this wasn’t bad enough, I keep seeing flashes of a guy tailing me who looks a lot like my ex.


Could he be alive? The thought has me sleeping with a handgun and doubting my sanity.


With a fortune on the line and everyone from players, to coaches, to investors, to even my former father-in-law, hiding secrets and working angles, 90 days seems an impossibly short amount of time to solve my problems, and an impossibly long amount of time to stay alive.

Mrs. Austin Terry a.k.a. Brinda Rose's husband is dead. Someone shot him outside a strip club. Brinda is 30 years old and now owns everything her suppose to be ex-husband owned. That includes an NFL team that doesn't seem to be doing very well. The NFL has 'graciously' given her 90 days to prove she can run the team or sell! She may not be from Texas but the Jersey girl in her has proclaimed "Game on boys!" As she finds herself on the outside looking in with very few people she can trust and some, well MOST of them are even questionable. But can she prove she didn't 1) kill her husband, 2) find out whey he was killed and who did it, 3) get her football team ready, willing, and able to play? Enjoy this wonderfully written story with misfits, smart remarks, some swearing, and a little romance. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book. Hope there is more with Brinda in the works!

I loved reading this book! Brinda Rose inherits an NFL franchise after her ex-husband dies. Brinda only has 90 days to prove she can lead the team or she's out of business. Fast paced, funny as all get out, and Lucky plays a small part in the book which is a bonus for all the Lucky O'Toole fans. Loved reading this book.. Yet another winner for Deborah Coonts!

If you like a strong female character, this is your book. Brinda has inherited a professional football team from her late husband. Of course he was murdered so that is a problem. Given that football is a religion in Texas and is being looked at as the killer, she has to get up to speed quickly. I loved the LUCKY series and this one looks great too. I ordered all 3 parts on Amazon early and loved every part!
