Review of O Captain! My Captain! by V.L. Locey
O Captain! My Captain! by V.L. Locey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I absolutely adored O Captain! My Captain! As Maggie has been with the series since book one, it was nice to see her get her second chance at happiness. That she went the way of her predecessors and fell for a Wildcat makes one wonder what’s in the water at that newspaper for geez sake.
Although I was already familiar with Maggie’s character from the previous two books, I was not prepared to learn exactly how rough she had had it. She’s been a single mom for the past ten years, which she is grateful for because she was able to get out of the abusive marriage she was in. As her story unfolds, you can’t help but feel bad for her as life just seems to be handing her one serving of crap pie after another. Fortunately the light at the end of the tunnel appears in the form of Derrick Andersson. The Wildcats captain is everything she wants in a man but never thought she’d get considering she was a single mother of one rather surly teenage boy.
One of the many things I loved about this book was that Maggie and Derrick are adults in their 40s and they’re portrayed realistically with aches and pains from their career (Derrick) and aging. It made it so easy to connect with them. As Ms. Locey does such a great job of infusing the book with humor, I not only got to fall in love with the couple but I got to do so while laughing frequently. O Captain! My Captain! is an excellent addition to the To Love a Wildcat series and I am sooooo looking forward to the next book.
I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
