The Playbook by Maggie Jane Schuler
The Playbook picks up right where Up to Bat ended. We were left wondering what will happen with Sam. All of the questions you asked and waited anxiously to know the answers to are revealed but not everything will be as you expect. Maggie Jane Schuler does an amazing job of keeping the readers on their toes in this romantic suspense filled book.
I fell in love with Blake and Sam while reading book 1. I can relate to Sam’s innocence and instant love for Blake. My whole heart wants them to find their HEA. Their whirlwind romance compounded by the stress and drama surrounding the pair made me read on and on into the night just waiting to see who is responsible for the chaos. Who is causing the problems which seems to be following Sam where ever she goes?
My favorite part of this entire series is the relationship Sam has with her late brother, Mitch. Mitch was killed on 9/11 but he is still a strong presence in Sam’s life. Their time around the baseball field in Sam’s dreams aids in painting the picture the author is laying before you. The admiration Sam has for her big brother shines through even the darkest times. His guidance in those dreams helps piece together the story and understand Sam’s way of thinking.
I have no doubt the desire to solve the puzzle within this book will keep you turning pages.
Amazing ending to The Diamond Series. I can’t wait to read more from Maggie Jane Schuler.

It’s time to share another Red’s recommended author with you. Joz Maxel’s books were introduced to me when I first started my blog in January 2018. I have became a fan instantly. Let’s find out a bit more about Joz.
Hi Joz, Thanks for agreeing to stop by today. Let’s start with what Genre you write.
Genre: Contemporary Romance
1) When did you start writing ?
Joz: October of 2016
Red: Wow not too long ago. I’m glad I was able to find you. You know I love My Absolution. I have fangirled over you for the past year.
2) Do you have a favorite book that you have written?
Joz: Probably My Absolution because it was to prove to myself I could do it…and I did. And people actually like it.
Red: I am so glad you wrote it! LOVE THAT BOOK!
3) How about a favorite character from your books?
Joz: I don’t have a favourite because I love them all.
Red: OK, I will let that answer slide. It’s a good thing I love you or I would make you choose.
4) Do you have a specific way you choose the characters names?
Joz: Names are from characters in my favourite movies and kids’ names are usually what I had in the running to name my kids.
Red: What a great way to use those favorite names. I always wanted a girl name Aurora Rose. I have 4 sons. Aurora would not have worked for them. Maybe if I ever write a book I can use it.
4) What is your favorite part of being a published author?
Joz: Interacting with people all over the world.
Red: Like me.
