Conway author associates romance and sports in new book

This week marks the nationwide release of “Pickle Juice, Diamonds, and Football” by author Feather Linn. The book chronicles the life of Laura Jane Spindlewood where she operates in a world of routines and responsibilities.

Spindlewood manages her father’s baseball team, stays on top of her schoolwork, and when there is time, hangs out with her friend, Meredith. Analytical to a fault, the strawberry blonde never takes notice of the athletes surrounding her until one afternoon when she meets a football player who introduces himself as BJ. Drawn to him like a magnet, Spindlewood soon discovers that the mysterious person is hometown hero, and now NFL-rookie, Blaze Jenkins. Though their relationship is kept quiet for months, she soon finds herself in the crosshairs of a malevolent blogger obsessed with ruining Blaze’s burgeoning career. With rumors spreading like wildfire through the pages of “Pickle Juice, Diamonds, and Football,” Spindlewood is compelled to make a decision that will stir up stories all over again. This time though, she hopes to be the one controlling the flame.
