Fair Play by Deeanne Gist ~ Review

Lucie's Review:

Billy is a lady, and not just a lady, but a lady doctor scheduled to speak at the World's Fair.
Hunter is a Texas Ranger working as a guard. But while he's working he starts having abdominal pains, so his buddy takes him into the clinic where he meets Billy. Let's just say that he was not expecting a woman doctor.
When Hunter finds an abandoned baby at the fair, he brings the baby to Billy, and together they take him to Hull House. Along the way the trip opens their eyes to the vast differences between real life and the fantastical world inside the fair.

Both Billy and Hunter are strong compassionate character. They interact naturally with each other, and their relationship grows as they work together to build a safe place for children to play.

But there are twists and turns in the plot, and all does not turn out as one would expect. This book does deal with more mature themes, so I would not recommend this book for young teens, however the tough things in this book allow the characters to show their true mettle.

Billy is a determined young woman, who put herself through medical school, she is used to charging into every situation and challenging every opponent. She is not used to asking for help, and is used to defending her independence.

Overall, this is a great story that takes a closer look at the World's Fair, including many historical moments and characters woven into an engaging plot. With sprinkles of humor and deja vu moments throughout. A great new book from Deeanne Gist!
