Product Description

Saddled with a man's name, the captivating Billy Jack Tate makes no apologies for taking on a man's profession. As a doctor at the 1893 Chicago World's Fair, she is one step closer to having her very own medical practice-until Hunter Scott asks her to give it all up to become his wife.

Hunter is one of the elite. A Texas Ranger and World's Fair guard specifically chosen for his height, physique, character, and skill. Hailed as the toughest man west of any place east, he has no patience for big cities and women who think they belong anywhere but home.

    I liked the historical aspect and the pictures, but that was it. I felt like the only thing Hunter was interested in was getting into Dr. Billy's pants. Where was God in this book? I will not recommend this book, and I will not reread it.

    I opened this book late in the evening.

    I should really know better by now. I mean, I'm such a sucker for cute historical romance, so needless to say... I didn't get a lot of sleep that night. Now, although I read it on a somewhat sleep-deprived brain, I can honestly say that I loved it and considering I've read almost everything Deeanne Gist has ever wrote, it's a pretty big deal when I say that this book was one of her best. Not only was it well-written, romantic and sweet, but it also had a lot of depth to it.

    The only warning I have for you is that it wasn't overly Christian. If you're looking for a novel that screams Jesus from the rooftops, then you won't be satisfied with this book. I'm thinking Deeanne is veering more into the historical fiction rather then the "Christian fiction" label, because although the story mentioned God, faith didn't play a key role.

    Other then that, it was great! I highly recommend it to all you ladies who would love a good romance between the stubborn feminist doctor and the handsome Texas Ranger. Our male protagonist was quiet dashing, and I enjoyed getting to know both him and our heroine.

    Did not enjoy this book. I look forward to reading Deanne Gist's books, but was surprised to find that I did not like the story line or the characters in Fair Play.

    This review was written for Fair Play.
    Despite the name, Dr Billy Jack Tate is a woman. A woman doctor, in 1893 Chicago. She is offered a job as a doctor in the infirmary at the Woman's Building at the Chicago World's Fair. She meets Hunter Scott, Texas Ranger employed at the Fair in the Columbian Guard. The two get closer when Hunter finds an abandoned baby, and the two of them take it to Hall House, a home for foundlings on the outskirts of the slum district. As they get to know the area, they decide to work together to build a playground so the local children have a safe place to play.

    A huge amount of research has gone into the writing of Fair Play, as is evident from the authentic photographs at the beginning of each chapter. This authenticity was one of the strengths of the story, as it made it so much easier to see the deprivation in the slums, and the contrast between rich and poor. It was also gratifying to read at the end that many of the plot points, including the playground, were based on historical records.

    I also liked the characters. Both Billy and Hunter were intelligent and ambitious, and both had a certainty in their occupational calling that provided some interesting misunderstandings. This was tempered by genuine caring for the plight of the poor _ and each other.

    Fair Play is a standalone novel, but is loosely related to It Happened at the Fair, also based at the World's Fair. It is published by Howard Books, a Christian imprint, but I have to say that the content is more clean general-market romance than Christian, as there is no overt faith element. That's a disadvantage for those looking for some Christian in their Christian fiction, but will be seen as an advantage by those who find some Christian fiction too preachy. However, it has all Deanne Gist's trademark passion and I'm sure her fans will enjoy it.

    Thanks to Howard Books and NetGalley for providing a free ebook for review.
