“Nothing worth having is easy to get… ana Cutrere’s homecoming to Vancleave, Mississippi, is anything but dull. Before she’s even reached town, the beautiful young widow has a run-in with a stray cow, loses her son in the woods, rescues an injured fawn, and comes face-to-face with Grant Gonzales, her high school crush. Grant recently returned to town himself amid hushed controversy. His only plan: leave the corporate world behind and open a hunting reserve. Seeing Jana again ignites old memories . . . and a painful past.Tensions boil over when he learns exactly why she returned. Jana plans to convince her grandfather to develop a wildlife rescue center—dead center on the prime hunting property he promised to sell to Grant! Jana is determined to make a new start for herself and her two children—and willing to fight for it. With deadlines drawing near for the sale of the property and no decision from her grandfather, can Jana trust God with her and Grant’s future, or will explosive emotions and diametrically opposing views tear them apart?

I just finished Fair Game and what a wonderful story filled with some interesting characters. The story centers around Jana and Grant. Both grew up together. Grant came from a stable, loving family while Jana grew up in a sad, disfunctional family. She became wild and married a wild school mate. Had two beautiful children. Now widowed she comes back home to pursue her dream of researching wildlife while caring for sick ones. She plans to ask her grandfather for some of his property to put this wildlife sactuary. Enter Grant Gonzales. He has returned home after a bad business experience and has talked Jana grandfather into selling him the land for a hunting camp. Sparks fly between these two. They have a strong attraction but are so different in their views concerning wildlife. Their relationship becomes strained but because they are believers they try to handle it in a Godly way. Her children fall in love with Grant and he falls in love with them too. The story is filled with zippy dialog, great characters and kept me turning page after page to find out how it all comes out. You feel like you know the families when you get done with the story. I highly recommend this book if you like a light read with fun characters but a very real message.

Fair Game by Elizabeth White was a most enjoyable book to read. This was my first book of hers to read, but no doubt it will not be my last. I enjoyed the humor and knowledge in this book. I did not want to put it down!!!

Okay, so what's a 'red light read'? This book is so fantastic, I took it along on my errands. Didn't mind the line at the DMV, nor the 45-minute wait to see my doctor. When driving home, I didn't pray for traveling mercies, but for every traffic signal at every intersection to turn red so I could read a few more lines. THAT'S a red light book. Folks, this one's a winner. The perfect balance of faith and fun. Not preachy. Ms. White weaves in Christian beliefs with skill and finesse. The characters have depth and the story shows both sides of a sensitive issue without either overpowering the other. You can feel for both Jana (the wildlife rescue vet), and Grant (the champion hunter). Real conflict solved by each character giving a little, not sacrificing all of their beliefs for one another. As a literary agent (no, not Ms. White's) reading is my business. I read pages and pages and pages, and it ain't always fun! So it's a pleasure to pick up a book I don't HAVE to read, and love it so much I wished it were longer. 'Fair Game' is the first book of Ms. White's I've read, but it won't be the last. Snaps to you, Ms. White. If you're ever in the market for a literary agent, I'm available!

This was a really great book. It was fun to read about how opposite viewpoints clash. I love how the opening of the book is Jana hitting a cow. It's a funny, grab your attention opening and, for me at least, familiar since I went to a college where cow tipping was the norm. I'm not a vegan or even a vegetarian, but I tended to share Jana's viewpoints on animal treatment in this book. I'm all for eating meat but I hate the thought of shooting animals just for sport. Luckily the storyline doesn't take a one sided approach to the issue and shows the pros and cons from both Jana's and Grant's views. I also did like how the two were able to compromise and Jana was not portrayed as the type of character that gave up all her beliefs just to get the guy. All of the characters weremulti -dimensional and I enjoyed meeting all the members of both Jana's and Grant's families. They certainly added a lot of spunk to the story, especially Jana's children. I kind of wish there was more back story about her ex-husband, it doesn't seem that we know his complete story or what really happened to him. Other than that small hiccup, I really enjoyed reading this book. I learned a lot about animals too during this book, so it was a learning experience as well as a fun read. This was my first Elizabeth White book, and I have definitely now become a fan!

Fair Game is a charming story of two people dealing with the ups and downs of small town life, past hurts, and uncertain futures. Elizabeth White breathes life into a cast of likeable, quirky characters. The enjoyable escape was hard to put down, while reiterating the importance of seeking God's face in all we do. You're gonna love this joyride.

This is the first book by Elizabeth White that I¿ve read, and I read it in one, very enjoyable sitting. Fair Game is a well written, funny book full of characters you'll love, characters who are far from one-dimensional, characters with enough flaws and foibles to endear them to the reader. They all spring to life in settings that I could almost feel and smell - the woods of the deep south near the coast, a veterinary clinic, a small town feed store that took me right back to my growing up years. Elizabeth does an excellent job of weaving in Grant's and Jana's desire to please God and their all-too-human struggles to figure out the best way to do that, and she does it without being preachy. You will enjoy this book!

Once again Elizabeth White has written a 'can't put it down, till I'm through' book. If you enjoyed her novelettes about the Gonzales family you will be glad to know that several of the characters are written into the pages of Fair Game. Grant Gonzales is an avid hunter who meets Jana Cutrere, a veterinarian who wants to start a wildlife rescue on her grandfather's land. The same land that Grant Gonzales wants to buy for a hunting camp. White's sense of humor shines through in this book. I really enjoyed the chapter about the fishing boat incident. It brought back funny memories of when my uncle took me water skiing with his boat. She also has the ability to weave a story about how two people are trying to seek God's will for their lives. If you loved reading White's other books you won't want to miss this one, and if you've never read anything by her before this is the book to pick up.
