Coach Maddie and the Marine is my first book by Blaire Edens. This is a well written book. I loved the characters and their interaction with each other.

I am so glad that this story deals with a military family and depicts some of what the kids of deployed parents have to go through. Maddie is a young lady that has taken on the role of being the soul provider for her nephew while his mom is deployed. This is a huge responsibility for someone that... ...more

Maddie Westerfield gave her heart away once and it was completely disintegrated, when the man she loved was killed in a combat mission. From that point on she made the decision to never let love in again, or give her heart away to another soldier. Her little plan has been relatively easy to accom... ...more

This triggers her memories of the Marines telling her that her husband was dead. Where is her nephew? She can't decide what to do first. After panicking she goes ba... ...more

By Kelley December 28, 2015

This is a short, quick read. Overall, I enjoyed the story. However, I felt things between Maddie and David seemed a little rushed. Also, I would've liked to have seen a little more interaction with Andrew's football team to create some humor and to add more of Maddie and David together along with... ...more

It was a good read. I liked both Maddie and David's characters and story was also good. Although the book has more serious tone than I expected but it is no less interesting. War changes people and the story has tried to capture the internal struggles of those who have been directly effected by i... ...more

About the author

USA Today Best Selling Author

Blaire Edens

Blaire Edens lives in the mountains of North Carolina. She grew up on a farm that's been in her family since 1790. Of Scottish descent, her most famous ancestor, John Comyn, Lord of Badenoch and Guardian of Scotland, was murdered by Robert the Bruce on the altar of the Greyfriars Church at Dumfries. She has a degree in Horticulture from Clemson University. She's held a myriad of jobs including television reporter, GPS map creator, and personal assistant to a fellow who was rich enough to pay someone to pick up the dry cleaning. When she's not plotting, she's busy knitting, running, or listening to the Blues. Blaire loves iced tea with mint, hand-stitched quilts, and yarn stores. She refuses to eat anything that mixes chocolate and peanut butter or apple and cinnamon. She's generally nice to her mother, tries to remember not to smack her bubble gum, and only speeds when no one's looking.
