UK Publishing Date: 7 Jun 2016. 216 pages.
Interference is the third book in Sophia Henry’s Pilot Hockey series. It is a very short read at 216 pages and more of a novella – however this is reflected in the price. If you come to this book expecting a full on hockey romance then you might be a bit disappointed.
Jason Taylor is an ex hockey player. Not good enough to get into the NHL like his brother he now coaches high school hockey and has a day job in the police force. He is also the half-brother of Auden from the Delayed Penalty book. When he moves to Bridgewater to progress his career he isn’t expecting to do much other than work and play hockey.
Linden Meadows – known as Indie – is fiercely protective of her family and doesn’t back down from a fight so when she sees the new hockey coach picking on her little brother Damien she doesn’t hesitate to give him an earful. When she is pulled over for speeding on the way home from work she is amazed to find Coach Taylor in a Patrol Officer uniform. Their relationship has got off to a rather stormy start.
While this is quite a sweet story about a small town and the difficulty of maintaining relationships under close scrutiny there is very little hockey in this book. Fans of the previous books will be pleased to see Auden featuring quite regularly but this feels a bit light compared to the previous stories.
