Welcome Home, Caroline Kline is a debut novel that’s equal parts heartwarming and hilarious. Courtney Preiss’ gem of a book takes you on a journey back to the Jersey Shore, where second chances come with a side of sand and softball.

Meet Caroline Kline—our spirited heroine who’s having a bit of a meltdown in the big city. After a breakup that leaves her life in shambles, she’s back at square one: no job, no apartment, and no idea what’s next. Then, her dad, Leo, gets hurt. But hold up, he doesn’t want Caroline to play babysitter—he needs her to step up to the plate, literally, as the third baseman for his men’s softball league. And not just any season, folks. This is THE season, the one where they might just clinch the World Series of Glen Brook, New Jersey.

Caroline heads back to her hometown, even though she was desperate to leave it behind.

She’s the first female player in the league, facing lots of challenges and old-school attitudes. And just when you think things couldn’t get more interesting, in walks her old crush, her first love, stirring up all kinds of feelings she thought she left behind. Welcome Home, Caroline Kline isn’t just about finding love or mastering the perfect swing; it’s a witty, insightful exploration of the detours life throws at us and the unexpected places they can lead.

Caroline’s journey is packed with laugh-out-loud moments, heartfelt reflections, and a nostalgic nod to the quirky charm of hometown life.

Courtney Preiss paints a vivid picture of Glen Brook with characters so real you’ll feel like you’re part of the local softball team, rooting from the stands with a foam finger and a slushy. It’s a tribute to the unconventional paths to victory and recovery, reminding us that sometimes, the home run you didn’t see coming is the sweetest of them all.

Get ready to fall in love with Caroline Kline. She’s not just striking out—she’s knocking it out of the park!
