Review:In Her Court (Camp Firefly Falls #18) by Tamsen Parker

Newly minted professor Evangeline “Van” Thompson’s academic dreams have turned into nightmares. She can’t wait to escape the pressure cooker of the university to spend the summer at Camp Firefly Falls with her bestie, Nate.

Unfortunately, Nate breaks his leg halfway through the season, and his little sister Willa fills in for him as resident tennis instructor. Van has fond memories of the blonde moppet, but when Willa shows up at camp, she’s not so little anymore. She’s grown into a bombshell and a menace on the tennis court—why do those skirts have to be so short, anyway?

Willa Carter has had a crush on Van Thompson since the third grade but Van’s always been more interested in hanging out with Willa’s older brother. Not much seems to have changed—Van’s managing the camp’s web presence while Willa rocks her tennis whites.

Camp will be closing in a few weeks, and Van’s barely spoken to Willa despite sharing a cabin. But when the two get thrown together to plan the last session of camp, s’mores might not be the only thing getting sticky and sweet before the season’s out…

What I thought about In Her Court
PhD candidate Willa is dealing with the disappointment of a canceled research trip when she's called to help our her brother Nate. Nate had a job as tennis coach at a summer camp when he ends up with a broken leg. He asks Willa to step in for him, and bonus, she can just take his bed.

Nate is sharing a cabin with his best friend, Van. (Van is short for Evangeline. I must admit I tripped over this name every single time -- for some reason, my brain just didn't associate Van with a female, which I'll admit took a little out of the story for me.)  Back to the story.

Willa has always had a secret crush on Van. Van looks at Willa as her best friend's LITTLE sister, emphasis on younger. She immediately dreads this new arrangement. She's in for a shock when Willa shows up.  Willa tries to connect with Van via their shared academic interests and Van just doesn't want anything to do with her. It all starts out a bit awkward and grows into a steamy f/f romance.

There's the typical low-stakes drama that you might expect with the brother's younger sister trope, and there's some very cute, geeky cosplay and movie references and games. It's all a very steamy and sweet summer camp story.

In Her Court is part of the Camp Firefly Falls series, a fictional sleep away camp for grownups set in the Berkshires and works well as a standalone.
