New York socialite Goldie Fischer seems to have it all: wealth, beauty, and a fiancĂ© to die for. Until she’s murdered on her wedding night by a jealous witch and instantaneously loses everything. Angry and seeking revenge, Goldie becomes a dybbukher soul possesses the body of Southern football hero Clay Harper and she refuses to join the light until the wrongs are rectified.

Only Clay has issues of his own and doesn’t take kindly to a petulant New Yorker in his head, interfering in his already messed up life. When Goldie promises to leave if Clay helps her break up the wedding between her fiancĂ© and the witch who killed her, Clay reluctantly agrees. Only neither of them is prepared for the chain of events that follow.

Through the journey of two disparate people on a quest to make things right, Touchdown is a funny yet heartbreaking look about what it takes to truly know another soul and what it means to love


If there is ONE book this past 6 months that I've read, that NEEDS to be a short term seriialized movie, this is it! It has everything- love, drama, heartache, betrayal, God, good versus evil, best friends, North versus South and the aforementioned football. Seriously- you know you'd watch the premier episode at least, out of curiosity, right? But trust me, you would be staying put! Yael has crafted a novel that is hysterically funny with the whole role reversal elements, with nuances of characters and maturation, and finally proof that love conquers all. I couldn't put this book down once I started it, and you will too once you start reading it!
