In previous books, author Taylor Jenkins Reid has explored old Hollywood, rock music, surfers and supermodels

Her newest novel, “Carrie Soto Is Back,” takes us deep into the world of professional tennis

It’s likely no coincidence that its release date coincides with the start of the U.S. Open in New York City

The novel’s title character is a driven athlete coached by her father, Javier

Interspersed within the main story are ESPN-style reports and, of course, a love story

It’s all seamless and stunningly told

Taylor Jenkins Reid also will appreciate several Easter eggs that hint back to previous novels
