I think this is my favorite, because it was my first, but I really do think this book has some funny scenes and heart thumping drama to boot. It is a book about lesbians coming together late in life, but it is so much more. Charlie and Decky deal with the highs of a new love affair and the lows of what happens to them after Decky's mother finds out. Lizzie, the mom, is a source of many laughs and quite a few gasps of disbelief. I just read it again. I laughed and cried. I am proud of this book.
I was really happy to see that this author now has an editor and has re-released some of her early books. The book was MUCH easier to read without all the typos and extra commas. I really liked the first half of the book, but then it sort of went off track for me. The characters became too over-the-top which made the whole story less believable to me. Although, I would love to see Decky's house!

At thirty-seven, Decky Bradshaw has had a pretty tranquil life. Decky has a job doing what she loves, which has paid so well that she is living more than comfortably, and she's in great health. All of this changes with a single touch on the softball field, from Charlie Warren, the new math teacher in town. Decky would have never thought that her someone special would end up being a woman. From their first meeting the two become inseparable and Decky soon finds out how mean a small town can be an ...more
Decky, successful author meets Charlie at a soft ball game. Charlie has just moved to the area to teach mathematics at the local university.

Decky has never been in love with woman before and Charlie has just left a 10 year lesbian relationship. Are either of them ready to commit to a relationship ?

Will they survive the stress of Charlie’s ex lover and Decky’s mum ?

This first published book from Rebecca Bradshaw already shows her mastery of characterisation and
setting. What starts off as a stra
This was a great read of a thirty something woman who finds herself in a dilemma about her heart. It comes as quite a surprise and it is a story of how she deals with her heart and her feelings! Great read!

Recommended to Darlene by: One of my womyn's groups.
The cover of the book drew me in. Water, the beach. That would have done it alone, but having read Waking Gray, R.E. Bradshaw is a new favorite author. So I had to see. Murder and mayhem, family, and love found unexpectantly, bigotry and court trials makes this a non-stop read. I can hardly wait to read others by/with Decky.
This was laugh out loud fun and filled with romance and suspense. You couldn't help liking every character in this book.
