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!

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

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.
