bookshelves: lesbian, mystery
Read in July, 2011

Another Lauren Laurano mystery. This one's funnier, though terribly sad at the end. Cybill Shepherd plays a role, playing the role of Lauren in a TV movie being shot about the lesbian PI. Shepherd laments that she wished the TV character could be a lesbian. This all takes place before her L Word days. We're still in NYC, in the 1990s, before the AIDS crisis abated from the drug cocktails. The mystery involves searching for a woman who supposedly died 30 years before. That's all rather confusing and hard to keep track of, but has it's amusing moments. There's no life and death crisis for the PI, which is a refreshing change. I love her relationship with her wife, Kip. They actually fight! The city is overdescribed, I got tired of the need to name every store on every corner. But still enjoyed the search for a payphone in this pre-cell era. And now she's grasped technology and can dial up to her BBS and download "letters." Wow, not that long ago...
