Loved this. An easy read, with characters you can relate to. I recently discovered Georgia Beers as an author and read every one of her books within a couple of weeks! They are all well written and easy to lose yourself in. Refreshing to find some lesbian fiction that isn't just erotica!

I love this novel but I liked the cover of the first edition better!

This is my first Georgia Beers book and it won’t be my last. This is a sweet coming out story, the kind where a character falls in love for the first time with someone of their own sex. Just the kind I really like.

What I liked: Melanie is at a turning point in her life and is in limbo about what she’ll do. Until this point, she’s focused solely on her career, putting love on the back burner. As far as she knows, she’s straight, until she meets Taylor. What I loved is that how she falls for Taylo

A sweet story...a characteristic of many of this writer's style. Unlike many come out book experiences where the turmoils of acceptance comes to play this was descriptively short with pretty clear feelings and decision. Good read

This book introduced me to the fantasy heroine "Xena". After reading this book I was curious to find out what Xena was all about and googled. Now I think I have become a fan and a Xenian :). Presently on Season 2 and loving every bit of it. Thanks Geogia Beers.

This is basically a fluffy, feel-good story. There is no real conflict despite several potential sources, including an unstable alcoholic ex ((view spoiler)); a spoiled, self-centered cousin; and a father-daughter love triangle (HOW could that not turn into a total hot mess???). The real draw is Rochester itself. The shop at the center of Turning the Page was inspired by Silkwoo ...more

I like Georgia Beers' books, and this one was no exception. It is an upbeat romance with characters that engage the reader.

From the publisher's website - Melanie Larson is an attractive, extremely successful business executive who shocks herself by resigning from her job when her company merges with another and relocates. While trying to decide what to do with her life next and at the urging of her uncle, Melanie heads to Rochester, New York, to stay temporarily with her cousin Samantha. She hop

This was a really sweet and lovely book, almost a throwback to the heydays of Xena's popularity on TV more than fifteen years ago when this book was written - as in one of the main character is a huge Xena fan, and they do bond over the series which is very cool. :) Every character in this book is likeable but I do feel for Melissa when she ran, because it seems overwhelming since her entire life changed in a way at the same time (career, love, sexuality). You do feel it's a good change for her ...more

I really enjoyed this book. Recently I have been reading a number of Georgia Beers books which I have enjoyed so I decided to go through and read all of her books. This was a really nice sweet read where I really enjoyed the characters and storyline. It was interesting having the father and daughter pursuing the same women which I personally liked because it made it unique from other f/f romances I have read.

I enjoyed the book and would recommend if you are looking for a nice enjoyable romance.

The first published Georgia Beers book I ever read. I had been reading her stuff before she was published, when she was a mere fan fiction writer for a beloved fandom of mine. Alas, I knew her when. This is a wonderful story with a great plot and strong characters. There's one thing that one of the characters says to the other towards the end, that I still remember almost two decades later. Must have been good if it has stuck with me. Thank you.

Cute story, nothing particularly deep or memorable, but it's a great beach read.

Enjoyed this one, probably the foodie element and the bookshop! The supporting characters are fun, too.

Completely predictable lesbian coming-out romance story, with one or two twists thrown in for good measure.

Had a hard time getting over the fact that vcr's were still the norm during this book. Great read though! ^_^
