Book Review: Then & Now by Monica McCallan

Instant favorite. I am a big fan of Monica McCallan. Her characters are always hot and likable, with better than average dialogue, and a small dose of angst for a good payoff. But this was so much more than that. McCallan tells an affecting story

Book Review: To The Moon And Back by Melissa Brayden

Grounded from the gulp. Lauren is a stage manager at an esteemed Minneapolis theater, The McAllister. Her much needed vacation is thwarted when she is asked to cancel and run interference for a troubled starlet who just signed on as a lead for the upcoming

Book Review: Gideon the Ninth by Tamsyn Muir

Why didn’t I read this sooner? Had I read it in 2019, when it was released, it would have topped my ‘best of’ list, for sure. ‘Gideon the Ninth’ is all necromancy, politics, and snark. Two out of three of those things are so outside

2019 Books: Lesbian Fiction Year In Review

According to goodreads, I read about 200 books this year. I thoroughly enjoyed most of them. There were some good surprises and a few disappointments. Overall, I’m just so pleased with how many high quality lesbian fiction books are being published these days. Having said

Book Review: Eyes Like Those by Melissa Brayden

Book Review: Compass Rose by Anna Burke

An exciting pirate story set in the future. What was not to like about this? If you are looking for robust storytelling and world building, then this is the book for you. Extra points for lots of strong women characters. This story is about a

Book Review: Girls Who Pray by Evelyn Dar

Come on, Evelyn Dar. Where in the world did this come from?! I loved, Loved, LOVED this book! 5 Stars. Favorites shelf. Period. Claire is being sued by the Amish for a non-fiction book release of her relationship with a woman during her time in

Book Review: Charon Docks At Daylight

Ouch, this one hurt.  There are a lot of pages here. Three books worth, probably. But I consumed it as fast I could even though I was hindered by starting a new job. Life! This is not a published book and I’m not entirely certain

Book Review: Behind The Green Curtain by Riley Lashea

Am I the only person who thought this was a Wizard of Oz retelling or something? The font and the green and the curtain? No? OK, maybe just me. Well, the only similarity it had with the Wizard of OZ was Caton probably wishing she

Book Review: The Secret Chord by Virginia Hale

Romance at its finest. “Tilly had longed for a simple life and devoting herself to God. Kate had longed for a simple life and devoting herself to Tilly.” Rarely do I feel like a book so emphatically resonates with me. All of the pieces have
