She arrives on Ocracoke Island from her home in Durham to spend the following few months studying the Carolina brogue for her masters degree. She is at last fulfilling her dream which had been put on hold all these years after Lizbeth married James and had her daughter Mazie at nineteen. Mazie was the one good thing to come out of the marriage.
Lizberth is renting her late aunt Minnie's cottage from her cousins. Although Lizbeth hasn't been to Ocracoke Island for years, she soon settles in to life on the island, helped by her aunt's friend, Fanny O'Neal, from the cottage opposite.
When Lizbeth sees Fanny's granddaughter outside kissing a woman one night, Lizbeth can't get the sight out of her head. When Lizbeth meets Gray over at Fanny's cottage, Gray starts flirting with her and Lizbeth can't help feeling attracted to her.
Lizbeth and Gray begin to spend time together and Lizbeth finds herself falling for Gray in a big way. She decides to throw caution to the wind and go with her feelings. So what if Gray is a woman and Lizbeth has only ever been out with men? Gray however, doesn't want to allow herself to fall in love. She knows Lizbeth will leave the island to go back to her life in Durham and she feels she can't take the hurt and pain this would cause her. Gray has been hurt badly in the past. She knows what she feels for Lizbeth now would break her heart beyond repair if she actually fell in love with her totally.
But the inevitable happens, Lizbeth and Gray sleep together and they fall in love.Read more ›
I absolutely swooned when, in a passionate moment, Lizbeth whispers to Gray "Fall in love with me" --- and I did. The scene where Lizbeth, a well-off, socially prominent "former" straight-woman, lays claim to Gray by kissing her in front of God and everyone at the local community watering hole is priceless.
There are tons of run-of-the-mill mediocre lesbian romances available -- and this isn't one of them. What sets Bradshaw's books apart is the charm, humor, and engaging way she presents her characters. She's just a really, really damn good writer.
Her books have heart.
Happy Reading - Curtie
Lizbeth Jackson is on the final stretch of starting a new life at 40. She's spent the last five years, after divorcing a cheating husband, studying Linguistic Anthropology and will soon graduate with a Master's Degree as soon as she finishes her thesis paper. She intends to study the Carolina Brogue on Ocracoke Island, where she spent her childhood holidays. The first day there she meets Fanny, who lives across the road with her granddaughter, Gray. Lizbeth is shocked to find herself unexpectedly attracted to the flirtatious Gray and can't help but flirt back. It doesn't take long for Lizbeth to fall deeper and deeper for Gray, once she gets over being attracted to another female. Gray, despite her reputation for only having casual flings, seems to want more from their budding relationship, if only she can overcome the ghost of her past.
I loved everything about this book. The characters are all enjoyable, Fanny is the wise, funny old grandmother everyone wishes they had to give them advice, Lizbeth's daughter Mazie is funny and accepting and knows her mother well, there's even an appearance from Molly Kincaid, the well-known lesbian attorney who we know from a couple of other Bradshaw books. The attraction between Gray and Lizbeth is sizzling hot, the romance builds wonderfully, with just a little miss-communication and angst to make you appreciate the romance all the more.Read more ›
And thanks for offering this book in a format which may be transferred to non-Kindle e-readers.
