I look forward to reading many more stories coming from such a talented writer.
This book arrived on my doorstep as part of a large order. Unfortunately, it found its way to the bottom of the stack and I took a while to get to it. This will probably come across the wrong way, but I have to say it anyway. Geonn Cannon is a man. I didn't realize this until I read the author bio. My first thought was - can a man write a believable story about a lesbian? Later that day, when I finished the last page, I realized this was one of the most sensual and well-written stories about a lesbian I've ever read. Geonn Cannon may not be a woman, but he knows how one thinks. Bravo!
The back cover description is pretty accurate, so I won't rehash to plot here. I'll just say the book is quite good (4.5 stars out of 5) and I'll read another book by this author any time.
The laminated cover refuses to hold its shape and curls away from both the front and back of the book. Nothing will make it flatten out.
Again, this one is OK for light reading, but it probably won't be a "keeper" in your library.
Nadine and Miranda and Kate are lovely. I'm trying not to post too many spoilers (though did I say sexy?). But Geonn is not afraid to write about romance or strife. The result is indulgent, and yet never loses its innate sense of realism, making it a relatively guilt-free read. I fell in love with the characters, their ups and downs, their triumphs in loss. I learned a lot from this book, but mostly that I really want to visit Squire's Isle.
Geonn does a wonderful job of slowly developing these characters, creating a relationship between them that's compelling and believable. He delivers a story ripe with human emotions, human frailties and strengths. Full of that angst we all love. I love his work and hope he keeps writing for a long, long time.
