There is nothing like frustrated desire to drive the narrative ascent to ecstasy and Poppy Goodhead makes sure to let us know early on that her lead female and male characters have experienced lust at first sight without knowing it is reciprocated. Thus are the fires stoked for the climatic conflagration. And Amy spends more than a little time stoking her own fire in anticipation. Able assistance is provided by maths teacher Claire who doesn’t mind becoming Amy’s manhunt mentor when not engaged in introducing her to the pleasures of a woman’s touch.
Voyeurism is a powerful generator of suspense as any Alfred Hitchcock fan will tell you. The excitement of seeing what you shouldn’t see and the danger of getting caught. Amy is determined to find out all she can about hunky fellow teacher John Samson. What she discovers is so exciting she just can’t play it safe.
There is a good-natured playfulness about this story. Our heroine, in all her yearning naivety, is instantly appealing. And the sexual scenes are intoxicatingly heady stuff. I’m so glad I have four more Amy stories to look forward to.
