Bunny Finds a Friend by Hazel Yeats is a wonderful novel whose main character is an absolute delight. This book reached out and grabbed me right from the start. From beginning to end this book is enjoyable and totally amusing. I loved it!
Cara Jong is a free spirit who cannot for the life of her commit to anything since she graduated from college. She is smart, funny, has an amazing heart and is strikingly beautiful. Cara’s main issue is that she doesn’t want to be tied down to the rigors of Grownupville (this is 100% a made up word, but is by far where I live right now). Grownupville makes you pick a career, buy a house, settle down with one person, and hey Cara is just not feeling it. So, she wanders, and she job hops, and has a string of short-term girlfriends, much to the dismays of her overly critical but hilarious sisters. All of this changes, well kind of, when she meets Jude Donovan.
Jude is not like Cara. She has a career. She is a well know children’s author of a series about a bunny who encounters real life problems and solves them in the glorious way that children’s book do. Jude is an American expat, divorcee and a single mom. Cara is happily residing in Grownupville and is thriving. All she is missing is a little creativity (writer’s block) and someone to share her life with.
Unfortunately for Jude and Cara they meet at the wrong time in life, (don’t freak out this is still 100% a romance novel), and their lives being on different tracks causes them both strife. Cara cannot deal with her not being on the same footing as Jude career wise.Read more ›
Cara gets centre stage in this love story. We do meet Jude, and she does share the spotlight but the focus and real character growth is demonstrated by Cara. Her meddling sisters are a big part of her life. They are much more than secondary characters. They are Cara's past and present. They are her unconditional love, her home base and her moral compass. Their hetero views and equal share of caring, concern and clueless nature regarding their little sister are a constant source of humour and insight.
Unlike many pure romance novels, in this book there are no bad guys (girls) and no conversations which if faced would resolve our lovers problems. How things work out for this couple as we know they will is special to watch.
That said and not giving away spoilers, the last book Jude writes in the novel is a perfect reflection of Cara and Jude.
A full glorious 5 stars for a book I loved from cover to cover.

This was a cute book, with fairly realistic characters leading a fairly realistic life--something that's harder to find than one would think in lesbian literature. Cara's a regular gal, with a typical lack of commitment found in a myriad characters in literature, gay and straight. Perhaps the biggest issue with this book is that it sort of seems like a sketch of what could have been an even more fully-developed and even more enjoyable novel. We don't get to see a lot of Cara and Jude's actual relationship development, for instance. Their courtship and issues are quickly glossed over. I would have liked to have seen more of what led them to fall for each other--and fall apart. After all, those sorts of things (falling in love, struggling to maintain a relationship while juggling exes and children and jobs) are what we all have in common.
Cara's sisters are also supposed to add a bit of comic relief, perhaps, to the novel, but they sometimes come across as harpy and annoying.Read more ›
There is so much to love about this book. The beautiful Amsterdam settings, the charming rom-com atmosphere, a lively gaggle of nosy, judgmental but ultimately loving and supportive 'sisters', a sweet and adorable pairing, and enough drama to liven up pages. From start to end, this is Cara's story. The romance is not the central theme of the book (Cara's long-delayed journey to adulthood is) but it did get real quality time, and features some of the most romantic moments I've read in quite a while. People who come into the book expecting it to be all about Cara and Jude (as romances go) will be a bit disappointed as they also spend quite a bit of time apart. In between, we have Cara and the meddlesome sisters. They're occasionally overbearing, but the smart dialogue, witty quips and cheeky back and forths that characterize their exchanges save them from being just caricatures. Plus, they serve as an excellent narrative device to fully explore Cara's dealing with love, life and growing up.
