Is that a good thing?
Josie has a secret that causes a lack of trust between them.A lot of time is spent by Felix wondering what the problem is and does she dare take a chance on Josie since she seems to move frequently from one place to another?
I had a tough time finding the appeal of either of these characters.
I did like the description of the camping business Felix is struggling to work into a livelihood.The Australian outback weather sounds like months of a dry season followed by months of heavy rains and flooding.No easy conditions to earn a living.
Other than the details of Outback living,I can't say I really enjoyed this story.
Too much angst and no feel for the attraction between the 2 main characters.
I expected the storyline to be predictable going in but found that not to be the case at all. Twists in the plot had me drawn deeper into the story to see what was going to happen next. There is romance and comedy but also some intrigue and mystery to the story with a resolution I did not see coming. It’s a page turner I read quickly to satisfy my curiosity once I realized this story was not going to go the way I assumed that it would.
There is Aussie slang in the story and plenty of it but nothing that cannot be deciphered after a quick online dictionary search; the slang only adds more exotic flavor for anyone outside of Australia reading the story. I recommend this book and the rest of the ‘Girl Meets Girl’ series for fabulous and funny female characters who will stick with you and whose re-appearance in other books in the series you’ll cheer for and thoroughly enjoy. I hope that there are more stories at some point in this series and if not, that Cheyenne Blue writes more stories set in the Outback and rural Australia because she knows how to really bring that setting to life in all its glory and variety.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Building the business takes a huge amount of time and energy. Felix tells herself she doesn’t have room in her life for a relationship. When she encounters the flirtatious and curvy new barmaid at the town pub, though, she can’t help wishing things were otherwise.
Josie Beccari has spent years moving from town to town across Australia, picking up what work she can. Her job tending bar at the Commercial is just another gig, until she meets Felix. She’s strongly drawn to the rangy, independent owner of Jayboro Station. At the same time, she recognizes that Felix may be able to help her with a practical problem. She asks Felix to board her horse Flame, a retired thoroughbred no longer fit for racing.
Felix senses there’s something strange about this arrangement, but between her attraction to Josie and the money the woman is offering, she agrees to Josie’s plan. Although Felix is wary, the two women become friends. The more time she spends in Josie’s presence, the more Felix wants her as a lover, but she remains unsure that she can trust the mercurial, mop-headed drifter.
Fenced-In Felix is the third book in Cheyenne Blue’s Girl Meets Girl series. Felix appears as a minor character in the previous volume, Not-So-Straight Sue. She’s Sue’s first lesbian lover since her teenage years, when Sue decided she was straight. Seen through Sue’s eyes, Felix seems mature, sexy and self-assured.
In this novel, Felix comes across as younger, more insecure and more vulnerable. Almost all her energy is consumed by her work at Jayboro Station. Though she’s comfortable acknowledging her sexual preferences, she’s surprisingly skittish about relationships. Still, I felt I understood her motivations and her fears.
Josie is more of a cipher. One wonders what set her on her drifter’s path. I didn’t really get a sense of who she was, though I could see why Felix would find her attractive.
Like the other two novels in the series, Fenced-In Felix is a classic romance. Indeed, it’s almost a sweet romance. There’s a strong undercurrent of sensuality in the book, but the actual love scenes are far more abbreviated and understated than I’d normally expect from Cheyenne Blue. I guess she is writing for a different audience than in her Blue Woman series of erotic stories.
While the author may stint on the sex, she doesn’t hold back in describing the setting. Her love of the Outback shines in the luminous pictures she paints of the land’s harsh beauty.
I think I enjoyed this book more because I’d already read Never-Tied Nora and Not-So-Straight Sue. Nora, Sue, Geraldine and Moni all show up in this book, for a happy reunion. It was great fun seeing them again, and appreciating how their relationships had matured. At the same time, the two couples from the previous novels serve to throw Felix’s uncertainties into sharp relief.
If you are looking for well-written lesbian romance with a strong sense of place, I can recommend Fenced-In Felix.
