Story thesis: `City girl' takes time out in the small town her father grew up town in an attempt to sort out her life after a series of setbacks. Meets local town personnel, each with their own quirks, and ends up falling in love.
Age of protagonists: Mid-late 30's?
Romance Arc: Relatively slow burn. Interspersed with moments of town madness.
Lesbian status Both are out lesbians.
Sex Scenes: Yes .
Happy Ending: Yes .
Best Feature of story: The two main characters, Morgan and Jaclyn and very easy to like and you're rooting for them the whole way. Limited angst and the town itself is like a big warm hug with a spoonful of occasional crazy. At times it's laugh out loud.
Worst Features of story: Look it's never going to win literary awards. It's sweet, formulaic and thoroughly enjoyable.
Any supernatural elements: No.
Best suited for: Perfect holiday read or if you need something to put a smile on your face
Recommend to: Anyone who enjoys good solid lesbian romances. It also made me want to move to the South.
Would read other books by author, based on this one: Really enjoyed this..and its sequel.I continually recommend Robyn's books..she's a leader of the genre.
I look forward to Ms. Alexander's next book -- and I hope she takes us all back to either St. Clare or White Oak.
If you've had a crappy day or week, and need a little lift, then this is the story for you.
This is a gentle love story, set in the heart of Louisiana bayou country, in the tiny town of White Oak Lake. It's populated by some pretty memorable characters who get into some mighty funny situations. I kept rooting for the two main characters in their quest to find happiness, in spite of all the shenanigans.
The only thing I didn't like, was that the book had to end. I wanted my stay in White Oak Lake to continue.
