Julie was shocked when her lover dumped her and moved away.
Although Lilly knew that her partner had been cheating on her for years, it was still a blow when her lover told her to move out…and then continued to pursue Lilly for easy sex even after Lilly had moved.
Lilly handles her emotions by turning inward to her beloved music (the pianist), but Julie becomes a lesbian poster child for Girls Gone Wild. She becomes unreliable at home and at work, starts hitting the alcohol, and throws herself into a series of unworkable relationships with other women, including tenants of the apartment complex where she works in the maintenance department.
It would be easy to write Julie off as an unlikeable character, but the reader knows this isn’t really what she wants. She wants someone to devote herself to and love whole-heartedly, the way she did her first partner, Christina. And there’s someone right there in front of her, if Julie can only tone down the bad girl behavior long enough to see it!
Unlike some of Folger’s other books, like Black and Blue Love which dealt with domestic violence, and Lisa’s Nightmares which dealt so poignantly with child abuse, The Plumber and the Pianist has a large vein of humor running throughout, but it’s also got a good heart, and you’ll find yourself cheering for the main characters in the end.
One thing I do wish was explianed or even Prologued was the relationship of Julie and her ex. It would be nice to have a grasps of what happened so we could understand maybe a little better about how she was before. It would give a bigger impact on her change after.
If you have the time, read it. I liked it.
For instance, you’ll laugh like crazy when uptight Professor Lilly assumes that the promiscuous Julie is not only married to a man but also completely unfamiliar with lovemaking between two women.
Don’t let the tissues get too far away, though. You’ll need them when you read about the misunderstandings that kept Julie from forming a friendship with her Aunt Bell for more than twenty years.
Like in a 1940’s movie, deception, confusion and – ultimately – honesty and genuine vulnerability lift this story more than a notch over the standard lesbian romantic fare.
I give The Plumber and the Pianist two thumbs up, and I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did!
This was a sweet romance that felt classic. This was my first read by The author despite seeing so many titles by her and I just kept wondering what took me so long?! A wonderful, enjoyable plot, realistic characters and lots of dimension. It was everything that I wanted in a good romance and women who love women to boot!
Sure, there were a few grammar mistakes here and there. But for once, I hardly noticed while I was reading. I was pleasantly charmed by this novel and can't wait to get reading on her others. I am so glad I decided to start with this book and would recommend this to anyone who loves a sweet story with a happily ever after.
