This book had everything I love in a good romance. While the underlying girl meets girl, girl falls in love with girl was definitely present, it wasn’t all smooth sailing. I’ve always enjoyed a sense of realism in these kinds of stories and this author delivered. While things in the lives of the main characters, Kate and Meg, weren’t perfect, they worked around the issues life threw at them and made it work.
The cast of supporting characters was a riot and often had me chuckling to myself with their antics and comments. Jess in particular found a place in my heart since she reminds me a lot of one of my friends. This book is great if you want a love story that isn’t smooth sailing, sunshine and rainbows from beginning to end but still works out for the best. I give it two thumbs up and will definitely suggest it to everyone in my reading groups!
A romantic contemporary love story. Very well written and formulated. The two  main characters are believable and exchange witty and believable dialogue, so much so I found myself screaming at them at times!
Although a charming tale there is a quirky and unexpected twist as the relationship between the two women progresses.
A very amicable love story, easy to read and thoroughly enjoyable. Summer reading at its most entertaining.
