Look, narrator did a great job and the character Dale with her Scottish voice really carried the story. Probably a bit too keen to force a conventional family scene but still enough to like about it. Butch/femme trope dynamic.

Are you dreaming of a rich older butch to look after you and a white picket fence? Me neither. Saccharine and the narrator did not help, speaking at a pace and tone that did no favours to the lacklustre storyline. The first Jenny frame book I did not enjoy.

Emily Noon creates an amazing universe combining magic and shape shifters. In this epic adventure you meet lesbian protagonists Evie and Aurora, who have sizzling chemistry. Genuinely a very well written novel, with complex and interesting characters, and at 20 hours it is also great value. It has some violence but it is not gratuitous. I can’t recommend this book enough and now need to go find what else Emily Noon has written. Adult fiction not YA.

Lesbian Janet Evanovich style caper. Characters didn’t quite grow on me, the southern slang was a little hard to understand, character motivated didn’t quite add up, but nearly did. Neither loved nor hated narrator

Best lesfic I have listened to for a long time. And I loved the window to the 90s for gay women.

I have enjoyed some of Ali Vali’s work in the past and the positive in this book is that the characters have great sexual chemistry. For me though, chauvinism is still gross even if the character in question is a woman, not helped by the very masculine voice tone for her by the narrator. Some plot points reminded me of a narrowed down version of steel magnolias, minus the strong female friendships.

Ethically I struggled with the idea presented that being asexual is a problem and something that needs to be embarrassed about. There were many too convenient moments that made the plot work and overall I wasn’t sold on the storyline or finale. Abby Craden as usual was great.

I think this meant to be a femme/butch romance, but I found it to be some sort of a unbelievably heroic masc saviour stereotype vs a pitiful innocent woman without any personality or ambition. Not sure which the reader was meant to identify with- both are awful. Chemistry so bad I didn’t even want them to get back together. Also wouldn’t listen to anything else by this narrator. She didn’t take any breaths between sentences and didn’t do the characters well.

Predictably enjoyable

I may have guessed the ending after the first chapter but still ended up enjoying the story

This book has everything that makes a pleasant read plus cute animals. Solid chemistry between main characters and I liked the supernatural angle. Did rely on several common plot twists often used like mistaken identity, misunderstood intention and tragic loss of past love but yvonne Heidt writes them well. As comforting and familiar as a snuggling under a blanket on a cold night.
