Coyote Sky: Finalist, Best Lesbian Romance.Lambda Book Report
Bett Norris - January, 2007: A word about suspension of disbelief. We suspend disbelief willingly for science fiction, for mystery, even for magical realism. Yet why are critics so quick to decry the "formula" that exists for romance? It's nice when love conquers differences, even nicer when good writing conquers formula, and it's very nice to be able to relax and enjoy something so well done, even smile and laugh and sniff a little. That's what romances are geared for, that's why they are so popular... [Coyote Sky] has all the requisite elements of romance, while managing to inject humor and tension, at the same time paying tribute to the very genre it gently satirizes.Just About Write
April, 2007: Gerri Hill has given us a beautifully drawn story in the dazzling setting of the high mountain desert of New Mexico in Coyote Sky, a 2007 Golden Crown Literary Society Award finalist in the Mystery/Thriller/Adventure category. Regional descriptions such as the red cliffs tinged with purple at sunset and a refreshing cascade waterfall are superbly described. The characters are just flawed enough to allow us to identify and sympathize with them, and Hill is masterful in revealing both their strengths and their weaknesses as the story progresses.
