Lesbian Fiction ReviewsJune, 2010: The author does a great job of moving the story along and keeping us guessing on some aspects but letting us figure out a good bit of it on our own. The character development wasn't very deep but it didn't need to be. While there is some romance in the book, it is, primarily, a murder mystery and focuses on that. Yes, there are two emotionally damaged women who are attracted to each other but we don't really get into the nitty gritty of their damage. We know it's there but it stays nicely in the background, allowing us to feel a bit of empathy for them, and then move on to the crimes that are in need of solving.
