Starting From Scratch

by Georgia Beers

My name is Avery King and I’m probably a lot like you. I’m a 34-year-old single lesbian and my heart belongs to my rescued mutt, Steve. I work as a graphic designer and my life is quiet and comfortable. All in all, I’m a pretty regular girl and for the most part, I lead a pretty regular life.

Things I look forward to: baking goodies and then sharing them; spending time with my grandmother; reading anything I can get my hands on; enjoying dinner with my friends; a quiet evening and a glass of wine; hiking new trails and exploring nature with Steve. Things I’d like to avoid at all costs: in-depth discussions with my ex; dealing with children; online dating; babysitting; falling for somebody’s mom; taking my perception of myself all the way back to square one.

See that list of things I’d like to avoid? Yeah, guess who’s going to hit every single one of them this year…What happens when your life takes an unexpected turn? What happens when you need to protect the one you love from the one you want to love? What happens when you lose something you never knew you wanted?

Lambda and Golden Crown Literary Award-winning author Georgia Beers brings to you her long-awaited seventh novel, Starting from Scratch, a story where learning, laughing, loving, and baked goods are just a few of life’s basic ingredients.

Starting from Scratch…where life is what you make it.

    Wine and baked goods?! what’s not to love? Seriously though- this is my second time experiencing this book. the first time I rated it 4 stars but upon rereading I’m not sure what I was thinking then. This is definitely a 5. It has some of my favorite things. i.e. wine, baked goodies, Grandma’s who rock, and lots of humor. Like laugh out loud humor. Inner dialogue that we can all relate to had me chuckling many times. This story pulls at my heartstrings because I was very close to my Grandmother, and like Avery, my Grandmother taught me all there is to baking and making good food. I couldn’t help but think of my time with my Grandmother any time Avery mentions it in the book. I love how Avery and Elena wind up officially meeting. What a great meet-cute! (movie term- I’m sure it applies to books too) The whole storyline was very realistic and seemed to move at a good pace. I cried my eyes out at one point, but don’t want to give any spoilers. It had a great ending to wrap it up, but based on the sadness I had in part of the book I definitely foresee a little bit of a book hangover. I hate to see these characters go. I really love Avery! She’s Hilarious!
