Lambda Literary Review
Kallmaker writes in her distinctive sassy style, entertaining us with the full range of emotions experienced by the characters. In some respects, the main characters seem simple, but their complexity blossoms as we journey with them through their lives and their difficulties.
Rainbow Book Reviews
The latest offering from Karin Kallmaker tells the story of Suzanne and Jennifer, two women around the age of forty at the top of their respective games, who have both come to the realization that fame and fortune may not be all it's cracked up to be if you still go home alone nearly every night. For as much as I thought I disliked both women for different reasons, Kallmaker sucked me in with deeper character analysis that left me cheering them both on in the last few chapters. This is most definitely not a typical hearts-and-flowers romance. It is significantly more than that and well worth a read as a result.
The Lesbian Review
It is a great read. I expect a lot from Kallmaker and she delivered a good romance with interesting characters and a plot line that left me mulling it over for days. Good work from a great author.
Lesbian Reading Room
It's a delight to have Karin Kallmaker back at the writer's block after her quiet years…Extremely well written in classic Kallmaker style, with a great supporting cast of friends and colleagues and a fascinating exploration on the social scene these women inhabit, this one is a joy to read. The humour balances the seriousness of the underlying message and the success and growth of both women puts the heartache into the perspective of a grown up wider world.
