The second book we continue with the lovely and shy Laura she end's up in the village like a good little lesbian and drama ensues ,We meet Jack Mann and fall head over heels for him but he's gay so what you gotta do ,we are also introduced to the infamous Beebo Brinker ,Ann Bannon the writer intro's all her story's and I have found myself looking forward to them , she wrote these stories in the Fifties and the time's can be hard to get your head around but that just made me love it even more.
If you can get past this god awful narrator , and good luck with that than you are a better person than I .
She is terrible on every level , this is like hearing a one woman play done by a six year old reading ( badly ) from que cards , I can forgive a lot especially when the writing good , but nothing will save this . It's a real same I think I could have enjoyed it ,the book had some good parts but it is just painful...don't bother .....Audible should be ashamed for letting this one slip past...
There is nothing good about this which was a shame, I just kept hoping the next story would redeem this buy but to no avail.
I cant recommend this save your doe teamsters.
I can not express how much I loved this book , there are no words that do not pale in comparison to the strength,integrity and humor of this delight.
I fell I'm tarnishing the alphabet by writing this review but I need to say that one Juliet Stevenson should read every book she is amazing ,her voice gives such gravity to Virginia wisdom and two the fact that a woman was fighting for her sex's rights back in her day and age makes me proud to be a woman and a feminist . In my time where the word feminism has become something to hide or be ashamed take strength form this book , it will make you scream your a feminist from the roof tops ..
The Weather is not the only steamy presence in this romance ,Sailor Max and the brave aid worker Rachel , manage to find each other even under heavy fire . Radclyfe went above and beyond in the realistic department, I was exhausted just listing to this intense tale of love in the middle of a war zone . I found the action not being in the bed room refreshing , don't panic it wouldn't be a Radclife without that but it was nice not o have sex as the point of focus .
So I was a little harsh with the first book so I must redeem my self and say that I enjoyed this one much more and will continue to read the next one in the series ,I still don't love the overly breathy narrator but I got over her and was lost in the lives of the strong doctor and sexy sheriff , every available lull in this story is filled with sex so if that bothers you this is not for you ,but I have a feeling if your a Radclyffe fan it wont.
Good drama and Radcliffe seance of humor is alive and well ,I'm falling for these characters and I'm looking forward to seeing where the their all heading .
This kills me to say because I love these books ,but this was just bad ,there is nothing good about it the story it's long and boring were nothing really happens , even the narrator who is usually tip top fell flat I felt so sorry for my New Zealand cousins who's accent is massacred in this snore feast but having said this , I do beg of you do not judge this sires based on this hic up ,a bad egg in a good bunch .
She's back after the last book in this sires I was worried but I am very pleased to say apart from an abrupt ending this was one of my favorites.
Many secrets are answered in this book but then again that just made room for more questions.
The humor that was missing from the last book is back I laughed out load ,Danny the troll Taxi driver is in fine form as is Tibolt who is always in fine form , our heroin continues to push her body and her mind too and beyond the limits,but Toby is always up for the challenge that's why we love her.
For some reason Kerry Greenwood has been channeling Tennessee Williams and Arthur Conan Doyle in this attempt to get Sherlock homes and Watson together as she had always envisioned in this thinly veiled attempt she explains this at the end of the book with frankly I enjoyed more than this particulate tale ,The names have been changed to protect the innocent but I found it indulgent and tiring the padding around this affair was horrible ,Stephanie (cant carry a tune in a bucket) Daniel sings if you have been on the receiving end of this I don't need to say anymore .I love these books but this was just too ,to much .
Maybe two stars was a little harsh for story but it was getting so over done towards the end maybe not.
Two things put me of here the repetitiveness of the story the same fell and dialog was getting a bit thin, I always enjoyed and looked forward to Radclyffe's story's in the lesbian short stories audible has but perhaps that's the problem length,filling holes in her story's with sex seances that are not terribly imaginative ,the last few I have read fell like it's a race to get to the end rushed and clunky.
Right if you have decided that Radcyffe is for and you don't care for my opinion that's cool but please beware of this narrator for some reason she takes a sharp breath before every sentence I was amazed she didn't pass out from lack of oxygen I found it very disruptive perhaps you like like that kind of thing but personally I'm done...
It pains me to say this so called second book or as I like to put it the other bit left over from the first installment ,is boring but it lacked very much in the story department which is not what I have come to expect from Radclyffe she usually delivers in spades.
I personally would recommend Hostage Moon By Quinn same story just told better,
