I was pleased that not only lesbians are shown but older lesbians were the central characters in this book. I enjoyed listening.

Having read it many times over the years, I thought I had seen it from every angle. Hearing Sissie Spacek narrate just brought it to a whole higher level.
I have decided that she is one of my favorite narrators. Her voice just seems to take on the character well.
I liked the slow approach to the relationship but it may have been a bit too slow.
Yes, I would. I liked the characters and the story, in parts long winded, was a good story dealing with love and loss.
I liked her as narrator. Her voice was perfect for the characters.
Yes, I would. It was a well written story.
I wanted to listen in one sitting but appreciated being able to listen over a couple of days.
Can Radclyffe not remember the character's names? I am so sick of hearing "her lover" or "my lover," over and over rather the names. Names are a good thing for a reason and that is so it is not like reading some trashy soft core porn. I wanted to like this story. I've listened to 1-4 hoping the characters would get some substance but that has yet to happen. Cam is almost as much of a whiner as Blair but Blair isn't supposed to a strong butch. I prefer the secondary characters as they are not as annoying as Cam and Blair.
I am still trying to figure out how Cam and Blair fell in love. When they met, Cam was using an escort and Blair had indiscriminate sex at the drop of a hat. Both knew yet that wasn't enough to make either of them think perhaps neither would be a great catch. By book 4 they still to me have no reason to be so head over heels. They have spent minimal time together. It's just not realistic that they would fall in love.
There is a lot of sex. If I cared nothing about a story then this book would be ideal. I do care though about the story. This one was disappointing.
Glad that Goldy is back but the premise of her having so much involvement in a police investigation makes the whole story unrealistic for me. The story itself was entertaining and I was looking for entertainment. Love Barbara Rosenblat as the narrator.
This book is one that got it right all around. The story was exceptional and gave me a glimpse into a time I didn't live. My mother was the daughter of a housekeeper and this was her reality. I'm happy to have a better understanding.
Most audiobooks are hit or miss with the narrators and this one hit it in all areas. The voices and accents throughout the book made me want to keep listening. This is definitely one of my all time favorites
I too was enticed by the beginning on the story but it quickly became mundane. Hunter was a character that I felt could have been developed into so much more. Sara was flat. Both characters were like able but neither made you want to go the extra mile. The pace of the romance was unrealistic and the backstory, felt contrived. I would give the author another shot because the premise of the book was good.
