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.
“I sit here sobbing, my heart hurting and filled with joy for Avery & Alena at the same time. I have to start by saying that with the exception of the rating with stars at the end of books, (I mean, who would care what I think of a book... Right?) I have never left a review of a book. But I have never felt so compelled to do so as right now…
Georgia Beers writes & in this case narrates in such a way that I felt I was IN the story. Maybe it’s how she creates real life characters with everyday conflicts & combine that with a storyline that you don't necessarily see coming a mile away, which can be difficult in this genre at times.
In my opinion this the BEST novel I've read so far by Georgia Beers, & I said that same thing last week when I finished Olive Oil & White Bread. :-D”
Andrea Blake's life has order. Everything is meticulously laid out and planned, from her house in its quiet neighborhood to her career path at Hagan's, the largest supermarket chain in the Northeast. Andrea knows what she wants. Enter Kendall Foster, the distractingly attractive woman in charge of sales for her family's local microbrewery and somebody who wants very much to get her beer onto Hagan's shelves.
“This lesbian romance novel has the right amount of excitement, suspense, substance, and sensuality to make it quite compelling from start to finish. It doesn't gloss over the intimate details of the relationship of the leading female characters but, it doesn't get overly graphic either. The narrator is a very talented voice actress who believably performs the voices of both genders and of extreme age ranges. Amazing!”
Erica Ryan is flying home from London after a disastrous business trip. Free spirit Abby Hayes is flying into New York City to visit her mother before jetting off again. Both end up in Gander, Canada, when their flight is diverted because of 9/11. For ninety-six hours they share a rollercoaster of emotions and find themselves drawn to one another. Will their nascent connection survive everyday life when they return home?
“A lesbian romance set against the backdrop of the 9/11 attack on the twin towers? It sounds like an oxymoron but Georgia Beers knows what she’s doing.
I have never been so scared and on edge at the beginning of a book.
Over the course of the book, the characters, an uptight scientist, and a wandering free-spirit, are stuck in an airport in Newfoundland, Canada, grounded by the attacks on the Twin Towers. They're not allowed to even get their checked luggage, sleeping on cots, the whole airport like a refugee camp.
What else is there to do but fall in love?
Romy Nordlinger does a fantastic job of bringing across the moods of the characters, blithe one minute, stressed the next.”
