Love is a battlefield. Shelby Summerfield is a Southern belle at a northern college in 1993, which is a challenge to begin with. And yes, Florence Truong, the object of Shelby's lust and the only other woman on campus not wearing flannel, does catch her in what looks like a compromising position with a straight boy at pub trivia night. But Shelby is a gold star lesbian and Florence's dapper fashion sense makes her weak in the knees, so her rejection stings hard.

Funny story! You can't go wrong with this one. I enjoyed this book. I thought the narration was great. Shelby's Southern drawl, phrases and her need to get the girl make the book so entertaining! I really need a book 2!

With the arrival of Courtney Carrington, Margaret's youth sparked into color. But first loves can scar. Margaret hasn't seen Courtney in years and that's for the best. But when Courtney loses her father and returns to Tanner Peak to take control of the family store, Margaret comes face-to-face with her past and the woman she's tried desperately to forget. The fact that Courtney has grown up more beautiful than ever certainly doesn't help matters.

Intriguing, a nice slow/sweet start (young love). The chapter headers made it easier to keep on track in the audible version of the story, as the story went from past to current. The narrator does a decent job, but I wasn’t too keen on her voice for Margaret. Courtney sounds sophisticated, whereas Margaret just sounds young. Overall, it’s a enjoyable book.

I got drawn into this story pretty quickly.
It's a short story, but does end on a cliffhanger, so room for continuation. I'd be interested in seeing more of Tess and her new agency - Colt Information Agency - as well as learning more of her background.
Great narration by Ms. Duke - really believable accent changes for Tess. She laughed where the story called for it, rather than reading "she laughed" etc. She puts action into the book. Really fantastic
