Publisher's Summary

You can’t outrun your past. If you try, it will chase after you in a silver DeLorean.

The last thing Anika Singh wants is to go home to Ohio, but when her mother is diagnosed with cancer, what choice does she really have? She’ll go home if she has to, but she won’t stay long. Because all Marcine, Ohio, has for Anika is bad memories - memories of being an outcast, even within her own family, and memories of a perfect love that was soured by betrayal.

Jenny’s betrayal. Anika’s high school sweetheart turned ex-wife. Anika hopes she won’t run into Jenny...or maybe she hopes she will run into her. It’s hard to say.

Then there’s Amy, a dark-haired beauty Anika meets on the flight to Cleveland, who happens to be in Marcine for a friend’s wedding. Nothing serious can happen with Amy; she’s only going to be in town for a week. Which means that falling for her would be stupid, especially given the fact that Jenny might be available again.

But Anika is famous for doing stupid things.

A story flavored with curry and cornbread, family drama, and a whole lot of f-bombs, Anika Takes the Long Way Home up Soul Mountain will have you laughing, crying, and grimacing as Anika gets chased around by a silver DeLorean and attempts to answer the age-old question: Can you ever really go home again?

Part of the Rosemont Duology: This is the second book in the Rosemont Duology, following up from To Have Loved & Lost. However, Anika Takes the Long Way Home up Soul Mountain can also be enjoyed as a standalone novel. This lesbian romance is rated R for:

  • A lot of really bad language
  • Sexual content
  • Adult situations

Awesome!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend Anika Takes the Long Way Home up Soul Mountain: A Lesbian Romance: Rosemont Duology, Book 2 to anyone lesbian or not! Eliza Andrews hit a home run.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Anika, her character was strong but at the same time caring.

Have you listened to any of Angela Rysk’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Angela Rysk is one of my favorite readers. She reads the Imp series. She adds flavor to the books she reads.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Can't say without giving to much away. I will say there were several moving moments.

Any additional comments?

To many books are the same as the one before. This one was not cookie cutter.

LOVED IT!!!

I read the first book of this duology and I loved it, this one is even better. I loved the story line the characters and I hope that Eliza Andrews will write more adult books... I loved the 1st book because it was about college in a way, and I love this currant book because it deals with life closer to 40...
I am waiting for a book closer to my age... :)
No doubt Angela Rysk was an important component in the appealing of the book.
Great book don’t think twice to read/listen to it...

Old love vs new love

Wish she would’ve ended up with someone else. This tugged on my heart I hated it so much.

Great book! Something to be proud of! Waiting patiently for book “3”.

This story line was an easy listen due to the fact it was relatable as well as believable. It held my attention and through its entirety it continued to draw me in. Was sorry to see it come to its end. Actually I was almost as intrigued while listening to authors rant at the end of books 1 and 2. Would love to meet her someday. Keep up the good work. It’s refreshing to read something that is true to my life. Thanks

I want more...

I absolutely loved this story! I now want to know what happens to Anika Amy, and the rest of Anika's family. It's so great to read a story that is centered around real life lesbian experiences. Thank you thank you thank you !

very good, but not my favorite by Eliza Andrews

I enjoyed this book even though it was a little depressing at times but I kept thinking how I liked the prequel to this better. If you haven't already read "to have loved and lost", please do. I liked the characters more in the first book. dont get me wrong, this is a very good book. if you loved the first book, you'll be happy with this one
