Publisher's Summary

Micky Ferro has lived her entire life according to other people's expectations. She married a man, had two children, and became a dutiful stay-at-home mom in suburban Sydney. Until she realized, with a little help from her best friend, that her picture-perfect life wasn't making her happy.

On the first anniversary of her divorce, Micky decides it's time for the next step in her journey and gets a job at her neighborhood coffee shop, The Pink Bean. Becoming a barista sparks a big change in Micky's daily routine, but could loud-spoken American customer Robin do the same for her love life? Contains mature themes.

Great book.

This was a really good middle age coming out story. It delt with real life issues. it delt with how hard it can be to have a sexual friends only relationship. It had a really good mix of sub characters. The Author did well keeping me engaged and interested. The flow of the story was really smooth.
The nartation was better than I expected. Me being an Abby Craden Fan Girl.
I have to say the only thing I didn't like was ...
The sudden ending , and the short time robin had with the kids.
other than that I loved it.
you have to read it for yourself, it's worth it.

Great narration

after listening to hundreds of books and enjoy lesbian literature, I learned to appreciate a good narrator. No matter how good a book is, a narrator can give you either a good experience or disappointing one. In this occasion I think the narration added value to the story and elevated it.

A great book

Loved the story line, and the narration. Angela Dawe captured the characters extremely well.
A little Australian accent could be fun...

Familiar theme...

I could so relaye to this story as I, too, was,a,late-bien. Monkey's story took me back to my own coming out after having been married to a man, having 2 kids and coming to terms, at 42, with,my attraction to women. Very well written and very poignant for me.

Great story

I remember my coming out and the worry and struggles I had. I found myself excited for these woman and actually cried too. The humor was entertaining and kind of took some of the edge off some of the intensity ar times. I would have liked to have seen a bit more depth given to the women who owned the coffee shop. maybe next time. Excellent as a audio book. Narrator could read to me anytime. loved it.

Well done

I vote Ms Bliss' writing is becoming exquisite. What I loved? Over 40 characters and fantastic narration.

Pros: smart characters, good dialogue, realistic coming out jitters
Cons: well, it's a romance so some of the sex scenes are bound to come with typical commentary.

Much needed story

A topic that doesn't get covered much- but needs to be. My only complaint is that I wish the book was longer...
