Typical Hill; Predictable But Still Good

I'm a huge fan of lesbian romance and for all of it's weaknesses this one rates on the high end of the genre for me. The first Gerri Hill book offered on Audible was Snow Falls, and I loved it despite a number of those weaknesses. To a large extent this audiobook was Snow Falls goes to the beach, the two main characters were again a tightly wound, successful career woman, and a late blooming wallflower who still considers herself straight, and has a domineering mother. I liked it almost as much as I did Snow Falls and as always there were several passages that brought big sloppy tears to my eyes and down my cheeks.
One problem that I have with this author and many other baby boomer writers who attempt to write millennial characters and their families. They deal with all the old prejudices and mores that they had to encounter and deal with in their twenties as if the social and political landscape hasn't changed since then. Both lead characters are practically virgins (the author is a bit vague about Jordan's sexual history) and the attitudes that exist, particularly those of Annie's mother are over the top. I'm not saying that people like Clara no longer exist, but I'm in a community in the rural south and I don't come across very many people who are living that far in the past. Also Jordan's big time job in Chicago is never referred to in any specificity, all we're told is that it's in finance and she has to deal with a client in Tokyo. Then both lead characters, one in her late twenties the other in her mid thirties who never seem to comment on each other's bodies. It sounds to me like Annie's pregnancy took her from a barely B cup, to a heavy C and Jordan addresses it as if she were Annie's obstetrician. In any case despite the repetitive plot and those issues with detail, if like romance, particularly lesbian romance; get it.

great book

I love all of Gerri Hills books. great, warm love stories. I just wish, in real life, parents eventually warmed up to their daughters lesbian lifestyle.

One of the best

At first I had a hard time following, however by the end of chapter one I was fully invested. it was a laugh out loud, very sentimental, romantic book that is going to make you want so much more of it .
Every part of this book represents someone out there in the Lbgt community. the stress, the fear, the fight within us to want to be who we are and just be in love with the special person.
The family drama..its real.
The crazy Ex.. yup that's real too. tell me who hasn't had one of those?
This was such a sweet book.. I can't wait for Hill to write a new one or expand on some of her old ones...
This is a must read over and over..

Lovely story Line

What made the experience of listening to Pelican’s Landing the most enjoyable?

The reader pulls you into the story.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Pelican’s Landing?

The story of Fat Larry the purple pelican

What does Carly Robins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I own 99% of Gerri Hill`s books but just found the audio version & decided to hear it. It was well read.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I purchased this book for the drive from upstate NY to Northern NC. It kept me awake and engaged with fits of laughter with an underlined love story.

Excellent Book

I loved this book. The only complaint is with Annie's mother. The character is not realistic.

Probably my favorite book in a while.

I love this book. I love the concept. It brings love into a very tricky and unusual situation. I’ve literally listened to it like 10 times. The narrator did a great job. So happy I decided to listen.

Boring, generic plot

If you like cliched characters that have the same conversations about 5 times, whose motivations are stuck in the 80s, and a plot driven by their own pessimism, than you'll love this story. Hill can write a decent sex scene or two and that's about all this story had.

Very sweet story

I love this story. It is surprisingly well written, and it held my attention beautifully. It's such a sweet, feel-good story.

This genre has the same issues...predictability!

No matter how hard a narrator tries or how good they read, if the book doesn't have any depth it stands no chance. Many of Sarah Waters books are now classics, because they are original and long with depth, same with Kristen Zimmer, and a few others, excluding Radclyffe the worst of all.
A book needs to have a good storyline, that grips you to each next chapter to the very last word!! Leaving you wanting another book, read my 5star reviews, awesome books, addictive, for many reasons, such as Gravity Between us remains funny and great all the way through, the Miseducation of Cameron Post, Letters never sent by Sandra Moran, WILD by Meghan O'Brien, the mafia style The Devil Inside by Ali Vali., the eerie Photograph Tale by Jane Retzig-there is no way you can imagine how it ends!...I can't list all the 5 star reads in a review of a lesser book, I'm just saying, there are some 100% quality books out there and here on Audible, and when you read a good review, decide to buy it, only to find it a waste of time and money it's not fair.
There are some fabulous reads out there and the thing they have in common is you have no idea what the next sentence will be, let alone a chapter, additionally once reaching the end you feel, oh no...I need another chapter, or a follow up book, that's when you give 5 stars.
when a book is so predictable that it is a yawn..say so. I don't like a misleading review.
If you want something light and predictable look at the 2+3 star rated.
