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 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.

Simple toward simplistic

Late in life coming out out story. Sweet but nothing to it. I’m not sure how they have built a whole series on this.

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 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.

Great book

If you’re a “late-bian” as referenced in this book as coming out later in life... this book is for you. The main character is a 44 divorced mother of 2. This is a positive book to read. One of Harpers more innocent stories. Great nonetheless. Angela Dawe is good. Only thing I was a tad bit disappointed in as far as the narration went was I’ve heard Angela Dawe speak with some impeccable accents in other books (specifically her renditions of Lee Winters stories) and I know she can pull off Australian accents. I was surprised she went with typical American English voices instead. Specifically for the main character, who is Australian. Still great narration regardless. Great book. Hopefully this series gets even better from here.
Onto book #2 😃
