Publisher's Summary

Small town love isn't always quaint: A lesbian romance...with some twists.

Lucinda Hamilton settles down in sleepy Reverie, South Carolina, because she's running from the troubles of her past. But when her dangerous ex-husband evades law enforcement, she fears that no amount of running will ever make her safe again.

Two women are determined to keep Lucinda's past at bay - the mysterious young nurse living on the other side of Lucinda's duplex, who won't even tell Lucinda her name, and Ardie Brown, an ex-marine who's recently moved back to Reverie herself. It's hard for Lucinda to trust either one of them; it's even harder to admit to herself that she's falling for both of them.

What will happen when Lucinda's ex-husband finally catches up to her? Will the girl next door or Ardie have the power to stop him?

Or will Lucinda finally have to face her past all by herself?

A "must read"

Finished this book last night and now I can't stop thinking about it. It's an incredibly creative, unique story, and it'll make you examine your reality. It'll make you want to go back and read it again to catch all the "clues" you might have missed the first time around. Eliza Andrews' writing is beautiful, and the narration here will have you experiencing the story as if you're right there with the characters. I can't recommend this book highly enough.

lesbian thriller with a definite twist!

I really enjoyed this audio book. Near the beginning I thought it was slow paced but by the time you are halfway through you'll be rushing to finish the book because you want all the plot revealed. Lucinda showed up in reverie, mourning the loss Of her dead girlfriend and On edge, worryingThat her ex husband will track her down and kill her. She meets some new friends and sees some old friends. I can't say much more Because there is a definite plot twist and you will never figure it out. ha. There were a couple times where I thought I had figured it out but now. The ending was a surprise. It will definitely make you think. This is not your typical love story. It's more of a psychological thriller With some sex scenes. Definitely a good listen.

Very well done

So, this is not your average lesbian romance novel...and that's the good news. What a beautiful, multi-layered story that winds the listener/reader into places unanticipated. The characters are beautifully developed and once again, not your average lesbian romance novel women. They aren't all thin, tightly abed, taunt breasted women who get wet with a look and come within 3 minutes of engaging is an sexual adventure. What the author does is bring the richness out of each of the main characters because of...and despite of her appearance. And that's just one thread to the tapestry of this story. Time is a major theme...past, present and future woven into the telling of the story to set us a little askew as we listen or read. You need to pay attention, but that attention is well rewarded. The story is rich and heartbreaking and hopeful and complete.

WOW

The only book that made me just think when it ended. not about the book itself but my life, my life growing up in the south. I know pee tend to connect with certain books but I personally never have, until now. and again not with the actual story but the feeling within the story. everyone should give this book a chance but if you are from the south I think you will understand what I just said more.

Gripping story

Engaging dialogue with plot twist. This writer is amazing and highly entertaining. A different sort of romance but a must-read nonetheless!

Unique

This is the second time I've listened to this audiobook and although the unexpected elements didn't surprise me like the first time around, I enjoyed the story just as much. I can honestly say that it's one of my favourite audiobooks. The narration was superb - a perfect fit for the story.
I also love that with Eliza Andrews you never know what to expect - so far each of her books were different. Highly recommended for everybody who prefers unique stories instead of formulas.

A chance adrift in heartache

I was lost and then I was found in the end of what reality was. Just because you thought that what it was suose to be then of what it was. I was hooked, line and sinker. Just what love could be then it should be.

Something different, great book!

This is not your average lesfic romance. Although it has that too, with tender and sexy moments. This has depth and darkness and love and hope. Great characters whose struggles were so real. They really crept into my heart. If you want sweet and happily ever after in the traditional sense, this isn't for you. If you want your world rocked by extraordinary writing, It's a mesmerising and addictive journey. It was recommended by a writer (Jeannie Levig) in a lesfic facebook group, and I am so glad I followed her advice to check this out.
The narrator suited the book perfectly. Her honeyed voice with its rich Southern accent captured each character and mood. As the author says, the South itself is one of the characters too. Eliza Andrews deserves a much higher profile than she has. Can't wait for another book from her.

If I could give this book zero stars I would.

First of all, the person on the cover photo does not match any character described in the book. It is there simply to attract certain readers. Secondly, the narration made this book very difficult to listen to. Each character had multiple degrees of southern accent. I found the story somewhat predictable, but although I didn't enjoy the story, it was nice that it wasn't a typical les-fic.

Loved it

Great love story set in the US deep south. sometimes funny sometimes sad. The narrator is very talented with the various voices. Bit of a twist at the end, didn't see that coming.

Intriguing, atmospheric and moving

Gosh, this seemed to be rattling along, beautifully, though predictably, until suddenly it shifted into something else. I actually cried twice during this story, at the same scene, told from different perspectives... It takes a lot to make me cry. I also loved the author's note at the end... It's left me emotional.. I totally understood where the author was coming from, being a similar age I guess.
The story will stand up to many rereads... Mostly because it has depth and complexity, but also because the plot twists take some unravelling.
Sorry, this is a terrible review... It's hard to pigeon hole this, it's part love story, part whistful love letter to The South, part exploration of loss and grief and trauma. It's very readable, so don't be put off.
This just goes to prove yet again that Amazon Unlimited can have some brilliant writing. (I read this first). This felt like the very best wlw fanfic, a genre I love; emotional, brave, passionate and unusual.
The reader was also excellent, bringing an authenticity to the accents... Abby Craden can't read everything... ;) she was intelligent, seemed invested, and can read damn it!

Wonderful Book

This story was so unusual and was refreshing to read an alternative lesbian tale.
You will think you have it all worked out, but have you?

Wonderful reading/listening experience

I'm a big fan of Eliza Andrews' writing and she continues to impress with Reverie. It's been a while since a book affected me as much as this one. Excellent narration by Elizabeth Saydah made the books setting, in America's South, feel like an additional character. I couldn't recommend this title more highly.
