Publisher's Summary

How far would you go to hide who you really are inside? And what do you do when you find the one person from whom hiding your true self isn't an option?
Glamorous movie star Dara Thomas has it all - an Oscar nomination, dozens of magazine covers proclaiming her the sexiest woman alive, and people of both sexes clamoring for her attention. She also has a carefully guarded secret life.
As Constance Darrow, Dara writes Pulitzer Prize-winning fiction, an outlet that allows her to be so much more than just a pretty face. Rebecca Minton is a professor of American Literature in love with the work of the mysterious, reclusive author Constance Darrow, with whom she strikes up a correspondence. A chance phrase in a letter leads her to a startling conclusion about the author. What happens next will change the course of both of their lives forever.

When It's Good

It's really good. There are many of the same old lame romance, lesbian, and lesbian romance stand-byes here; fortunately they're is also a great deal of inspired writing and two pretty damn good lead characters. I liked the unique manner the author used to get the characters together, I liked the redemption of Dara's mother and Rene Maupin, and the lack of a "heavy" in the narrative. Dara's friend Carolyn is another well written character; in fact this genre seems to run to excellent characters and weak, overly contrived plots with occasionally ridiculous plot twists.
Oftentimes this is done in service to a story that contains too much conflict for people who are presented just swimming with positive traits. If you're able to ignore the more ridiculous aspects pf plot and human reaction, this is an excellent read.

No betrayal required

The characters are well rounded and we get insight into their - sometimes - parallel thought processes.

It's so good to see the decisions some of us face written about in a calm and practical manner no melodrama about coming out just the gradual acceptance of our real selves.

I will be looking for more books by Lynn Ames

Not every novel is enhanced by addition of audio.

Any additional comments?

This award winning novel from best selling lesfic author Lynn Ames really should have worked well with the addition of audio and narration by a very experienced narrator. I really wish I had read the book first. The storyline had a LOT going for it and maybe the book itself could have been split into different novels in a series? For me the pace and enjoyment of the book really picked up considerably after Rebecca met up with Dara's bff and from then on it was a much easier listen. At times it was a bit saccharine sweet, but I guess that is more to personal taste/choice of reading material. The narrative was a bit too soppy for me at other times and I felt the characterisations could have been more developed. The trickiest part for me was the choice of voices. Rebecca sounded 16 and adolescent, and Dara sounded far too deep and more masculine than her characterisation suggested. The bff/business manager had the voice that would have best suited Dara imo.There were lots of interesting clever touches and very neat tying up of loose ends. Perhaps a couple of characters were superfluous to the plot? I'm glad I stuck with it because overall I enjoyed it.
