2015 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention
Excellent, well-written contemporary general fiction novel with a touch of romance. I loved the relationship between the main character and her co-worker, male best friend. Carr had me laughing out loud in parts and tearing up in parts. Again, excellent job.
Here’s a blurb:
Lia is smart, successful, and best friends with Dean, a gay man who is just as neurotic as she. Life is smooth and flowing, unmarked by much more than a little family jealousy here and there, until she runs into Willow, an exciting enigma from her past. Willow, a psychic, receives a sense that something is off kilter surrounding Lia. Should she tell her, even though Lia, the person she’s never been able to stop thinking about since childhood, might run the other way? It’s a risk she decides to take, and Lia’s curiosity surprises her. As truths about life, love and uncertainties are unearthed, Lia and Willow, two women in love with each other, along with their friend Dean, learn to seek strength from unexpected places and people. Along their journeys, the three learn what a struggle it is to maintain their sandcastles as they embrace the parts of their lives that really matter. This book delves into the empowering world of holistic health, natural medicine, reiki healing, acupuncture, and health and wellness.
Wishing you the very best,
