5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent romance September 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition

“Singer/songwriter Tru Morgan is totally in love with her live in girl friend Brittany (Brit) Jabot. Together they share a wonderful home on Red Mountain, Colorado. Their lives are idyllic, filled with their dreams, romantic nights and riding their beloved horses in a fairy tale, snowy setting. Life just couldn’t get much better for them…….

Until one day, a malicious chain of events ends up being the indirect cause cause of a tragic accident.
Tru finds herself fighting to find the life she once had with Brit. This in itself is an uphill struggle, but add to it disruptive outside influences and it is going to be almost an impossibility. Some people just do not want to see Tru and Brit back together.The question that has to be asked is….

Will Tru and Brit ever find their way back to the love so callously torn from them?

A well written and highly enjoyable romance, mystery and intrigue, with a light touch of humor. Although this story is basically a romance, there is so much more packed into it. So many twists and turns and ups and downs, it’s a real rollercoaster ride of highs and lows. I simply couldn’t put this book down and couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. I had to force myself to slow down. I wouldn’t advise starting this late at night, unless you don’t need to sleep.The two main characters, Tru and Brit are poles apart throughout most of the book. I don’t want to put in any spoilers, but the emotional ride they are on, is hard going for them. The only thing I will say is, I wasn’t disappointed with the outcome of the story. All the characters in the book were well formed and they each played their parts in progressing the story forward. The scenic descriptions made it easy to visualize being amongst the characters while the story evolves.One thing I particularly liked about this book is the way we saw how Tru and Brit got together in the first instance in flashbacks. I do like to know the background of the characters.This is the first book I’ve read by this author, now that I’ve found her, I’ll definitely be buying more.”Review by: UnfortunateGhost –“It is obvious right from the beginning of this book that Kelli Jae Baeli knows how to craft a great story. Her main character is the sort of woman you’d love to meet in real life, and I warmed to her immediately. She’s that well-rounded type of character that makes reading a real pleasure. This is a story about a relationship, but it’s set against a backdrop of events and places that serve to introduce and develop that relationship in a way that seems entirely natural and interesting. I don’t want to give any of the details away, but the storyline is great – suspenseful and nothing left dangling; it’s all pulled together extraordinarily well. By the time I reached the end of the book I was well-satisfied and smiling.”

Author’s Note

A portion and/or version of this book has been handed around for years to various proofreaders and friends, and I have about 127 copies of it on floppy disk, which I have recently transferred to CD. When I first started writing this book, floppies were relatively new and exciting. Now I mostly use them for coasters or mixed-media art.

This was the first novel I ever wrote, begun in 1988 after I came home from Basic Training and Quartermaster school. I have revisited this story sporadically over the years, while teething on other books. I decided to rewrite it and make it available. Since it has been sitting around for some 16 years-I laughingly refer to it as my first Historical Romance.

The inspiration for writing this book began after my tryst with a beautiful soldier in Quartermaster school, who is the Brittany character, (not her real name), but who has since fallen off the face of the earth. (Hey “Brit,” if you see this, get in touch. You know who you are.)

The other impetus stemmed from my continual frustration in finding a “lesbian” book I wanted to read. It seemed that all the characters in lesbian fiction were dark, troubled, addicted, or gender-confused. I wanted to write something that was more representative of what I knew of being a lesbian. So I took some personal experiences and a healthy dose of creative license, and this was the result.

I hope you enjoy it.

  2. Within an hour or so of writing that comment, I realized the editing oversight – I had to follow several links to find the review that was mixed with mine and understood immediately what had happened. I had a horrible experience with my reviews being used improperly before, so I very much overreacted. I am very sorry for that. I thought it was cool that you used my review. I was able to immediately remove my message to you on the other site, but this one had no way to remove or edit the comment at all, as it was awaiting moderation.

    I apologize to you for jumping to conclusions. I stand by my original review and I hope that everyone reads your books, as they are excellent reading material.

    Please accept my apologies and let me know if there is some way I can make it up to you.


    • Apology accepted. Thank you for having the character to contact me again and explain, and offer an apology to begin with. We all make mistakes, myself included. I’m fearful that Book 3 of the Rain Falls series might have too many errors–one reason it’s taking so long to finish–I have Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome and I find that it’s much harder to avoid making mistakes. Hopefully my editor will catch them. But as far as the formatting of the review text, that was my oversight. Glad we got this cleared up, and I appreciate you taking the time to do so. 🙂

  3. Lovely that you chose to use my Amazon review. I’m glad to help, as I still believe your novel was well written and delightful to read. I’m unimpressed with your lack of professionalism, though. I admit to writing everything up to the sentence about the beauty lying next to me. After that – that was NOT me. Just sayin’

    • Thanks for the kind words. As for the quote from you–it will take a little investigating, as your original review on Amazon seems to be under a different name now. But essentially, it seems to be merely an oversight in editing on my part…when placing lots of text on a page and formatting, sometimes bits get put together than don’t go together. I think that was meant to have a heading for another reviewer and a separation in there. Will look at that more closely tomorrow. I am sorry for the mistake, but am disheartened by your qualification that I was being unprofessional. When you are an Indie Author and Publisher, you have to do the job of at least 10 people, (aside from being the author) and there will be times when mistakes are made. I’m sorry I made this one. I have to get some sleep now, but I’ll remove your review tomorrow and use another; and again, please accept my apology for the error.
