…how do you get back to normal, when your lover doesn’t remember you, and doesn’t even recall being a lesbian?
“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 couldnâ€™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, itâ€™s a real rollercoaster ride of highs and lows. I simply couldnâ€™t put this book down and couldnâ€™t turn the pages fast enough. I had to force myself to slow down. I wouldnâ€™t advise starting this late at night, unless you donâ€™t need to sleep.The two main characters, Tru and Brit are poles apart throughout most of the book. I donâ€™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 wasnâ€™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 Iâ€™ve read by this author, now that Iâ€™ve found her, Iâ€™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 youâ€™d love to meet in real life, and I warmed to her immediately. Sheâ€™s that well-rounded type of character that makes reading a real pleasure. This is a story about a relationship, but itâ€™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 donâ€™t want to give any of the details away, but the storyline is great â€“ suspenseful and nothing left dangling; itâ€™s all pulled together extraordinarily well. By the time I reached the end of the book I was well-satisfied and smiling.”
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.
