From the first chapter, you will be drawn in. This book is one of the best coming out books I've read. ( note, this is really not about coming out it's just something with in the story of one of the characters that blossoms) I highly recommend it yo anyone who wants a feel good read with a great and satisfying ending.
The author tells an excellent story and the whole concept of the novel is a good one; unfortunately the underlying concept drops the level precipitously. Genevieve Applegate is a straight woman who answers an add without really looking at it and finds herself posing as a lesbian and writing for an LGBT periodical. The premise that causes the problem for me is that the author takes the job without doing any research or preparing a cover story; thus keeps being surprised by questions and situations she would have logically come up with stories to cover. Then even when apprised of the nature of the office culture, she does only cursory research and still doesn't assemble any sort of fictional life story. Then there is the shock she feels when approached by women as if it's an unimaginable happening; every time it happens. The lead characters are well drawn and likable and the secondary players work quite well. If you can appreciate a good story despite a bad premise and can suspend disbelief in order to enjoy a good narrative, give this one a shot.
