I keep telling everyone that I'm a sucker for an excellent love story, and I must say how much I enjoyed this story of love and near disaster and murder most foul!
Jesse is a woman in the midst of an emotional crisis who finally divorces her husband. She promises to winterize their cruiser, but she is kidnapped by an unsavoury person who turns out to be a young very attractive policewoman who was in on the murder of her police partner and lover. Jesse befriends young Jenny and cares for her throughout a forced cruise to Fort Lauderdale where Jenny gets shot.
Along the way Jesse and Jenny fall in love and their lesbian sexuality culminates in Jenny taking Jesse's "virginity."
Read and enjoy!
Get ready for an emotional roller coaster.
Jesse Anderson and Jenny Clark don't meet under the best of circumstances. Jesse is emotionally dead, her marriage fallen apart and not knowing what to do next. Jenny is nearly physically dead and desperate. Jenny becomes a reason for Jesse to go on - at least for a while.
What little sex there is in this story is pretty well done but definitely not the reason to read it.
The plot suffers a little from the brevity of the story and the somewhat cliched nature of the storyline. Corrupt New Jersey police New Jersey and the mob? - for many of us these go together like peanut butter an jelly.
Technically it is very well done. I particularly appreciate the feel that the story is told from two distinct time frames while being in past tense in both. In many stories with epilogues the feel is that the entire story is being told from a point after events told of in the epilogue.
