Book Review: Georgia Peaches and Other Forbidden Fruit
AUTHOR: Jaye Robin Brown
PUBLISHED: August 2016
GENRE: Contemporary, Romance
PREMISE: An out and proud girl agrees to not advertise her sexuality for her father's sake when they move to a new town. Trouble starts however, when she starts falling for a local girl...
MY REVIEW: I've been meaning to get to this one for quite awhile. As far as a contemporary romance: it does the trick. If you loved things like Simon VS the Homo Sapiens Agenda or just want a sweet LGBTQA romance with minimal angst, this is a good one to pick up.
Not to say there isn't angst, there is as the girl Joanna becomes involved with struggles with whether or not to come out, but no one dies, Joanna gets her girl. This is quite possibly, the happiest lesbian romance I've ever read. It's always nice to see happy LGBTQA romances out there. The world needs more of them.
Along with general cute romance, this makes a lot of good points about faith and the LGBTQA community. I wish I had gotten to this one last year. It definitely would have made the favorites list. Ah well, it's going on the best of the backlist books list at least.
WHO SHOULD READ: Simon VS the Homo Sapiens Agenda fans, those looking for relatively happy LGBTQA books
MY RATING: Four out of Five happy feelings
