This is the latest installment from the Bluewater series – all (except for one) of the books in this series has been great, so I purchased this without reading the “about” section, so I had absolutely no idea what to expect.

This is the first book I’ve reviewed where one of the main characters identified as transgender. I have to say, this book was very well done – and took a situation which could seem a bit uncomfortable for people who do not read a lot of books outside of the gay man/gay man story line, and made it not only accessible but also engaging.

The main characters are a stunt double from the popular Wolf’s Landing and owner/operator of a B&B. It’s not an easy love story, but that’s what makes it so fantastic. They struggle. They search for answers. They have fun. They love each other.

I highly recommend this book to people who like a good love story, with bumps in the road, ups and downs, and a “reality” check. Also, if you haven’t ventured into books with a transgender character, start with this one. (You may need to google a few pronouns that come up…)

Out of four…
