    4. I knew Carol Rosenfeld s poetry a little but I wasn t prepared for the sophisticated fineness of her lovely, somewhat satiric, comedy about a woman s first lesbian crush The heroine is unnervingly named Bambi Devine and worse she s employed by a mad Latino queen Eduardo as a Wedding Planner So how could a woman be any less gay Well, Bridget McKnight walks in one day as sister to a bride to be and there goes the Ker rush sh And who wouldn t fall for Bridget I almost did and I m not femme at all M [...]

    5. This book enchanted me It s the story of an older lesbian coming out while being infatuated with someone who s already in a relationship.I was lucky I came out early Regardless, I identified a lot with the novel s main character, Bambi Devine there s a cute reason given on how she got that name All of us, no matter what our sexual orientation, have fallen for someone who didn t love us back And whether that person gave us a sign that something might happen, or we simply misunderstood the signals [...]

    6. The One That Got Away is a fun read about a middle aged woman coming out as a lesbian for the first time Don t worry It s not one of those dreary, whoa is me everybody hates me because I m gay type of stories Mostly it s funny and much of it reminded me of my own late coming out.The first person narrator is B.D which is short for Bambi Devine Her name causes her a great deal of embarrassment I thought Bambi Devine sounded a little like a stripper so I couldn t blame B.D for just using her initia [...]

    8. I received this book for free as a FirstRead in exchange for an honest review.This was a very cute story about a newly out woman making her first forays into the dating scene I found her story touching, and enjoyed the characters I would have liked to see a little development in the relationships between characters, but with the story being quite short, I was not overly surprised that the development wasn t evident There were quite a few unanswered questions at the end of the book, but I don t [...]

    9. This is a sweet, fun, engaging story It made me laugh out loud several times, from recognition or from a startling turn of phrase The writing is very solid, the characters rendered realistically, and the story is amusing, sweet, and poignant by turns It also happens to be the perfect length to read on the plane A very worthwhile book

    10. Chuckled all the way through Rosenfeld s delightful debut A thinking woman s romance, I m glad I didn t let this one get away.
