This book has it all: charming, intelligent and super sexy women, a heartwarming love strory, some humor, a very mysterious twist and lots of mouthwatering food. The main characters, Laleh and Hope are perfect together. Jae did a great job of researching and understanding the Persian culture. Laleh's family is an important part of this novel and it provides excellent secondary characters.
Jae's books are usually longer than many of the romances available in lesbian fiction; her publisher allows it. This book is no exception, yet it never feels like it's too long. This story is a page-turner that grabs the reader from the beginning.
