Delilah Green Doesn’t Care

Berkley. (Bright Falls, Bk. 1). Feb. 2022. 400p. ISBN 9780593336403. pap. $16. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
Delilah Green is only coming back to Bright Falls, OR, to photograph her stepsister Astrid’s wedding, but sparks ignite almost immediately when Delilah and her stepsister’s longtime friend Claire Sutherland meet again. While they’re both sure of their attraction, the pre-wedding festivities mean that their focus should be on Astrid—whether they’re attending her carefully planned events or plotting to break up her engagement to a possessive misogynist. What follows is a series of fun, steamy hookups derailed by real adult life: Claire has a tween daughter, and Delilah is trying to launch her art career in New York. Can they sabotage Astrid’s relationship while they build their own? This is Blake’s adult debut; her experience in middle grade and young adult (Hazel Bly and the Deep Blue Sea) shows in Claire’s relationship with her daughter and her ex.
VERDICT The connection among Claire’s friends and the development of Delilah’s backstory add depth to a fun hometown romance, planned as the start of a series of Bright Falls–set queer romances.
