Delilah Green Doesn’t Care

Penguin Random House Audio. Feb. 2022. 11:41 hrs. ISBN 9780593551691. $22.50. F
Blake’s debut, the start of an expected queer romance series, weaves together stories of women facing down painful memories while making tentative steps toward romance. Delilah Green has tried to convince herself that she doesn’t care about her sad childhood or her uptight stepsister Astrid or her boring hometown. But when Astrid insists that Delilah return to Bright Falls to photograph her high-society wedding, her carefully constructed shell of nonchalance breaks down. An unexpected romance with former supposed mean girl Claire forces Delilah to reconsider everything she thought she knew about her own past and future. Narrator Kirsten DiMercurio brings these quirky characters to life with the perfect mix of sarcasm and sweetness. She creates distinct voices for the core cast of very different women and keeps the snappy dialogue flowing. As the plot grows more complicated and fevered, DiMercurio’s steady pacing won’t let listeners down.
VERDICT Perfect for fans of Jasmine Guillory and Casey McQuiston or those wanting the drama of a Hallmark movie with steamier romance.
