Dumond makes her debut with a queer romance set in Oklahoma in the early 2010s before same-sex marriage was legal. A queer, but not openly out, baker and bartender, Amy has always focused on the needs of others and not her own. After successfully subbing as a bridesmaid and getting paid for it, Amy decides to make the bridesmaid gig into a business when she’s fired from her bakery job as soon as her boss finds out she’s queer. Then one day, she meets Charley, an attractive professional woman and new resident of Tulsa, and Amy has to decide what it means to be true to herself. Amy eventually finds herself by embracing who she is in all aspects of her life and in the process finds love. This fun, romantic read is brought to life by narrator Kimberly M. Wetherell.
VERDICT A testament to living one’s authentic life, creating a chosen family, and finding happiness, this title would be a wonderful addition to any collection looking to add LGBTQIA+ romance.
