Summary

On the fairway of life, love comes when you least expect it.

Diane Thompson is happy enough. Her successful accounting firm allows her plenty of time to play all the golf she wants and enjoy her life in small Sussex village Tynebury. She's finally over the divorce from her husband, but potential suitors are few and far between for a 50-something woman in the English countryside.

Tamsin Foxley is determined to keep matters of the heart separated from her new teaching job at the Royal Tynebury Golf Club after a disastrous romantic experience put an end to her previous employment. She has also vowed to no longer fall for women almost half her age.

When the new season starts at the golf club, Diane and Tamsin become fast friends. Their feelings for each other quickly go in an unexpected direction and they both have to reevaluate what it is they want from life. Can Diane overcome her fear of falling for a woman? And can Tamsin accept her taste in women may have changed?

Read Below

I am not a fan of gratuitous sex scenes; however, in this story, a love-scene would have solidified protagonists' chemistry and intimacy in the reader's mind!
The story is great but with a love-scene would have been magnificent!

Harper can do it all!

This book/audio book (read and heard them both) proves that Harper Bliss is a master at the English language. Not only can she write beautiful pose, but she can interweave nuance into innuendo so that the reader is lost in her imagination. Yes, it's tame by Bliss standards, but nevertheless charming and romantic. I recommend this book in either or both mediums.

Carmen Rose is such a treat!

Was excited to see this book show up, Harper Bliss paired Carmen Rose seems like a sure thing!
Season of Love is probably one of my all time favorites. And this book has a lot of similarities, though admittedly it's a bit more tame on the sexy side, than the former.
Still, I enjoyed this one immensely, Carmen Rose is just the best narrator.

Good story/ No love scene/AMAZING NARRATOR

I was so happy to see a Harper Bliss book with Carmen Rose as the narrator (Seasons of Love is one of my all time favorites) but I think this story needed a love scene and I found it a little dull and draggy without it. The story was still ok overall.

Love this book and not for the obvious reasons

I will start with what I didn’t like: I didn’t like the narration, but sometimes you just need to hang in there and not loose interest in a book even if you don’t really like the narration. Carmen Rose, sounded so bored with this book, that it was heartbreaking.
Now to what I liked. OK so some people were disappointed that there were no sex scenes, I was not. It reminded me of the books I read in the 90’s, when I first came out and started reading lesbian novels. They were of all ages, and this book is for us the older ladies, and most of them were of coming out, and discovering lesbianism... I loved the latebian that was created here... I was / am a latebian as well so I related.
I don’t need a hot sex scene to actually feel the heat of the relationship in the book, it is nice to have a hot scene but it is not a must. And this book proved it.
So, to conclude: I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!

Overall good book!

I enjoyed this book and the characters. They had good chemistry and I could relate to their challenges. Highly recommend if your looking for a nice, quick listen.
