Rude, brassy, and unapologetic, nobody ever accused Deidre Tanaka of being polite, but she’s always known exactly what she wanted — until now. Deidre used to think she was a lesbian until she met a gay man named Jesus Washington and found herself in an uneasy triangle with Jesus and her girlfriend, Rachel Wallace. As if that weren’t messy enough, after years of a cool, distant relationship with her widowed dad, Deidre has been approached by a man who claims to be her real father.
The next few weeks will challenge all of Deidre’s assumptions and force her to reexamine everything she believes about her love, her family, and herself.
This was my second novel. It takes place chronologically after both Double Yellow Line and The Shield of Athena and the Ghost of a Chance, involving characters from both, but it’s not a direct sequel, so it can be read as a stand-alone piece. (About the cover.)
