Sweet Carolina GirlsSweet Carolina Girls by R.E. Bradshaw

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

My review is from a first edition, I think, because I can’t seem to find mine on Amazon. So I am posting this on the second edition pages.

Although I finished reading this one a couple days ago, it is still fresh in my mind. Yes, I am late in reviewing. But as I said in the review just before this (Before It Stains) life has had me busy with this project and that. Today I am ignoring those projects to try and catch up on my reviews.

Funny having read Before It Stains before this book. It might work out better in reverse. This story shows how the wrong attitude for a break-up can spoil everyone’s point of view. So I recommend you read this one first. Even if these are not the same characters. And maybe because I have the earlier edition, I think I can see how Decky’s writing has improved.

I have to admit that I get sick and tired of perfect characters in books. It is not just a R.E. Bradshaw thing that the main characters are always slim and beautiful with the perfect shoes and hairdos. But beyond that, the traits of the characters are realistic enough. The situations keep the story feeling real while most make it seem–a story. So I have to admit this wasn’t my favorite book by this author. Still, I think I will remember it as one more cautionary tale.

Before It StainsBefore It Stains by R.E. Bradshaw

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wow! am I behind! I finished this book and Sweet Carolina Girls a few days ago and am onto my next books. So sorry to not review this sooner. More sorry to me than you. Because NOW I have to think back to this book and my experiences with it. I blame: Christmas, Snow, sewing projects, crocheting projects, etc., etc.

Luckily this book had some memorable moments for me. I can remember ordering it so long ago (a year?) because I have read other books by ‘Decky’ (R.E. Bradshaw, author). They were mystery/thrillers that just happened to have lesbian main characters. So look at the cover. Before It Stains? Yep, I thought it was about blood on one’s hands, even though the picture shows wine with the wine glass. I don’t like murder mysteries or thrillers because I read these books at bedtime. Well. lucky me! This wasn’t one of those!

Instead, this is about what can go wrong in any relationship. In this case, the main characters are lesbian. But this scenario would go with any romantic relationship. It is a cautionary tale to keep us all loving and forgiving of those we love. I don’t think that counts as a spoiler. I think it helps others who might not have read books about lesbians or gays to be open to expanding their reading horizons.

I love how Decky writes, regardless of who she writes about or the genre the book is in. Her characters are real people in real places, at least, they feel that way. It takes a talent to pull that off. Ms. Bradshaw is that talented!
