Overview

"Not only does [Love in the Balance] have love and excitement, but it has issues very close to all of us."—The Alabama Forum Gaiety

"Marianne Martin is a wonderful storyteller and a graceful writer with a light, witty touch with language and a sensitivity to the emotions of people in love."—Ann Bannon

Real life has a way of sneaking up on you.

Connie likes men. Sure, she's just dumped one, but she'll find another one soon enough. Instead she finds Kasey. Who happens to be a woman—a lesbian, actually. Connie reckons they'll be good friends, and she soon realizes she wants more.

But Kasey has already had her heart broken. Her ex-girlfriend turned out to like men. Kasey won't take a chance on that happening again. And her friends won't let her, either. Especially not Sharon.

If this is love, Connie has a lot of convincing to do and a lot of people to win over. Just when it seems like maybe she has, real life comes sneaking up again. Some people hate lesbians—hate them enough to kill. And it's not obvious that the authorities care. Connie and Kasey and Sharon must each put their doubts to the side and work together to get justice.

Marianne K. Martin is the author of eight novels and has been shortlisted three times for the Lambda Literary Award.

I read this book a couple years ago and didn't really form an opinion. It was just another book. It so happend that I read another book that featured some of these characters and didn't realize that i had this particular book at hand. It so happend that i reread it, and believe me when I say this, but i actually enjoyed it more the second time around. It is actually an awesome read. I now have read two other books by this same author and have immensely enjoyed them. I am now about to start another. . This is a good story, very enjoyable. I promise :) Lily El Paso, TX
