- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
Big city girl in a small town—Liddy Peel has culture shock. Marian Pardoo, Reference Librarian for the Iowa City Public Library, would be happy if the woman she’s loved for years wasn’t already married. Annoyed by the thoughtless out-of-town Liddy, she isn’t prepared for the seething passion that erupts when Liddy careens into her meticulously controlled life.
Liddy has run two thousand miles from a devastating love affair. Now the idea of spending the sweltering summer watching the corn grow is driving her mad. Finding herself lusting after Marian the Librarian seems like yet another cosmic jest at her hopeless love life. The only thing that keeps her sane is the coffee.
In a town where everybody knows your name, the names of your exes, pets, and your third grade teacher, Marian is thankful that she and Liddy at least don’t have an ex-girlfriend in common.
One degree of separation is too close for comfort.
A hilarious, erotic and insightful story of a close-knit community in America's Heartland from master storyteller Karin Kallmaker.

What are the chances? They say anyone can be connected to another person with six degrees of separation. What happens when there is only one? One woman, trying to recover from an abusive relationship takes a job in a town where she meets a woman who is also recovering from the same type of situation. Although somewhat attracted to each other, they both voice the ¿I¿m not looking for a relationship¿ comment. Tentatively forming a friendship, they begin to spend more and more time together. Can they heal the wounds that each is carrying, learn to trust and to love again? And just what exactly is the one degree separating them? A fantastic story, where the writer weaves a tale taking the reader on a journey filled with drama, intrigue and at times, laughter. Once again the skills of the writer are very evident in the story, interlocking the lives of the characters with everyday situations and obstacles placed in their paths and of friendships forged. A terrific book! Another in the long line of well-written books by a fantastic writer!
I will say that this book was truly one of the most enjoyable romances that I have read in a long time. Karin Kallmaker had me from the first chapter in this book! I read it in one sitting. Other lovers of romances will not be disappointed with this book!
