2015 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Smoothie by Jane Elliot

Smoothie by Jane Elliot
Lesbian Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Manifold Press (August 1, 2015)
Amazon Kindle: Smoothie

Nothing much ever happens to Heather, until the day she’s innocently minding her own business when a bomb goes off – and she’s precipitated into the kind of adventure which in her world only happens to people on TV! Thankfully she’s about as prepared and resourceful as a girl can be, because all of a sudden she’s in the middle of a road movie along with an extraordinary woman named Natalie – the two of them running for their lives into and out of a mess of complicated situations in which nobody is ever quite what he or she might appear to be …

Quirky, fun romance story, almost unbelievable but still couldn't put it down!  Loved Heather, Natalie.

You know how Bourne or Mission Impossible movies, no matter how implausible, are always completely believable while you’re enjoying them on the big screen? That’s Smoothie. Short review? Must read page turner that will leave you laughing, gripping the arm of your chair, and cheering for the underdog right to the end. A fascinating read. True writer’s craft. Depth of characters that are so real you’re sure you’ll bump into them on the street tomorrow. And as in real estate location, location, location comes to mind here. Not that the locations are particularly special or dramatic alone. But the depth and breadth of description… the picture that is painted throughout. A truly admirable piece of work. Books occasional move from between their covers  to the big screen. But this is the first time I’ve seen the big screen in all its technicolor, surround sound, and a pair of A list actors brought from the big screen to the pages of a book.
