5.0 out of 5 stars I was laughing throughout the book Dec 31 2006
I read this book over two nights of night shift - I couldn't put it down once I started. Kate Allen has not only given us believable characters but has also, accurately captured lesbian life. If you buy this book for nothing else make sure you read the chapter where they come home to the open door. This one chapter is enough to buy the book. But really folks this is a good mystery with believable characters. You've got your mystery your characters, a hilarious look at lesbianism - and it's hot.

5.0 out of 5 stars From mystery to sociology Feb. 14 2002
I have been enjoying this series because the books work on many levels. They are all good mysteries with excellent characters.
But Allen also looks at the various social divisions within the lesbian community and how these divisions have real boundaries around them. Of course, Allen's characters try to break down some of these barriers, but these barriers sometimes get in the way of the murder investigation, making these social divisions very real.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can a quilt maker also be an S&M dominatrix? Aug. 15 2001
By carlaf
To be truthful, I was reluctant to buy this book because of the S&M aspect of it but Kate Allen makes it funny! Allison Kaine is a cop whose vacation was ruined because some friends bowed out on her. Ever the optimist, Allison is determined to have a miserable week and goes off to sulk at a park where she meets Stacy, the goalie for a lesbian soccer team. The two of them hit it off and find that they both like to quilt. What Allison finds out rather quickly is what Stacy does for a living - she is a dominatrix giving women their S&M fantasies for a price. Allison is a bit confused by all of this and tries to find out what she can about it. Stacy is upset when she finds out Allison is not into leather - she is tired, as she says of giving lessons in S&M 101. However, their attraction to each other is undeniable. Meanwhile, while all of this is going on, several lesbians have been murdered, all of whom were clients of Stacy. Allison doesn't want to think Stacy is involved but her cop's mind can't let go of the possibility. Kate Allen is witty and funny and doesn't just have a go at S&M but also new age lesbians and back to nature lesbians and with all the people involved and everything going on, it still manages to make sense in the end. A good read and the ending is very exciting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tell Me What You Like Feb. 23 2000
By Beverly
This book sizzled with enticement. It couldn't get to the part I really wanted between Stacy and Alison, but it was well worth the wait. Character development and actual ground work for the major plot were excellent. Kate brings you right on the set. The waiting is what makes a book good. Couldn't lay it down!
