And now the sometimes too-helpful inquisitive young butch Jo just has to say yes to another friend whose long-ago lover, Honey Lou Wright, is missing.
Last seen in the lake country of Oklahoma, which I didn't even know existed until this novel, Honey Lou has quite a few secrets and a whole cast of comedic characters surrounding her disappearance. Dan'l is a convenient home on wheels when Jo encounters a new lover of her own.
Anne Seale brings lesbian-feminist issues into her books, in a never-too-preachy way, and this time Jo finds herself infiltrating a battered women's shelter, even if on false pretenses.
But after all, she is a woman who has been battered, even if by a boat, and she does manage to pick up the trail of the elusive Honey Lou.
This is the book to bring to the beach this summer, or to a women's music festival, or even to your lonely bedroom when you need a lift and a laugh.

I like this series because Jo is Jo. The money she inherited at the end of the first book (apologies if that's a spoiler) hasn't changed her at all. I'd like the next one to show her life in Buffalo though; that aspect of her world seems lacking, and will be more so should she continue driving off to other locales.
One thing though: I find JoDell a "funnier" name than Honey Lou.
