Just Like That by Karin Kallmaker 



Karin Kallmaker's lesbian retelling of Pride and Prejudice pits first impressions against last chances in this lush wine country story. 

Syrah Ardani tried independence - but the call of the Napa Valley hills and rolling vineyards of her family's winery have brought her home again. She is content with her ordered world until she learns that her father's feckless management has put Ardani Vineyards into receivership. 

Corporate turnaround specialist Toni Blanchard's arrival is preceded by tales of her slash-and-burn techniques. Determined to meet this soulless corporate raider head on, Syrah proudly prepares to do battle for her home and family business. Toni has reason to retreat from a high-pressure Manhattan lifestyle, not the least of which is a bitter break up. She's been told that Syrah Ardani is attractive and single, but Toni never mixes business and pleasure.  

Creditors clamor for a quick sale and payment. The beautiful--and hostile--Syrah wants Toni off her land and out of her life. Their clashes smolder with distrust and resentment, but also threaten to light a completely different kind of fire. Most dangerous of all is the one thing Toni can't control--the way her heart reacts when Syrah looks at her...just like that.

Women And Words: Thoughts on Bright Fucking Pink and Throat Punch

April 2, 2017

Women and Words

Overview 26-31 March 2017


It’s probably a good thing that Andi and Jove don’t have the job of naming paint colors, because they’re not sure how well “bright fucking pink” would go over at stores, though they would totally buy something named that. Also, they determine that “Five Finger Death Punch” is an actual band after Andi muses that maybe “Throat Punch” would be a cool name for a music act. For the record, Andi looked it up and dang it, that name is also already taken.


26 Mar.: Author Jean Copeland stopped by to chat about her latest release, The Second Wave, and she draws some parallels between the protests and women’s rights movements of the 1970s featured in her book with today’s political climate.

Jove provides a heads up regarding a week-long writers’ retreat at the end of April that author Lori Lake is doing at Rockaway Beach, Oregon. She and Andi both agree that if they had the disposable income at the moment, they would totally do this.


Of course, having both Jove and Andi on a writers’ retreat AT THE SAME TIME IN THE SAME PLACE might not be a good idea…muah ha ha
