    1. This accomplished first novel by a bibliographer of Canadian lesbian fiction is classified by the publisher as a lesbian mystery However, it could as well be described as a black comedy of manners, a road trip novel, a study of grief in various forms, a realistic lesbian love story, or a novel of development The central character, Sam for Samantha , is moved to investigate the life of her deceased sister Chloe when she gets an anonymous note suggesting that Chloe s death in a legendary hangout f [...]


    2. Although this is billed as a lesbian mystery, it really doesn t fit that genre it fits comfortably as literature, Canadian Literature to be exact This is a well written and intriguing book that takes a bit thought than most of the books that I have been reading recently The story follows Sam, a young woman who seems rather at loose ends until she receives a postcard suggesting that her sister Choe s death was not a suicide She leaves her life in Toronto and moves to Montreal to trace her siste [...]

    5. I think this book is of a fiction book with the main character trying to solve the issue of her sister s death.
