BLURB FROM THE COVER
Trust, respect, and love.
Three little words—that’s all. But these words are powerful, and if we ignore any one of them, then three other little words take their place: jealousy, insecurity, and heartbreak.
Schoolteacher Gemma Hughes is an ordinary woman living an ordinary life. Disorganised and clumsy, she soon finds herself in the capable hands of the beautiful Dr Maria Moran. Everything goes wonderfully until Gemma starts doubting Maria’s intentions and begins listening to the wrong people.
But has Maria something to hide, or is it a case of swapping trust for insecurity, respect for jealousy and finishing with a world of heartbreak and deceit? Can Gemma stop her actions before it’s too late? Or will she ruin the best thing to happen in her life?
Given her track record, anything is possible …
TUESDAY. FIVE-FORTY PM. SITTING in a room with sniffers and moaners and moaners and not feeling too bloody happy to be amongst the germ ridden, I can tell you. But it couldn’t be avoided; there was no other way. If there were, I would have done it. Believe me.
Smith’s novels are my secret indulgence – lesbian romantic fiction. Romantic fiction of any kind is usually something I’d go out of my way to avoid. There’s something appealing about Smith’s work. I like the humour and Britishness of her work. See Right Through Me is no exception. I really liked the way the story developed. Gemma, the main character and Dr Maria Moran, her love interest are two broken women who fall in love before they fall into bed. I liked the way their relationship developed. I liked how Maria’s jealous ex tried to break them up by sending a poison pen letter. I liked the crazy, stalker-like nurse. See Right Through Me is a fun, sweet, tender novel about the transforming power of love. See Right Through Me makes a nice change of pace from the usual stuff I read. I really enjoyed it.
