Not-So-Straight Sue in KU by Cheyenne Blue

Not-So-Straight Sue

Lawyer Sue is totally, completely straight. Then she meets cute doctor Moni. Things get awkward. And kind of gay. And awkward again. A coming-out romance about small towns and big dreams.

“Sorry, I’m straight.” Those words, along with a smile, are how Sue Brent turns down women. The Australian lawyer, living in London, has the line down pat, but the truth is buried deep. So deep that sometimes Sue even manages to convince herself she’s not a lesbian. The only person in London who has ever seen through her façade is Moni, an American tourist.

After a date goes disastrously wrong, Sue has to confront the truth about herself. Leaving London, she returns home to Australia and buries herself in running an outback law practice in Queensland.

When Moni arrives in town to work as a doctor, Sue starts to see a path to happiness for the first time. But can their exciting new relationship survive the arrival of an unexpected visitor? Sue’s teenage, first love, Denise, has tracked Sue down to Mungabilly Creek to ask a favour.  Okay, definitely not awkward at all…

The Lesbian Review

Not-So-Straight Sue has a really easy style to it that sucked me in and left me wholly content by the time I was done. Although it doesn’t really follow the typical beats of a romance and is more about Sue’s personal journey (both literal across the outback and metaphorical as she begins to live openly as a lesbian), it so satisfying and my heart was so happy at the end.

This was a really good book to read. The story has more density to it than many others I’ve read for a while, and the main character is more complex. The flaws she has are reasonable and forgivable, and the plot works with her character really well.

It is very much a journey of healing and of realizing what are the most important things in life, and of self-discovery. The setting of the story, the landscape, is almost another character within the book, because both main characters have such a love for it, and it twines itself around their lives together.
