    One thought on “Course of Action”

    1. 4 stars. Overall an enjoyable read. I'd give it 4.5 or even maybe 5 stars if not for some pet peeves of mine like "I love you" that drops too fast or overstated and grand declarations of love all the time. It's a bit too soapy for my taste but I did enjoy both the characters and the story. I also wish the story explored the family aspect with Beth more and her/her husbands reaction of their relationship which was completely skipped. Instead a lot of drama was focused on more external things. I f [...]

    2. Edit: I had given this four stars, but I'm revising it to five because I've read it three times now, so I clearly love it.Lovely. There wasn't really any conflict to their relationship, but this was one of those times where I didn't mind because I liked watching them grow from like to love to something established.2016 reread: still love it. It has problems, but I love it so much that I can overlook or skim past all of them. Full review here: thelesbianreview/cours

    3. I savored this story this time around. I loved the slow buildup between the two MCs Annelie and Carolyn. And the vulnerable girl that comes out when Carolyn sets the 'Diva' in herself aside. I also loved how protective she was of Annelie when anyone tried to hurt her. Very sweet love story that I will read again and again.

    4. I am rereading some of Gun Brooke's books and I enjoyed Course of Action immensely again. Four and a half stars, rounded up considering it is the author's first published novel.

    5. just some quick notes. both because late at night and because one of my hands has kind of died on me (as in, it all numbed and stuff) so can't write/type.My second book by this author. I read this one next, after the one I loved, because of two reasons - (1) first book released; (2) involves Hollywood and stuff like that.I had several problems with the book. Some of the action/reaction/stuff seemed over the top. I didn't need to read yet another book involving a straight woman who suddenly reali [...]

    6. Maybe this is closer to three stars when you factor in context, but I spent a lot of time rolling my eyes here. So. Let's write a little script, shall we?Scene: Miami house owned by Annelise, also known as ANGELDUST. House somehow manages to be both ostentatious and understated. Angeldust, resident publisher/producer/lottery winner/philanthropist/all around A+ amazing/classy person, swans classily around the house. Enter Carolyn, also known by her street name CRISSYMETH. Crissymeth, an actress, [...]

    7. Carolyn Black, what a great character. That she is a famous actress does not mean that she isn't just as sensitive as any other woman. She comes across differently than who she really is. But that does not work with Annelie Peterson, she looks through Carolyn rigid character and sees her for who she really is. But if Annelie discovers how this version of Carolyn touches her, she does not know whether she should be happy about it. Love runs as it should. Even though it is sometimes difficult, it [...]

    8. 3.5 stars. I didn't mind this book but felt there were too many subplots/ distractions being introduced throughout the book (the father, the sister, the headaches, etc). It could have been 50-100 pages shorter with more focus on the actual story and character development of the main protagonists.

    9. 2.5 starsQuite flat and the writing is not exactly smooth, even too cheesy at times. I have always wonder how Carolyn, being the influential Hollywood diva, seems to struggle with money.

    10. 3.5Definitely better written than most, but I felt like there was something missing. Not sure what. Enjoyable read still though.

    11. Two main characters. Annelie Peterson owns a publishing company, and is also a philanthropist thanks to winning the lottery. She decides to produce the movie versions of the best selling Diana Maddox (lesbian criminal investigator) books. The other lead is heretofore straight Carolyn Black described several times as "older" and a "diva" but also talented actress who is the popular voice in the audio version of those books. She is aggressively pursuing the starring role in the movies. In the cour [...]

    12. I loved this book so much! I can only recommend it. First of all I liked both characters, Carolyn and Annelie come across as 2 very strong and independant women who both have their weaknesses and learn how to overcome them by asking others for help when needed and not being to proud to ask. Furthermore what makes this novel different from others is the'course of acztion' because usually you have to read the whole book and only at the end both characters admit their feelings for each other and so [...]

    13. Actual score 1.75 rounded up to 2 because at least there were minimal typos etcAll the characters were too perfect -- there was basically no conflict, or angst or anything to make it interesting.Personal peeve -- I can't stand the word 'lover' and it was (over)used a huge amountI swoon at a declaration of love as much as the next person but these were way too frequent and nauseatingly sickly sweet.Lots of over explaing and telling rather than being drawn in to feel things with / alongside the ch [...]

    14. Absolutely love this book! It is a rare glimpse into the first few months of a lovely relationship. Most books are mostly about how the characters come together. The characters here come together and then we get to read about how their relationship blossoms. It so sweet and tender. A few loose ends(ie telling some family members) and at some points the dialogue is a little unrealistic but overall such a darling love story!

    15. This was my third or fourth reading of "Course of Action", and somehow it just gets better and better every time!
