        Susan X Meagher was born in southern Illinois and grew up in East St Louis She attended college in Chicago and started her working career there She and her partner moved to the Los Angeles area in the late 80 s It was there that she started to write Her first few books were simply posted on the web and became the I Found My Heart in San Francisco series In 2002 she moved to New York and divides her time between Manhattan and the Jersey Shore She has published thirteen books in the series and has gone on to write many individual books as well She has partnered with other authors on two short story books and has written many stories that have been published in other mainstream anthologies Susan is active in the lesbian author community and loves to attend Women s week at Provincetown and the GCLS annual conventions Her stories revolve around the relationships that two women can build when given a chance and how those relationships can strengthen the individual and the partnership Her genre is lesbian romance fiction and she believes strongly in the happy ending that we all so deserve Susan X Meagher was awarded a 2011 Lesbian Fiction Readers Choice Award for Favorite Lesbian Fiction Writer She is the recipient of the 2014 Alice B Medal for her body of work.From the author s website I live in New York with my spouse, Carrie We ve lived in Chicago and Los Angeles for significant periods, but New York fits us very well I love to discuss my work and fiction in general My goal in writing is to explore feelings I want to entertain, but I also want to make people think I ve heard that life is all about finding out who we are To me, life if about finding out who other people are I m interested in the small details of life, that s how a story about two young women in college is slowly becoming a 26 book series The joke in Seinfield was that it was about nothing I feel the same about most of my books They are about the many things that happen when nothing is happening The small joys and sorrows of everyday life can be fascinating, especially if you care about the people involved I try to create characters that will make a reader care deeply I m always interested in hearing how close I am to that goal So please drop me a line whenever you have a comment or a question about a story Writing is a pretty solitary pursuit and it s great to know that I m not alone.

    1. Another great read with great main characters and great dialogue by one of my fav authors The epilogue, which can be found online, is a must read.4.5 stars


    2. Another excellent work by Susan X Meagher Despite the gun picture on the book s cover, this is mainly a romance As it turns out, Darcy, our heroine, finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time with a twist of fate, she ends up with a bag full of money, running from mob, beaten and bruised and accused of a murder she did not commit Phew I strongly recommend you to turn on your suspension of disbelief and just go with it.So, while trying to escape the big, bad guys, Darcy ends up enlisting [...]


    3. I always love Susan X Meagher s books, and she did not disappoint me with this one Although I have others I have loved , this was a great story I was glad there was to the ending on the website I didn t feel the story was finished in the book.


    4. Darcy and Tess are polar opposites They are as different in every single way upbringing, chosen professions, habits and outlook in life as night and day Darcy thrives on order and routine, while Tess suffers from lifelong wanderlust, appreciating the spontaneity and unpredictability of her travels Both are fairly successful in their professions It is entirely random that they meet and are thrown together in a life threatening situation Stuck with each other by circumstance and by choice, an unli [...]


    5. This is the first book I ve read by this author and it was most entertaining It s a definite page turner as well as a sweet romance Will definitely read her other books.


    6. I have never found a book by Susan X Meagher to be anything other than wonderful, nor have I found one that I have not wanted to put down This one is no exception.



    7. This was a delightful romp While the whole organized crime element was essentially a contrivance designed to bring the two unlikely leads together, I found both of those characters to be funny, charming, and full of entertaining quirks It worked for me Don t come to this looking for suspense, though While the first few chapters have some tense moments, this quickly settles down into pure romance.This is, for the most part, a story about two characters in a room The room changes once or twice, bu [...]


    8. Ok.If you want to get two polar opposite women to meet and get together in the end, use a cabin in the mountains during a freak blizzard have a plane crash in the jungle with only them as survivors and they get chased by drug dealers they happen to stumble over, I don t know, anything but what happens in this book.Because let me tell you It is so completely and uttery stupid and unbelievable, it s an insult to my intelligence and my euro s.While the romance is predictable but OK, Darcy and Tess [...]


    9. 2.5 starsSusan Meagher s work tends to be hit or miss for me This one was a miss.The characters felt very shallow, which was a bit of a surprise from this author The entire plot requires suspension of disbelief I was sufficiently warned from the story summary , but the subsequent decisions they made were just silly and I kept putting the book down because of it I did finish the book, but I don t think this is anywhere on par with Chef s Special or The Crush.


    10. Susan Meagher is a good writer Unfortunately, this is not one of her best books, especially if it is supposed to be a thriller to some extent It moved too slowly and there were pages and pages where nothing much happens The protagonists also don t have any chemistry and one doesn t feel the attraction till one is specifically told that it s there Tess reasons for giving up everything to stick with Darcy are also not convincing, again because there s telling and less showing.


    11. Amazing as alwaysSusan x Meagher just keeps getting better and better I love all her works and read them over and over again Keep it up.
