Something Tragic by Jessica Yeh

⭐⭐⭐⭐☆★ There are some books that hold you in a thrall of emotions that they create long after you’ve finished them. You have emotions...

The Payoff (ShudderCon #2) by Sienna Waters


This is a stretch-of-imagination romantic madcap entertainer replete with misunderstandings, miscommunication, inexplicable love, an over-the-top villain and that one big gesture in the climax.

Twenty-nine year old Caroline (Cali) Bell had hoped to author comic books but has had no luck. Now her lawyer father has issued an ultimatum – she needs to stop chasing a mirage and join his firm as a legal secretary. Her last foray in her wish-land is ShudderCon. Esta Rey has a job she likes in a publishing firm. Her life is neatly organised but grey. She allows herself to be herself for a few days each year – during ShudderCon. And the ‘herself’ that Esta is hiding from everyone she knows is the fact she is gay. Her first experience with another woman was a decade earlier at ShudderCon and ever since then she’s been looking for that girl – Cali – even as she determinedly beds as many women as she can during the con.

The MCs are a well-matched couple and the goings-on absurd enough to be totally amusing. This is an unpretentious light entertainer, which does its job well.
