Backcover:
Sometimes "The One" comes along more than once in a lifetime.
When Lauren Keegan met Cassie Burkett on a Yangtze River cruise, they immediately clicked. Cruise over, they kept in touch, and rapidly became close friends. The following year they're reunited for a visit which ends with a spontaneous kiss that surprises them both. That one kiss destroys their friendship, sending them back to their lives--and their partners--heartsick and remorseful.
Ten years later everything--and nothing--has changed. While the path is now clear for them to reignite the old flame, the time still seems all wrong. Cassie is unable to break through the emotional walls separating her from both her estranged son and her rediscovered love, while Lauren is overcome with revelations that shatter her belief in destiny and romance.
Challenged by the past and besieged in the present, the only thing going for them is the one thing they've denied all these years: love.
----------------------------------------
My review: There are stories that are just right for a few hours of entertainment. I enjoy those. I really do.
And then there are stories like 'Something to believe'. They touch me somewhere deep inside and won't allow me to forget about their characters for a long time.
Robbi Mccoy managed to pull me into the story from page one on.
Faith, Lauren and Cassie are charming, interesting, and witty. Neither of them is the bad girl in this story. They are believable and (in the very best way) ordinary characters. People you'd like to get to know and spend some time with.
On top of everything else, Robbi Mccoy has done her research about China's history and the whole anthropology background. For me this was a big bonus point.
'Something to believe' is a complex story and not the average romance.
It's a beautiful story that I simply loved.

Lauren und Faith sind seit vielen Jahren ein glückliches Paar. Auf einer Kreuzfahrt am Yangtze River treffen sie auf ein anderes lesbisches Pärchen, nämlich Cassie und Jennifer. Während Jennifer, die sich hauptsächlich für Sport interessiert, in diesem Quartett immer etwas außen steht, bildet sich zwischen Lauren und Cassie eine tiefe Freundschaft, die auch nach Rückkehr in die Heimat ihre Fortsetzung findet. Als sich beide immer mehr ineinander verlieben, zieht Lauren einen Schlussstrich. Jahre später, nach Faith Tod, begegnen sie sich durch Zufall wieder...doch Lauren fühlt sich ihrer verstorbenen Partnerin immer noch verpflichtet. Werden die beiden doch noch zusammen finden?

Dies ist eines der besseren Lesbian fiction"-Bücher, denn, man höre und staune, es hat tatsächlich Handlung. Statt aneinander gereihten Sexszenen und schwülstigen Liebesbeteuerungen finden sich hier Erklärungen über China, Totenkulte verschiedener Kulturen (da sich Faith beruflich damit befasst), Landschaftsbeschreibungen, plausible Dialoge und verständliche Verhaltensweisen, und, ganz wichtig: die Geschichte spielt nicht auf einem fernen Planten voller lesbischer Frauen; es kommen durchaus auch heterosexuelle Personen vor.

Die Charaktere sind gut beschrieben, ihre Gedanken verständlich und ihre Handlungen großteils nachvollziehbar. Manches wirkte auf mich ein bißchen schwülstig, wie beispielweise die dramatischen Abschiedsbriefe, die Faith an Freunde, Familie und die besonderen Personen in ihrem Leben schickte, oder auch Laurens unbeirrter Glaube an die reine, unantastbare Liebe (und das, obwohl sie diese Erfahrung mit Cassie machte...), oder das Verstreuen der Asche zum Schluss.

"Something to Believe" is not the usual lesbian fiction fare.

It's a solid read about two women who are already in relationships with other people when they fall in love with each other.

We meet all four women in chapter one and dip into each of their point of views, which made it a bit hard to keep them all straight in the beginning, but it was still a good read.

If you are interested in traveling, history, and culture, this might be the book for you.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This is a very good book 24. Dezember 2010
Von Curtie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a very good book. You can't always say that about lesbian fiction - often the writing is mediocre and the story development is superficial - but not this time, this book has some "meat on the bone".

The women in the book aren't perfect. They are not model gorgeous, super rich, famous, or executives running pah-zillion dollar corporations. These were ordinary women dealing with life with as much integrity and honesty as they can muster. As in real life, the characters face tough issues: disappointment, sadness, loss, grief, insecurity, and rejection by their family. The book honestly dealt with lust-vs.-commitment and how do you know when a flirtation "crosses the line" when you're already in a committed relationship.

I haven't read Ms. McCoy's prior works so this book was a nice surprise from a new author (for me). After enjoying this work, I will order prior publications in hopes they're as good as this book. I hope other lesbian authors take a lesson from this book - writing real is real writing.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Amazing! 16. November 2012
Von The Wake - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I love history...well the history of characters. I'm never content with just the story that I read. Rather, I want to know more about the characters beyond what the author shows us. Stephen Kings' Christine is one of my favorite books because the Author establishes, through flashbacks, Dennis' love for Arnie and why he would risk his life to save him.

How does Christine, a horror story about a furious '58 Plymouth Fury relate to `Something to Believe' by Robbi McCoy? It was the backstory early on, when the four main characters, Lauren, her partner Faith, newly met couple and fellow travelers Cassie and her partner Jennifer, have a discussion, each relating how they came out and how they met their partners. For me, that backstory establishes my connection to the characters, making me care for them, especially later in the book.

As stated in another review, no character is uber-rich or super-beautiful or any number of clichés. As a matter of fact the author seemed to stray away from concrete description of any of the characters. Often authors will intimately describe a character as being near perfect except for one fatal flaw: large lips, a larger nose, eyes to close or two far apart, hair that isn't manageable, etc. However, McCoy, in saying little about each woman, Faith, Lauren, Cassie, and Jennifer, lets me create an image of each one...something that again, lets me connect to the characters more, lets me create, in my mind, normal women.

If you read the synopsis on the main page, then you know this book is about heartbreak, tragedy, choices, consequences and love. And because of the author's ability to bring the reader in, the unfolding story, for me, was an emotional roller coaster. I actually bought this for my kindle around 9am this morning and didn't put it down until 4pm...it's that good. There were no Snidely-evil characters, no pseudo-witty banter, no horrible, lesbian hating men doing horrible things...just a simple story about a woman discovering if her heart was big enough to care for someone else. If Robbi McCoy's other books are this good, consider me a fan.

This is a book about a couple, Lauren and Faith, who are opposites in many ways but have a strong partnership. It begins on the Yangtze River, where they go on a cruise. Their neighbors on the cruise are Cassie and Jennifer, who are not as well suited to one another. Lauren and Cassie, however, find that they have much in common with each other and strike up a friendship. After the cruise, the story resumes in Oregon, where Lauren and Faith go about their lives. Faith has a graduate student that she is working with, Lauren and Cassie stay in touch, and then Cassie and Jennifer come to visit. Opportunities for cheating abound, but as you can see from the book description, all that happens is a kiss that is immediately recognized as a mistake. It was nice to read a book that handles the situation this way; most other stories I've read involve one partner cheating and driving the other partner into the arms of someone else or making her wary of any relationships. In this book, both members of the couple have enough respect for each other and value their relationship enough to exercise some self-awareness and self-control. The book then skips ahead 10 yrs. A major event has taken place, and without going into details, the rest of the book is about unresolved issues being resolved. A very refreshing story.

The beginning of this book is almost a travelogue of the Chinese Three Rivers Gorge before the dam went in, it is so well written. You are almost there with them. This is also a dual love story which will grab your heart and hang on for dear life to the end. An outstanding read. Great job Robbi McCoy!

4.0 von 5 Sternen It was Different, but good 27. November 2011
Von RosesAreRed - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Honestly, I found the book difficult to get into and stay with. Perhaps I am too used to the standard lesbian romantic fare. But half way through I began to get a sense of the arch of the storyline and stayed with it until the end. I am glad I did. It provoked a lot of emotions and evoked a lot of introspection about fidelity, commitment, and the impermanence of it all. It really was a deep book even if not the most exciting read.
