Georgia Beers is probably one of the most successful writers of contemporary lesbian fiction. The writing in Starting From Scratch is good, and it's a solid novel, but for some reason, I thought it was missing a certain 'spark' to keep me captivated. For me, the novel had too little conflict and suspense. Maybe that's just me.
But what I really liked about this book is that it portrayed complex and realistic relationships between the main characters and minor characters. Avery's grandmother, for example, is not the (stereo-)typical grandmother. She's not the 'huggy' type, and she's not all-accepting about her granddaughter's sexual orientation, but she loves Avery.
