Meghan Blaney comes from a long line of self-sufficient, gritty Maine lobstermen. She knows a thing or two about hard work, loyalty, and sacrifice. When she put off going to culinary school so she could take care of her aging father, she never expected to be schlepping pancakes at a local diner a decade later. Nor did she plan to be living in an old house that was too small for her partner, Lauren, and her cantankerous father.
Meghan's life becomes even more complicated when she agrees to let her ex-con brother, Scott, stay with them. He unwittingly brings the sordid underbelly of the fishing industry and one troublesome gun into their lives. Meghan quickly learns the hard way, despite everyone's best intentions, that having a gun comes with its own unintended blowback.

Bev Prescott's Blowback is game-changer, and a book that I highly recommend to discriminating fans of lesbian fiction. It's chock full of hard working characters, struggling to make the best choices they can, even when those choices are limited at best. The story is edgy, and sometimes hard to listen to—not because it is badly written, quite the opposite. It is hard to sit through because it doesn't sugarcoat the truth that in present-day American society, guns take as many lives as they save. Trust me, nothing can prepare you for the heart-stopping conclusion of this audiobook. Bravo Ms. Prescott and Ms. Bennett!
Different, but a must listen
