Melody has moved with her teenage daughter Kristen from Seattle to Colorado, to begin her new life living fully as a woman, in a place where no one knows the man she used to be. Kristen has been a trouper through the whole awful divorce and her parent's transition from Melvin to Melody, and Melody has enrolled her horse crazy daughter in a horse riding class as a thank you.
That's how Melody meets Derrick Masters, Kristen's riding instructor, and the first interesting guy she's meet since her transition. Melody hasn't dated since she was a teenager--a teenage boy, at that--and along with all the awkwardness of getting back into the dating game after divorce, Melody has another, scary set of issues to tackle.
This is a short story, and a sweet romance. Melody, Derrick, and even teenage Kristen are all likable characters. If some things seem to happen (and to have happened, in the backstory) a bit more easily than seems altogether realistic well, this isn't a gritty, realistic story. It's a fun, feel-good story
A light, enjoyable read, recommended on that basis.
