I’ve only read two other McMan books and I’m going to be completely honestI liked them both and thought both were really well written but I also found myself a little bored with them by the end McMan is a fade to black author and well I'm a pervert that likes a little side of steam with my romance I decided to give this one a go mostly because of the Vermont setting I’ve read very few really well written books that take place in my native state so I tend to hesitantly jump on ‘em when they show upIn ‘Beowulf for Cretins’ the two main characters Grace and Addie have a one night stand when they meet on a trip in San Francisco and despite the obvious connection both go home without exchanging any contact information; Addie to North Carolina and Grace to Vermont After the death of her husband 18 months prior to her fling with Grace Addie had made the decision to make some major changes in her life two of which are her job and her location I guess a third obvious one is her sexuality though this book never actually brings that up It does hint that Abbie’s gay and not bi soyeah It just so happens that her new position President of St Albans College is at the same school were Grace is an English Professor While their reunion was coincidental neither are shy about their feelings when they meet again At 4647 they actually act like the adults they are and communicate Abbie and Grace agree that they want to make a go at a relationship though they have no idea what that looks like feasibly and most of this book is about navigating those waters while also knowing that it could have potential negative conseuences on their careersI’m usually hesitant about reading books that take place in areas I livehave lived because I’ve read a lot of botch jobs not just on Vermont but on other cities I’ve lived in in the south I’m happy to say that Ann McMan did her homework and it’s obvious This is kind of a stupid thing to stand out to me but she uses an actual grocery chain that exists predominantly in New England I once read a book where the author continuously had the character going to a store that I had never heard of and google kindly informed me that it's because the store is one that is popular out west and is not in fact a chain that even exists in the south I still grrrrr just thinking about it McMan also mentions other locations Smuggler’s Notch Distillery Maple City Diner Kamp Kill Kare and Burton Island that are real places and it allows the book to feel authentic While the Vermont setting isn’t really predominant enough in the book to discern it from any other lake town with a small liberal arts college it was still represented well enough I never once thought ‘that doesn’t sound like Vermont’ All in all I enjoyed this book than the other two I’ve read by McMan She’s a very intelligent writer and I like her style a lot Her humor is witty her characters are likable and she obviously takes care to do her research
