Editorial Reviews From Publishers Weekly Sawyer brings back lipstick lesbian Macy Delongchamp in this uneven sequel to her acclaimed debut They Say She Tastes Like Honey. Macy-comfortably retired, on the wagon, in psychotherapy and going through menopause-along with "charming wife" Faith and young son Banky, head to Santa Monica to escape Manhattan's bad air and lurking dangers. The move is an instant hit with Faith and Banky, but not Macy, who goes about alienating her New Age neighbors, best friend Trish (whose daughter announces she's gay, much to her straight mother's shock and horror) and long-suffering Faith. The strain shatters Macy's once happy home. What follows is this saucy, ribald lesbian's foolhardy and occasionally funny attempts to win her wife and child back. But the narrative is a mess, from inexplicable appearances by Macy's adored and departed step-mom Vi, to a ridiculous and unbelievable kidnapping of Banky by Macy's brother Elliott. With too much fanfare, Sawyer tells the tired story of love found, lost and found again. The same-sex scenario could add a little spice in the hands of a more careful storyteller, but sadly, it doesn't bring much to this drab yarn.
