Moonglow by Charlie Romo

Not only does this book take you inside the world of high fashion but it also gives a hard looks at same sex relationships.  There’s definitely a message here even though I felt the author may have played a little to the cliché side of the fashion world and promoted the lesbian relationships inspired by this profession.  Still, the relationships were real and the author shared the pain and immense highs that go with any pairing.  

Moonglow is well written and the story moves along even though there was a lot of exploring of feelings and stage setting.  I don’t think it was overdone however there might have been a character or two that could have been left out entirely.  Sometimes its so easy to get pulled into liking a character that its hard to see when they actually have no value to the story.

Generally, I liked this story.  There were no surprises but it was a nice, down home look at a different type of love and I think a good read.  I recommend it.
