5.0 out of 5 stars ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL, 10 Mar 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Love in the Balance (Paperback)
Love in the balance is so much more than a romance. Marianne Martin has created characters I wish I could visit on a regular basis. At times they made me laugh out loud, and other times they made me cry. I worried so much about them that I couldn't put the book down.
The story is real and exceptionally well-drawn. It is a reminder of how wonderful love is, and the courage that it takes to live it. Don't miss this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good summer read, 16 Aug 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Love in the Balance (Paperback)
It took me a while to realize that this is a part of the larger community of "legacy of love". It fits in nicely. Though there is only Sharon left now for the next romance but who knows. I read the book on a long flght and I couldn't stop. Back home a checked how well it fitted with her first book set a few years later. It does! So there is hope for more. If you liked "legacy of love" go for this one too. It is a good read much better than the average naiad romance.

Besides being at times funny and occasionally sad, this book had to be read almost at one sitting. The characters are adorable.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Love Story but also...., 12 July 2012

I know some people see 5 star reviews and dismiss them as over the top. But I don't know how I could possibly give this book any less given that I have read it about 6 times (and about 4 of those in a row).

I am definitely not a fan of romance novels - the very idea of them has me wrinkling my nose in disgust. This is not a romance novel but a beautiful love story does unfold within its pages. The beauty is in the way it unfolds. There is a sense of reality and beauty in the story and I love the way that it does not culminate in trashy porn, like a lot of other lesbian novels seem to.

The author has managed to intertwine a tragic plot with a beautiful love story in such a way that has the reader questioning their own beliefs and looking deep into their soul to ask themselves "What would I do in this situation?"

I am so glad I took the time to first read this novel. It led me to Marianne K Martin's other works and a sense of finally finding lesbian fiction that doesn't have me running for the hills.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rollercoaster of emotions, 18 April 2012
This review is from: Love in the Balance (Kindle Edition)
A really nice book that will have you laughing and crying. A really satisfying read. Connie is a great character but her loveliness only really shone through for me in the latter parts of the book, but still a great read . Well done x

Enjoyable read, if a bit predictable. Once I started reading, I had to finish it and found it easy to read quickly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good story that changes completely half way through, 25 May 2014

This review is from: Love in the Balance (Kindle Edition)
This is a good book and I would have given it 5 stars if it didn't change completely half way through, I don't want to spoil the story so I won't go into too much detail but it is basically a romantic book and then it turns a bit serious, personally I wanted a trashy romance novel so this is not what I was expecting, but it is still good, I would probably choose to delete out the sad bits if I was going to read it again.

Finally some decent lesbian fiction. We all know it's a bit hit or miss trying to find a good read when you're discovering new authors but I really enjoyed this book. Buy it - you won't be disappointed!
