What's the point of finding yourself if you lose your heart in the process?
Ren Molson should be chasing a bright new future. Instead, she's spent the last two years floundering in a small-town community college. She hates being the only lesbian she knows, and a virgin. She's tired of watching her friends move forward while her momentum stalls. Most of all, she's sick of feeling lost and confused about who she is or what she's supposed to do with her life. Desperate for a change, Ren hopes to use her Spanish class tour through Spain to remake herself.
True to her plan, as Ren travels through Spain, she learns more about herself than the country she's visiting. What she doesn't expect is to fall in love with her beautiful young tour guide, Lina Montero. She'll have to decide if her life can handle any more uncertainty and just how far she's willing to go in order to become the person she thought she wanted to be.
Rachel and her partner, Susan, are raising their young son in western New York, where during the winter they make the most of the lake effect snow on local ski slopes, a hobby that inspired her second novel, Trails Merge. In the summer, they love to travel and watch their beloved St. Louis Cardinals. Regardless of the season, Rachel always makes time for a good romance, whether she's reading it, writing it, or living it.
