This is a really good found family story full of wonderful queer characters.

Charlie Dee is sent on a work trip but gets trapped at their rental with the homeowners. Buffy and Hayden and their daughter are not what Charlie expects, but the dynamic might be exactly what they need.

I love the cast of characters and the various representation. Charlie is nonbinary, Buffy is bi, and Hayden is trans. I relate so much to Charlie's social feelings. The work indecision felt forced, like Charlie already knew what they wanted but was indecisive for the sake of it. Most of the book was enjoyable though.

Thanks so much to NetGalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read and review. ( )

This was a little too wish fulfillment to hold my interest, especially for the first half—it was obvious what Charlie would see in the complex, intriguing Hawthornes, but the character of Charlie just wasn't very fleshed out in turn, and I wasn't sure what the Hawthornes were meant to see in them. It kind of seemed like they were built to be a general purpose reader projection/stand-in. The fact that Charlie's character, history, and body were never described in a way that would reveal anything about their assigned birth gender was really cool, but that seemed to come with a general lack of exploration of the character—they seemed to exist purely within a 2 year period in which they were going through a social and professional slump—just made them not very interesting. But the Hawthornes were plenty interesting, and it's easy to root for everybody's happiness. ( )
