Dusty Road Home is a work of fiction in the LGBTQ romance subgenre. It is suitable for the general reading audience and was penned by author Isabella. The book follows Melanie Crenshaw, a successful author who has fled the limelight following a particularly public breakup and sought refuge in her quiet hometown to find the peace she needs to finish her next book. But that quiet is threatened as journalist Pilar Stein sets Melanie in her sights as the subject for her next profile, though she’ll need to dig deep to find the angle she needs. As the two women battle over the past that Melanie wishes to keep buried, a growing attraction adds a new complication.
I adore this brand of romance novel that pushes two dynamic protagonists with an undeniable spark into an adversarial relationship that forces them to grow and develop as people to have any hope of a happy ending. Author Isabella takes a premise that seems deceptively simple and turns it into an emotional and intellectual game of cat and mouse as Pilar dives deeper and deeper into Melanie’s life despite strong resistance. Their chemistry quickly becomes palpable as their desire is set beautifully at odds with their professional ambitions, creating an opportunity for organic growth in the pair as they look inwards to decide what they want most. Overall, Dusty Road Home portrays the development of a relationship as an elaborate dance that readers won’t be able to take their eyes off, set against a stunning backdrop that springs to life on each page.
