I’ve never been big on reading romance novels, which is why I’m so surprised to come to the revelation that I’m hooked on Karin Kallmaker’s books… Substitute for Love is no exception. It doesn’t seem likely for Holly, who is in a long-term straight relationship, to get involved with Reyna, who writes press releases and articles for a conservative, anti-gay Christian group, but it happens. As the story unfolds, Holly finds out some secrets about her past, while we find out the reason why Reyna has the job she has. This may be one of Karin Kallmaker’s best and most engrossing books yet.
