"Ricochet In Time" Cover and link to Lori's Website. "Ricochet In Time" Review 

"A Compelling Read From Cover To Cover"  by Midwest Book Review

Lor i Lake is one of the best novelists working in the field of lesbian fiction today. Her latest novel is Ricochet In Ti me in which we are introduced to Danielle "Dani" Corbett, a woman who has learned from personal experience about being the target of hatred just because your inborn sexual orientation is different from that of most others. A lethal attack motivated by sexual bigotry and prejudice leaves her girlfriend, Meg O'Donnell, dead, and Dani physically injured and emotionally scarred. With the help of hospital physical therapist Grace Beaumont and the help of Grace's aunts, Estelline and Ruth, Dani is able to work through her near devastating grief and almost overwhelming rage, as well as bringing Meg's killer to a well deserved justice. Ricochet In Ti me is a compelling read from cover to cover as it showcases an impressive struggle to find a personal place in the world and an enduring justice for a friend.

  "Suspense With T he Feel Of Silk" by Ronald L. Donaghe, author of The Blind Season

It is no wonder that Lori Lake's books are best sellers. Her characters are deep-bodied, multidimensional, and convincing. Her plots unfold like pedals on a flower, coming to full bloom at just the right moment. Ricochet in Time is no exception. When Dani and her lover Meg are victims of a hate crime at the beginning of the story, it is anybody's guess how the plot will develop. Will the killer get away with it? Will Dani be able to pull herself together enough to pursue justice for her slain partner? Or will she run away as she has from trouble in the past? The interesting point, here, is that this particular plot element becomes the background for a much more interesting story. Meet Ruth and Estelline, Grace, Bryce, Cleve, and a whole host of distinct characters, all of whom interact in various important ways with Dani as she fights her way back to full health from her physical injuries and emotional pain. You'll have to read the book to see if the perpetrator of the hate crime is brought to justice. The outcome is far more surprising than you can guess. Ronald L. Donaghe is the author of The Blind Season and a professional book reviewer for Foreword Magazine.
