My review: Love and Lemonade, by Jamieson Wolf

Book cover of Love and Lemonade. A pink background. An older couple dances on their wedding day as the guests smile on.

This is the third book in Jamieson Wolf’s Lemonade series, and I love these characters so much. It’s like catching up with old friends. I’m a big fan of the episodic nature of each chapter, and this series reminds me a bit of Tales of the City, with respect to the chosen family theme. I really love the way this cast of characters continually strives to seek love and redemption and forgiveness. They aren’t perfect, just like we aren’t perfect, but they know the value of friendship love, romantic love, and family love. I was very satisfied with how the series ended. I feel a little sad to say goodbye, so I might reread it again one day!

I was also really glad to see the authentic intersectionality of a character who is queer and disabled. I think it’s really important to include disabled characters who are just trying to live their lives like anyone else. It’s nice to read that realness on the page.

If you want you cuddle up with a funny, touching, and delightful series full of great characters, I highly recommend this series. The order of the books is: Lust and Lemonade, Life and Lemonade, and Love and Lemonade.
