Talker’s Redemption begins some six months after Tate realizes Brian is gay. The two of them are undergoing some serious therapy sessions with paunchy Doc Sutherland, a colorful psychiatrist with a penchant for knitting cardigans. Brian is Tate’s Prince Charming, his knight in shining armor. What happens when events carry the knight the field? Is Tate going to step up to the plate?
Amy Lane handles the second book about this sweet couple with much skill. Lane tells much of the Talker’s Redemption in flashbacks and from Tate’s disjointed perspective. You hop from past points in Tate’s life forward to past points in Tate’s friendship with Brian. At some points, I found myself confused by what was happening, particularly the introduction of Jeremy. The story requires your full attention. I’m giving this 4 stars because it is obviously a transitional novel with several plot points left unresolved. Still, I loved the story.
