Why this book?
A gorgeous fun-filled small-town sapphic romance (lesbian and bisexual rep). Delilah is a struggling photographer in New York when she’s persuaded home to Bright Falls to photograph her estranged stepsister’s wedding. As well as fighting from a place of hurt with her stepsister Astrid, Delilah falls for Claire, Astrid’s BFF.
The writing is sassy and smart and oh-so-much fun, but this is no pure rom-com. There’s depth to the characters, even the minor ones like Claire’s daughter Ruby, and her friend Iris. Delilah, too, isn’t the shallow don’t-care person of the title. She’s holding a world of hurt inside her brittle exterior. Layers are peeled back gradually, and the characters reveal themselves slowly, all inside some writing so shiny it sparkles. It’s pure, big-hearted romance that gives you all the feels as you romp to the happy ending.
Delilah Green Doesn’t Care is (so far) my favourite read of 2022, and I’m looking forward to the next book in the series.

What is this book about?
A clever and steamy queer romantic comedy about taking chances and accepting love—with all its complications—from the author of Astrid Parker Doesn't Fail.
Delilah Green swore she would never go back to Bright Falls—nothing is there for her but memories of a lonely childhood where she was little more than a burden to her cold and distant stepfamily. Her life is in New York, with her photography career finally gaining steam and her bed never empty. Sure, it’s a different woman every night, but that’s just fine with her.
When Delilah’s estranged stepsister, Astrid, pressures her into photographing her wedding…
