October 12, 2017 ( datsyn.com) – BOOK BLURB: The last thing Renay Skovgaard expected was to find herself a victim of a catfisher. No stranger to online dating, Renay didn’t see it coming until it was too late, and she’d already lost her heart. Months after the catfisher had faded away, and time had healed the wound, Renay was finally able to grasp the truth behind the encounter. She was in love with the woman in the image she carried around in her back pocket, not the person behind the screen. Her hazel eyes were the same pair she’d seen since childhood, and she was ready to find the woman she knew only as, Susan Walters.
The last thing Olga Weber expected her first night at Oktoberfest was to come-to-face with the woman she couldn’t live without. Her kindness, humor, and easy going way of making her feel safe drew her to the woman like a moth to a flame. Olga knew the game she played was dangerous, because a woman like Renay could destroy the make-believe life she’s worked for years to build. After one chance meeting she could feel the walls of her closet crumbling around her, and she knew her life was about to change…forever.
Olga and Renay find themselves falling in love; one woman comfortable with her sexuality, the other uncomfortable in her own skin. A bottle of wine and a sweet, languid kiss told Olga the time had come to decide if Renay was worth fighting for, and if true love could conquer all.

“Wow! I told Katie Mettner I had a little story for her about something that happened to me, and am so blown away how she very creatively wove it all together in such a moving way. What a great job with twists life throws at a person. Catfishing, Coming Out and the Importance of Authenticity and Standing Up for What You Believe in! There’s really a lot covered here, and of course Love finding its way to heal things and light the way! Katie Mettner once again hits it out of the ballpark in that special way that she can weave a totally captivating easy to read story with so much conviction and life lessons we all need to learn or remember. Bravo for taking on these important subjects. I think this book could help so many people on so many different levels. It had me bawling at the end, yet reeling with hope for humanity!” –LR Shaw
