Queerly Beloved

Amy, a semicloseted queer baker and bartender in mid-2010s Oklahoma, has spent a lifetime putting other people's needs before her own. Until, that is, she hits it off with Charley, a brilliant, attractive engineer who's just moved to Tulsa. Suddenly, Amy's found something--someone--she actually wants. Her tight-knit group of chosen family is thrilled she's finally moving on from her ex. Mostly, though, they want Amy to find a way to show up for love--and life--as her authentic self.
But when a one-off gig subbing in for a bridesmaid turns into a full-time business--thanks to Amy's baking talents, crafting skills, and years watching rom-coms and Say Yes to the Dress--her deep desire to please kicks into overdrive, at her own expense. It's not until Amy's precarious balancing act strains her relationships to the breaking point that she must decide what it looks like to be true to herself--and if she has the courage to try.
