I enjoyed the story with the paranormal elements and the romance between Natalie and Van. I was surprised when the mystery unraveled to an epic and heart-wrenching conclusion. Heidt has written a spellbinding novel of love, loss, tragedy, and triumph! Aug 16, Kat rated it it was amazing. Refreshing bit scary for those who don't get along with ghosts but very good book.
Natalie makes for a relatable character and I liked the interactions she had with her mother. I also found it pretty creepy. I feel like Yvonne has a good feel for atmosphere and that shows through in the more tense scenes throughout the book. Good ghost story with plenty of likable characters, interesting plot and romance.

Van has built an emotional wall around herself; but does satisfy the loneliness she feels by taking various women home with her after a few drinks. Van approaches Natalie knowing that her house has been empty for so long that the garden will be badly in need of landscaping. As soon as Natalie and Van meet they are attracted to one another. Van makes her offer to landscape the garden and Natalie accepts. As Natalie grapples with her attraction to Van and is discovering that she has oppressed her lesbianism up until this point in her life; she has a dream that she is Beth and is having sex with Sarah.
The plot is excellent with good use of description throughout. The story is well paced allowing for peaks of paranormal action, character development and unravelling of the mystery. The mystery encourages the reader to read on; I found myself constantly trying to guess the mystery and what would happen next. I could have easily read this book in one sitting, and probably would have done had I not been so busy recently. It has all the components of a good story: love interest, mystery, fear, action, drama and a happy ending that ties up all the loose ends.
Yvonne Heidt has a very engaging writers voice, as well as being an obviously talented writer.
Mar 12, lov2laf rated it really liked it Shelves: ghosts , paranormal , lesbian-or-f-f , pages. I didn't feel this was as smooth as a 4 star book but it does have positive aspects to it. The main issues I had with "Sometime Yesterday" is that, at times it felt choppy so the jump to the next sequence or movement in the scene was somewhat jarring.
I actually found Beth and Sarah to have depth and I liked them a lot even though we didn't see them much. The reactions to the incidents in the house were also 3. The reactions to the incidents in the house were also strange at times. I think the author was conveying that Natalie was getting more angry than intimidated by the hauntings but she kept going back and forth. The more the hauntings escalated, sometimes she'd be terrified and sometimes she'd be unaffected. One example of something that struck me as odd is that it gets to a point where whenever Natalie sleeps in the house it's some horrific nightmare but yet she doesn't steel herself each time she lays down to bed.
I know I would!
It's late in the book when a suggestion of a nap is given to Van, I think saying it would do her good which I thought was super strange because sleep in that house always does the opposite. There was just some flip flopping back and forth, in general, that didn't feel completely organic. On the positive side, there were good things about the book, too. There was a fairly intricate plot and the author did a great job of creating one evil dude in Richard. At times, I was completely caught up in the book and the climax is pretty intense.
I realized it was a mistake to read this at night in the dark, so she got to me that way. Kudos to the author to writing scary well. There was a lot of atmosphere and set up in this book that was done well. I found all of the scenes with Beth and Sarah to be great.
I thought those characters were engaging, their story was interesting, and there was more sensuality and eroticism with them than with the main characters. In a way, the whole coming out to oneself and to others moved really quickly for Natalie but I didn't mind that and I appreciated that it wasn't a big deal. I think this was better than just okay and it's worth a read.

I admit it, I want to know where here art work is going next. Feb 27, W. Gregory Kett rated it it was amazing. I am not usually a fan of ghost stories. Very few things that haven't been done to death pun intended many times before. This on the other hand weaves the past lives, both romance and terror, into the modern tale in such an excellently fashion that I would love to see this done faithfully as a movie.

More Helen Shapiro Albums. There are two lesbian couples in Sometime Yesterday , which mirror each other: one in the past, and one in the present. In present day we meet Natalie, a painter who has just divorced her ex-husband and purchased an idyllic-looking house in a small town.
She soon meets Van, a butch landscaper with a tragic past and a chronic avoidance of commitment. The lovers of the past were doomed by circumstance, but Natalie and Van have a chance at a future together. I enjoyed the romance in the story the most, although the haunting, which escalates over time, gives it vital tension. Van and Natalie make a believable pair, and reading about them was a sweet experience.
