Kristen DiMercurio gives a spirited performance of Ashley Herring Blake’s funny, sexy, and heartwarming queer rom-com, Delilah Green Doesn’t Care. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Emily Connelly discuss this story of coming back to a dreaded hometown, and finding love—while also causing a fair amount of chaos. Photographer Delilah Green fled her hometown as soon as she could, desperate to escape both her stepsister Astrid and painful memories of her late father. When she begrudgingly returns to photograph Astrid’s wedding, she isn’t expecting to fall for Astrid’s best friend, Claire—a sweet single mom who runs a bookstore. DiMecurio smoothly switches between their perspectives, capturing their distinct personalities and leaning into the story’s humor and heart.
