    "Right To Remain Silent - Something this good should be a crime!" "You know how sometimes you meet someone, and it just feels like you've known them forever?" I asked sweetly. Joie hesitated before answering ... Well, I said, that ain't us" (p 74). The city. A neon framed world where anything can happen and often does. Where in the night sky shines a beacon of possibilities and in the shadows lurks excitement and danger. Who is that stranger and what could they be hiding beneath that coat? Could it be cupid is disguise or a wolf in tailored clothing? Blue Sleighty’s “Right To Remain Silent” takes the reader by the hand and into the world of bar room seduction, the hope for more than a one night stand, and the dangerous line we all walk when we’re searching for love beyond sunrise. Never one to give up, Blue returns to the playing field she is most familiar with – her favorite lesbian bar. Heading into the night with her usual flair, she “had already decided... More > . . . that night, that someone would be accompanying me home when I returned. And, I couldn't wait to meet the lucky girl- whoever she may be” (p 7). In vivid description, the reader takes a walk on the wild side and experiences the G Spot through Blue’s eyes. As she ponders all the possibilities, she is pleasantly surprised by a little taste of New Orleans personified in the confident and stylish lesbian named Joie. Joie approaches without hesitation and soon acquaints Blue with the irresistible charms of The Big Easy. Just as quickly as you can say 'Nawlins, Blue is swept away by Joie. Within forty-five minutes they are en route to Blue’s place. The tension mounts as the seduction continues, each moment filling with their desire. Sleighty’s descriptions are hypnotic. The heat radiates and carries the reader over from a steamy night into an even more scorching morning. By the time they are through, Blue has no doubt that she has fallen in love again and all seems like a new, happy future for her, until .... You’ve never known good love to go bad so rapidly, and to make it worse, Blue doesn’t know why. The mystery continues as Blue tries to overcome her most quick heartbreak, only to find Joie return to her life and, because of how sexually energized they are with each other, to continue to turn a blind eye. But when Joie displays behavior too strange to ignore, it’s Blue’s roommate, Dee, who has to break the news. Dee, a rookie cop, cares deeply about Blue, enough to shock her into reality when need be. She and Blue share a wonderful friendship where honesty is always the best policy, like it or not. When Dee delivers the truth about Joie, Blue is faced with decisions she would rather not make. Blue decides to lay low about Dee’s news, and her claim on the right to be silent gets her more than she could have ever bargained for. Sleighty gives us a story filled with humor, hopes and dreams. She explores our tendency to associate good sex with falling in love and combines her story with passionate responses and relatable actions and consequences. Sleighty has created more than a sexual adventurer. She's given us a hero in Blue, one that champions for anyone who has ever been in love. With a sharp wit and a sharp mind, Blue lives life to the fullest. She loves with all her body and heart. She takes a licking and keeps on kicking ass, taking life’s disappointments with a shrug of her shoulders, a dusting off of her heart, and a confident step towards whatever lies over the next hill. “The Right To Remain Silent” must be heard. Read it. Listen. Then understand why sometimes the best answer to heart break is a good friend and a hot cup of coffee. J. Aguilera, MLA Professional reviewer, writer and poet< Less
