Dawn in the Orchard by Cooper West
My rating: I liked this.
This is what the book is about.
Gary Winston is a professional musician with a debilitating problem: stage fright. Between his failing career and his failing relationship, Chicago has little left to offer him, so when he inherits his great-aunt's pecan farm in North Carolina, it's the perfect excuse to escape.
Nervous about being back in the deep South again, surrounded by small-town homophobia, Gary's certainly not ready to fall in love. Then he meets local farmer, businessman, and fiddle player Chuck Everett, whose family has been contracted to harvest the crop of pecans. Chuck’s the perfect man for Gary... except for being deep in the Southern closet.
Life heats up quickly when they start making music together, and though both men have more than their fair share of baggage, neither can walk away from the relationship. If Gary rediscovers his muse and realizes being true to himself means moving past his comfort zone, will going forward mean leaving Chuck behind?
This is what I thought about it.
I have to say this was a good story but the ending was very abrupt and disappointing in its lack out tie up.
It feels as if this book is setting up for a second one.
This story was sweet and it was interesting watching the relationship bloom between them but I think it might have been a better story from Chucks perspective, defiantly more interesting with his family views and interplay. That is a story I would pay to read and I think others would too.
