In the small mountain town of Amorea, it’s stretching toward autumn of 1954. The memories of a world at war are fading in the face of a prosperous future. Doors are left unlocked at night, and neighbors are always there to give each other a helping hand.

The people here know certain things as fact:

Amorea is the best little town there is.

The only good Commie is a dead Commie.

The Women’s Club of Amorea runs the town with an immaculately gloved fist.

And bookstore owner Mike Frazier loves that boy down at the diner, Sean Mellgard. Why they haven’t gotten their acts together is anybody’s guess. It may be the world’s longest courtship, but no one can deny the way they look at each other.

Slow and steady wins the race, or so they say.

But something’s wrong with Mike. He hears voices in his house late at night. There are shadows crawling along the walls, and great clouds of birds overhead that only he can see.

Something’s happening in Amorea. And Mike will do whatever he can to keep the man he loves.

Maria’s Review

➦It’s really hard to review this without giving any spoilers… so I will just tell you my feels.

➦A romantic read about two guys living in a small town. Very very romantic. Also very strange. Somewhat confusing.And intriguing. At times even depressing. But overall – fascinating.

➦Mike is a book shop owner. He has been forever in love with his best friend Sean, who works as a waiter at the local diner. Mike finally decides it’s time for them to be MORE.

➦But while Mike’s love life does take a turn for the best his mental health seems to be deteriorating. Strange stuff is happening to him: he starts asking himself weird questions, starts seeing and hearing stuff that’s not there. Or is it?

➦I have to say that as I was reading this book I sort of knew where it was going. But either way it was kind of hypnotizing/suspenseful and I had no problem getting to the end of it.

➦This book is definitely not your typical M/M romance, it has paranormal elements to it and while it’s very romantic it is also low on steam. (if that’s what you’re after) It was also lacking the humor that I’m so used to finding in Klune’s books. That’s not a bad thing, it’s just a different kind of read and I very much enjoyed it.
