    I m giving this book four stars because it had the balls to be different It is character driven, which I like, and I also like the small town mentality that echoes through the story, which is well written Not a lot happens during the course of the story, but I did end up understanding the three main characters, Tellumo, who I liked, Peggy, who I felt sorry for, and Oliver who I understood completely since I m a crotchety old man and a lousy cook just like he is I also understood Oliver s amaz I m giving this book four stars because it had the balls to be different It is character driven, which I ...

    Awww, the ending made me cry This is a difficult book to rate explain It is CLEARLY a work of love, and hugely labor intensive The easiest way I can think of to explain this is that you shouldn t go into it looking for a quick read about Oliver and Tellumo The cover itself is misleading in a way This is really an ensemble piece Oliver Mo , Peggy love interest , Oliver, best friend , Mo, best friend , Peggy, church friends , Peggy, hairdresser Get the idea It s not a quick, straight Awww, the ending made me cry This is a difficult book to rate explain It is CLEARLY a work of love, and hugely labor intensive The easiest way I can think of to explain this is that you shouldn t go into it looking for a quick read about Oliver and Tellumo The cover itself is misleading in a way This is really an ensemble piece Oliver Mo , Peggy love interest , Oliver, best friend , Mo, best friend , Peggy, church friends , Peggy, hairdresser Get the idea It s not a quick, straightforward read Oliver and Mo don t even actually meet or speak to each other until about 27% into the book This can be frustrating for those who picked this up strictly looking to read an M M romance eg Mo and Oliver meet and share a moment but then both their be...

    From the blurb, you get the idea Tellumo is interested in Oliver, Peggy is interested in Oliver, Oliver is kind of a misanthrope and doesn t want to get involved with either he s too old for Tellumo and too gay for Peggy What the blurb doesn t tell you is that Tellumo ends up really good friends with Peggy and we get a really in depth view of her life so she is no evil female out to ruin the romance between our MCs In fact, I d say the book is equally divided into thirds Peggy, Oliver From the blurb, you get the idea Tellumo is interested in Oliver, Peggy is interested in Ol...

    3.5 This is not what I would call a romance It is actually a slice of life for three characters with very little romance included, though by the end we have high hopes that our 3 mc s will find romantic happiness There were LOL moments and some truly heartbreaking moment...
