New York native Henry Richardson needs a change. His boyfriend just dumped him, and his business has fallen victim to the economy. But is jumping on a plane after a surprise phone call taking things too far?
The promise of a new opportunity drags Henry away from the city to a tiny village in the English countryside and an enormous manor house his great-grandmother wants to bequeath him.
That’s how Henry meets Ryan Burgess, the shy but hardworking owner of an organic farm. The spark between them sizzles slowly while work on the house continues, but Ryan is deeply in the closet and unwilling to take the last step.
Imagine a summers day with a glass of wine, a comfy chair and all the time in the world… this is Cricket. It's a gorgeously sweet love story with no much angst set in a sleepy Somerset village. It was exactly what I needed to calm me down after a frenetic Christmas build up.
If you like slow build ups, love, and a glimpse into a quiet country life then this is the book for you…
