I loved the first book so much that I had great expectations for the continuing story and am pleased to say that I wasn't disappointed. The story moves on by 6 years and Adam is back living and working in France. There's new people to meet and also people from the past come along to play a part in Adam's new life.

The story got me hooked from the start. I don't usually get involved in a book at this depth but the style of writing, the scene and the characters have me there with them, like a fly o
Blue Sky Adam picks up where Adam left off. Adam is now back in England and has just finished his degree in Music. He has maintained sporadic secret contact by letter with his first love Sylvain but has not seen him since they were separated by the law. Adam still has his group of friends from England from the first novel and now as a young gay man is taking full advantage of his youth to enjoy life with them. Now he must make decisions about his career and his life. To complicate things further ...more

I would have given it 5 stars, but I think the ending was weak. The book takes place in the present of the story; we the reader have no more knowledge of events than the characters in the book. The charm for me for this book and its prequel "Adam" is that Adam (and his friends) is allowed to make good and bad choices without comment or judgement from some outside narrator. Adam is far from perfect, and in part because of that, he feels very real to me. So I felt the book should simply have ended ...more
This book was a great sequel to Adam. Adam (the main character) frustrated me with his behavior but his story was such a compelling one. I found this book hard to put down. In the first book, he was sixteen, so his recklessness could be attributed to his youth. But in Blue Sky, he's twenty-two and, clearly, he hasn't learned much because his actions are just as reckless as they were when he was a teenager. He just keeps getting involved with people without considering the ramifications of his ac ...more

A really lovely sequel to the gay romance novel "Adam". This novel is set a few years after the events in Adam. Adam inherits a chateau and vineyard in France from an elderly benefactor, Georges Pincemain. He begins a new adventure in his life but brings back his old friends, Michael and Sean and reintroduces his old love, Sylvain back into his life.

I loved it. It made me smile and laugh and feel a little sad too. Wonderful.
This is a wonderful story that I didn't want to end; highly recommended.
