The first book I've read by this author and loved it.
Next one will be to see how he writes a mystery.

Full disclosure: I had a chance to read this story before it was published and I worked with the author to design the cover. I also love Alp Mortal's writing style.

Having said all that, this is the kind of love story that is right up my alley. Two men from different backgrounds with seemingly very different personalities and interests meet when one hires the other to do some gardening.

This was a bit slow getting into and the dialogue was different. After a while I began to like Daniel's quirkiness. I enjoyed the garden metaphors while they were having sex. Not sure exactly what happened to Maggie. Would have liked a bit more explanation there and we never got to see the dinner with Liz and Marshy. But I did get a few laughs.
