When Broadway actor Jonah receives word that his uncle has passed away and named him the heir to a property in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, Jonah’s plan is to settle the estate as quickly as possible and return to his life in New York City. Much to Jonah’s surprise, the inheritance includes the Ashford Cemetery—and its hunky groundskeeper, recent Bosnian immigrant Luka Pavelka.
Jonah soon discovers Luka is more than easy on the eyes. He sees into Jonah’s heart like no man ever before, and his job at the cemetery is all he has. If Jonah sells, Luka is left with nothing. Luka is there for Jonah when Jonah needs someone most, and there’s no denying the chemistry and connection between them. But Jonah has a successful career back in New York. Now he must decide if it’s still the life he wants…
Jonah is a Broadway actor living in New York with his best friend Chet. When he receives a letter from a lawyer announcing the death of his uncle Samuel, Jonah leaves NY and goes to Carlisle to settle the estate as his only heir. Jonah is more than shocked to learn among his uncle proprieties there’s a cemetery. At First, Jonah wants to sell it, but when he meets Luka, a Bosnian immigrant, the groundskeeper of the cemetery, Jonah hesitated. Despite their clear differences, Luka and Jonah have more in common than what they think. The real struggle is for them to find their place in each other lives.
I really liked this book.
Jonah was at a crossroad in his life. He didn’t realize it until he came at Carlisle. That’s only when he meets Luka and can’t fight the attraction between them, that he understood that maybe his life in NY wasn’t really what he needed.
Luka struggled to be accepted in his new life. He left everything, his country, and his family after they find out he was gay. He didn’t have a choice. He had to leave. But it isn’t easy to adapt to a new country when you barely speak the language. People underestimate and belittle him all the time, except for Jonah.
I really loved Luka and Jonah. They were good, beautiful and hooooooooot. They bound together over the cemetery and the historic part. They have to clean the grounds and hope to find old graves that are part of the US history during the cessation war.
The story is well built, and the plot well developed. The Characters too, their psyches weren’t superficial, and the author built it step by step just like their relationship. The story is from Jonah’s pov, and we follow him with his doubts, his fears, but also hopes, dreams and love of course.
It was a beautiful book, Jonah and Luka discover more than old historical graves, but a real true love.
4 OptimuMM’s for these two treasures hunters.
