Love Comes Silently by Andrew Grey

Even if this was not a seasonal releases, coincidence wanted that I read this more or less under Christmas period and the feeling was pretty much that. Truth be told, and that is the only small fault I could find in this novel, the story of an ill little girl who wanted to celebrate Halloween and Christmas in advance since she wasn’t sure she was able to survive till the right time was the theme of a Christmas movie I used to see on television in those lazy Christmas time afternoons, when you have nothing to do if not idling in front of the television.

But the fatherly “love story” between a little girl and a kind but mute neighbor, is one of the two you will find here, the second that of the same kind, and young and handsome, neighbor with the single dad of the little girl, a renowned painter who just moved next door. Patrick was a famous singer, before losing his voice in an accident; he has now retired on the same small town where he grew up, a place where he can hide and be comfortable, people not bothering him other than to check if he is alive and averagely well. After adopting a daughter, Ken decided to move to the same small town to give his daughter a better place to grow up. The time of the move coincides with the discovery of his daughter’s illness and his break-up with his boyfriend. When Patrick starts to do small kind gestures, little by little he conquers both father than daughter.

As I said, this is the perfect story to read bundled up on the couch, maybe in front of a fire, and again, coincidence wanted I was more or less in that situation, being at home with a low fever. I enjoyed the story, I enjoyed the warm feelings it left me, and I enjoyed it had the right dose of sexiness without being the main theme.
