Waiting for Colton (Afterlife Book 1) by Drew Hunt

Nice, good feelings novella, I have to confess I managed right till the last page to not shed any tear, but one escaped in the end.

This is the story of Dennis, a kind-hearted, but a little goofy gay man, who was a Children Books’s author when he was alive. Dennis died too young, after only 10 years of shared joy with his lover Colton. When he discovers that alterlife is a paradise welcoming to everyone, Dennis doesn’t know if hoping Colton will join him soon, or wishing for him a long life. In the meantime, Dennis is assigned to Brett, a young college guy. Dennis doesn’t understand why a total stranger is welcoming him, but little by little he will understand that Brett is the son of the heart he has never had.

There is a lovely romance in this story, but it’s not really the central theme of it; it’s more like a fantasy tale, a tale that aims to give hope to everyone, hope that we are all loved.
