About Color of You
Bowen Merlin—yes, that’s his real name—accepts a position in the quaint town of Lancaster, New Hampshire, as the high school band director. He leaves New York City for the snowy countryside of New England just in time for the holidays. With class, homework, after-school activities, and a surprise Christmas concert to plan and rehearse, Bowen is plenty busy. And since he’s never had much luck with romance, factoring in time to find Mr. Right isn’t a priority….
Until he meets the proprietor of Snowy Ridge Apple Orchard, Felix Hansen. Suddenly, true love seems like a possibility for the first time in Bowen’s life. The two are a perfect match and fill the skipped beats of each other’s hearts. But as wonderful as Felix seems, he’s harboring scars that could end their budding relationship when someone in town goes to great lengths to sabotage their careers.
If Bowen is to survive the holidays, he’ll need to lean on old friends and new, convince Felix he’s worth any hardship, and prove they can come out of the catastrophe stronger if they do so together.
5 HEART READ
C.S. Poe has found a new fan here with her heartwarming holiday story, Color of You.
Felix is a quiet man with a past he doesn’t like to share with anyone. Surprisingly when the new school teacher in town, Bowen, endears himself on their first chance meeting, the connection they feel is undeniable.
Felix and Bowen develop an intriguing dynamic which has a fascinating twist on the traditional roles you would expect to see in such a relationship.
But when disaster strikes, they discover feelings run deep – and not only their own.
The attraction between these two men provides a gasp-worthy tension throughout the novel - which is deepened by the secondary characters who enrich the story’s environment with laughter, wit and emotion.
This clever narrative is a melting pot of humour, suspense, sex, romance and a vibrant array of sharp characterisation as well as having a beautifully described location and community setting.
A fulfilling read with intelligence, wit and charm, Color of You by C.S. Poe will warm your holiday and fill your heart.
