Blog Tour; The Rhubarb Patch



Title: The Rhubarb Patch

Series: A Men of Gilead Novel

Author: Deanna Wadsworth
Genre: M/M Contemporary

Release Date: July 24, 2017
    
 


 

City boy, sci-fi novelist, and recovering pushover Scott Howe doesn’t know what to expect when he inherits his grandmother’s house outside the quaint village of Gilead, Ohio—but it isn’t an enormous bald man in nothing but tighty-whities and orange rubber boots shouting at him to keep his weed wacker away from the rhubarb patch. 
Scott has never met anyone like Phineas Robertson: homesteader, recluse… Republican. A tender—if unlikely—friendship grows over the summer while Phin and his schnauzer, Sister Mary Katherine, teach Scott about life in the country and the grandmother he never knew. Opposites attract, but widower Phin worries his secret will send Scott running faster than his politics, and Phin isn’t convinced he deserves a second chance at romance.
Scott is convinced—rural life, and his one-of-a-kind, older neighbor, is the future he wants. Before he can settle in, his mother drops a bombshell that strains their already tenuous relationship, and a cousin who believes he is the rightful heir to the property puts Scott in danger. It’ll take a lot of compromises, and even dodging a few bullets before they’re out of the weeds, but nurturing something as special as true love always takes hard work.

 The Rhubarb Patch is a sweet book that teaches about love in odd places and friendships that last a lifetime. 

Scott is a city boy who inherits his estranged grandmother's property after she passes. He doesn't know what he's going to do with his three acres of land and his house full of odd knickknacks, but figures it's best if he goes and tries out country living for a while. 

Then he meets Phin. Phin with his big body and even bigger personality, he's a little older than Scott, a little wiser, and a little more closed off. 

The two of them have nothing in common. Except their loneliness.

As they develop a tentative friendship other emotions begin to stir up. 

I loved the friendship between the two characters. You could tell each one was thought out, each interaction meant something, and the love that bloomed was beautiful.   

This book is a sweet romance that had me smiling and laughing and enjoying. It made me want to appreciate life and love and friendship that much more. 

If you're looking for a sweet, beautiful book then this one is for you.
