When Aiden Love is kicked out of his graduate program, his dreams of becoming a novelist are quickly dashed. He returns to his small hometown in Kentucky hoping to find a job at his brother Antony’s garage. Soon, though, Aiden finds it is more than just a job he wants from his brother; he also wants his girl, Rosalee. She is the widow of Antony’s best friend, and Antony feels it is his duty to take care of her, even though there is not necessarily a love connection. Complicating matters is the failing health of Aiden’s mother, and a tumultuous relationship with his father. What toll will be taken on the family when years of secrets are revealed?
Love Garage is a fabulous story of family, loyalty, and how much small town life, and all of the baggage that is history, can become engrained in your character. This is a complex story with many characters, which at times could become a little confusing. But, the storyline was engaging, and the personalities were developed in a way that not only makes them likeable, but they will also be easy to follow into subsequent books in the series.
