Review: Buried Passions by Andrew Grey
When Broadway actor Jonah receives word that his uncle has passed away and named him the heir to a property in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, Jonah’s plan is to settle the estate as quickly as possible and return to his life in New York City. Much to Jonah’s surprise, the inheritance includes the Ashford Cemetery—and its hunky groundskeeper, recent Bosnian immigrant Luka Pavelka.
Jonah soon discovers Luka is more than easy on the eyes. He sees into Jonah’s heart like no man ever before, and his job at the cemetery is all he has. If Jonah sells, Luka is left with nothing. Luka is there for Jonah when Jonah needs someone most, and there’s no denying the chemistry and connection between them. But Jonah has a successful career back in New York. Now he must decide if it’s still the life he wants….
I will admit that I picked up this book because the cover looks ridiculous and it takes place in Carlisle PA, close to where I grew up. I am not used to seeing books that take place where I grew up so that plus the cover and I knew I had to read it.
Now the story was fun. I enjoyed watching Jonah and Luka get together. It was a bit silly and ridiculous just like the cover in a really great way. In a way that made me want to read more from this author.
Jonah is an actor who is currently out of work. He is eagerly awaiting his next show, but for now, he has to go to Carlisle PA to take care of an inheritance he received from someone he didn't know very well. He plans on just being there long enough to sell everything and get back to NYC, only things don't go as planned. For one thing, part of the estate left to him includes a cemetery and the super hot caretaker. Jonah was actually super sweet. He likes Luka right from the start and hates seeing how everyone treats him like he is stupid because he isn't very good with the English language. He is an immigrant and so people treat him horribly at times, which doesn't sit well with Jonah. It was really nice seeing this guy come in and do what is right and not think twice about it. And while Jonah is helping Luka the two of them start to grow closer.
This story was a fun read. Jonah does have to make some tough choices - to stay and take care of the estate and be with Luka, or go back to NYC and his acting career. I really enjoyed how everything played out in the end. Luka and Jonah were so cute together.
