Blurb: After the death of his longtime partner, American attorney Dan Evans is reassigned to his firm’s London office. It’s a change his life sorely needs. While admiring roses in a small village in the Cotswolds, Dan meets Martin Saint John. Martin, still fit and attractive at seventy, has also lost his partner, and now spends his time growing roses, meeting friends in the pub, and going to church on Sundays, content with his quiet life.
Roses and tea progress to spending weekends together exploring the countryside, but the differences between Dan and Martin go beyond the fifteen year age gap. If they can open their hearts and accept love—instead of accepting its absence—they might find a second chance at happiness.
All because of roses.
A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2015 Daily Dose package “Never Too Late.”

Review: Just because you are over 50 doesn’t mean you still want love. Dan decides to take the move his office offers him to London. He needs the change after the loss of his life-partner. There are too many reminders at home for him to move on.
He decides to find a house outside of London. He finds a very cute cottage and the neighbor across the street with a beautiful rose garden is a plus.
This was a beautifully written book about much older men. Martin is 70 and Dan 15 years younger. I adored the sweetness of the story how the two built a friendship. I loved the trips to stores and the slight differences between the men.
If you are looking for a sweet romance with older men, love antiques, thrift shops and roses, this is definitely for you.
