Can two men drawn together by past and present events find love when and where they least expect it?

Unable to forget a secret of his past, Lee Mullens arrives at the Haver Corners Inn on his wedding day, alone. Guilt-ridden and confused, he retreats to their planned honeymoon location only to meet the attractive Sanders Hamilton.

Sanders feels the pull to his melancholy guest, and sets out to befriend the young man. But what grows between them is so much more than friendship…despite the fact that Sanders runs the inn with his wife.

Can Lee and Sanders overcome the conflicts in their lives and find their way to each other?

Lee Mullens goes to the Haver Corners Inn alone – not exactly how he planned to spend his honeymoon. At the last moment he’d been honest enough with himself and his ex-fiancee to admit he couldn’t go through with the marriage. Thoughts of the close friendship – and a single night of far more – with his childhood buddy continue to linger in Lee’s mind. When Sandy, the kind, patient co-owner of the Inn befriends Lee the two men find a bond growing deeper.

This is a short story full of life’s complications, convoluted feelings and deep desire. It ends on a wonderful positive note, but isn’t your traditional Happy Ever After. The author did an amazing job of showing us Lee and keeping him realistic. He is vividly drawn and I felt a real kinship with him, drawn to his problems and self-discovery. Sandy, too, is a sympathetic character and I found myself really hoping these two can find happiness together.

Honeymoon is a wonderful short story, a quick read and full of emotion, need and promise.
