Reading Josh Lanyon's A Vintage Affair was like being dropped into a skewed version of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof by Tennessee Williams and the 1944 film Arsenic and Old Lace written by Joseph Kesselring and directed by Frank Capra. If you have a thing for wine or the old south (even though the story takes place in modern times), you'll love this story. Austin is a very sweet man and even though Jeff has a few hang-ups he will make a great partner for him. With a touch of mystery, some very quirky characters one m/m and one m/f/m scene this is a fun and easy read.
Message in a bottle.
Somewhere in the cobwebbed cellar of the decrepit antebellum mansion known as Ballineen are the legendary Lee bottles -- and Austin Gillespie is there to find them. The last thing on his mind is hot and heavy romance with handsome bad boy Jeff Brady. But Jeff has other ideas and, after one intoxicating night, so does Austin.
The only problem is they have different ideas. Jeff doesnít believe in love at first sight, and even if he did, heís buried more deeply in the closet than those famous missing bottles of vintage Madeira. Popping a cork or two is one thing. Popping the question? No way. No how.
Unless Austin is ready to give up on another dream, heís going to have to figure out how to make sure the lights go on -- and stay on -- in Georgia.
