Nortown #4
About the Author
Gay fiction—sometimes with a sprinkle of romance, sometimes with a dash of horror, sometimes with a pinch of paranormal, and sometimes a mix of it all.

Ofelia Gränd is Swedish which often shines through in her stories. She likes to write about everyday people ending up in not-so-everyday situations, and hopefully also getting out of them. She writes contemporary and paranormal, and dreams about one day writing a post-apocalyptic story--if that ever happens we'll see. 

Her books are written for readers who want to take a break from their everyday life for an hour or two. 

When Ofelia manages to tear herself from the screen and sneak away from husband and children she likes to take walks along the coastline and watch the sea. She's recently discovered the miracle of podcasts and spends her strolls listen to wise people talk.

Chris Hart owns the only grocery shop in Nortown, but he isn't exactly overrun by customers. Some days he wonders why he bothers to open the doors at all. Spending his days smiling at the few people that do trickle in and his nights alone in bed isn't the most interesting life a man could lead. But when Chris suddenly gets the excitement he's been craving, it may just be more than he bargained for.

Gabriel Miller loves his life. He's close to his sister, has a job he adores and is the proud owner of one and a half cats. But all of it is taken away when he witnesses a murder and, to keep him safe, the police place him in Nortown, of all possible locations.

Chris can't believe they're letting someone live in his gran's old cabin in the middle of the winter; it's too cold. When the poor man shows up in his shop looking to buy clothes, Chris's heart melts, despite the freezing temperature. Gabriel notices the way the shopkeeper looks at him, but it can't be right. No one looks at a heavyset man with heat in their eyes. Do they?

When the danger follows Gabe to Nortown, it's more than their chance at happiness that is threatened, and Chris and Gabe find themselves fighting just to stay alive.

Gabriel/Gabe and Chris
I loved this book hard, the personalities, the environment, the developing, the depth...everything was just right in this book. My heart jumped more then once. 

Gabriel put away in a cabin in the woods of.....Nortown for God sake, as a witness, under police protection. This all because he witnesses a murder crime.
It's freezing and scary and he misses his cats (duhh) and home.
With the car he may use he's going to get some caramel latte and cinnamon rolls....not!!
The people in the small town are nice, gossiping along and easygoing.

The tension between Chris and Gabriel is honest, almost endearing. Gabriel feels somewhat inferior with his big body and flabby belly.....but Chris only sees Gabriel in the way he is....gorgeous and soft and warm and now damn....Chris is flirting....Gabriel thinks this can't be happening.....no way...

Still Gabriel is anxious and sad...besides Chris he is all alone...
Then from out nowhere there is a delivery package and within it are just the things he loved most...:) I could just cry for Gabriel

There is a nasty case in this story which put me on the edge...luckily it turns out in the right way...it cost me only one nail...

I could visualize the whole picture....because the way this all is written is just....ahhh.. Straight into my heart....this story had all the feelings in it!! And those two men together....*swoon*

My simple brain can't handle the fact that there are authors who can write short(er) stories which are more complete and honest and full of feelings than any other long story ever can accomplish.

Bow to Ofelia Gränd

Highly recommend (the whole Nortown serie)
