Audiobook Review: Turning the Page by Andrew Grey

Malcolm Webber is still grieving the loss of his partner of twenty years to cancer. He’s buried his mind and feelings in his legal work and isn’t looking for another relationship. He isn’t expecting to feel such a strong attraction when he meets Hans Erickson—especially since the man is quite a bit younger than him.

Hans is an adventure writer with an exciting lifestyle to match. When he needs a tax attorney to straighten out an error with the IRS, he ends up on the other side of the handsome Malcolm’s desk. The heat between them is undeniable, but business has to come first. When it’s concluded, Hans leaps on the chance to make his move.

Malcolm isn’t sure he’s ready for the next chapter in his life. Hans is so young and active that Malcolm worries he won’t be able to hold his interest for long. Just when he’s convinced himself to take the risk and turn the page, problems at the law office threaten to end their love story before it can really begin.

Malcolm is grieving the loss of his partner of over 20 years to cancer, and has buried himself in his job as a tax attorney. He is the epitome of steady, solid, quiet man who isn’t looking for romance despite the well meaning interference of devoted assistant and his meddling brother.

Hans is an adventure writer with a lifestyle to match who finds himself on the wrong side of the IRS and in need of a good attorney. Hans sits himself across the desk from handsome Malcolm and there is instant attraction, but there is business that must be attended to first. Once that is concluded, and after a chance meeting, Hans leaps at the chance to get to know Malcolm.

Malcolm is interested in Hans, despite the guilt at moving on, but worries he is too old and set in his ways to keep up with Hans, or maintain Hans’ interest for long.

What follows is a lovely rolling story including adventures, drama, self doubt, bad guys and health threats. I rooted for the guys from the outset and loved the cast of supporting characters. The premise of having to start again past the first flush of youth resonates throughout the story, and is meaningfully done.

The narration is super, with such a yummy nordic accent for Hans, that I actually listened to the book twice over!

The ending is happy, but it isn’t a perfectly smooth path. I really enjoyed it.
