Nanee's Review of Let Go of Loneliness by Edward Kendrick
When Byron Randall -- in his mid-fifties, single and alone -- moves into a new condo complex, he meets another resident, fifty-five year old realtor Jonah Hyland -- also single since his breakup with his much younger lover. The two middle-aged men become friends, sharing common interests in gardening and hiking.
As their friendship deepens, each man wonders if he has found someone he could learn to care for. Then Jonah's ex reappears in his life, much to Byron's dismay. Will this end Byron and Jonah's budding romance? Or will they discover that, together, they can let go of loneliness?
I always enjoy Edward Kendrick's stories, whether they have mystery and intrigue or just love and friendship, I get drawn in from the beginning and get lost in the characters he creates.
Byron Randall is single and starting a new job in a new city, he moves into condo complex where he meets his sexy neighbor Jonah Hyland. Jonah just broke it off with a much younger man not long ago but is intrigued with his new neighbor. These characters are both middle aged, set in their ways and lonely in some aspects of their lives and when they meet a instant connection forms from having things in common and the need to feel connected to someone. I loved how they spent so much time together whether it was hiking, gardening or just having dinner, their friendship was effortless and I loved how much they needed each other. This story was lighthearted, sweet and loving all in one.
