Blurb:

ain Elliott is a desperate man – on the brink of losing La Terraza, the 1920’s Spanish style courtyard apartment complex his grandmother left him in her will, he’s faced with the option of selling to a real estate developer or losing the building outright, due to the costs of upkeep that have now left him teetering on the brink of bankruptcy. One setback after another has slowly whittled away any hope he’d been harboring to turn the tides. Having time for little else in life, Cain’s guilt over his failure to protect the home of those who reside within the walls of La Terraza has crippled his spirit.

On the partnership fast-track at the flashy architectural firm of Hamilton-Bach, Henry Abrams is new in town, a little lonely and looking for inspiration. Tired of games and longing for something real, Henry discovers the road to happiness could lie in the arms of the sad, uncomplicated Cain Elliott.

Discovering that Hamilton-Bach represents the mysterious entrepreneur attempting to purchase La Terraza, combined with the self-doubt and mistrust over a love that develops too fast, leave both men struggling to decide whether or not they can truly find…Love in La Terraza.

My View:

Set in the beautiful if, aging, apartment complex left to Cain Elliott by his grandmother, Love in La Terraza was a sweet and entertaining read. There was such a nice community feel and I liked the extended cast of characters.

As was Henry, I was smitten with my first look at La Terraza. The way the scene was described was magical. I wish I could live there. Adding in the colourful occupants brought the story to life. Though central were Cain and Henry. I really liked their relationship, even if I felt “I love you” was uttered a little soon. However, who am I to judge.

There is some tension that keeps it from being boring but it ends bright and shiny. There were lots to keep me smiling.
