Alabama Summer

Alabama Summer - C.K. Alexander Solid novella about Jimmy and Chase whose relationship hits a bump in the road when they have to return to Jimmy's prejudiced hometown to care for his ailing mother. This story has a nice touch of realism and sympathetic characters. Even though Jimmy is weak in the way he faces his past, his fears are understandable and Chase is solid as a rock all the way through. Some sudden POV switches had me scratching my head trying to figure out who was talking. I think the dementia angle was a bit close to home for me as my own mum is suffering from it. It stopped me from really embracing the book. But for fans of romance between established couples this should be a treat.
