Adriano is going home to Waldo, Florida, a town famous for having one of two official US speed traps and a flea market. Not much else is going on… Or is it?
A celebrated chef, Adriano has had to quit his job at a posh Beverly Hills restaurant because during his recovery from stage four cancer, chemo killed his taste buds. He can't even taste his own cuisine. About the only thing that penetrates the dull sensation is coffee, so he's bought a cafe in Waldo, hoping to find a new life in spite of his memory of it being a rigidly conservative town.
Looking forward to recuperating and spending time with his mom, Adriano soon finds that Colin Mackenzie—the first man he ever loved, the only man he has ever wanted—never left Waldo. He apparently hasn't forgotten Adriano either. But Colin, who once seduced then dumped him, seems to be playing games. He keeps coming into the cafe ordering his coffee—tall with room…for milk—but he doesn't seem to have room for Adriano. Soon, the love they once shared is re-ignited in an explosive way, but what is going on in Waldo? Why do things seem so…haunted by the past?
Reader Advisory: This book contains seductive descriptions of southern cooking at its finest, including unusual uses for honey butter!
