Summer Spirit by G.Jay Review for Tribute Books

Summer Spirit Book Summary:
Ryan Kinkaid, a successful gay Manhattan antique dealer has had it with life in New York City, especially his random love life. Ryan has what most New Yorkers want — his own successful business, and a mortgage-free brownstone on West 71st Street. However, at age forty-one he discovers he is lacking one very important thing in his life: a meaningful and loving relationship. With summer just around the corner, the approaching heat and his restlessness are reasons for his escape from the city. A four-month rental in historic and picturesque Portsmouth, New Hampshire, with his best friend Lauren was the answer.

Renting a house built in 1810, kindred spirit Nicholas reaches out for contact, and Ryan finds himself wanting to know about the past. However, Nicholas is not the only one wanting Ryan’s attention. Ty, a handsome local man, also has strong desires for Ryan.

The stark contrast of the past collides with the present in this tale of lost and betrayed love, and irrational and undying prejudice.

In the end, all that is left is the affirmation of the value of honesty and commitment in love.

G. Jay's Bio: 
A communications graduate of the City Universities of New York, and after twenty-nine years as a human resources administrator, Jay decided to apply his understanding of the complexities and foibles of the human character in a more creative way.

Like the main character, Ryan Kinkaid, Jay is a gay man who believes in love and commitment. He and his husband have been together for over thirty years and live on the West coast of Florida with their two cats. A transplant from New York, Jay continues to travel regularly to Portsmouth, New Hampshire, to connect with the New England life which he so loves.

My Thoughts
Ryan Kinkaid decides to get out of New York for a break and rents a house with best friend Lauren. He runs a successful antique business but feels that there is something missing in his life, a permanent relationship. After a short time living in this rental he starts having vivid dreams about a young man. This young man is actually a ghost of a young man who died in the 1950's and lived in the house that Ryan is staying in for the summer. After some research and with the help of an elderly gentleman the real story comes around full circle to a bittersweet ending.

Summer Spirit is a fun story of love and romance that transcends time, heartbreaking and mysterious. This is the first in a new mystery series that I hope to read more of. 

I received a copy of this book for review and was not monetarily compensated for my review.
