Eli Henninger is stretched a little thin. He teaches riding classes, conducts therapy sessions, takes care of his son, and helps manage the family farm. He’s tired and overworked, especially because lately, no one else seems to do anything right. He and his partner, Geoff, haven’t have time together in so long, he’s beginning to forget what his longtime love feels like.
Geoff is just as busy with the farm, the business, and working through a complicated land purchase. He and Eli labor from sunup to sundown and then some. He knows taking care of their responsibilities is preventing them from taking care of each other, but he doesn’t see anything he can do about it. To make matters worse, they’re accused of behaving improperly toward some of the children in their riding programs.
Then Eli becomes ill and the investigators suspect foul play, forcing Geoff to reevaluate his priorities and hope fate will give them another chance.
Love Means… Renewal is the newest in the Farm / Love Means… series and while short at only 56 pages, I loved revisiting Eli and Geoff along with all the wonderful people that live and love there.
As the blurb says, Eli is the recipient of someone’s hate when he becomes ill but watching as he and Geoff struggle with all the demands of work, business, family, and poisoning was heart wrenching at times.
In the end, Andrew shines as always when he reminds us that love is the true heart of a family, gender be damned, lol. Reading Renewal makes me want to bring out Love Means… No Shame and revisit how Eli and Geoff found each other and a love that has now spanned 10 years!
Plus there is a free short called Love Means… Joy
