Jonathon Pfister’s life has settled into a maudlin existence since the death of Greg, his lover of seventeen years. But Greg’s daughter Jeana has decided she’s had enough, so she rents a small apartment in Vienna for him as a Father’s Day present. Jonathon agrees to go, against his better judgment.

Surprisingly, Jonathon finds the change of scenery refreshing, and he even makes a young friend in Hans, his landlady’s son. Then Hans’s older brother returns home, and Jonathon begins to truly awaken. Fabian touches something inside him, especially when the younger man takes it upon himself to woo Jonathon in full Viennese style, with a waltz. But shadows of the past and expectations for the future loom over them both and will have to be banished for their lovers’ dance to stay in step.

He’s done it again!

Let me start by saying this one is a bit different from the others of Andrew Grey’s that I’ve read. That’s not a bad thing, never fear. But, I don’t normally need a box of tissues beside me as I read.

Accompanied by a Waltz begins with Greg and Jonathon but right after you meet Greg – and what a sweetie he is – he passes away, leaving Jonathon alone and broken hearted. Now, enter step daughter . . . She’s not content to allow her “Dad” to simply exist, so for Father’s Day she devises a plan to send Jonathon out of the country on an adventure, hoping to bring some life and joy back into his life.

Well, it works far better than planned when he meets and falls in love with Fabian, a younger, more wilful man that won’t take no for an answer. You can’t help but root for Fabian to win Jonathon over and what a sensual, sweet ride it is.

My heart broke for Jonathon when he lost Greg, but it wept for his and Fabian’s new found love . . . a love he almost looses.

Accompanied by a Waltz is a sweet, emotional story of one man learning to love and another learning to love again. Take the time to grab a copy and read this one! Just remember the tissues.

Andrew grew up in western Michigan with a father who loved to tell stories and a mother who loved to read them. Since then he has lived throughout the country and traveled throughout the world. He has a master’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and works in information systems for a large corporation. Andrew’s hobbies include collecting antiques, gardening, and leaving his dirty dishes anywhere but in the sink (particularly when writing) He considers himself blessed with an accepting family, fantastic friends, and the world’s most supportive and loving partner. Andrew currently lives in beautiful, historic Carlisle, Pennsylvania.

I love to hear from readers. Comments, thoughts, and questions are always encouraged and appreciated.
