Mixed feelings with this not quite romance story

The Truth About GoodbyeThe Truth About Goodbye by Russell Ricard

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a tough one for me to review because it took a while to really get into the story and to find the unique selling point which made me want to carry on reading it.

Sebastian’s use of Broadway and other musicals references to highlight his inner dialogue was a bit wearing at times and, at others, perfectly in keeping with the emotional dissonance he was feeling over moving on from his husband’s sudden and quite sadly tragic death.

I also wasn’t sure why it was set in 2008 to be honest, even with the time lapse jump at the end to be able to include the USA’s decision to allow same sex marriage.
