The Apothecary's Garden (Revised)
Hilary Kent, a Londoner all his working life, retires to Wiltshire after an estranged cousin unexpectedly leaves him an inhabitable tower surrounded by an overgrown physic garden - and that's when graduate student Tom Laurence suddenly erupts into his life, convincing him that together they can restore the ancient garden to its former glory. Tom's cheerful friendship is the best thing that's ever happened to Hilary and he's perfectly content with that until, to his astonishment and confusion, it seems that Tom's affection for him is beginning to grow into something more ... something he feels he probably shouldn't allow.

About the AuthorJulie Bozza is an Aussie-English hybrid empowered by writing, fuelled by espresso, calmed by knitting, overexcited by photography, and madly in love with Amy Adams and John Keats.
"I loved this book. Two men falling in love based on more than just physical attraction (although that is there too), is beautiful. This is about a meeting of minds and souls. That there is an unsolved mystery surrounding the garden and a couple who lived several hundred years ago was just lovely." Erryn, Rainbow Gold Reviews
"This was quite a beautiful romance, and strange enough, while the pace was slow, for various reason I will explain, the story wasn't at all boring, and actually it was captivating, like a blanket wrapping you in winter, letting no desire to go out of your nestle. ... I liked how respectful the author was of these two men, and how she didn't deprive them of the sexual nature of their relationship. Tom is 23 years old and it would be unbelievable if he hadn't desires; sure their love making is different from that of two twenty something fellows, but nevertheless is satisfying for the both of them." Elisa, My Reviews and Ramblings
"I can only hope that 'once upon a time' the story between Hilary and Tom actually took place because this slowly formed friendship that then unfolds into love ... It's just a love, that if it existed, made the world a little better of a place." Runell, Bachelors and Bombshells Book Reviews
"If this was the last m/m book I ever read, I would die happy." Ulysses Dietz on Amazon and Goodreads
