John Ford packed up his life a year ago and moved from LA to small Mercury, North Carolina after the death of his long-term partner. He’s been living in a kind of suspended animation, fixing up the old house he bought there, reclusive and alone. Until the day Connor Meecham appears.
Conn Meecham has returned home, only to find it isn’t his anymore. Someone else owns his mother’s house now. But Conn needs that house to find the man he left behind more than eight years ago--before the drugs, before prison, before his life derailed. Lonely, desperate, lost, Conn finds in John a kindred soul.
Mercury is a dying town. But John sets out to change that when he learns what it means to Conn. Through home improvements, sex, old friends, sex, misunderstandings, sex, and homemade cherry pie, John and Conn may finally discover that where they are now can be heaven on earth if they want it to be.
Cherry pie is winter nights by the warm fire, summery Sunday afternoons on the front porch, late night snacks in the warmth of the family kitchen. It is home: the house you live in, the life you lead, and the people who love you. Cherry pie is comfort.
Wealthy, successful and single John Ford is a man trying to recoup from the sudden loss of his lover, a soldier killed in the war. Their ideal retirement was a home in the quiet and quaint town of Mercury, North Carolina. As John tries to move on, he must deal with the grief and acknowledge the infidelity of the man that he loved. So, on his own, John purchases a lovely Victorian home just looking for restoration and a new life.
Tall, handsome and very sexy, Connor Meecham is trying to recover his life. After several bad moves that landed him in prison he wants to start over. Where better than home? After turning up on John’s front porch one day, Conner is invited in to look around and ends up staying to help restore the home that he grew up in. John gives Connor the connection to his past and Connor presents John with the acquaintance of his home town as well as hope for the future. Together these two men find in each other the strength to move on and build the type of life they’ve always dreamed of.
