Blurb for the Poppy boys
I’m going to post this over on Goodreads too. If you want to follow the threadhop when it starts tomorrow night, here’s the link.

Here’s the blurb. It’s still kind of rough–I just did it this morning. I’m not sure how long it’s going to end up-right now, it’s at about 6200 words, but there’s a bit to go yet. We’ll have to see what the boys have to say for themselves as the story progresses. 😀
We’ve all heard those stock phrases. “When one door closes, another opens.” “There’s always a silver lining.” “When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.”
But, what if you’re the lemon?
After crashing and burning at his job in the Palliative Care Unit, a young nurse takes a cross-country road trip, hoping a break from his routine will be the transfusion he needs to heal his bruised heart. What he doesn’t expect is to fall head over heels in love with a chance met acquaintance, a man who lives in the moment, treating each day as an adventure.
An idyllic afternoon in a field of poppies leads to confessions by both men, but can their relationship survive the return to reality? Are the poppies a symbol of death, or a sign of rebirth?
