Though Patrick and A.J. are not young puppies in any sense of the term, their story is enough to bring anyone back to their youth with squeals and laughs of delight. Chris King, a self-proclaimed brand bouncing baby author, still all sort of new and pink and thin skinned, makes her debut with We Talk of Love and Trust–a tale that proves you’re only as old as you feel.Patrick Gallagher is forty-five, far too old to play the dating game, and a longtime LA resident. When his grandmother Boots passes away, he moves to her home in Montpelier, Vermont–the middle of nowhere, to his friends Jordie and Michael, and what is that going to do to his social life?I don’t have a social life. I don’t want a social life. I’m content.This is the sort of situation just begging for an author to cackle, is that so?Enter A.J. Malone. Boots always chatted about her favorite ex-Marine boarder, and Patrick assumes he has his grandmother’s boyfriend figured out.You know the old saying about assume–luckily for Patrick, it’s not quite true. A.J. turns out to be a minor godling and not the geriatric fox he first envisioned.To the old Patrick, AJ is the fountain of youth, providing endless distraction and entertainment (to everyone else, anyway). It’s a perfect match in so many ways–but you don’t get through forty-five years without some ghosts. If Patrick can defeat his past fears and wicked blush, Montpelier could be better for him than Los Angeles ever was…but it’s going to take some time.
