This was a very cute and sweet story. A tale on a lost love with letting go of the past plus reaching into your heart for a new love. Great humor in this romantic comedy.

Cameron has it all. He’s rich, lives in Manhattan, and even has a cross-dressing butler. But then he meets Nate, an Australian who’s bitter about love. Cameron is determined to turn this realist into a dreamer by sharing his world of classy restaurants, Broadway shows and fabulous parties. And while Nate’s friends see the makings of a fantasy romance, it’s Nate who has to learn that in order to open his heart, he has to face a painful secret.

“I think Prague is for lovers,” said Ben. He’d just complained about how milky the coffee was in the Czech Republic, and now this. “Yeah. Prague is the place you take your one true love.”

“Then what’s Paris?” I asked.

“That’s easy,” replied Lucy. “Paris is where you have a steamy affair.”

“Then I guess Amsterdam is for singles to get up to mischief,” I added.

My friends stared into space as if they were pondering the meaning of life, while their goulash was getting cold. I looked at my food. The enticing mix of hearty cuisine slopped on my plate had me slobbering like a mutt. My knife cracked the surface of my deep fried potato rosti, and as my fork made its way to my lips, it had to stop so I could take in the odor of this salty indulgence.

“Really, Nathan!” Lucy glared at me as if she was watching some kinky sex act even she’d disapprove of. “Just eat the bloody thing. I swear sex and food stimulate the same part of your brain.”

I crunched hard, making sure my grin reached both ears. She rolled her eyes and shoved a huge chunk of carrot and beef in her mouth before smirking. Strange violin music came from above. As I glanced up at the tinny speaker, the middle-aged waitress who looked as if she should cut down on sampling the food, sidled up to me.

“You like?”

She pointed to the speaker. I wanted to say it sounded like someone was murdering that musical instrument, but I decided to keep my mouth shut.

“My son. He practice music. Good, eh?” The three of us nodded. “I make louder.” She marched away proudly.

“Eat quickly,” said Ben. “That music sounds like someone is strangling a cat.”

“I never pictured a woman her age wearing lilac,” stated Lucy.

“Well, we are away from the tourist spots,” I said. “You have to expect local charm when we eat in this district.”
