Rainbow Place – Rainbow Place #1
Bookreview / October 22, 2018

Rainbow Place is a new series by Jay Northcote, all centred around an LGBT friendly cafe in a small English town. The perfect setting for all kinds of things, like we will learn pretty soon. Seb Radcliffe relocates to a small town in Cornwall, determined to make something of his new life. Because he is used to life in the big city, he misses queer spaces and LGBT friendly people, so he decides to open his own LGBT friendly cafe-bar. But when he finds the perfect spot, it is going to need a little work and Seb is not cut out to do any DIY. So he hires someone to bring his dream to life. Jason Dunn is the local builder, hired by Seb to do the work on his bar. Like Seb, Jason is also gay, but he is deep in the closet and in denial. He has never allowed himself to be in a relation with another man, only occasional hook ups when he gets the chance. However, the second he meets Seb, it is love at first sight for both of them. But Seb is out and proud and doesn’t want to hide his feelings for Jason….
