Nerdy, introverted genius lepidopterist, Lawson Gale, is an expert on butterflies. He finds himself in a small town in Tasmania on a quest from an old professor to find an elusive species that may or may not even exist.
Local Parks and Wildlife officer, Jack Brighton, is an ordinary guy who loves his life in the sleepy town of Scottsdale. Along with his Border collie dog, Rosemary, his job, and good friends, he has enough to keep from being lonely.
But then he meets Lawson, and he knows he’s met someone special. There’s more to catching butterflies, Jack realises. Sometimes the most elusive creatures wear bowties, and sometimes they can’t be caught at all.
Lawson soon learns there are butterflies he can’t learn about it in books. They exist only in a touch, in a kiss, in a smile. He just has to let go first, so these butterflies can fly.
Imago is the story of finding love, bowties, and butterflies.
Evette gives it 3.5 stars.
I loved this story. There was tons of cute dorkyness, clever snark and two incredibly likable characters in Jack and Lawson.
I enjoyed the almost effortless way they came together, not likely to find two more different beings. The spark, the connection was one that made me just grin and grin and grin as I read this book.
Personally the low angst was just fine for me. I’d love to believe that many love stories don’t have secret lovers, babies, lives…
Sweet sighs, romantic dates, a lovely small town and tons of interesting butterfly trivia made this a beautiful read. Looking forward to the next installment in Jack and Lawson’s love story.
