Billy's Bones by: Jamie Fessenden
reviewed by: Becky
Kevin Derocher was thirty-two when he walked into Tom’s office, newly married, a baby on the way, and the collar of his red flannel shirt pulled up to hide the bruises around his throat from when he hanged himself in his garage. After his initial consult, therapist Tom Langois believes he’ll never see Kevin again—but Kevin turns up three years later to make repairs on Tom’s new house.
Kevin and Tom become fast friends, and Tom begins to suspect Kevin may be interested in more than friendship. However, Kevin remains haunted by something from his childhood—something so terrible he blocked it from his mind. These suppressed memories make it impossible for Kevin to get close to anyone without panicking and lashing out, sometimes violently. But as his past begins to surface, it becomes apparent that Kevin may hold the key to a twenty-five-year-old mystery: what happened to Billy?
I know this is an "older" book, coming out in 2013, but I got it last night and read right through, this author captivated me so much with the storyline, and the way the characters just came to life I had to finish it no matter how late it was :P!
Tom is a therapist, and sees Kevin one time after a suicide attempt, Tom knew Kevin needed help, but after the required session Tom knew Kevin wouldn't be back.
Imagine his surprise when three years later he is given Kevin's card as someone to call to get the hot tub at his new house working. The chemistry is all kinds of evident, even though Kevin is 'straight', there is a pull. Kevin has secrets, and the more Tom learns about him, the more worried about him, and at the same time drawn to him Tom becomes.
Kevin is living with a secret, a secret he doesn't even realize he has, it is locked away in his mind and though it must be brought to the surface, can Kevin's fragile mind handle the result?
Oh my goodness this is a must read! You will hurt for Kevin, and root for him and Tom, as well as be riveted by this amazing storyline! Thanks Jamie, for making me fall in love with a story that is both haunting and beautiful in the telling!
