    Enjoyable!

    This story of the journey of a man who loses his much loved partner and later comes out the other side of grief to find love again was engaging and enjoyable. It has heart, and it touched mine.

    Fantastic Read

    "I don't want to go on without him." When we lose someone we love, nothing matters to the ones left behind, those that would give anything to have their loss love back. Jonathon Pfister would give any thing to turn back time and have his partner back in his arms. In this wonderful soul-searing story, you will cry when Jonathon's partner of seventeen years, Greg, dies. When you begin to read, you can feel the love and care between Jonathon and Greg and you will find tears in your eyes as you are drawn in to the story and fall for the characters. Nothing prepared me for the emotional roller coaster that I found myself on while I read this book and nothing -- and I mean nothing -- could tear me away from the story until I finished it.

    Two years after his death Greg's daughter, Jeana realizes that Jonathon will continue to grieve until someone pushes him back to the land of the living. Therefore, she talks him into a trip to Vienna for a two-month vacation while she tours Europe before starting college--a new and exciting place where memories of his life with Greg would not intrude. Some place where he could make new memories and start smiling again. One thing Jonathon is not looking for is a new lover but as the plot goes on, and "with more luck than he figured one person deserved," he finds himself falling in love again and he may return home with more than his suitcases... or maybe not. Will Fabian become a vacation fling or will Jonathon let go of the past and look for a future with a new partner?

    Andrew Grey has a style of writing that opens the mind and allows you to explore beyond gender, drawing you into the hearts and feeling of the lovers and the people around them. What stand out are the characters' personalities and the plot itself--the tears and laughter found between the pages that leave you biting your nails and worried about the ending.

    Would I recommend this book? You bet! And for any reader that wants to try a M/M story for the first time I would highly recommend reading this book. Some authors have a technique of writing that pulls at the heartstrings and can spin such an amazing tale that you cannot help but love their books and Mr. Grey worked his magical writing talent once more on Accompanied by a Waltz.

    One of the best and romantic books I have ever encountered. I must confess, my personal life and love mirrored the fictional story and all the threads. I highly recommend this book. However, please do not stop at the end of Chapter One (as I did, only due to the waves of sad painful memories as that chapter flooded my mind and I broke down...I have been seeing a Grief Counselor weekly since Feb. 2012 (time of the actual death of my partner) and a shrink monthly just for medication treatment and follow-up). This book ... once I was able to return to it and finish the entire book only to again re-read it entirely once again and again. I am awed at how the author .... wove all the characters and thoughts, dreams, hopes...and the book is a wonderful romantic fictional story. I enjoyed it and I hope you will also. Just give it a try as I don't think you will be disappointed.
