Max and Julie

4.2 4
by Jon Rutherford
 

Cedric was excited when Julie asked if he'd put up Aaron, her college-professor son, for the Christmas visit he was making. Meeting Aaron, Ced was sure it was love at first sight--again. Maybe it was, but it soon got a lot more complicated, until finally things started falling apart. In the end, he wasn't sure what to think, about a lot of things.

Jon has lived in the Midwest USA for what feels like eons. Aside from brief sorties to New York, Winnipeg, and Baja California, and a longer sojourn in France (mainly Paris), the Midwest is where he's stayed, got his own degree in French (like Ben, in "Bumps," he found it no help in getting a job), and spent his working career: basically in civil service, including fascinating and sometimes even exciting work during seven years with a large metropolitan police department, as a civilian employee. (That's where he found his respect and admiration for police officers, which is occasionally reflected in his writing.)


Interests besides writing include classical music, reading, computers, and good movies. A bicycle commuter for several years, Jon racked up over 14,000 miles in (mostly) rush-hour traffic before an inner-ear disorder sabotaged the sense of balance, and hence cycling.


For several decades he was an ardent journal writer, before unexpectedly turning to fiction as a result of taking part in NaNoWriMo in 2010 (total failure) and 2011 (winner).


(Yawn...) Time for a nap, I think.

I've read two Rutherford short stories and this novella. There are a few themes which they have in common, but Jon has really written a very good story with _Max and Julie_. While it's a gay romance at heart, there is a bit of mystery to it. He does a great job of developing his characters, giving a bit of foreshadowing (without giving away the twists and turns of the plot), revealing the protagonist's inner thoughts, and developing a very believable, enjoyable plotline. I recommend it highly!
