Overview

Luka Krachec immigrates to the United States to find his cousin dead and his cousin’s wife hospitalized after a terrible accident. He meets Peter Montgomery at the funeral. The American seems nice and captures Luka’s attention when he offers to help him with his English.

Peter has spent most of his life believing he shot his father at age six, and his family uses his regret and overwhelming guilt to keep him under their proverbial thumbs. Peter does his best to make up for what he did by helping others, and agreeing to help Luka with his English yields something amazing when they hit it off.

When Peter opens up to Luka about what happened when he was a child, Luka senses some holes in the story and suspects Peter needs some help, so he approaches the head of the psychology department at the college where he works. Neither expects to open a long-barricaded door to secrets, denial, and family manipulation.

    One Good Deed is another deviation from Andrew Grey, and one, I

    One Good Deed is another deviation from Andrew Grey, and one, I have to say, that I have already reread twice. The story begins with Luka arriving in the US to find his cousin’s funeral his first destination, and his sister-in-law in a coma. What a way to begin a journey in a new county! Well, that event did provide Luka with one thing, an introduction to an American whose life revolves around helping others.
    Peter is a man whose life was derailed when he was six and his father was shot… he has always believed that he’s the one who killed his father and so he’s poured his entire life into helping, teaching, serving, and sadly, allowing his family to use and abuse him. That leads him to Luka, but when he offers to help the sweet man learn English, Luka teaches him more that a little about life, love, and himself.
    This story was lighter on angst, that many other Grey stories, but don’t let that fool you into thinking it’s a light story. It’s NOT. Between guilt, fear, a government that doesn’t want to let go, and both having to learn to move on from the past, this is anything but easy. However, it is wonderfully written, deeply touching, and passionately addictive.
    Love conquers all… be in hate, fear, guilt, or the past. This is one story you need to pick up and devour. It’s also one that will stay with you long after the last words are read. Oh, and Luka is one character that not only comes off as truly real, but it one I wanted to crawl into the pages to hug more than once. And if you’ve never read an Andrew Grey story (gasp!!! How!!!) this is a perfect time to dive in and enjoy.

    Really good story!

    This was another great story by Andrew Grey! I enjoyed seeing the characters falling in love and finding out the truth.
