Rupert is a bit of a dreamer, somewhat naïve even in his 30's, and determined to prove himself as a responsible entrepreneurial chef in his native England as he did in Australia--which he has fled because of his boyfriend's peccadillos. Jake is a wonder boy of sorts (maybe late 20s), and a saint because he is trying to save his late brother's organic farming legacy while also caring for his sister-in-law and niece and nephew.
That they hook up, so to speak (there is not much sex here until the late part of the book, and much of it is muted), is simply a result of Rupert's inherent nature--if something strikes him as wrong, he goes looking for why, and an encounter at a farmer's market in London provides him with the spark to get the narrative rolling.
Adam Fitzroy has created a wonderful family here, and you will fall in love with them deeply as it goes on and on. Bravo!
