The Last Nights of The Frangipani Hotel is the most "normal" contemporary romance this author has written as far as I know. The main characters are two lovely intelligent men having a vacation on a mostly secluded beach. While it appears to be a simple holiday, life-changing realizations come out.
Although this is a story of two famous people, it is an every man tale. Most everyone can relate to their life feeling stagnant at some point. Things aren't bad, but life isn't vibrant either. One case of chance can shift everything.
For the two men, I would say this is the point in their lives which they will always remember as the moment of change. For me the message was to be one's true self and it may lead to happiness.
If you're looking for a book with sexy men hooking up and low dramatics, you should definitely give this one a try.
