Beneath the Stars

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


On the cusp of launching his fashion line for transmen and butch women, Sid Marneaux receives a life-altering phone call. His father, who raised his family alone, is in failing health. As he returns home, he wonders if he could lose the business he has spent most of his adult life building.

What he could not have anticipated was meeting Eddie Garner, the city’s new fire chief. After a heroic rescue, their romance sparks hot, launching into a swift affair. But Eddie is harboring his own burdens: the painful death of his best friend and the responsibility of raising her young son—their son—Adrian.

Through the wisdom of a child and the connection of mothers-now-gone, Sid, Eddie and Adrian venture and fumble to define family, career, and most importantly, love.

From Publishers Weekly

Feb 20, 2017 – Charles delivers a slightly cloying contemporary about finding love in the wake of tragedy. Fireman Eddie Garner moves to Connelly, Pa., after his platonic best friend, who's also the mother of his child, dies of cancer. In his new home, he meets up-and-coming fashion designer Sidney Marneaux, who is splitting his time between his life in Chicago and helping his sister take care of their deteriorating father in Connelly. Both men find an instant and sweetly rendered connection, and their early courtship is a delight to read. When Eddie's son, artistic and talkative five-year-old Adrian, arrives on the scene, the story bogs down in a series of overly saccharine moments that undermine the delicate sentimentality of the earlier novel. All three characters work through their grief and responses to loss by pulling together and learning to form a family, but their interactions lack the charm necessary to justify the number of pages devoted to their straightforward struggle.
