Nerdy, introverted genius lepidopterist, Lawson Gale, is an expert on butterflies. He finds himself in a small town in Tasmania on a quest from an old professor to find an elusive species that may or may not even exist.
Local Parks and Wildlife officer, Jack Brighton, is an ordinary guy who loves his life in the sleepy town of Scottsdale. Along with his Border collie dog, Rosemary, his job, and good friends, he has enough to keep from being lonely.
But then he meets Lawson, and he knows he’s met someone special. There’s more to catching butterflies, Jack realises. Sometimes the most elusive creatures wear bowties, and sometimes they can’t be caught at all.
Lawson soon learns there are butterflies he can’t learn about it in books. They exist only in a touch, in a kiss, in a smile. He just has to let go first, so these butterflies can fly.
Imago is the story of finding love, bowties, and butterflies.
Where To Buy:
This story was lovely. I adored Lawson and Jack. They made a fabulous team and worked well together on so many levels. The way they courted each other was beautiful to watch a well. Ms. Walker writes wonderful emotion and this book was no exception. I was pulled in and didn’t stop reading until the book was over. I enjoyed it from start to finish.
Lawson was unabashedly himself and din’t much care what other thought of him. He knew he was smart and how others treated him because of it. He also was aware of how he missed most of the social mores and clues. He had his own code of ethics and I loved how they played a role throughout the story. He was a total geeky cutie and I loved his bow ties and unlimited knowledge of animals. I loved the moment he and Jack roundabout admit they love each other right before the middle of the night call.
Jack was an amazing man. He was a gentleman and treated everyone around him with respect. His courtship of Lawson was tender and endearing and I adored every moment of it. His need to have things perfect to impress Lawson was so wonderful. His dog Rosemary was a lovely addition to the story and became a character herself. Jack’s obvious love of the outdoors and respect for Lawson’s job won me over immediately. I enjoyed how he helped Lawson when he could but also sat back and just let Lawson do his thing.
Jack and Lawson’s dates were lovely. Their courtship was both slow and quick at the same time. While it seems impossible to do that, it worked well in this story. The slow build up of how they did things and when they would go to each “next level” compare to how quickly they fell into a rhythm of being together and in love made for a beautiful start to a relationship. Their happy for now ending gives me so much hope they’re going to make it long term. I cannot wait for the sequel to see more of these two. I also hope there’s more about the Warner Cooper and how it’s presented to the world.

She is many things; a mother, a wife, a sister, a writer. She has pretty, pretty boys who she gives them life with words.
She likes it when they do dirty, dirty things…but likes it even more when they fall in love. She used to think having people in her head talking to her was weird, until one day she happened across other writers who told her it was normal.
She’s been writing ever since…
