I’ve always really enjoyed this author and the first book in this series, Not Dead Yet, had me hooked from almost the first word.
Wes and Hudson are back again and have decided to not only give their relationship a second chance, but to also partner up in a private investigative firm. Everything would be wonderful if Wes weren’t keeping secrets from Hudson and if Hudson weren’t keeping secrets from Wes and if ghosts didn’t keep popping up and if Wes’s ex (who is also a ghost) wasn’t suddenly an issue, and, well…. you get the point.
I really love this couple. Wes is a little bit insecure and always creating more problems than he can handle because he keeps secrets when he shouldn’t and makes questionable decisions. But he has a good heart and would do anything to keep his loved ones safe. Hudson is tough, and gruff, and a big, yummy, silver fox who gets too bossy and forgets to include Wes in decisions, but who is strong and loveable. Their ups and downs and insecurities just make them more believable. Their romance is solid and sexy and I love them.
The mystery was well plotted and the pacing kept me turning pages even when I should have been settling into bed and going to sleep. Wes and Hudson have surrounded themselves with a wonderfully unique and loveable found family, and I can’t wait to get to know each of them better. The third book in the series, Graveyard Shift, releases in November 2019 and I’ve already got it on my TBR list.
This series has been on my ‘want to read’ list for what seems like forever. I decided to take a break from ARCs this week and finally read the first book in the Sebastian St. Cyr series.
IT. WAS. SO. GOOD.
A little bit of romance, a solid, intriguing mystery, interesting characters and a sexy Sherlock Holmes like hero who I think I’m half in love with already. Book two is at the top of my TBR list. I’m definitely reading it next.
I LOVE this series. This is the fourth book (a prequel to books one and three) and readers finally experience Lundy’s backstory and learn how she ended up at Eleanor West’s Home for Wayward Children. Hint: it involves a book, a magical doorway, and the goblin market.
Every book in this series has lived up to my expectations. This author never let’s me down. Whether the doorways lead to a city made of sugar or the land of the dead or even a goblin market whose foundation is logic, reason, and fair value, this author weaves magical fairy tales, that I believe would appeal to any and all readers. Each book is different as each character is unique. Their doorways offer them worlds where they can find acceptance and value.
I recommend this series every chance I get. I know the Syfy channel is bringing this series to the small screen, so hopefully this will inspire readers to pick it up.
“If you give everyone fair value, no one wants. If no one wants, no one has to take. The Market makes sure we don’t take advantage of each other.”
What’s up next week:
I have a ton of contemporary romance ARCs this month. I went crazy with the cutesy, cartoon cover book requests. Lol.
