A – Z | Killer Cassava!

I went hunting for a K on Amazon and came back with Killer Cassava!: A One-Hour Mystery, Thriller & Suspense Short Read (Gluten-Free Gay Mystery Book 1) by Joss Clark.

Ever since Corona hit, I’ve had a hard time reading. I’ve written some, but reading just doesn’t hold my attention, so I figured something short would be good. I found this among the one-hour reads on Amazon, and being gluten intolerant the title caught my attention.

This is a quick, funny read and every chapter ends with a recipe – gluten-free, of course! I would’ve wanted to know a bit more about the characters. Since I didn’t ‘know’ them, there was no way I could figure out who the murderer was, couldn’t even guess, and I do like to be able to at least guess.

And while it’s cute to have a guy talking to his cat, I kept wondering what the health authorities would have to say about Gregory bringing his cat into his bakery kitchen.

If you’re looking for romance, this isn’t it. It’s a cosy mystery, a story about a baker and his cat, and at one point he gazes longingly into the eyes of a police officer LOL. But, it was interesting enough to hold my attention. I mean, who doesn’t like murders??

A – Z |The Dark Horse

I’ve read The Dark Horse (The Dark Horse #1) by Josh Lanyon which means D now is completed as well. I guess most M/M readers have come across books by Ms Lanyon. I’ve read my fair share, though far from all of them. This, for example, is from 2012, so quite a few years old now. I think, of all Lanyon stories I’ve read, Winter (The Haunted Heart #1) is my favourite, but this isn’t bad either.

We have a tough detective and Hollywood actor who has managed to attract a stalker – all in classic Lanyon fashion.

As a teen Sean, the actor, had some mental health problems, and that makes everyone around act as if he’s fragile and unable to see things clearly. He might begin to believe them, but when his best friend and his lover start making decisions for him, things go from bad to worse.

While this is a mystery, a chase to get to the stalker before it’s too late, it’s just as much a story about a fragile relationship and what lack of trust and communication might cause.

It’s Lanyon, you know what you get, you know it’s gonna be good, so if you’re in the mood, check it out.

The Dark Horse by Josh LanyonLove is a dark horse—and Sean Fairchild is in for the ride of his life.

Paul Hammond is dead. That’s what tough and sexy LAPD Detective Daniel Moran tells his lover, Hollywood actor Sean Fairchild—and Sean wants to believe him, but what about those threatening postcards in Hammond’s handwriting? What about the fact that he’s seeing Hammond everywhere he goes? Yes, Sean’s had some emotional problems in the past, but that was a long time ago and he’s not imagining things, so why is Dan looking at him that way?

The last thing Sean needs is someone doubting him, especially when he’s competing for the coveted leading role in the screen adaptation of The Charioteer. But then again, as ex-lover and manager Steve points out, what does Sean really know about his new boyfriend?

Dan is a dark horse—and maybe Sean is betting too much on this relationship. It’s not just Sean’s career at stake, or his relationship, or even his sanity—-it’s his life.

Winter – The Haunted Heart

For years my reader friends have been raving about Josh Lanyon, read every book she’s released and so on, and I’ve never understood the frenzy. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve enjoyed the Lanyon books I’ve read, but they haven’t turned into a squealing fangirl. I’ve picked up a few books here and there, done a few buddy reads, and her writing is good, the mysteries entertaining, but when I’ve closed the book I’ve forgotten about it.

But I get it now... Winter is freaking fabulous! I loved this story so much.

Here we have a creepy old house, a main character who is so lost in his grief he is beginning to fade from the world, and a haunted mirror. The story might not be filled with surprises but damn it sent shivers down my spine LOL.

I’m so glad this is the first book in a series because I want more of Flynn and Kirk…and I want to know more about all the stuff hidden away in the basement…and Kirk, of course. There is definitely something tragic in Kirk’s past. Plus any story mentioning shrunken heads is awesome, it’s just the way it is.

If you haven’t read this is looking for something to get you in the mood for Halloween, pick this up!  You won’t be disappointed.

The Haunted Heart Winter First in a NEW series!
Still grieving over the sudden death of his lover, antiques dealer Flynn Ambrose moves to the ramshackle old house on Pitch Pine Lane to catalog and sell the large inventory of arcane and oddball items that once filled his late uncle’s mysterious museum.

But not all the items are that easy to catalog. Or get rid of…

The Haunted Heart series. Four seasons. Four ghosts. Two hearts.

Winter.

Since Alan died, Flynn isn’t eating, isn’t sleeping, and isn’t spending a lot of time looking in mirrors. But maybe he should pay a little more attention. Because something in that 18th Century mirror is looking at him.
