Yet another fabulous romantic suspense starring Locke & Key!
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I don’t know how she does it (well, that’s a lie, I do know, it’s bloody hard work and fantastic research) but Aimee Nicole has added yet another awesome murder mystery for me to try and figure out who done it!
And this time I was so sure I had figured it out, only to be hit with another twist right at the end which was both brilliant and totally obvious once you knew it 😁
No plot spoilers here, as always, but the pacing on this book is a lovely mix of fear and heart-racing terror when a trip to the hardware shop for Sawyer takes a menacing turn and the more steady, chipping away of the clues which lead to Royce and Tara solving the Bon Jovi (that’s what I’m calling it, it’s not called that in the book!) murder.
Our heroes though, they’re on fire as they move closer and closer to their own wedding and some of the sexy times in this book reach off the chart heat levels simply because of the emotional intimacy these two men have between them.
It’s fan the flames hot at the same time as so beautifully vulnerable because of the trust between them.
There’s a very clever secondary plot thread running through this one which started in book one and which concerns Sawyer’s old nemesis Sheriff Wheeler and I was very happily surprised by the turn that took.
And speaking of surprising twists, there’s another one which occurs that’s much closer to home for the Locke boys as Royce stands up for his brother Jace when he marries Holly and I’m not saying I might have got a bit teary at their wedding but…
Now, with just one book to go, I have to say if this is the end of the road for these two amazing men, I’ll be so very happy to have followed on their journey and will be wishing them all the joy in the world – after they finish solving the next murder that is!
