Yet another fabulous romantic suspense starring Locke & Key!

Marriage is Murder CoverMarriage Is Murder by Aimee Nicole Walker

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!

Uprising Cover

Blurb

Isaac had lost Michael once. He wouldn’t survive a second time…

Michael

Five years ago, he became the alpha of the most influential London pack. Responsible for monitoring and suppressing the human resistance, also known as the Candidate Evacuation Group.

A group he’d secretly founded.

Now exposed and on the run, labelled a traitor by his peers, he finds refuge in the home of the man he left behind. The only man he’s ever loved.

For Michael, that love burns as bright as it always has, but they’ve been apart a long time. He can’t expect Isaac to still feel the same.

But he can hope.

Isaac

When Michael left for London after the war, he took Isaac’s heart with him, promising to return when the time was right. But that took longer than either of them expected.

Now he’s back, with the whole of the Shifter Alliance Party out for his blood. But being together is hard. Long-buried feelings bubble to the surface, and rekindling an old romance is low on the list of priorities—they have a rebellion to fight.

Isaac will protect Michael with his life.

Always.

But trusting him with his heart again isn’t nearly as easy.

Uprising is an angsty MM paranormal romance with second chances, suspense, and all the feels.

A triumphant way to end this shifter romance series

UprisingUprising by Annabelle Jacobs

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

For the final book, we move on from Cole and Logan and get to find out just what on earth has been going on behind the scenes with the CEG and what role Michael McKillan has played in the resistance.

I couldn’t have asked for a better ending to this series as it centres on Michael and Isaac, the alpha of the Mothecombe pack we’ve already seen risking his life to help shifters escape to Jersey.

It was clear from the end of book two that these two had some serious history between them and it slowly unfolds through this adrenaline-packed narrative.

There’ll be no spoilers here again, let’s just say I cursed, I raged for someone to die in a flaming pit of Hell, I sighed, I swooned, for gawd’s sake I nearly cried and that rarely happens!

With incredible pacing throughout, there’s no let-up from the moment the story starts until it reaches its very satisfying conclusion.

On the way, it chases through twists and turns, through secrets revealed and emotions laid bare before it continues to surprise with revelations I still hadn’t seen coming.

I was so glad Annabelle chose to add an Epilogue to this series, I really hope she hasn’t quite finished with it and we may get an odd short story or novella in the future.

But, if this is the end, it goes out on a perfect note for me, with nothing left to be said and two men, somewhat out of the first flushes of youth, living their best lives with two intermingled and small packs on a beautiful stretch of the Cornish coast.
