On the other hand, I think many of us hope for these happy endings as well, so it was a pleasant and happy read for me. Oct 03, Trisha Harrington rated it really liked it Shelves: cops-pis-bodyguards. This was a ya book really. There was nothing graphic in it and the characters were fairly PG in the book. I would recommend it to anyone who likes a sweet enough mm romance with crime tossed into it along the way. The characters were amazing though :. I'm having a really hard time with this review. I really liked this book.
It is fun to read and the two MC's are very likable men. The books style and structurengive you a diverting, entertaining and never boring collection of odd cases, so a very worthwhile read that was both suspenseful and fun and sweet at times. So why the hard time Mainly in the beginning. It's told not only from the perspectives of the two MC's but also sometimes shows the thoughts of one of the supporting characters.
This allows a very varied and special view of the storyline and also makes it much more interesting view spoiler [ because you don't even know who the MC will be in the very beginning On one hand it is very excessive in its descriptions, on the other hand it happens in such a laconic and dry and even marginal way - the discrepancy is very refreshing and charming.
The main focus is definitly on the mystery aspects of the storyline, but in the end, yes, there is a romance, albeit in the form of a very slow and tentative bonding between the two MC's - especially in the beginning very tentative and gradual, it's really sweet - talk about "slow burn". In that way, with the "episodes", it also differs from many other "novels". It is not one continuing storyline but more in the line of combined novellas that form a whole story arc, spanning over some years in the life and relationship of our two main characters.
I really enjoeyed this. On the bad side - what was botherinhg me, is the way they act when they finally find together and confess. It's so untypical for their characterization and behavior up until then, it was kind of annoying. I still don't understand the necessity of or like that scene. Actually that mushy interaction nearly spoiled the whole book for me. Fortuantely that part didn't last that long. Sweet, loving, quiet, but not over the top - at least not in this corner.
Let's not talk about the money issues, inheritances, family connections and Clints uncanny hand for "things" happening - because, quiet frankly - as unreal and over the top as THOSE things were - THOSE I enjoyed in this book! They were integrated in such an off-handed way - hilariously entertaining in some places precisely because they are so absurd!
No epilogue no conclusion. But - to give you a conclusion - I enjoyed it. That's all that matters. It was an interesting book, and I don't regret reading it and I suppose I'll even re-read it at some point, 'cause it was in many ways and most parts quite unique and delightful. Sep 30, Ashley rated it really liked it Shelves: m-m-fiction , sh-recs. This was an interesting book, it takes place over a four year period.
While its one books, it divided its five different parts, each part taking place from the beginning of Ed Givens and Clint Greengrass meeting, into their marriage and how a small town and county deals with have two sheriffs.

The first part, deals with Ed and Clint meeting, and Clint realizing he is gay, but not having the guts to ask Ed out, all while solving a murder mystery. In the second part, Clint has become sheriff and E This was an interesting book, it takes place over a four year period. In the second part, Clint has become sheriff and Ed is back to help solve another murder mystery. Their relationship progresses pretty fast during this murder investigation.
The next three parts take place after they have been married for a year or so, and you learn more about how the town of Bencher's Crossing loves these two men. There were a couple hard aspect in this book for me, the point of view changes a lot.

It for the most part is a third person narrator point of view, and the narrator language is interesting to say the least. Also the relationship between Ed and Clint isn't really the feature in this book, its really focus on them solving these murder investigations and how the town reacts to them.
I was really hoping for a bit more about their relationship. This is more of a collection of 4 short stories about these men. They are more of a procedural type of mystery but with gay men. The first story is quite excellent. And I quite like the procedural view point; it's fairly rare to come across. The other 3 stories are good but don't have quite the same amount of tension as the first one, which was a bit disappointing. Finally the resolution of the last story was a bit of a let down.
But the main char This is more of a collection of 4 short stories about these men. But the main characters traipse around the town and get to know the wide variety of citizens in Bencher's Crossing, TX.

Mar 14, Kiki rated it liked it Shelves: mystery. Enjoyable, but it didn't really engage me emotionally. I found the writing style uneven. Sometimes it felt stilted and awkward, but in other places I was definitely enjoying the sly humor. And I'm still left with the nagging question of who would ever use the word "rascal" to indicate someone who had committed a brutal murder? May 19, Stacia rated it it was amazing. I absolutely loved this book, more like a collection of stories that follow the same setting and the same main characters.
It's a taste of everything. If you like mysteries or outlaws and a sentimental journey you will love this book as much as I did. I need to read more stories from this author! And "A. Soo Donim?

If you love John Simpson or Etienne's writing style then you will love this. Mar 01, Marie rated it really liked it. Loved the writing style and enjoyed the mysteries.

Mar 13, Lori S. The romance is sweet, but a little cheezy. I really did like the characters. Even the secondary characters were good. May 27, jules marked it as dnf Shelves: relationship-m-m.
