Blurb: First in a new series!
Still grieving over the sudden death of his lover, antiques dealer Flynn Ambrose moves to the old, ramshackle 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.
Review: A ghostly murder/mystery in true Lanyon form. While this new series has a lot of the bookmarks of the Holmes & Moriarity series, the ghosts are all new, and the tormented and depressed Flynn gives me chills. The “agreement” he works out with his family haunted the back of my mind, having thought I knew what it might be, awaiting the big reveal. Now I must say I am a fan of Josh’s work. I am a murder/mystery hound, and when you throw in two hot lovers, it’s even better! The spookiness, the clues, and chasing down leads into the lady in the mirror kept me thoroughly entertained. The sexual content is not the main draw here, and while it was sensual, the bedroom scenes were merely a stepping-stone for this ghost riddle-solving new couple, or should I say roommates. I look forward to the rest of the series, and hopefully Kirk can work some sense, and sensuality, into Flynn’s life! If you love sleuthing, grab this book!
