Blurb: Derek Martin becomes a suspect in the murder of his ex-lover. Chance Martin, Derek’s twin and a disgraced TV reporter, is certain Derek isn’t the killer. Then a second man is murdered, pointing to the existence of a serial killer.
Detective Nico Villa is bent on capturing the ‘Slasher’. He is none too happy when Derek involves himself in the case, above and beyond some initial assistance on Derek’s part.
Meanwhile, Chance’s ex, and the reason for his disgrace, newspaper reporter Tyler Burke, becomes caught up in what is happening when he tries to assist the detective and make amends for what he did to Chance.
Can these four men stop the ‘Slasher’ before he stops them? And in the process, will the attraction, both new and renewed, that Derek and Chance feel respectively for the detective and the reporter, survive what is to come?
Review: If you like, a nice mystery combined some sweet romance; Edward Kendrick is the author for you. These stories are a great choice to snuggle up on a cold winter night or for a nice day on the beach.
The Martin twins are quite the charming pair. I loved how a mystery of closeted gay men being brutally slain, brought these four men together.
Chance and Derek are twins. Chance was a TV reporter but a bad split with a competitive boyfriend ended that career. Derek his twin manages a costume shop, it’s near Halloween and he just finds out his ex-boyfriend was murdered about the time they broke up and is panicking.
He meets Nico a cop that comes to question him and soon things take a strange turn. Soon Tyler chances ex gets involved trying to get a story and perhaps something else. Wanna know what else he wants? Read the book!!
I found the mystery fun, the men funnier!
If you like a cozy mystery, a little suspense, loving relationships, reporters, hot cops and a sweet ending this is definitely for you!
