CRIMES OF PASSION
The Blurb: Somehow, after solving one particularly squirrelly case, Clay Mortimer and Tate Williams of M&W Investigations have been deemed experts in all things Fetish Alley. Tate’s taken an undercover assignment for the London police, and solves it with his usual flair. When a brutal and particularly sensitive murder send the shop owners and patrons of Fetish Alley up in arms, once again the police department calls upon Tate and Clay to take the lead in solving the grisly crime. Meanwhile their lives are being redefined in ways neither of them expected, and even though change can be scary, these brave men make certain that love guides them on every road they travel.
The love-child of Snark and Banter is back! I fell head over heels 👠 for Tate Williams in book #1 of the Fetish Alley Series, “For Fox Sake.” It was also my first read by this very clever, and insanely funny author.
Tate and his partner (both life and business), Clay, have found themselves called back to Fetish Alley to help the London fuzz solve a murder. Seems the folks in the Alley don’t trust their po-po all that much. However, they trust Tate and Clay, especially since they helped clear up the death of one of their own (read For Fox Sake).
The victim in this book was found in his place of employment, which sadly was my favorite shop in the last book ONLY because of what was found in the victim’s mouth in this book. Still with me???😂 I remember laughing so hard imagining display windows during the holidays with these things in them (you know, the thing from the victim’s mouth 👄. And let’s not pretend you’ve never called it a thing too.)😜 Dressing them like Santa’s reindeer, or Vampires and Werewolves. But, I digress…
This book got me all excited and happy and just bouncy inside, not cause there was a murder. Heavens no! My name’s not Jane Marple… not that anyone knows who that is anymore, not important, and I said three hail lady marmalades, when I read about the murder. I’m not a total heathen. Only half on my momma’s side. My daddy’s side is Seminole. And stop getting me off track, child. This is about, Death by ….🐓! That’s right! That baaaaadddd word. At least it is these days.
I loved there was a bit of a paranormal aspect to this. It had me wondering if the character was tied to the Men of London series and sure enough, the psychic used, Taylor, and his now fiance are a part of that series. I am chomping at the bit to start it! 😁
The long and short:
If you are looking for a story to enjoy in an afternoon that will make your cares vanish for a while, have you laugh out loud in places, roll your eyes at the cray-cray in others, look up a song, or bring back a memory through the silly, charming, and often surprisingly romantic gestures of the characters this HEA is absolutely for you.
