“Long Shadow” By Elle Keaton

Narrated by Michael Dean

Hamarsson & Dempsey, Book 2

Blurb:

Niall’s known nothing but betrayal. All Mat wants is Niall’s heart; what will it take for him to coax Niall in from the cold?

Mat’s connection with Niall is tenuous. One step forward, two steps back. Since that night on the beach Niall’s been avoiding Mat like a bad case of the flu–which, ironically, most of his deputies have come down with. What will it take for Niall to believe Mat wants him for who he is?

Mat’s overworked, Niall’s unnerved, and then things really go sideways.

Will a killer destroy everything before Niall realizes they are stronger together than apart?

Long Shadow is a dual POV about a broody introvert and a somewhat patient Sheriff. Mat will have to prove to Niall he’s the man for him. The Hamarsson and Dempsey series follows the same couple as they find their way to their happily ever after.

MMy Thoughts and Review:

**This could get a little spoilery regarding Book #1 and the relationship between the MCs. If you have NOT read Book #1, read my review at your own discretion… or peril. 😂

Ok, going to get this part done because for anyone who has read more than five of my audio reviews, you know this to be a universal truth… I could listen to Michael Dean recite death metal lyrics all day and still swoon as I did over Andrew McCarthey’s smirk in “Pretty in Pink,” for the first time. Yes, I’m old…ancient news. Back to Mikey! My eardrums live for that deep whiskey smooth and honey-coated voice to tell them stories of men falling in love. OHHH and sweet Georgia Brown, that laugh can make a million butterflies take flight. If you have never acquainted yourself with the vocal talent of this narrator, this series is the perfect chance.

Be sure you pick up book #1 first, however. This is a continuing series, and while it can be listened to and appreciated on its own, there is no way to love, root for, understand, and crave for the MCs to overcome all they need to without the foundation you get laid down for you in the first book.

I absolutely loved book two. As soon as the story began, I knew it was going to be one of those “greet the dawn,” stories. It very nearly was, but my old body zonked out around four something. When I woke at ten the next morning I had around half an hour left.


In book two, there is still the unsolved arson cases and new ones piling up. Hamarsson is on his way back to his new/ old home, while Sheriff Mat Dempsey is dealing with an illness that has taken out half of his department. Unfortunately, when your department only consists of four, half the force is the difference between a small community’s survival with an arsonist still at large.

I love all the mystery and intrigue Keaton brings to this small town. So many skeletons linger, and secrets from decades of how things from a past generation did things differently. With Mat in his father’s role as Sheriff some people still find it hard to swallow, no matter how long he’s been doing it now.

If Matt and Niall can find common ground and stay put on it, they might actually be able to unlock all the closet doors. Niall Hamarsson has to stop running and face his demons first. Unfortunately, the arsonist might get to Mat before anything good can happen for them. There really is no getting out of this one unscathed.

This was one – Nail biting, foot shaking, causing my cat anxiety as I mumble out loud and make comments about what’s happening GREAT story! Keep ’em comin’, Elle! 💜

I received an audio copy of this book from GRR in exchange for my review.

Excerpt:

He paused at the guardrail, his hands jammed into the pockets of his jacket for protection from the cold. As he stood at the end of the road, the fog began melting away, slow at first and then faster, until he could see all the way across the water to the mainland crouching in the distance. Niall took a deep breath of the salt-laden air, filling his lungs, then released it. As he stared out at the dark silhouette of land, something unnameable inside himself loosened a bit further, a nearly tangible click into place.

Piedras felt right. Niall didn’t feel like an old-timer, but he did have a history on the island; he existed here as more than a bitter homicide cop. Some islanders—like Mat Dempsey—even seemed to want him there. Most of the residents seemed to accept Niall’s presence, and the few who whispered behind his back… well, that’s the way things had always been. And, he thought as he breathed in and out again, more than likely the camper was no big deal.

He was making a mountain out of a molehill—something his grandmother used to say quite often. There was likely a perfectly good, lawful reason the owner was driving around the island and only using facilities when they were less likely to run into other inhabitants. The cop in him protested. Niall tried to ignore it. His thoughts drifted further afield, as the fog continued to fade, to the sexy and very available Sheriff Dempsey. Mat seemed to see right into Niall’s soul and never once flinched—he actually thought he liked Niall.

Mat was something Niall had never had in his life, or not often, anyway. Mat represented family, safety, commitment. Given everything Mat had done since Niall had come back to Piedras, it should be easy for Niall to trust him. But he couldn’t find the off switch for the little voice inside that pinged a warning every time he and Mat got close. It was, however, proving difficult to stop thinking about him.


Check out book 1 and see where it all began… Conspiracy Theory by Elle Keaton Narrated by Michael Dean

Hamarsson & Dempsey, Book 1

Blurb:

Mat Dempsey returned to Piedras Island after his father’s death. These days he’s Island County’s sheriff. He’s happy enough, even if moving home from San Francisco effectively forced him back into the closet. Mat’s well-ordered universe collapses when a local’s body is discovered floating in the cold waters of Hidden Harbor’s marina. All hell breaks loose in the community, and accusations fly…all coinciding with Niall Hamarsson’s return.

Niall and Mat have a history, and it’s not one Mat’s proud of. He owes Niall an apology, even if it means getting down on his knees. However, Mat’s first priority is investigating the murder before his community tears itself apart, and he may have to ask the aloof Niall Hamarsson for help.

Push apart, pull together, yes or no… The chemistry crackles between them, but will the two men be able to put aside their pasts and embrace a future?
