I am almost afraid to read the next book in the series. That's how much I liked this one. In two hundred or so pages it managed to pack so many things and to stay awesome.

To escape a writer's block and whatever he and Jake have (or don't have as the case may be), Adrien goes to his ranch in northern California. Near the house he finds a corpse, but when the sheriff and his deputy arrive, the corpse is gone.
The whole story revolves around Adrien's property and what he finds there. The history of the town plays an important role. ( )

I'm loving this series. I really like how the main character is gay without the whole story being about his gayness. This book is a complete, very interesting mystery with his love life as just one of the factors. Humor and suspense pop up freely. I can't wait to start the next one. ( )

This is a great continuation of the complicated interaction between Adrien English and Jake Riordan, and many of their personal conversations highlight some of the differences between their thought processes and how they see things, which shows that, on a personal level, they would have a long way to go if their relationship (if you can even call it that) would ever work out. At this point, though the romantic in me wants that to happen, I'm not sure how it possibly can.

As for the case, the case is interesting, and the ultimate explanation isn't what one would expect from the earlier clues. ( )

Adrien English Mystery Series #2 Suffering from writer's block and frustrated with his tentative relationship with hot but closeted L.A.P.D.

By the time the sheriffs arrive, the body has disappeared, and Adrien once again finds himself playing amateur sleuth. But when the game turns deadly, Adrien turns to Jake.
