The fourth Adrien English book offers a decently entertaining mystery entwined with a more-than-decently entertaining love story. The mystery this time involves members of the Hollywood scene. The romance is still about Jake, who reappears in Adrien's life two years after he last saw him with a bundle of new revelations that throws Adrien for a loop. The climax to this one is almost as hard-hitting as that in the first story, after dropping off a bit in two and three. Another solid entry in the series, though I'm starting to feel like those pesky murder investigations are getting in the way of the real story between Adrien and Jake. YMMV. ( )

Great mysteries with an overarching relationship between bookseller Adrian and closeted cop Jake. Excellent romantic suspense series and a popular entre into this very popular writer's work. (Karen) ( )

Whaaaaaaaat????? I can't really write a coherent review right now.

This was by far the most action packed, detailed and interesting book so far. And we got Jake pull his head out of his ass, too. Woohoo.

I'm going to start the last book now. Maybe they can have a little baby together. *snort* ( )

I did not expect the climatic events that both resolved the mystery and drastically impacted Adrien's life, but once again Lanyon has me finishing one book and already desperate to pick up the next. It was not a cliffhanger so much as a game changer, and I can't wait for the next opportunity to read along with Adrien's life. ( )
