The old axiom of "What you see is what you get" cannot be said to apply to Olivia Winters, the seemingly gracious and vivacious daytime television host who Peter Brandon is commissioned to paint after he and his partner, Jeff Stevens, appear on her popular show. Peter quickly discovers that underneath the veneer of warmth and sophistication, is a bitter and vindictive woma ...more

Another wonderful story and that's the case when you're sad to let characters go and kinda want to read all the books all over again :) Good to know there's a follow-up Nick Fallon Investigations with the same characters!

All the guys are amazing as always, their friendship is the main advantage of these series, I think. They're all just so good it's not possible not to love them :)

The whole Anthony and Patricia debacle is too sad :/ How poor Andrew had tried and tried to reach out to his mother

This is the fifth of the portrait series mysteries. In this one Peter & Jeff are up to their ears in publicity after the events of their latest case had ended. One person that the couple was excited to meet and now not so much was Olivia Winters. Olivia is the hottest daytime host and anybody who is anybody loves to appear on her show. Olivia comes off as kind and someone you would love to chat with, but in front of the camera she's a dream off-camera she's a conniving shrew. Peter is chosen ...more

A continuation of the series - I highly recommend reading all of them, in order.

This one does have a little f/m sex but it's still definitely a m/m erotic romance by far. The author is great about coming up with really different plot lines and interesting secondary characters. I find each book very entertaining and this one was no different. Captivating MC's, delightful secondary characters and horrible villains!

Love this series. The characters are interesting though some times cliche. It has humor, it's sexy and although the mysteries were kind of easy to figure out I enjoyed the ride immensely. Again J.P. brings you characters you both love and hate in the form of Olivia Winters, celebrity, talk show host and two-faced tempestuous biotch.
What a detestable woman this Olivia is. Wanted to smack her several times.
What a detestable woman this Patricia is. Wanted...well, you know ;)

Better than the last one but not good like the first three.
I have really enjoyed this series and the related Nick Fallon books. I'd love to see more stories added.

This one makes it onto the somebody-needs-to-be-smacked shelf, but that's because Bowie sure can write some evil women.

J.P. Bowie was born and raised in Aberdeen, Scotland. He wrote his first (unpublished) novel – a science fiction tale of brawny men and brawnier women that made him a little suspect in the eyes of his family for a while.

Leaving home at age eighteen for the bright lights of London, he found himself in the midst of a “diverse and creative crowd” that eventually led him to the performing arts. For th
