3.5 stars. Good gay mystery in which Tom and Scott go to rural Georgia after Scott's dad has a heart attack. They are not at all prepared for the bigotry and hatred they encounter.
From my library's summary of the book:

A baseball player publicly announces his homosexuality, provoking the ire of his hometown in Georgia and an altercation with the sheriff. When the sheriff is murdered, suspicion falls on the player and his boyfriend, and the two must find the murderer.

It's nice to read a "run-of-the-mill" murder mystery where the main characters (and some of the supporting ones, too) are gay.

Tom and Scott head to Scott's hometown to see his sick father. The South is not welcoming to their relationship. While there someone is killed and Tom is suspected. Tom works to clear his name all the while fighting bigots, a lunatic, and hatred from some of Scott's family. This author captures the bigotry and Southern mannerisms to a tee. I like this story can't wait to read the next story in the series.
