Deadly Slumber (Deadly Mystery #4)
The House of the Dead: a mortuary whose directors are drop dead gorgeous and terminally horny-and one of them up to mischief. Stanley and Tom try to separate the naturally dead from the murdered dead and find themselves awash with coffins-until they come to the one Stanley's name on it.
Deadly Slumber indeed
What for a terrific mix of weird humour, creepy secrets, adult content and romantic mood! By far my favourite book in the series!
What for a witty writing!
What for a lovely epilogue! Balsam for every romantic soul.
I'm not sure how to judge Guy Veryzer for his narrating. On the one hand, he spoke exactly how I imagine funeral people could talk, and how a mystery that has to do with an extraordinary funeral home, its unusual staff and peculiar directors could be vocalize ...more
The two have come a long way in their relationship but both have doubts. Tom has to come to terms with the serious attempt on his life from the last story which has left him horribly scarred. Stanley has to come to terms with the fact that having met a brother he didn't know he had, he had to ...more
The humor is seriously weird, villains are so creepy - incest is my forever squick, atmosphere - grim and macabre, as it should, 'cause funerals.
Dear Stanley. You are and shall remain my forever too stupid to live favorite, but girl. Do count your blessings.
Tom - continue being your precious self.
Dear narrator - please please practice vowels. And words. Speaking, in general.
The keyword in this fourth book is guilt. As Tom tries to live with the after-effects of the fire, Stanley lives his own personal hell for killing his brother and causing (indirectly) Tom's scars. On the other side, if ...more
I loved the page time with Tom and Stanley, but I felt rather bored with all the pretty horny boys stuff.
The mystery was interesting, I just wanted things to get to the point faster. The ending was exciting although I really want to shake Stanley. Can he please stop and think for once lol.
Overall a good read, just a bit too drawn out in places.
(view spoiler)[I also wonder if anyone could possibly be as stupid as Stanley. Stay here, says Tom. OK, says Stanley. Oh, but wait, mystery phone call, go to crematorium. It won't be dangerous... No one is that naive, or maybe they are, but in a fictional story it's t ...more
When I started this series I favored Stanley over Tom. Mainly because Tom was a douche towards Stanley and was the typical straight alpha male cop that despised the gays. As time progressed and they fell in love I started to like Tom more than Stanley because Tom was the grown up of the relationship and gave up practically everything to be Stanley's out partner. His career, friends and now his face. I enjoyed this book like I did the others but I got aggravated at Stanley looking at other ...more
I liked it, though less than the book 3. I especially liked Stanley questioning his relationship with Tom: Is Stanley ready to be in committed relationship? Does Tom really love the real Stanley, including his "fairy" part?
