More fiction than romance, it's the first book by Mark Richard Zubro I've read.

I struggled to finish this one. The language was very stilted. "Your nephew was more recalcitrant than the most hardened gangbanger." "I hate to belabor the obvious." Who talks like this?? Also, there were so many characters introduced that I lost track of who was who at times and when the killer was revealed, I'd forgotten who the person was. I liked the premise of this book and I was hoping I'd enjoy it enough to read other books in the series, but I think I'm one and done with Tom and Scott. ...more

By the time the murderer was revealed, I only vaguely remembered him (them, actually), from earlier in the book, so it wasn't the shocker of an ending it might have been. But, I continue to enjoy both Zubro series, and am about to start on his book, SCHOOLED IN MURDER.

This was one of the worst books I have ever read! Childish prose, ridiculous plot, I hated it!

Good gay mystery which starts with Tom and Scott's getting married. Too bad Tom finds a body in the bathroom at the reception.
