Detective Matthew Bennett doesn't believe in ghosts. So when the spirit of a murdered child leads him to her body, he's shaken to the core - and taken off the case. Unable to explain his vision, or to let go of the investigation, Matthew turns to renowned medium Kiernan Fitzpatrick. Though he has doubts about Kiernan's claims to communicate with the dead, Matt is nevertheless drawn to the handsome psychic, who awakens feelings he thought were long-buried.
Haunted by the lingering spirit of the little girl, Kiernan is compelled to aid in the search for her killer. The chance to get closer to the enigmatic Matt is an unexpected bonus. Although Kiernan's been betrayed by people who turned out to be more interested in his fame than in himself, with Matt he's willing to risk his heart. As the two men grow closer, Kiernan helps Matt rediscover that life offers no guarantees - but love offers a reason to believe....

It was very hard to take a break from listening to this excellent story. Not only are the intimate scenes hot and fulfilling, but there is actually an exciting, intriguing and mysterious thriller story as well... yes a STORY! I enjoyed it even more because of this. But lets not forget, the sex scenes are everything you could hope for! Because the characters are carefully built up to this point, it is even more of a pay off.
This was a book filled to the brim with suspense; I did not know what to expect next. Jack LeFleur made the characters come to life. I highly recomend this audiobook!
A really good audibook. Excellent book to start the month with!
This book starts of with Detective Matthew Bennett getting a missing child call. After the police has a taken a look around, Matt hears a little girl. He follows her voice and eventually her to discover her body and is quickly placed on administrative leave by his superiors. They also order him to see the department psychologist because they think he is losing it.
See, 15 months ago, Matt lost his work partner of 3 years, who also was his romantic partner. He never took time off to properly grief, so Matt's vision has to be the grief he is feeling. Only, Matt's sister in law and best friend Sheila thinks supernatural things occur and that he shouldn't dismiss what happened to him as crazy business. She takes him to see renowned medium Kiernan Fitzpatrick and the two of them set off to solve the mystery of why the dead girl Abby chose to appear to Matt AND who hurt this little girl. It was definitely off the record as Matt was on leave and the medium is not part of the police department.
The subject was a sad murder, but solving it became a form of catharsis for both Matt and Kiernan. Damage from the past has kept them from truly connecting with others, but their sisters (Shiela and Aidan) were the pillars that kept the guys erect.
I love the way the story was written. even though it wasn't a love story, there was revelation and justice and love in this story. It kept me interested from page one until the end and I felt very satisfied at the conclusion. I would love a sequel to this one!
Among the best!
I do not compare one novel with another. If the writing isn't unique, it isn't a great read, in my book.
Jack LeFleur has a fabulous voice, and his oral interpretation is among the best. I think I'm in love.
The title is the author's call, not mine, and I would not even attempt to second-guess the author.
This one kept me listening from beginning to end. Then I read it a second time.
i would rank this in the clear top tier of male/male romances. The characters are likeable enough without being perfect, and there is an actual plot around which the romance grows. I admit I prefer straight-forward books (suspense, historical, mysteries, whatnot) that have a male/male relationship rather than romances with a touch of a plot.
So this one really was my cup of tea.
The writing is of good quality and the narration was very well done too, as Jack LeFleur always professionally delivers.
I didn't read the print version. However, I .love audio books so I would probably like the audio book better.
It is a paranormal book. I haven't read another book like this. I liked the character Kiernan a lot. Matt the cop seemed very angry and needed to be handled so carefully!
I really enjoyed the paranormal aspect and it was believable.
I thought the narrator did a good job.
The narrator, OMG what a voice!! This was a wonderful love story of two broken hearts finding each other. Woven into it was a great suspense mystery. Loved everything about it and would love another with these characters. It also has one of the hawtest romance encounters I've heard in a while. The narrator is superb!!
Great storyline and narration! Was sucked into the story immediately.
Several, but it was towards the end when it was revealed who done it. Was totally surprised and why!
Did an excellent job of bringing the characters to life.
No, since I listen to audio while I commute.
I did have trouble leaving my car to go in to work and the same to go in my home.
One of those that if I were reading it would keep me up all night.
Very compelling story to listen too.
At the very top! I was very into the story found it hard to stop listening .
The little girl . She was very sweet when she would show up
Yea he did very well
Refreshing, intriguing and romantic.
What I enjoyed most about the storyline was that you could virtually replace the two main characters with male and female; two females; or interracial couple. The point being that LOVE was the ultimate connection and the growth of their love for one another AND the love story was told in unison with a murder mystery. A nice blend the story and characters.
Matthew's voice was a little to mature/older gentlemen sounding for the character.
Don't worrry no spoilers here...I did both -CRY @ the funeral...how touching with the flag and LAUGH the sister and sister-in-law were a hoot!
If you shy away from lovemaking m/m you may not enjoy this book but if you are open to LOVE for all genders, and a mystery to boot -- I BELIEVE you will enjoy listening to this story.
The first gay-murder-mystery/paranormal book I've ever come across and it was great! Narrator does a super job. I thought the "reveal" of who the murderer is could have been done better - they find out who it is and then spend another couple of hours trying to frame them, and the loose-ends are all quickly tied up a far too easily in time for the end - a cliff-hanger ending could have been better. Still I really enjoyed it!
