“Readers of my first series kept asking when I would bring back Joshua Thornton,” Carr explained. “However, they are going to find that single father Joshua Thornton is not in the same place since we left him in A Reunion to Die For. His children are grown. He’s more independent, and he’s ready for some romance and adventure. That’s where Cameron Gates comes in.”
With that, Joshua Thornton and Cameron Gates strike out to explore the mysteries of both murder and love!
Okay, I admit it. This one throw me for a while. I actually stopped reading it when I thought that both halves of the couple were male. You know, Joshua and Cameron. Well, in Australia I don’t see Cameron used much as a girl’s name and it took my wife to remind of that little-known actor Cameron Diaz. After a little research, I realised that Cameron can indeed be a girl’s name!!!
With that sorted out, I got on to reading this enjoyable little mystery. There is a real connection between the two main characters that even I found easy to enjoy and a lot of other wacky and fun people along the way. Some of them you will like and some are destined to be hated, but you will end up like me wanting to know just a little more about them.
This book disappears all too quickly with lots of twists and turns on the way. A great way to pass an afternoon if you like murder mystery. Given that this has a tagline of ‘Lovers in Crime’, I assume we are going to see more of this couple. I know I will be looking for them.
