Another wonderful read that happens to be M/M. I’m finding more and more of these that I truly enjoy when just a few months ago I would have run away.. very far away.
Matthew is wound way too tight and needs something to bring him back to life. He’s lost his partner in both life and work to violent crime but until the funeral his co-workers didn’t know that he was even gay. He gets called out to help find a little girl who has gone missing but while at the house interviewing the parents he sees something he truly doesn’t believe in. You see the little girl’s ghost guides him to her body. He makes the mistake of letting his superiors know what he sees and is promptly put on leave. I felt for him because not only is he still dealing with the death of his love but the repercussions of coming out when a cop. He’s a great guy and when he finally allows himself to live and feel again it was wonderful to see. I loved how he doesn’t believe in ghosts but when confronted by both the little girl and Keirnan he finally starts to understand maybe everything isn’t what shows on the surface that we can touch and see but that there is something else there we just can’t explain.
Kiernan was fun to get to know. He really knows how to push people’s buttons and loves to see people squirm when confronted with things that they can’t see or touch. He is deeper than people give him credit for and really has a great heart. He’s doing what he loves but has been burned many times in the past for loving the wrong people. He and his sister are all alone in the world even though their parents are still alive. I’m happy he had her to support him growing up but I loved watching he and Matt fall for one another. I think this relationship will allow both of them to have something they need at a primal level plus give his sister the chance to live her own life.
The mystery in this was well written and kept me guessing until the reveal. I’m glad that NetGalley.com and Carina Press were nice enough to let me read this in exchange for my honest review.
