The road back to bestsellerdom can be deadly. Holmes & Moriarity, Book 1 Thanks to an elderly spinster sleuth and her ingenious cat, Christopher Holmes has enjoyed a celebrated career as a bestselling mystery writer. Until now. Sales are down and his new editor is allergic to geriatric gumshoes. On the advice of his agent, he reinvents his fortyish, frumpy, recently dumped self into the sleek, sexy image of a literary lion, and heads for a Northern California writers conference to try and resurrect his career. A career nearly as dead as the body he stumbles over in the woods. In a weirdly déjà vu replay of one of his own novels, he finds himself stranded in an isolated lodge full of frightened women—and not a lawman in sight. Except for J.X. Moriarity, former cop and bestselling novelist. The man with whom he shared a one-night stand—okay, maybe three—long ago. The man who wants to arrest him for murder. A ruthless, stalking killer, or a hot, handsome ex-lover. Which poses the greater danger? It’s elementary, my dear Holmes!

For some reason, I thought I would enjoy this this a bit more. I like it and it was ok, but, for me, the story was all over the place. The mystery was too much, too many possible culprits and you lose interest after a while. The "love story" wasn't as interesting, so incomplete. We know somethin...
Ugh, I hate that cover. I hate it so much that when I was writing and setting up this review I went back to see if there was an alternate cover to choose. I hate the idea that readers are going to make the same mistake I did by passing up this book only because the cover is so cheesy. Please don'...
Weird. I read this maybe a year and half ago. Didn't rate or review it and my memory of it was - meh. But a friend just mentioned how much she enjoyed it and I decided to re-read it and see why I hadn't liked it. I couldn't tell you because this time around, I found it a ton of fun. The only thing I...
Meh. Bastante mediocre en varios de sus aspectos escenciales, lo cual es una pena porque se supone que deberían ser los pilares del libro. Habiendo tantos mejores exponentes dentro de los thrillers, la novela negra, las historias de misterio, el romance y el género m/m este libro no pasa de las 2 es...
