You already know I like Josh Lanyon. I love his writing. Non pretentious, a bit sad but always ringing true.
This one is no different. Although the story is set in the 1940’s in an America at war, the mystery is really fun, the MC’s make your heart stutter and the setting is beautiful.
I want more of Lt. Matt Spain and Nathan Doyle. I checked out Mr. Lanyon’s website and a second book called Shadow on the Sun is coming, but it’s not out yet and there’s no date mentioned. I usually don’t go for romances that are set in wartime, any wartime for that matter, but I loved this one.
The chemistry between the two MC’s is amazing. Two guys, a cop and a journalist, both wounded in war but strong and courageous, help each other out to solve a murder. Being gay in 1940 is difficult at best, if not almost impossible. I love how their relationship evolves and I can’t wait for the next one.
Some sex scenes, not too graphic but not for young eyes.
