This time, it's much more personal...

We’re back with Gideon and Lee, with more of them. More time and togetherness are now under their belts and that is followed through in this newest story of theirs. Lee has his talents and they include Gid, as usual. What’s not so usual is how this story unfolds. I never would have guessed, never would have picked what was behind bonus door number four. In other words, as usual, Ms Fox tells a story only she can conjure.
The case in which Gideon and Lee become involved in this book takes on a different tone, a change in significance, compared to the previous two stories. More than once I found myself utterly stilled by the intensity of it all. Exhilarating and yet bound. Less and less there are things that can come between Gid and Lee. More and more, they are open between each other about what they want, what they have, where they can go. This also means there is more at stake.
Simply, Gid & Lee are two of my favorite characters with whom I’ve been able to share time. They are one of my top couples. Ever. It’s a bonus that they are such a sweet, unintentionally dynamic, hot pairing that keeps growing each time I get some of that time. It’s a treasure that they come to life at the hands of Harper Fox.
Her kind of paranormal is personal. We always learn something about Gideon and Lee, and others, when they’re brought face to face with whatever supernatural forces are trying to take what isn’t theirs. Couple that with the adrenaline, tenderness, fear, humor and love between Gid and Lee, and well… it makes me love them. Beautiful.
This is the type of story by which I can be completely transported. What a blessing. A boon. And it’s all because someone can manipulate language for the good.
If Harper Fox is a new author for you, this Tyack and Frayne series is a great placed to lay down your opening bid. The first is Once Upon A Haunted Moor and book two is Tinsel Fish. All three of these stories are filled with the unpredictable and unexpected. These are two of the many reasons why I love her writing. There is always a moment in the story of ‘No, no, no, this can’t be happening’, but then she takes things in a direction I did not anticipate and it feels right, like I’m sinking down into that most familiar and comfortable place, snuggled, happy. Trust. I trust her with Gideon and Lee. I totally just smiled like a loon when I typed that. :)
