This is definitely better written than most books of this genre. The mystery was easy to solve, though I applaud the writer for unraveling it the way he did–he didn’t introduce the suspect until midway through, and didn’t let the real reason show up until the end, so when he did it, it was a bit obvious even with the curveballs he tried to throw. Or maybe that’s just me, I pick up context clues quickly and there aren’t a lot of books that surprise me.
It’s an all right read compared to most books, and it’s pretty good/very good compared to most LGBT books. The best thing about this is the ‘mystery’ took precedence over the romance.
