Blurb: Halloween is Beau Bissonet’s favorite holiday, from carving pumpkins to decorating his yard to donning a costume and scaring the neighborhood kids. But this year his Halloween is about to take a different turn, one that will challenge his skills as a detective and his commitment to his partner in work and love.
A year since Beau and Tollison solved The Royal Street Heist, found love, and formed Bissonet & Cruz Investigations, they are thriving personally and professionally. That is until Tollison’s ex, Bastien Andros, shows up out of the blue. Naturally, Beau’s suspicious, but two days after Bastien’s arrival, he goes missing, and Tollison worries his past may catch up to him.
A mysterious package makes clear who has Bastien and what’s at stake. With both Bastien and Beau’s lives now at risk, Tollison has only one option: travel to Zurich, Switzerland, secure and deliver the ransom, keep both men safe, and stay true to himself at the same time.
Review: This is book two in the Bissonet & Cruz Investigations series. Beau and Tollison have opened their business; it’s almost Halloween, Beau’s favorite holiday. Beau is excited and things are going well for the two men until Tollison’s ex comes back in the picture. Beau’s trust issues are put to the test as result of Tollison’s ex.
Bastien, Tollison’s ex is kidnapped and the investigative team rush to find out why and rescue him. Action packed, edge of your seat read. The mystery was well written and had the right amount of suspense and investigation to leave me waiting for more as the story progressed.
Beau and Tollison heat up the pages and work well together throughout. I really liked this story as it had all the right elements for a great mystery. It keeps the reader engaged while providing enough information to have them wanting more.
Fantastic addition and read to the series.
