Description

For the first time in a long while, Emery Hazard’s life is good. His new business as a private detective is taking off. Things are good at home. He loves his boyfriend, John-Henry Somerset; he loves their daughter. He might even love the new friends they’ve found. There’s only one problem: Somers has been talking about marriage. 

When a former colleague, Walter Hoffmeister, comes to Hazard and hires him to look into a series of anonymous death threats, Hazard eagerly jumps on the distraction. Hoffmeister might be a jerk, but he’s a paying jerk, and Hazard isn’t convinced the threats are serious. 

Until, that is, Hoffmeister is almost gunned down on Hazard’s doorstep. As Hazard investigates more deeply, he learns that more than one person in Wahredua has a reason to wish Hoffmeister dead. His search takes him to the Ozark Volunteers, reincarnated as the Bright Lights movement, but it also leads him into a sanctuary of radical Christianity. Meanwhile, an antifa activist has arrived in town, calling for Hoffmeister’s death and threatening total war with the Bright Lights. 

As Hazard continues to look for answers, he becomes a target, too - and not just because he’s helping Hoffmeister. The Keeper of Bees is still at large, and the killer hasn’t lost interest in Emery Hazard. Not yet. Not, Hazard begins to suspect, until the Keeper has taken everything Hazard holds dear.

Hazard + Somerset: easiest read of series

Another amazing book in this wonderful series. This one makes you want to jump to the next right now!! Kind of like at the end of book 3 in the previous series. This one to me is the most stable and not so intense in what is happening. There are still things going on and mysteries to be solved. This one was just easier. At times I am not sure what to think of Somers’ new partner Dulac, but by the end of this one, I think he is great!! Also, Hazard and Somers’ relationship is kinda on the rocks a lot in this one but by the end I believe they have really found their footing in both their personal and professional lives. Another stellar performance by Tristan James on the narration. I cannot see what these men get up to next!!

So good, this series does not disappoint.

The series arc has just kept the momentum going so well. Every book has been enjoyable. Police brutality felt a little different than previous books, less focus on the crime. More page time interaction between John and Emery. The teasing banter of Somerset and Emerys frosty demeaner are just fun. like a tennis match at times. Their game of tit for tat trading of antagonistic remarks has turned into divine foreplay.
I seriously laughed out loud a couple of times.
Not sure yet what to make of Gray Dulac, he is equal parts very annoying and pretty darn funny.
Loved the ending of this book, I hope there is more humour in the next books.

I've never loved them more!

Somers might be my favorite person in the world. And even though Hazard sometimes drives me nuts, I love him too. Together they just work and there was so much sexual tension and drama in this one that I found myself half laughing/ half turned on for the majority of the book. I was enjoying the drama that Dulac brought to the story so much that I was a little bummed he got sidelined a bit with a guy. Oh well though, just looking for a little guilty pleasure drama just for once.

Great World and Character Building, but Skimpy on the Plot

Be forewarned, this selection had a lot more friction between the two main characters than many of the others. Hazard and Somerset are very nasty to one another.

As usual, I continue to be disappointed by John Henry Somerset. He’s just not very like-able to me. Somers constantly picks fights with Hazard throughout this entire book, even when he knows that he shouldn’t. He just has to push all of Hazards buttons simply because he’s a spoiled brat used to having things his way.

It’s so strange to me that after only ten months of actually being together that Somers wants to basically force Hazard into marriage. Like, simmer down you want the guy you used to bully and pushed down the stairs to make a lifelong commitment after only 10 months??

The “cases” have started to get a little muddy for me. It almost seems like Gregory Ashe is more focused on putting the characters in place for what’s going to happen next and hasn’t dedicated much time to what is happening with the plot or the central mystery of the novel. It felt like an afterthought.

As usual, Tristan James was impeccable. His “female” voice makes me chuckle.

I gave it a four overall because the character building is excellent (even if o personally don’t like Somers) the peripheral characters are very unique in their own way. Dulac is sort of growing on me, but I shudder to think what direction he is going to cause Somers to go in (or hazard for that matter). If it’s going where I think it’s going, I will be disappointed.

Another winner

I was given a free copy of this audiobook in return for an honest review.

I love that this series has such complicated characters and multi levels of drama and intrigue. It has a great balance of mystery and romance. In this book Hazard’ latest client is a nightmare, racist, homophobe. But he needs help and Hazard steps up. I also love the way GA weaves in relevant social issues within the cast of characters; including a “holier than thou” trans pastor.

This story is a rollercoaster ride and focuses more on the relationship than the first book in this series. It is of course woven around a mystery and I think some clues to the over arching mystery. But of course I can’t really tell because GA is a tricky guy. To say Hazard starts his new PI business with unresolved issues is an understatement. The events in the first series keep cropping up. He goes from treating Somerset like crap to confessing undying love; it gives me whiplash. Somerset wants more from the relationship, but Hazard is resistant for Hazard-like reasons. So of course Somerset does stupid things to push Hazard’s buttons.

Like I said, a roller coaster. But in the end, I enjoyed the ride and the “surprise” ending that just makes me anxious for the next book, job well done! As a side note, before this book I hated Somerset’s new partner; he just isn’t right on so many levels. But he grows a little in this book and really made me laugh on several occasions. However, at this point I don’t trust GA not to spring some kind of surprise about him, so I’m keeping my eye on him.

Part of my change of heart about Somerset’s partner is the masterful job Tristan James does in performing his character. He does a great job with all the guys, but he does particularly well with that guy. He gets all the inflections dead on. The conversation about “threesomes” and “foursomes” had me laughing out loud. He can just convey so much feeling through his voice that I just got wrapped up in the story. On to Book Three!

Gets Better and Better

This series is so good and the audio makes it even better. Emery and John-Henry have their ups and downs and I'm invested every step of the way. As I've come to expect with this series, the mystery and suspense is very well done. And the overarching mystery across the books continues to tantalize as it slowly unfolds. Looking forward to the next audio!!
