Publisher's Summary

"I was in free fall the moment we met, and I just keep falling."

Small-town police officer Silas Sloane knows every resident of O'Leary, New York. He's earned the love and respect of its citizens, though living under the small-town microscope grates on him. But though he's good at his job, there's one thing he's not good at: commitments...until Everett.

Widower Everett Maior, O'Leary's newest citizen, came to the small town kicking and screaming. He never wanted to become primary caretaker for his grandfather and has no interest in living the provincial life. Snarky and superstitious, he's proficient at keeping people at a distance...until he lays eyes on Silas.

Strange disappearances are plaguing O'Leary, though, even as Silas and Everett find their growing attraction undeniable. Can they find their way to a future together, even as ghosts from the past threaten to tear them apart?

May I have some MORE Please?

I really enjoyed the story and the characters. The readers Alexander and Iggy did a great job. Sure for a small town in upstate NY it's bit unrealistic that most of the town is gay and so acceptable BUT it is a gay M/M romance so.... Everet and Silas are funny and the town characters are amusing as well. The whole time I was listening I was thinking I hope this is a 5 or 6 book series! Imagine my disappointment When I found out this is the only one! Audible Please get Alex and Iggy to read the next book. And Ms. Archer Please find some new adventures for Ev , Si and all the rest of the O'learians. I want to move there my self and eat some Cal and Ashe's lemon bars.

A comfort listen.

O'leary, sadly doesn't exist in the real world: an accepting kind of place. Fall isn't high literature but rather a comfy robe and good tea or coffee to curl up with and just enjoy.
The angst level is low. The steam just right; driving the tale where necessary but not so much and often that you lose the story in sex.
I hope we see more of the town of O'leary.
The narration rocked.

Another great series to add to my favourites.

Looks like I have found another series to add to my favourites. This story was great. Full of dynamic characters and their complicated relationships. There is a mystery element to the story but it is not the focus. In fact, even though Sy is a policeman we get most of the information about crime in the area from the residents. I loved watching Si and Ev, and several other characters grow with the story and the phases they went through. The dialogue was realistic as were the characters actions.

I listened to this book, narrated by Iggy Thomas and Alexander Cendese. I'm not a fan of dual narrations because I find it difficult to keep track of the characters when they are read by two different readers but I loved the way both narrators were able to move the story along with their pacing. And the emotions being experienced were felt through the words. If you like audio versions of stories this is a good one to listen to.

good idea with a so-so ending

I wanted to like this book but I really did not. First I absolutely did not like two separate narrators it was very confusing. Especially when the characters were supposed to be 30's and the second narrator made them sound like they were 50's. Second I found the main character (Ev) Everett to be very wishy in his decisions. The way he would flip-flop between wanting a relationship with (Sy) Sylis and then running away. If I was Sylis I would have told Ev to keep running he was not ready for a relationship.
Then there was the underlining mystery. Basically why? it felt like a throw away plot to just have something aside from a love story. There is the town sheriff who seems to just let the mystery slide by. A real sheriff would be on a missing person till it was finished especially when it became two missing people. Also I was able to figure out who the killer was in the beginning. The final climax scene with the killer was far too much a tosser as both men declare their love.
Finally like others have said you really need a score card to keep track of all the towns people. There are far too many characters to keep track of. With the two narrators and their different voices it was very difficult to follow who was who.
A re-write would be great because this has a good story in it you just have to find it.

Laugh out Loud

There is angst but mostly laughter and some intrigue - really enjoyed Si and Everett - and Grandpa Hen. Could have been a bit more romance the first 1/2 of the book - but, the reasoning is understandable with Ev losing Adrian such a short time ago. The story of these two is enjoyable and smartly written. The wit and sarcasm is ongoing and fun - Alexander Cendese and Iggy Toma are both excellent at their task and hope to see them in the NEXT O'Leary Book on Audible - Please Please May?!!

great story

I really enjoyed the book.however I listened to it on three different devices and it skipped on all of them. The narrators were great!
