About this ebook

LGBT Cozy Romance Mystery

Dates can simply be murder.

After barely surviving a terrifying stalker, Kip is reexamining his life choices. There’s nothing like almost dying to make you take stock of things.

One bright spot is that the ever maddening Merrick Dawson has stopped following him around picking on him. Merrick has begun dating Peter Harris, who by all accounts is a wonderful guy. Peter is nice. He’s handsome. He’s downright annoyingly perfect.

When Kip is asked out on a romantic sunset cruise by one of Pearl Cove’s most eligible bachelors, he decides he has nothing to lose. Unless he wants to spend the rest of his days alone, he needs to be proactive about finding love.

But when Kip shows up for the cruise, instead of champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries, he finds his date dead.

This is book two in my Kip O'Connor M/M Cozy Mystery series. Each book has a cozy feel to it and there is a strong romantic storyline in each book. No on-page steam but some mild violence.

Loved This One !! . . . Valentine’s Day is approaching and Kip has no date. Merrick Dawson, Kip’s older brother Thomas’ best friend, is still with Peter Harris, so there is no hope there. Then he gets a call from Allister Green asking him to join him on a date for a Valentine’s Day sunset cruise on his 47-foot yacht. After stammering in surprise, Kip accepts. Merrick and Peter walked up to them and Merrick didn’t seem happy when Allister told him he and Kip were going on a date. Actually Kip wasn’t planning on telling anyone in case it was a prank. And to his surprise, Merrick and Peter were there to meet Kip’s brother too! Tom knew Kip wouldn’t have come with Merrick there. As soon as he could, he pretended to get a text that he had to open his business the next morning and had to leave now to get some sleep. No one believed him. Kip attended a Bingo game for charity. Merrick was also there and sat next to him. When the lights in the building went out, the two of them went to the dark basement to check the breakers. When they went back upstairs, someone had stolen the charity money. Kip drove his and Merrick’s moms home, then took Spot for a walk. A van sort of followed him, and when he stopped so it would pass, it was a florist van. Who made nighttime flower deliveries? The van suddenly accelerated and disappeared down the street. The next evening was the big date with Allister. He sent a huge bouquet of flowers to Kip. Kip dressed and went to the dock, hardly noticing the guy in the gray hoodie that brushed past him as Kip headed to the yacht. He was handed a glass of champagne and told to go downstairs where Allister was waiting for him. But no one was there. He made his way to another door, the master suite, rose petals on the bed’s sheets. As he rounded the bed, Allister was face-down, his hair matted with blood. He started CPR, but Allister was dead. This was another terrific mystery by this author. With multiple things going on, it was difficult for the reader to pick out the most significant one to solve! The characters are so well described and we see each one’s personality and how it fits in the story line. Well-paced and action-packed, this mystery will keep the reader fully invested in the story and wondering who the killer could be. Was it the guy in the hoodie? Was he the same guy in the van following Kip? How would someone have gotten onto the yacht with Selena and the Captain on board? Grab your copy and find out what’s going on.
