More About the Author
I've long had a personal blog at markmcnease.com, which has gotten much quieter these days since I've been devoted to writing the Kyle Callahan Mysteries, as well as launching and maintaining a website for LGBTQ people over 50, lgbtSr.org, for the past four years (as of April, 2015). But the blog is still there, with my day to day life for anyone interested.
In 2014 I conceived, co-edited and published an anthology of LGBTQ writers over 50, Outer Voices Inner Lives, that was selected as a Lambda Literary Award Finalist in the anthology category.
On the home front, I was born into a very large family in Mississippi (the last of nine children) and placed for adoption at the age of two. I was promptly scooped up and relocated to Elkhart, Indiana, where I came out as a gay teenager in 1974. I have always lived out and honestly and can't really imagine existing any other way.
In 2006 I met my partner Frank Murray, whom I married in August, 2013. We live in Manhattan with three cats. We also have a house in Kingwood Township, New Jersey, about 20 minutes from New Hope, Pennsylvania, where we hope to relocate someday.

Hmmm....how to start this. I guess the best way is to say that I was a little surprised. Maybe I'm a little "old" or dense, but I totally missed that the book was gay/lesbian, so that was quite a shock, however I won it so....I read it. Now let's get to the review.
The reason for the missing star is only because it isn't a book that I'll be thinking about for a while, or would read again. A book must meet at least one of these requirements in order to earn 5 stars.
I did enjoy the book for the most part. I wish (like another reviewer) that there had more of the murder/mystery/suspense and less of what I call "filler material". The storyline was good, loved the setting, the characters were well developed. I have to admit that I usually have a pretty good idea who the murderer is about halfway into the book. Not this one. I was really surprised. Never saw it coming.
Edit: I forgot to mention that I tend to read older authors because I've had enough sexual experiences and violence in my life that I don't need to experience either vicariously. While the story included couples who loved each other there were no graphic descriptions of either sex or violence. People made love and murdered with a modicum of taste.
I have pre-ordered the new book to see how the author's style has progressed.
