This is a stand alone novel, however it's so good that you really owe it to yourself to read them all. I'm already looking forward to the next book in the series. The author is on my must read authors' list, and, if you're a fan of the genre, should probably be on yours as well.
I purchased The Beachcomber Test by Stephanie Queen and this review was given freely.
Sometimes flirty and sometimes serious one liners pepper the banter between Shana and Dane providing both humorous and relief to the serious murder/sting operation and the steamy romance contained in this novella.
Dane and Shana had their work cut out for them. Especially Dane since he had to pass Shana’s tests while investigating the murder. I loved the way this pair worked so well together. They were able to put their personal relationship aside and focus on the case. Other than both often thinking they would like to be having have sex with the other.
I liked the characters, especially Shana and Dane. They both had exceptional training before starting their investigation business. Shana had been a Scotland Yard detective and Dane was ex-special ops. Their police friend, Cap, was a big help in the investigation, as always. It was cute how Gable wanted to help with the investigation. I liked him and how Dane tried to make him feel important by giving him jobs to do. While this was a really good mystery, it was emotional, too. There was humour, sadness and tension. I felt bad for Penny. She was the wife of the cheater/murdered man. She learned a lot of things she didn’t want to know.
It was odd seeing Dane so unsure of himself in this book. He was worried that he wouldn’t pass Shana’s tests. He didn’t want to lose her. This caused her to always on his mind and thinking about how hot Shana was and how he wanted to have sex with her. It got tiresome hearing this.
I loved this book and highly recommend it. If you like mysteries with a little romance, you’ll like Beachcomber Test.

Beachcomber Test is the seventh book in the Beachcomber Investigations series by
Stephanie Queen. It is a fantastic story full of intrigue, suspense, a little drama, some tension and of course, romance. This story could be read as a standalone, but I recommend reading all the other books to get a better understanding of these characters, their backstories and everything they’ve been through to get them to this point. The other books are really great and will enhance your reading experience of this story.
You may think that by being the seventh book in a series, that maybe the series/stories may be becoming a little lackluster or losing some of their intensity- but that is not the case here at all. Ms. Queen brings her A game yet again and gives us a bit of a different look at Dane and Shana, and the investigation they’re pulled into.
These two find their personal relationship tested, with things that have come to a head in this book, they love each other but Shana isn’t sure that Dane can really give all of himself. She is testing him, and he’s determined to prove himself to her.
On a professional level, they have taken on a divorce case that should be a simple open and shut investigation, but as we have come to expect from Ms. Queen and these characters, nothing is ever that simple. They quickly find themselves in a situation they weren’t expecting and are clamoring to get ahead of it all.
Another first-rate story from Ms. Queen. I never tire of her stories, she manages to pull me in each and every time with her addictive plots and descriptive style. Her attention to detail makes her stories come to life in a very realistic and believable way. Her characters are complex, a little quirky and entirely endearing. Ms. Queen always delivers, and this book is no exception!
Bring on the next book!
Thank you, Ms. Queen!
