Everything that I love about her works is here - dry humor, observations about human nature that actually make sense. The adult men who actually *act* like ones and who do not become "plot zombies" ;). I loved for example that no matter how much Peter wanted to smack Shamus, he decided that this is what losers do. I wish more characters in m/m stories actually behaved their age. And what I also liked that even in comparison to book four Peter seemed to learn a lesson about rushing out alone. I really really like when the character grows throughout the series like that.
Mystery starts like relatively "lite" but turns out to be quite dangerous and actions of the villain really made sense too.
For those of you who care there is I would say one and a half unexplicit sex scene. But if you like me have read previous books by this writer, you know already that she pays attention to her characters and plot and sex is just a bit of icing on the cake. Exactly the way I love it.
The last two of the books, "One Man's Treasure" and "Birds of a Feather," seem to take us to the end of our relationship with Peter Fontaine and Nick Olson. As in the rest of the series, there are themes to each book. "Treasure" is the vaguest of the themes, but it seems to deal with the idea of what is valuable to an individual, what drives him or her. The trash/treasure dichotomy is the energizer. In "Birds," there is literally an issue of birds, but the theme of the book is really about how people are like/unlike each other.
And all that makes sense because, as I figured out pretty quickly here, none of these books is really about the plot. The mysteries are all sort of fun - and all of them involve the quirky community of artists in Bellingham, Washington, "the city of Subdued Excitement." (Snicker) What the mysteries are really there for is to create a backdrop for us to study the evolving relationship between stoic ex-army Nick; and impulsive, nosy journalist Peter.
Throughout the series, we get to know a wide range of quirky secondary characters - some of them, like Peter's friend Evangeline, and Bradley, the son of Nick's late lover Walter, appear recurringly. Evangeline is a bright note of flaky support; Bradley is a dark point of anger and bitterness. These characters amplify what we know about the two men and how they grow to understand each other. I think I'd love living in Bellingham if these guys were friends.Read more ›

What's a wedding without a little murder and mayhem? At least in Peter's world that adage is likely to be true. Read morePublished on September 16, 2013 by LAS Reviewer
