The mystery was really not that big a part of the story. There was no real investigation, in spite of Jamie's supposed experience as a journalist. He did nothing that really seemed investigative. Felix did a bunch of surveillance but went nowhere with it. So, much of the story felt dragged out. There were conversations, some initial antagonism between the MC's and time spent with the Army buddies. Then of course they fell into bed but at least it wasn't right away. It seemed more like a lot of filler material between Jamie and Felix meeting until it finally reached a climactic part. It wasn't badly paced, as I was easily able to stick with reading it. There was also a nice HEA ending. Not exciting, not bad, just not as plot driven as I expected of a mystery.
5 mysterious stars!! This book will leave you on the edge of your seat, needing answers!!! So insanely good!
Jamie is in search of his missing brother. He’s gotten some information from the police saying that his brother Michael drowned, but Jamie knows his brother better than that. And when he shows up to Michael’s house and finds a stranger there, his suspicions deepen. Felix has been released from the British Army, still dealing with that he spends his time looking up an old friend Karl, knowing he can catch him in some sort of scheme. He’s convinced that Karl had something to do with Michael’s disappearance, he’s doing everything to prove that. Jamie and Felix start to work together to figure out what happened to Michael, and the chemistry between these two is undeniable. It’s electric. And just as they are about to discover the heat between themselves, they find danger lurking around the corner.
Wow, what an intense book!! I love a good twisted book and this one was definitely it!! It was sexy in all the right parts and twisted in all the others! It will keep you guessing at every turn and then gasping for more in the others! This book is an absolute must read!!

So, putting Annabelle Jacobs out of her misery………I’m delighted to say……. I loved it! You can breathe out now, Annabelle! A great story that is as intriguing as it is hot. First Annabelle got the setting perfectly described. Lonely cottages on the windswept cliffs of Cornwall. Holiday makers who throw caution to the wind, disregard the warning signs and advice from the coast guard and then it’s no wonder people go missing and believe me they all to often do, tragically. What happens? The lucky ones get rescued. Others are reported missing first of all and then invariably found dead, washed up on a beach six miles down the coast. Yes, as beautiful as the Cornish coast is, it’s also as dangerous. At least families who have lost loved ones can get closure if the bodies are found, but what about the ones who are not? A living nightmare. Missing presumed dead the verdict.
It is in this nightmare hell that Jamie travels to Cornwall to pack up his brother’s belongings and then go back home to Nottingham. His and his parent’s lives will never be the same again. Jamie’s brother Michael is missing presumed dead. He is still mourning, trying to accept the situation but again closure is difficult when there's no conclusive evidence that someone is dead.Read more ›
Jamie meets Felix Bergstrom, caretaker for Michael's cottage and a former British Army soldier. Felix has his suspicions about a recent emigree to the Cornwall coast: Karl Weston, an old army acquaintance and millionaire businessman. Felix believes that Weston may have had a hand in the death of their mutual friend, Jason, less than a year ago. Felix has been maintaining an unofficial surveillance on Weston over the last several weeks, but never noticed Weston and Michael interacting. Like the police, he believes that Michael drowned.
Jamie doesn't trust Felix--not after he finds him in the cottage rummaging through Michael's belongings. He can tell Felix is holding back information about Weston, and--because he's grasping for any information about Michael--that burns. Felix does have some sympathy, and is encouraged by his friends to confess all he knows about Weston, however little it helps Jamie.
During the several days they spend together in close proximity, Jamie and Felix sense an attraction. Jamie is wracked by grief, and Felix is a willing outlet for that sorrow and frustration. I liked how well they got on, once they began...Read more ›
