I've enjoyed everything I have read by Celia Aaron, and this time was no different. What was different was what I've come to expect from her. The romance was there, but I felt like it was not the main focus, and even though the tiny moments I got were deliciously hot and sweet, they left me wanting more. I know this was a slow burn romance but one thing is that, and other is to put it in the back seat.
Whit this, I'm not saying I didn't enjoy the story because I certainly did. The mystery surrounding the characters and the gossip had me on the edge of my seat, and of course, Porter. He had me laughing so hard. He was the kind of character that you know is an id!øt, but you can't stop loving him anyway. So yeah, I can't wait to read his book.
Written in a dual POV, The Elder is a story that will engage readers with suspense and a touch of romance as it deals with murder, secrets, lies, and family making it a perfect choice for those looking for a mystery/suspense read with a hint of romance.
The characters in the book were all written so well, you get a feel for each one of them, and I really hope she'll write another book for some of them! I fell in love with the whole cast of characters!
Benton and Arabella were the two main characters, and we got a lovely slow burn of a romance with them. They started out antagonistic and sniping, but it didn't take long for them to start appreciating the other. Porter and Logan were two of the supporting characters that I just loved! They were great, hating on each other, sniping at each other, but still able to work together. I could see a bromance develop there in the next book, if she'll give us one!
As you can probably tell, I loved this book! There was humor and sarcasm, suspense and mystery, and a slow burning sweet & sexy romance. I think everyone should go buy this book! Just don't start reading it at bedtime if you want to actually sleep!!
“You can’t just walk into my life and fit, just like I couldn’t do that to yours. We are pieces to entirely different puzzles.”
Sherlock Holmes meet Arabella Matthews. She’s a detective for her local police department in Azalaea, Mississippi, where they rarely see much action. Benton King is a high-powered attorney in the same small town. But small town occupancy is where their similarities end. He’s from money, she has fought for all she has. He is future sure and secure, she is day-by-day reliant. Neither of their futures is what they believe when things start happening in their small town.
The Elder was a suspenseful “who done it” novel that kept us thinking with the introduction of every small-town person. The setting gave it that Mayberry kind of feel, but the story’s actions catapulted it into a completely different place. As is generally expected in novels by this author, words were thoughtfully crafted to stealthily trickle in pieces and parts of an intricately woven plot. I was on constant alert and the gears in my brain were pumping out some serious smoke as I attempted to connect all of the dots, make the right associations, and solve the riddle before Author Celia Aaron revealed it.
Just as the overall story was a soft-paced intent to thrill, so were the developments amongst our characters. I loved meeting the King brothers. Both had their own distinct charm and swagger. But, Benton stole the show in this one. He was soft and hard, intense and tender. The perfect compliment to Arabella’s confident and protective nature. Their romance evolved just as problems threatened to overwhelm.
Distinct in its pace and storyline, The Elder was a hold your breath, keep your eyes wide open novel. Another great addition to this author's writing repertoire.
