I found this ebook to be well edited, with a well thought out plot and believeable characters.
The author has a good grasp of her primary and secondary characters. She has the gift of being able to show what her characters are like instead of the endless boring internl monologue/explaining that so many authors in this genre do. The level of self awareness was impressive and not over done. That was the only obvious clue that the author is a woman.
There were no overblown agravating emotional scenes that make these books nothing more than 'chicks with dicks' fare. This author expertly uses male banter realistically to move plot and subplots along quickly. The end of the murder case was an uneven set of events that hinted at being taken over (badly) by the lawyers. The whole issue of what this criminal trial would look like is easily a messy book all by itsself. A more experienced writer could have cleared this up without the lawyers.
The author realistically describes the daily routines of the MC's with enough quirks to give real insight into their characters. She also wisely reveals that that most of the main gay character's strongest relationships are with straight people, just like the real world.
Overall a great read and recommendation worthy of 4.5 stars!
Paul has another longtime friend in Annie. Both Tim and Annie want to see Paul be happy and get back in the dating mode. When he does, finally, he meets a strange, shy and nervous David Haygood, who leaves Paul with mixed emotions and decisions to make. Annie also gets Paul back in touch with Owen, whom he once dated, but at that time, what Paul wanted and what Owen wanted in life were too different. But, Owen is an eye-opener; he seems to have grown up and has a better grasp on life than Paul.
With all the craziness in Paul’s personal life, there’s also the murder of two young teens of different ethnicities who come from opposite sides of the track. Tim and Paul are put through their paces in their investigation, what with so many questions and suspects to track down to solve these mysterious murders.
Good Boys was a first time read for me by Keelan Ellis, and I have to say this was a very good and entertaining start to the Solomon Mysteries series. Paul is not a big, bad detective; he just does what he does best—solves crimes. He’s good at his job, but he’s somewhat naive in starting his personal life over again. One thing that really stands out with Paul, though, is that no matter what he sees on the job, he still wants to believe there’s good in everyone. I was also impressed with how the author showed how Tim and Paul worked really well as a team in getting to heart of the crime.
This storyline also has a lot to do with life and timing. Paul, Tim, Anne, Andy, and Owen all have something that’s changed in their lives, taking took them down different life paths. As for the mystery, the plot was creative, and I couldn’t even begin to guess what the outcome would be. I’d seen it going in a different direction, but I was wrong. The Solomon Mysteries series has really good potential and lots of interesting characters. I’m all-in on this one! Keelan Ellis has a second installment in the works, High Time, and there’s a sneak peek at the end of this novel.
