Literary Nymphs Reviewer: Critter Nymph

Matt D’Marco is a strong, tough, Alpha cop whose marriage has fallen apart. Not only does he have an ex-wife to contend with, but he also has to find out whose killing little blond haired boys before more die. Paul is a psychic who moved away from his home town in order to be happy. Only a cry for help from his brother-in-law would bring him back.

Paul’s D’Marco brings together two men, neither of whom have had successful relationships. To say the chemistry between them is intense would be an understatement as they burn up the pages as soon as they meet. The author has thrown them into a situation where they are together 24/7, giving them plenty of time to learn about each other. The mystery surrounding the deaths of the young boys will keep you guessing and if you watch a lot of crime dramas, you just may be able to figure out who the bad guy is.

Author Leiland Dale has written a very interesting, fast paced, novella that is part crime drama and part paranormal. The characters draw you in from the beginning and hold your interest until the end. One of the things I enjoyed the most about this story is that it is told from the view point of both main characters. I admit that in the beginning I was a little worried that it would make the story confusing but it works out well. The relationship between Paul and Matt could easily be worked into more than one sequel and I hope to read more about them soon.
