Private Investigator Sam Garrett is chosen by Mozart Chance to solve the case of Mozart Chance’s death. A possible murder with four suspects, one of the suspects happens to be Sam’s live-in lover Rex Ford.

Monsters Under the Bed is the fourth book in the Lifting the Veil series. The multifaceted plot is well written. The characters are creditable. Sam and Ford are former detectives. After resigning from the San Francisco police force, Ford became a landscape artist, while Sam chose to be a P.I. Sam is well suited for his line of business, he has perfect recall, is ambidextrous, a speed-reader as well as highly developed at solving riddles, even in his dreams. After Ford’s life changing event, Ford is now content to love and be loved by Sam in addition to tending his gardens.

As the mystery unfolds Sam realizes that the monsters are not always of the mystical variety waiting to terrify individuals. Humans can be monsters hiding in plain sight until they reveal the evil lurking behind their pleasant facade. One of the suspects is a monster willing to commit murder for Mozart "Mo" Chance’s fortune. However, Monsters Under the Bed also features interludes of sizzling intimacy between Sam and Ford as well as a brief moment of humor brought on by a random cupid attack. 

Susan Laine has created a superb romantic suspense saga blending engaging characters with an exceptionally enjoyable detailed plot.
