  • great follow up to Murder and Mayhem

    Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian I was gifted my copy of this book. Rook is trying to go straight, but cousin Harold has his damn bird. Then he find Harold dead, and the bodies keep on coming. Dante just wants to wrap Rook up and keep him safe. This is book two in the series and it would help greatly to read book one, Murder and Meyhem, first. Not totally necessary, though. And I struggled with this one and it pains me deeply that I didn't love it as much as book one!! It's well written, from both Rook and Dante's point of view, in a way only Ms Ford can tell her tales. Those throw away last chapter lines that make you go "say what,now??" And make you question what you just read, and make me think I missed something. It's messy, what with dead cousins and heads in boxes and shootings and things. Its sexy in places, with the love the love the two men have for each other coming off every page and showing in everything they do for each other. And I did not get whodunnit til it was revealed in the book. So why did I struggle?? No flipping idea. I DID enjoy it, it just took me far longer than it should have. So, because of that, 4 stars.

    Thanks for your feedback!

    Tramps and Thieves picks up a few months after the conclusion of Murder and Mayhem, the first book in the series. This is definitely a book that will feel incomplete if read as a standalone as it’s a continuation of Dante and Rook’s romance. Once again, the imagery Miss Ford uses impressed me and I found myself more than happy to slip back into this romantic suspense set in Los Angeles, wherein a cop and reformed thief fall in love. The second book had a bit of a different start for me. As in the first book, the story opens with Rook finding himself in the precarious position of having a dead body linked to him. Though the set-up was similar, it didn’t draw me in quite as quickly as the mystery in Murder and Mayhem. The suspense steadily built, just at a slower pace, but I again found myself surprised by some of the reveals. While I wasn’t as intrigued with the mystery element at first, I immediately noticed a change in approach to the relationship. In the first book, Rook and Dante’s relationship was just beginning, and the minimal emotional development happening on page left me disappointed. Tramps and Thieves offered all I missed in the first book, and then some. The second book focuses on the relationship deepening, examining the men’s feelings for one another and their struggle over how to label what they’re building. I really liked how the author used the established personalities of Rook and Dante to explore their emotional chemistry. Though they waded through similar feelings of love and uncertainty, the concerns were framed uniquely to their experiences, staying true to their individual voices and adding more depth to the characters and romance. As in the first book, the physical chemistry between Rook and Dante was blistering and there were a fair number of scorching scenes; but I was incredibly happy to see that physical chemistry align with an emotional chemistry in the second book to deliver a wonderful love story. I think fans of romantic suspense will enjoy both of these books which deliver on multiple fronts- excellent characters, humor, fantastic dialogue, lively action, intrigue, sexiness, and a really strong emotional connection that deepens over the course of the two novels. I’m not sure if this is the end of the series, but I certainly wouldn’t mind revisiting this colorful cast of characters in the future. *Reviewed for Alpha Book Club*
