    Interesting Mystery

    4 stars Synopsis: Guy is sent by his friend, who owns a publishing house, to see if a potential new author really is a plagiarist. He has been accused by his sister of stealing their father's last works. Cam is working as an ecologist in northern Canada to try and catalogue a new species of rabbit. Cam doesn't want to talk about the book that he has written, so Guy volunteers to help him with his environmental surveys of the animals so that Cam will have more time to write. Guy has been accused by various boyfriends of having no feelings, and showing no emotions, but Cam says that Guy wears his emotions on his face. Guy is frustrated by the fact that Cam never seems to write, and worried about the fact that Cam also seems to never sleep. As Guy gets used to Cam and understands his cryptic way of talking, he realizes that there is more to Cam than what there seems. What I liked: that Guy doesn't trust Cam just because he's attracted to him. He wanted to help him, but he didn't necessarily believe in the rabbit species, or in Cam's writing ability. I also liked that Guy kept trying to figure things out, and was very protective of Cam even without the full truth. The build in relationship between Guy and Cam didn't follow the usual patterns, because Cam was anything but usual, and Guy appreciated every facet of Cam. I liked that Cam could see Guy as he really was, with all his emotions and questions. What I didn't like: the story purportedly takes place in Nunavut, which is a territory in northern Canada. However, close to the end, the story talks about an event taking place in northern Manitoba, which is a Canadian province. Also, Cam got confused about Guy's name, and thought it was the generic "guy", and kept using that. Guy thought that Cam had been living in Canada too long if that was his first thought, instead of the name. Me: huh, nobody I talk to or know uses guy that way. If people don't know someone's name, they are more apt to use "buddy" than "guy". (Hey, buddy, come over here.) Overall impression: for most of the story, about 2/3 of it, I felt as though I was reading in 3/4 time and the story was taking place in 4/4 time, or 2/4 time. (This also happens every time I re-read LOTR, and I wonder why I keep the books around until about the 100pg mark, when I finally get in the correct reading rhythm.) Something like that, anyway. It just felt as though we weren't on the same wavelength as story and reader, which made it a little hard to connect with the characters. In spite of that, though, I enjoyed the story and found the character study of both Guy and Cam to be really interesting. This was told from Guy's POV, singular person, with a little bit from Cam's POV at the end. I think that this author has great promise, and I will definitely read more. *I received a ARC copy from the publisher through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review*
