Summary:

Rory Donovan’s life is a hot mess. His marriage is failing and he’s in intensive psychotherapy, working through the unfortunate side effects of memories from a childhood trauma. The only thing good in his life right now is his job—teaching photography to gifted high school students.

Harbor Patrol officer Bennett Foster is co-parenting his teenage daughter with his high school best friend Jessie. When he meets Addison’s teacher and realizes they’ve met before, he can’t get the sexy stranger out of his head.

Striking up a sexual-tension-filled friendship, together they must help an angsty teenager deal with a dying friend. Bennett must keep his little family from falling apart while Rory struggles to come to terms with his new reality. Somewhere along the way, most unexpectedly…love happens.

Short & Sweet: Titus McGinty is a lot of things: a small business owner, a pretty decent roommate, openly gay, and an outcast from his Romany tribe. Oh, and he sees dead people. It’s the last bit that gets him in trouble, when he starts seeing the ghosts of a serial killer. It doesn’t help that the man he’s crushing on, Detective Charlie Hale, is desperate to find the killer… and Titus knows more about the victims than any normal person should!

My Thoughts: This was a really fun read from start to finish, although it definitely has its ups and downs.

Titus’ ability to see and speak with ghosts is something that he’s never accepted, and he goes out of his way to avoid the spirits trying to speak with him. But when the ghosts become more insistent, he realizes that they’re all victims of the same killer. On the ‘normal’ side of the case is Detective Charlie Hale. He’s gay, but deep in the closet. His attraction to Titus leads him to give a gay relationship a try, but he quickly realizes that Titus is hiding something about the case.

I love crime dramas, and I love novels with a fun cast of characters. Every character in Shadows Fall is quirky in the best of ways; everyone knows someone like the unreliable Riot, or has a grumpy relative like Hester, so the characters were easy to relate to.
