    BEAUTIFUL OMG I loved this book Granted I didn't like the first half It felt like a rehash of what we had to suffer through with Adrien and Jake at their lowest Not to mention that Sam and Jason are separated by location for most of the book AND SIMPLY DIDN'T COMMUNICATEBUT once Sam and Jason are together on the same page no kidding things hit off so beautifully that I was literally drooling 3 3 3Their sex is one of the hottest moments in any Lanyon novel I thinkI also LOVE how revealing bits and pieces about Sam who AGAIN didn't get his own POV a true 'mystery guy' resulted in establishing Sam and Jason as a perfectly independent couple I hope with no Adrien Jake vibes The plot was well done again I absolutely loved the atmosphere Misty Camden Island with its many graveyards The ruined clock tower BreathtakingOnce again a real masterpiece even though I kind of suffered through the first half alongside Jason A truly great book 2 in that awesome Art of Murder series I cannot wait for book 3And I LOVE the connection to Winter Kill I want to see of Agent Darling ; 5 stars and a favorite

    Eight months after the events from The Mermaid Murders there hasn't been much progress in the Jason Kennedy romance department They've talked on the phone a few times and occasionally let loose the odd innuendo or two but nothing concrete When they finally do meet Kennedy's body language all but telegraphs 'gentle letdown' to Jason Lucky for him there's plenty of art crime to keep our protagonist busy like the overly grisly one responsible for finally bringing him face to face with Kennedy in the first placeOn a less depressing note Jason finally realizes that the good press he's been basking in for the last few years has been master minded by the unofficial president of his fan club truly flattering but possibly not the smartest thing to act on YOU HEAR ME JASON?Additionally his well meaning older sisters positively insist on throwing him a teeny tiny birthday party 100 guests where they're very helpfully threatening to set him up on a blind date So yeah life's just grand for one Jason WestThis book was confusing On the one hand I so wanted to get interested in the murder mystery solving process but I couldn't really decide on which one to focus Jason's ongoing investigations into evil double crossing gallery business the horrifying Monet fanatic serial killer or the very subtle creepy vibe presented by the deranged psychologist from the preuel In the end I just stopped caring and focused my energy on Jason's love life Or lack there of whichever way you want to put itAnother aspect I greatly enjoyed was finding out about Jason's family background Although there had been some hints in the previous book it is here that we finally see the scale of his parents' and siblings' connection to the upper crust To say nothing of the fan service in getting to see him casually wearing a tuxedo amidst a grisly crime scene wags eyebrowsWhat I didn't enjoy was the focus put on the the artistic aspect of things And I don't just mean the murders Wait wait wait let me explainI realize that for members of the art crime division an interest in art is crucial or at least recommended but that doesn't make me personally less of a philistine when it comes to appreciating the classics Get me a Dali and I'll happily spend an hour puzzling over the clever juxtaposition of the various creepy details in his paintings Heck I'm even willing to give an approving nod to the Renaissance masters Impressionism and expressionism have never left much of a lasting ugh impression on me So don't be surprised to see me run away screaming when you throw a Tiffany stained glass window in the mixScore 285 starsOnce again it was the romance between Kennedy and Jason that had me reach for the seuel posthaste even though this particular installment proved to be somewhat unsatisfying in that regard What can I say Kennedy just knows how to make a well timed confession Incidentally those puppy dog eyes of his should be illegal rarely have I felt this guilty about judging a fictional character too uickly fidgets uncomfortablyReview of book 1 The Mermaid MurdersReview of book 3 The Magician MurdersReview of book 4 The Monuments Men Murders

    Worth the wait for a crazy little thing called love and murderJason West is working a case of art fraud when a calling card is left by the Santa Monica pier Not far from the swanky hotels A summons for his expertise brings him back into contact with Sam Kennedy That fire has been banked while they each pursue their respective careers separated by a continent Will it be stoked?So this was a lovely installment in the SamJason story and the mystery was good and gruesome Higher flying with art world money front and center and we learn a bit of Jason's background which is definitely rarified than most This one's a roller coaster so hold on tight

    I’ve been trying to write a coherent review for a while but I’m in danger of going into stupid fangirl mode so this is me trying to keep it simple and conciseI started this book this whole series really with the expectation that I’d end up disappointed and in a weird way that may have been a good thing because so far it didn’t happenThe best thing of this book for me was the relationship development the mystery was interesting but also kind of confusing and fragmented with too many cases intersecting By the time Jason figured out who the unsub was I’d almost forgotten that character even existed What really worked for me was Jason and Sam’s dynamic This is only the second of five books and it shows it’s clear that they’re only just beginning to make some progress after they connected in the first book but I love how they interact When I don’t want to smack him upside the head for it it amuses me to no end how Sam who’s so competent on human psychology when it comes to his job can be so obtuse and make such a mess of his personal life Not that Jason doesn’t have his moments view spoilersleeping with a reporter who a idolized him and clearly wanted than sex and b was involved in his investigation only because he was depressed after Sam dumped him was stupid on so many levels I don’t even know where to start hide spoiler

    45 starsThe waiting was worth it The second installment didn't disappoint a great mystery charismatic characters and a lot of FEELINGS I’m a BIG fan of Art Crime novels unfortunately I haven’t come across them too often in the LGBT genre With The Art of Murder series Josh Lanyon killed two birds with one stone for me I don't literally mean the number of deaths in this book it is slightly My mystery soul is extremely happy and my romance soul is completely satisfied Let’s talk about the mystery Ve ry complex ve ry creepy with a brilliantly created spooky environment and thrilling atmosphere Wow James West FBI Special Agent of the Art Crime Team investigates a fraud in Fletcher Durrand Gallery Legendary FBI profiler Sam Kennedy who since their last case together in Massachusetts has promoted to chief of the FBI Behavior Analysis Unit hunts a serial killer who leaves a Monet painting at the crime scenes And Christopher Shipka a reporter for the Valley Voice on his private mission to find out what happened to the German art student Paris Havemeyer almost 20 years ago But hold on tight there are much The fact that all these cases are connected hasn’t come totally unexpected Key word ARTWhat took me and not just me by surprise was a cold and very reserved appearance of Sam at the crime scene and how he purposely ignored his almost boy friend At least it was what we all truly believed didn’t we? As if there were no Massachusetts and passion PURE as if there were no those eight months of sensual phone calls What the hell is going on? Sam tries to stay aloofly official; James tries to hide his hurt confusion and embarrassment Sam pretends they are just good friends James needs an explanationAnd then this case they have to work together on A COMPLICATED mayhem of feelings The best prereuisites for an emotional romance with a lot of sexual tension With Sam James interaction Josh Lanyon fulfilled all the most high expectations of the most critical readers of romance novelsHighly enjoyable and beautiful MM Romance Mystery that left you craving for ARC provided by the author to GBR in exchange for an honest review

    Okay so after reading the real final I'm gonna give this one a 5er Wooooop So I guess I'm waiting on an updated version of the book because there was some kinda problem Whoops I'm still waiting on it sooooo yep Will change my review accordingly haha Original reviewWait what?Okay So close to 5 stars But like Okay Where to start?I love the romance in this book I adore it It's not easy and it's not all hearts and rainbows Not to say it's filled with angst but these are messy relationships between people who okay don't always put 'love' first Which is realistic That's the case for a lot of people I can relate I can appreciate that It makes the happiest of the happy moments betterI really enjoyed the time spent between Sam and Jason in this edition Except their lack of communication could be frustrating but I kind of enjoyed thatThe mystery was incredibly interesting I loved it just as I did in the first book Really interesting side characters a really sweet ass island which reminded me of the one from The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo Artwork money privilege uestions AwesomeThings I didn't loveUh Jason seemed a little whiny in this? I think he was a tiny bit whiny in this book And insecure And his constant monologues about how he feels about Sam were getting a little overdoneAnnnnd the big thing I didn't love This is a big one and I imagine most if not all reviews are going to at least mention itview spoilerWe don't find out who the killer was Or killers There were layers and layers of mystery but no resolution of the mystery and definitely no resolution of the romance hide spoiler

    325 starsHmmm I am not entirely loving this one It's because of preference of the mystery I guess When Jason is being called into crime scene of a murdered art buyer with a fake Monet painting on site and how Sam says that the painting is the calling card of a serial killer I was ecstatic I love serial killer in my mystery It's my favorite theme probablyUnfortunately afterwards Jason isn't exactly involved with the serial killer case That is Sam's case And Sam is pretty much missing in this book because he is juggling many cases including apparently Adam Darling's case that is written previously in Winter Kill since this book and that one sort of overlapped Instead Jason's main case is investigating the fraud and grand larceny against Durrand brothers who operate an art gallery Sure it IS Jason's expertise he is the Art Crime Team agent after all but to me it was slightly BORING I'm not that into white collar cases where they only 'victims' are pretty much rich people and nobody is dead Maybe I'm a little blood thirsty when it comes to my mystery but I definitely prefer corpses than paintingsIn short I wasn't invested with Jason's case and because he is the MAIN narrator of this book I was having a rather difficult time to keep my attention In addition I was slightly annoyed with Jason's insecurities in this book He keeps thinking about the relationship problem with Sam At times I thought it made him lost his focus on the case Lanyon's brand of angst didn't completely work for me this time around because to me Jason became a little too immature and whiny Even if I realize that there is thirteen years age gap between him and Sam and a totally different life experience andor the way they are dealing with relationshipI WAS really interested with the other part of the mystery though the one that the reporter Chris Shipka pretty much introduces to Jason A case of missing teenager possibility being raped and murdered and how it might be even the key to everythingI guess for me this one is slightly than okay but I can't say that I really like it

    I was looking forward to catching up with Jason and Sam having read listen to the audio of The Mermaid Murders not too long agoIt's been about eight months since the plotcase of the first books where also Sam and Jason finally gave into temptation and fell into bed with each other Sam held back though but was frank about it telling Jason he wasn't a man to be involved with But Sam couldn't keep away from Jason and they tentatively agreed on a future dinner date when their paths crossed againSince then they haven't met but they have kept in touch There has been numerous late night casual talk that they both appreciated When Jason gets called in to a scene by Sam in the city Jason lives Jason gets a cold shoulder from Sam It's like they haven't met or haven't had all those phone conversations Jason doesn't get it but he doesn't push It seems like Sam's case and Jason's case is connected Jason is tracking down a person of interest who has been reluctant to meet him cancelling several appointments to talk To sort of force the guy to talk Jason follows him to his family home which is situated on an island in the middle of nowhere in upstate New York It's remote and only accessible by boat Jason has also got a journalist dogging his stepsThe island was so eerie and creepy It had a feeling of you just know something bad is going to happen It was such a great atmosphere to read Most of the plot takes place on the islandSam was the frustratingly standoffish love interest but he finally loosened up a little and revealed something about himself Jason is a sweetheart I felt he pined a bit too much for Sam I would have loved for him to tell Sam off since he was being a jerk But that's how Josh Lanoyn's character works And I love the dynamic even though it can frustrate me to death sometimeThis was a typical solid Josh Lanyon murder mystery with suspense and romance I'm looking forward to the audio coming out hopefully this fall and a third book with Jason and Sam sometime next yearRecommended if you like Josh Lanyon's murder mysteries Note that this is not a standalone book read The Murmaid Murders first
