favorites A true Lanyon masterpiece I wanted to love this bookIt is, Josh Lanyon, after all And the reviews have been so glowing and I ve kinda been saving it for a day when I needed a good read.Unfortunately, it only just sorta kinda worked for me I did love Perry Foster, the sweet, asthmatic, but strong willed young MC He is one of those endearing characters that you want to hug and take care of and just to be happy.The problem is the rest of the book.For the first 2 3 of the book Nick Reno, former Navy SEAL, grouchy, bris I wanted to love this bookIt is, Josh Lanyon, after all

book Nick Reno, former Navy SEAL, grouchy, bristly even, and Perry s eventual love interest, was such a jerk And portrayed as a homophobe of sorts And really difficult to warm to.And then there was the mystery plot that was kind of all over the place.And then there were the inconsistencies of the story especially Nick and his sudden yup, I m gay reveal.And then the fact that by the end, I really didn t care even though I got my HEA of sorts because it didn t all fit.And so it goes decent enough readnot my favorite but entertaining nonetheless #DOWNLOAD BOOK Ò The Ghost Wore Yellow Socks ß

Christie umm Josh Lanyon mystery plot with a sweet romance Stars Well Lanyon is a Lanyon, is a Lanyon, nothingto say on that score.This was an easy flowing read I wish that such easy was not so difficult to come across I liked the old haunted manor atmosphere pervading the whole book, almost expected Scooby Doo and Shaggy to pop out of the rain.Loved the reluctant, cynical Nick, his observations were stringent, to the point and often cutting He seemed to be always so sure in his opinions and the path he was going to follow It warmed my heart to se Well Lanyon is a Lanyon, is a

and the path he was going to follow It warmed my heart to see this challenged time and again And Perry, seemingly so fragile but I saw strength there We can t be strong in everything we do, most of the time we are a mixture strength and weakness and these characters showed this well.I think this is going to turn out to be one of my favorite Lanyon s This is the cutest story I ve ever read This book has a real cinematic quality, for me reading it was like being in a theater and watching the movie.At the beginning of the story we meet Perry at his worst he s coming back from an unfortunate romantic trip, he s exhausted and the discovery of the corpse in his tub brings him an asthma attack Enters Nick, the ex Navy Seal, who just can t help remarking how delicate and helpless and queer

Enters Nick, the ex Navy Seal, who just can t help remarking how delicate and helpless and queer Perry is Exits the corpse Was it Perry s imagination Was it a ghost Nick seems the only one who wants to believe that what Perry saw was real.I couldn t help wondering how the author would bring Nick and Perry together, but it s done by grades and it s extremely exciting it begins with Nick noticing Perry s Bambi look and it progresses to Nick noticing Perry s tight ass For the reader it s incredibly entertaining.Perry and Nick seem to live in a nut house and everybody looks guilty or like they re hiding something There is always something happening and although the mystery is light, you feel involved in what s happening and the ties of it to the past.Perry is a damsel in distress, but he s not really helpless He is sunny, cheerful, respectful, a good boy, but above all he s a bit unlucky It s easy to understand how Nick ends being attracted to him He treats Perry as if he was a little kid, but he can t help admiring his art, his courage and the fact that life seems to try to knock him out but he always stands back up.I d recommend this book to everyone, it s impossible to put it down Nick and Perry are both great characters, but Perry is really irresistible I couldn t resists a re read or in my case, I re listen to in anticipation of The Ghost Had an Early Check Out Truly, one of my favorite JL stand alones yet I loved the main characters and the way their romance went was just perfection Great mystery with a really fun group of secondary characters.As far as the audio version went 3 stars for the narrator, Max Miller, his narration was way too slow so I went up to 1.25 on the speed which helped a bit The variety in his characters was good, I couldn t resists a re

like view spoiler Perry He is 23 years old I understand, Perry is supposed to play a twink role, but I expectedmature behaviour from a guy of this age I couldn t also imagine that the only relationship in his life was an internet friendship that ended before it really started I didn t feel that the relationship between Nick and Perry were already so far for a magical L word They slept in tital how many 2 times with each other, and they couldn t suddenly live without each other I understand the sense of HEA here, I understand that if I want it, I had to accept this ending, and my

one of the MCs were talking or the side characters Although the two MC POVs were hard to distinguish between each other This is because almost the same tone was used for each.The crime is committed fairly early on in the story, and we also meet Nick very near the beginning tooNick looked about thirty He had smooth olive skin and short, dark hair And those navy blue eyes He was very good looking in a stern no trespassing way About the same height as Perry, but built for action Key word muscles And when Perry and Nick finally got together it was cute although I m not sure what secret it was that Nick had maybe that he s gay But that s kinda a given Isn t it I wasn t actually expecting a murder mystery, I thought there was going to be a paranormal aspect and was really excited when this happened Ghosts I ve heard that from him too I think he gets it from David Mr Center You know he Mr Center claims he only moved here because the place is haunted I should start reading the blurbs, to find out whether they are paranormal, mystery, romance etc, but they always contain spoilers It s easier to go off of recommendations and average rating from friends, and just hope for the best It was surprisingly funny also, which I wasn t expecting because I thought it would just be about the case There aren t too many secondary characters, and the ones that are there are incredibly interesting I ll split the cost with you, Jane jumped in We ll make it a threesome She gave Nick a sly smile.The mystery was also quite interesting, but what happened to the jewels There weren t too many characters overall cops, other residents etc to keep track of, although I did forget the odd one.There were only four things that I felt were wrong with the story, where the chapters seem to skip quickly from one point to another with no clear ending.Another is that the person they were looking for was really obvious, and could have only been them from Nick s description that they had to be view spoiler fit and strong hide spoiler , and when Perry has a run in with the assailant he says that they are view spoiler meaty, fat, pudgy hide spoiler and who could that be, really My third dislike is that there wasn t much romance, it happened near the end and didn t last long, maybe 20 minutes.And another, a small one there were no intense kissing scenes, and they re my favourite It was written well and was interesting if not predictable And may convince me to seek outmurder mysteries
