Beachcomber Test by Stephanie Queen

Ex-special ops legend Dane Blaise is staking his life on passing every one of his partner Shana's tests for him. Desperation to keep her with him must be making him crazy or he would never have agreed to take the divorce case.
Tough and gorgeous ex-Scotland Yard detective Shana George never expected much from men romantically speaking, but Dane made her crazy enough to hope. Too many times she came close to leaving. Now she can't live through another round of dashed hope without leaving for good. This case could be her last.
But Even a simple divorce case turns dangerous for Beachcomber Investigations while Dane & Shana's resolve to stay together is tested.

Shana put Dane through some tests to make sure he was the right man for her. She started by taking a cheating spouse case knowing Dane didn’t want that type of case. But he agreed to it anyway. He would do anything for her. Their cheating spouse case became very dangerous when they found the spouse dead. Dane and Shana had their work cut out for them. Especially Dane since he had to pass Shana’s tests while investigating the murder. I loved the way this pair worked so well together. They were able to put their personal relationship aside and focus on the case. Other than both often thinking they would like to be having have sex with the other. I liked the characters, especially Shana and Dane. They both had exceptional training before starting their investigation business. Shana had been a Scotland Yard detective and Dane was ex-special ops. Their police friend, Cap, was a big help in the investigation, as always. It was cute how Gable wanted to help with the investigation. I liked him and how Dane tried to make him feel important by giving him jobs to do. While this was a really good mystery, it was emotional, too. There was humour, sadness and tension. I felt bad for Penny. She was the wife of the cheater/murdered man. She learned a lot of things she didn’t want to know. It was odd seeing Dane so unsure of himself in this book. He was worried that he wouldn’t pass Shana’s tests. He didn’t want to lose her. This caused her to always on his mind and thinking about how hot Shana was and how he wanted to have sex with her. It got tiresome hearing this. I loved this book and highly recommend it. If you like mysteries with a little romance, you’ll like Beachcomber Test.

4 stars I purchased The Beachcomber Test by Stephanie Queen and this review was given freely. Sometimes flirty and sometimes serious one liners pepper the banter between Shana and Dane providing both humorous and relief to the serious murder/sting operation and the steamy romance contained in this novella.

Beachcomber Test by Stephanie Queen is the 7th book in her Beachcomber Investigations series that is fondly called “a romantic detective series”. This is my first read and as I have always been a fan of detective stories I jumped in feet first (why the hell not when the leads are a tough and gorgeous ex-Scotland Yard detective and an ex-special ops legend working as a private-eye on Martha’s Vineyard. I guess you could read this story as a standalone like I did but after finishing it, I have to admit, I wish I had read at least some of the stories before! This particular story is a simple divorce case turning into a dangerous affair and I am sure the ex-special ops legend Dane Blaise cursed the day when the gorgeous ex-Scotland Yard Shana George made him crazy enough to take the follow-the-cheating-spouse case! I loved their chemistry; I loved their idiosyncrasies, their perception of each other, their drive, their close friends and their local ‘fans’. I promise you couple of phenomenal hours where you laugh and bite your nails and once you get to the end, you will seriously consider giving yourself a Christmas present aka the first 6 books and novellas of the Beachcomber Investigations! You will not regret! And you might even start considering a short trip over to the Vineyard …

Beachcomber Test: Beachcomber Investigations Book 7 - a Romantic Detective Series By Stephanie Queen 5 Stars I seriously never want this series to end, I love these people. Dane and Shana have come a long way and although you see hope that there might be a future for these two outside of their “business partnership”, I still see where there could still be so many more obstacles for them and those are the most fun to read about in my opinion. I have stated before in other reviews how much I love Cap and Acer and this book made me want even more stories maybe focussing on them a bit more. I still think this would make an amazing TV show and can't quite make up my mind who would play who if that happened, I just know Id watch it over and over just like I plan to come back and read this series over and over. The writing style of this author just gets better and better with each book I read, turning pages so fast because the action just never ends, and there's never ever a dull moment. You seriously have to read these books in order to fully appreciate these characters. Ronnie is still a favorite as well and I'm thinking there could be many stories ahead involving him. This was an amazing addition to this already amazing series and I can not wait for more!!

Loved this book! Another winner in the Beachcomber Investigations series! It's a rare find to find a series where each subsequent book is better than the prior book in the series, but this series does that. I loved the characters and the way their relationship has evolved and changed over the books and absolutely loved the ending. This is a stand alone novel, however it's so good that you really owe it to yourself to read them all. I'm already looking forward to the next book in the series. The author is on my must read authors' list, and, if you're a fan of the genre, should probably be on yours as well.
