4-1/2 Stars I'm going to start by saying that immediate attraction bordering on insta-love is not for everyone and I understand that but when its done right than its amazing. Well, for me Dinner at the Blue Moon Cafe is done right. I say "immediate attraction bordering on insta-love" because I think it's pretty instant on Sam's part and for Thad its nearly there but he's afraid to completely embrace it. I loved seeing inside the mind of the killer in this story, its not something that always works, it can distract from the couple at the heart of the story, but Rick R Reed makes it work here. I get why Sam is leary to reveal everything to Thad and I equally get why this makes Thad hesitant to completely open his heart to Sam but more than once I just wanted to bang their heads together and scream "Communicate!". Throw in Thad's new friend Jared, which some might call an obstacle to the couple being happy but I call just plain awesome. Jared is a fun character that gives Thad some much needed companionship but it also gives him reasons to guard his heart, to grow, and gives his protective side reason to show. All in all, Dinner at the Blue Moon Cafe is a brilliant read that ticked my paranormal, romance, mystery boxes and it also touched on my love of horror as well making this a perfect read for October.

Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. Jumping straight in, because I'm not really sure I liked this book. I DID finish it, although it was touch and go. What I DID like about it, is that we heard from the whodunnit type person, which is kinda vague, I know, but if you read the book you'll understand what I mean. You know I love hearing from the bad guy, or guys, plural, in this case. And while its . . . . .messy . . . reading, its good reading. For almost ALL the book, its Thad having a say. His friend Jared gets a couple of paragraphs, as well, as the aforementioned bad guys. BUT! Sam ONLY gets a few lines! Had Sam had more of a say, I think I would have enjoyed it more. I wanted to know what he thought about Thad, about his son, and his sister. About who might be doing the murders, and about how Sam felt, when he learned (learnt?? I still cannot get that one right!) the horrible truth. I did like that I didn't get who was doing the murders, not til it all became clear. Did enjoy being kept on my toes. But when the other bad guy steps up, that was immediately clear who that was. I'm just not sure the story itself worked for me, or maybe it was Thad himself, since he gets the biggest say. I dunno. But like I said, I did finish it, and I promised myself if I finish a book, it should get at least . . . . . 3 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**
