Trowchester Blues by Alex Beecroft

Michael May is losing it. Long ago, he joined the Metropolitan Police to escape his father's tyranny and protect people like himself. Now his father is dead, and he's been fired for punching a suspect. Afraid of his own rage, he returns to Trowchester-and to his childhood home, with all its old fears and memories. When he meets a charming, bohemian bookshop owner who seems to like him, he clings tight.

Fintan Hulme is an honest man now. Five years ago, he retired from his work as a high-class London fence and opened a bookshop. Then an old client brings him a stolen book too precious to turn away, and suddenly he's dealing with arson and kidnapping, to say nothing of all the lies he has to tell his friends. Falling in love with an ex-cop with anger-management issues is the last thing he should be doing.

Finn thinks Michael is incredibly sexy. Michael knows Finn is the only thing that still makes him smile. But in a relationship where cops and robbers are natural enemies, that might not be enough to save them.

I have read several of Alex Beecroft's novels and I find them all to be just different enough to make them very interesting to read. I have just finished the first in her series titled "Trowchester Blues" and I really enjoyed the read. It has everything one wishes to have in a good read. It has romance, adventure, mystery, misunderstandings, good sex, some unusual plot twists, and yes, a good joyful cry! I will certainly read the next two books in the series.

Michael May is having a bad day and by the end of it, he is no longer a MET officer in London, and heading home to the fourth smallest city in the country where is dad has left him a house, and boat yard. While there and clearing out the junk his late father accumulated over the years, he’s struck by old flashback memories of is unhappy childhood and ghosts of his past. He runs into a book seller, Finn and together they help Michael discover not only the ghost, but help Finn resolve some issues in his own past. Ok, I really wanted to like this story, I can’t put my figure on what I didn't enjoy but I didn't. I've read tons of British authors and growing up in England I have no problem with reading the different styles of writing and verbiage. I just couldn’t connect with these characters.  Michael was pleasant enough, Finn was charming. The bad guy’s just evil enough. And I would have enjoyed having Tea in the tea shop. Two more in the series, I’ll give them an ago because I really do think I would like them.  I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review by Crystals Many reviews
